Has anyone else noticed the remarkable similarity between Commander Christine Jones and the actor Christopher Walken?
Commander Jones has been playing the most excellent game of bullshit bingo I have ever heard in advance of the Royal Wedding. There I was with my card fully marked only 2 minutes and 17 seconds into the BBC Radio 4 interview! She should be good; she was the ‘talking head’ after the inquest into the police shooting of the armed and drunken barrister, Mark Saunders.
With weapons-grade delivery she managed to use the words robust, decisive, flexible and proportionate all in one sentence. I am well impressed, if not a little confused.
Anyone who has had to explain an incident commanded by diversity poster-boy-gone-bad Ali Dizaei deserves our respect, even if only for not running around thinking â€œWhy am I here? Why am I here? Why am I here? Please someone kill me,â€ over and over again, then holding their breath until they pass out.
Meanwhile, if you have a dozen screaming kids, tattoos on your face and neck, a slot machine addiction, you love frozen chips and microwaved pizza and are looking for the perfect day out, where you can get lagered up, wear a union jack hat, fall over, miss the last train and have a domestic on the platform before getting nicked by us for shouting racial abuse at some poor Asian kid trying to get home from work, feel free to visit London on Friday. I’m sure Commander Walken Jones will find someone to send over to deal with you.
It can be tough being anonymous policing blogger Inspector Gadget, but not, I have a grave suspicion,Â as tough as it is about to get being Commander Jones. Good luck to her and the troops on the day!
