Blue On Blue: Al-Qaeda In The Police

So says the Mail’s front-page headline. And there is a whispered aside: “(but they don’t dare sack them).”

Having learnt how inadequate NHS equipment scuppered the bombers’ murderous plans in London – the syringes failed – can we now expect the police to be issued with dud goods?

Gordon Brown’s patriotic and lives-first last act as chancellor was to apparently slash the NHS hospital building and equipment budget in England by almost a third, from £6.2 billion to £4.2 billion.

Will police funds now be cut to save us all?

In case the paraphenalia of law and order falls into the wrongs hands, all police will be issued with foam truncheons and their pepper spray replaced by Eau Du Bovver, a lively fragrance with top notes of calming St John’s wort and Prozac.

The Mail talks of eight suspected Islamic militants working for the boys in blue. There is talk of them attending terror training camps in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Their names feature on a secret list of alleged radicals. One “suspected jihadist officer working in the South East has been allowed to keep his job despite being caught circulating Internet images of beheadings and roadside bombings in Iraq.”

Makes a change form the usual police emails of naked women and jokes about the Irish. But it is no less worrying.

All the information is in a police dossier, drawn up with the help of MI5. Of course, we should not overlook the likelihood that the security services are riddled with double agents and the MI5 document is a ruse to deflect attention from the real enemy within.

We are invited to wonder why the second device parked near Haymarket was left at a designated “evacuation assembly point”, where civilians and the emergency services would have gathered had the first bomb gone off. Was this known to the bombers?

As the Mail rightly notes, in November last year, it was revealed that a leading member of an extremist Islamic group was working as a senior official at the Home Office.

They are among us. So why are they not sacked?

The Mail has an answer. It says they are protected by “political correctness”. And maybe – just maybe – because they haven’t broken any laws…
