No Excuses Dick – Shame On Those Trying To Suggest Dame Cressida Dick As Little Miss Innocent

Ghislaine Maxwell’s schoolmate Dame Cressida Dick’s bleating about her deserved demise should be called out as the disgrace that it truly is; with her turfed out with the trash it is now time for institutional change at the Met Police; no excuses should be accepted

“She felt intimidated by the Mayor of London” before her resignation claimed some blithering bore of Dame Cressida Dick DBE, QPM on Radio 4’s ‘PM’ last night in spite of the fact that all this useless woman achieved between 2017 and 2022 as Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis.


Born in 1960, just like her Oxford school and university mate Ghislaine Maxwell – both were taught by Dame Cressida’s father Marcus Dick, a senior tutor at Balliol College – the now deservedly binned former Metropolitan Police chief’s bleatings should be treated with the contempt they well and truly deserved given she presided over and did nothing about racism and misogyny.


Responding this morning on Radio 4’s ‘Today’ programme Leroy Logan MBE, a founding member in 1994 and longtime chair of the Black Police Association, quite rightly slammed Dame Cressida’s tenur and added:


“[It is time for the Met Police to adopt a] culture that embraces a more positive culture of embracing whistleblowers… It is time for them to go against the ‘don’t grass on your colleagues’ culture.”


“They have been marking their own homework during the tenure of this last government… They have to acknowledge that they got things wrong.”


Whilst protocol was completely ignored during Dame Cressida’s tenure and public trust in law enforcement in London was very badly damaged as result, it is now time for better vetting of officers. It is also time that the Metropolitan Police spoke the truth to the powerful politicians who’ve had overly too much influence over it for far too long and with “bye, bye Boris” (and “good riddance” also) being sung in the streets on Monday, it is time for a new era of honesty and transparency.

The Met’s Catalogue of Failures – Shame on Them

There is unsurprisingly currently zero public confidence in the frankly incompetent Metropolitan Police and of it one Twitter user, June Sim, rightly stated in January 2022: “The Met has always been a byword amongst regional forces. We used to joke if you were rejected, they’ll take anybody. Not helped by the reputation confirmed by the Daniel Morgan report. Reputation already tarnished.”


Amongst the many failings of what ought to be the nation’s premier police force – aside from multiple allegations of racism and racial bias against its officers, its failure to deal with spiralling teenage murders and the many allegations of corruption and incompetence levelled at it – are:


  • 1987 – Botched investigation into the murder of Daniel Morgan.
  • 1993 – Botched investigation into the murder of Stephen Lawrence.
  • 1994 – Botched investigation into allegations that Ghislaine Maxwell operated a brothel in South Kensington.
  • 2009 – Unlawful killing of Ian Tomlinson during his arrest by Met Police officers.
  • 2005 – Shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes by Met Police officers on the orders of Cressida Dick.
  • 2013 – Strip searching of Dr Koshka Duff during her arrest for intervening during a Met Police stop-and-search of a black teenager.
  • 2014 – Bungled investigation into allegations of historic child abuse made by Carl Beech.
  • 2014 to 2015 – Failure to stop Stephen Port committing subsequent serial killings in spite of his already being linked to the death of a man outside his home.
  • 2019 – Farcical mismanagement of policing of Extinction Rebellion protests leading to a bill of £37 million in policing costs.
  • 2020 – Misconduct of Met Police officers during their investigation into the murders of Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman.
  • 2020 – Found to be 2.17 times as likely to issue fines to black people relative to the rest of the population during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.
  • 2021 – Misconduct of Met Police officers during their investigation into the disappearance of Richard Okorogheye.
  • 2021 – Met Police officer Ben Hannam found to be a member of a banned terrorist group.
  • 2021 – Shocking conduct of Met Police officers after the murder of Sarah Everard by one of their own colleagues.
  • 2022 – Apparent collaboration with Boris Johnson and his government to delay report into ‘Partygate.’
  • 2022 – Decision of Met Police to not bother continuing their investigation into the London activities of the croaked paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.


Former Metropolitan Police chief Dame Cressida Dick DBE, QPM (pictured with two other incompetent horrors, Priti Patel and Boris Johnson) quite understandably came under fire over crises under her watch that numbered the disgraceful shooting and killing of an innocent man, Jean Charles de Menezes. She was also slammed over the Met’s use of stop and search tactics, the handlings of recommendations made after the botched Operation Midland, the arrests of attendees at a candlelight vigil for murdered-by-a-serving-Met-officer Sarah Everard and complaints by the Daniel Morgan Independent Panel that she obstructed their inquiry into police corruption. Is it any surprise that by the end the public had no faith in her?

  1. Great article. I feel it’s a shame to say, but all police departments are corrupt these days and it’s been an ongoing affair for a few decades, if not more. Thanks to articles, like yours, it’s being outed.

  2. An absolute joke, this woman should have been put through the ringer and fully investigated. There were a string of stuff ups during her reign in the job, and you Matthew have listed around 20. It begs the question, how does a person get the job of top cop in the town to begin with? was it just because she is female, and we need to be seen to be doing the right thing? There have been so many sweeps under the carpet during her tenancy, there needs to be an investigation.

  3. Add the Dolphin Square demonstration in 1979 and the death of Blair Peach. The cover up was quite remarkable and the one policeman who had NO BLAME WHATSOEVER in the incident was made the scapegoat and had to resign. Think he retired to Wales and opened a flower shop.

  4. Sir Mark Rowley, the new appointed MET chief, was the one who oversaw the review before Operation Grange began after he excluded Madeleine McCann’s parents and their Tapas friends of being involved in her disappearance.
    So there will be no justice for Madeleine, cos he will never change his mind since he knows that #SecondaryDrowning caused her death cause lack of oxygen at around 2.29pm on Thursday May 3 2007.
    It looks like a conspiracy to avoid a global scandal.
    Her disappearance wasn’t a mystery but a tragic event in apartment 5A.

    It was God who took her.

    Read about this never investigated scenario on Twitter.
