Plodding on out the door
He gave his interview in silhouette, with his words being spoken by an actor to the local BBC news programme. Now this leaves me with two points: One, he's stupid and two, its a sad indictment of the times that we live in.
Let me take the second point first: How worrying is it that a member of the Police state that we live in is so frightened of the repercussions from the special services within his own organisation that he feels the need to hide his face--- The very special services that are run by politicians who readily send forces to depose other regimes and their special forces in the name of democracy--- The very democracy that doesn't allow its own people to speak out at the injustices of their employers: The British Government.
And finally the first point: How stupid is he. He thinks that by having his very distinctive profile shaded out, no ones going to know who he is---When, exactly, did he forget that he works for an organisation that has a forensics department with the capabilities of telling you the name and address of the gnat that bit a Pterodactyl on the nose 160,000,000 years ago. Surely he didn't think that a bad bit of BBC lighting and the voice of an out of work actor was really going to save him.
No, sadly, Mr West Mercia Detective is going down; not because of his political views or anything laudable like that, but because he's too stupid to realise that it was going to be possible to hide his identity from a building full of people whose very job it is to find out the identity of people who don't want to be found out.
