Sir Ian Blair is on His Way Out
The Sunday Times reports that Sir Ian Blair has been told privately by the Labour Chairman of the Metropolitan Police Authority, Len Duvall, that his contract will not be renewed in 2010. Sir Ian has always felt it was just the Tories who were out to get him. Now he knows different. However, with two years to go, he now knows he has lost the confidence of the MPA and the Mayor. Not a happy position for him to be in, but he has had plenty of opportunities to fall on his sword in the past. Don't expect him to do so anytime soon.
