"These detectives had warned Scotland Yard that Hunt had taken out a contract to kill them and that he had links to corrupt officers and council officials. But instead, the three found themselves the target of what Mr Justice Simon last week called a 'misdirected' inquiry into baseless allegations of corruption — an inquiry which had 'undoubtedly assisted' Hunt in his efforts to avoid prosecution after he was arrested for blackmail, threats to kill and witness intimidation."
Lord Leveson - are now being harassed and sacked by their senior officers. So just how many bent coppers are there?
And what special status does the Guardian have at New Scotland Yard? No-one from that newspaper has been charged with bribing the police for information on which Murdoch hack will be fingered next, because apparently any such prosecutions wouldn't be in the public interest. Hypocritically, the Guardian is just as big a champion of Leveson as the Met's senior officers (and others with a lot to hide, such as most members of Parliament). But then to a socialist rag all pigs might well be equal, but some pigs are more equal than others.
