Says the Times:
"Detailed plans are being prepared to oust Sir Ian Blair from his position as head of Scotland Yard in an attempt to halt the collapse of morale in the Metropolitan Police."
A no-name is quoted:
“He has become the issue. There comes a point when fairness has nothing to do with it and what matters is the integrity of the organisation.”
Unnamed sources should be treated with care, but the logic of those sentiments is becoming ever harder to argue with. That said, the big question for me is who would replace Sir Ian. The Guardian interviews a possible contender - Mike Fuller, Chief Constable of Kent - though he won't have endeared himself to Jacqui Smith.
