    As seems to be the custom, ineptitude is rewarded.

    Come on then, John the expert on everything. What competencies does she lack? Or is it (possibly ironically) the lack of a penis that offends?

    Well, there is the small issue that she was in charge of the operation that lead to the execution of Jean Charles de Menezes, who had nothing to do with the 2005 London terrorist bombings.

    But perhaps she she will redeem herself in her new role!

    Cheers

    There you are Beermat. The complete answer ! On her watch - the murder of an innocent.

    Now put down the tabloid and instead find out what happened. Start with the inquest.

    Dick said Menezes was not a security threat. The officers that shot Menezes were not acting on the instruction of Cressida Dick. Quite the opposite, according to at least one person close to the discussions that took place. Cressida Dick was possibly the only Commander who had said at the time that Menezes was to be detained and not shot.

    From the IPCC report (which found the Met organisationally culpable):

    "The family’s representatives list a number of failings they allege were
    made by AC Dick. AC Dick is the only person in this incident on whom
    a jury has come to a definite, unambiguous conclusion about their
    conduct. In the Health and Safety trial the jury exceptionally added a
    rider to their verdict that [then] Commander Dick had no personal
    culpability for Mr de Menezes' death".

    It's people who condemn before checking that are the problem. Then and now. I know it was 'on her watch'. Interestingly, it had only been her watch for two and a half hours when de Menezes left his flat.

    Wriggle as you like, the truth will out. She was - allegedly - in charge of the operation.

    Just 'two and a half hours' ? Why didn't you tell us all earlier. Well now, that makes all the difference.

    Not a wriggle, just salient facts that show your lazy accusations of ineptitude to be incorrect.

    Read the facts. The rules under which the autonomously-acting unit on the ground were operating as well as the flawed lines of communication were set up by Dick's predecessor in the post.
