Watching Sir Hugh Orde on the Marr Show. Orde is perhaps the most politicised Police Officer one could conceive but he was on to argue that is is wrong to politicise the police aka the suggestion that Police Chiefs should be elected. He also got a dig in at Boris Johnson. Orde is the guy, let us recall, whose proudest achievement is to brought IRA bombers and bank robbers onto the Policing Board of Northern Ireland. When the IRA murdered people in Northern Ireland and committed the UK’s largest ever ban robbery, Sir Hugh was to the fore to suggest her had no evidence of this. What a guy. He now tours the BBC studios arguing that politics should be kept out of policing. Surreal.
