World Weary Detective – This is the End: I have committed no crime. I have compromised no police operations. I have received no payment for anything published on this blog. All opinions expressed are my own. It is therefore with deep regret and great sadness that I must announce that I will no longer be submitting posts to this blog. I cannot challenge New Scotland Yard. I am weary indeed and cowardice is my bedmate. The protection of my family must take precedence. To each and every one of you – take note of what has happened here and be afraid.
(Cheers to Seamus O’Blimey for the heads-up.)
Bob Piper’s comment is worth highlighting: WWD, I think you should continue. You do not publish defamatory material, offensive or inappropriate remarks or anything which would compromise operations. You give people a valuable insight into what a bloody difficult job you have. At times ‘lefties’ like me need a reminder about some of the complex duties the police have to carry out.
… but I think that if WWD judges this development to be too great a risk (or perhaps a veiled threat) then we should respect the call.
