No... Perli never said exactly what he could do.. Saunokonoko and others made their own claims imo
If you remember several posters including myself doubted he could confirm maddie dna... This is the first time there's anything directly from him and it looks like  he claims to be able to isolate a strangers profile... No sure how much use that would be


Certainly not the game changer some claimed

So is it worth dismissing?  It maybe helpful/ maybe not but worth a try.  If it wasn't helpful to do a reconstitution for the PJ to help investigate MBM's disappearance ,BUT worth while to do one for the BBC (entertainment for the masses), you have to wonder who is calling the shots here an why.

Cressida Dick has been awarded a damehood, the female equivalent of a knighthood, in Theresa May's outgoing honours list.

Standard procedure. All the previous Commissioners of the Met have been given knighthoods at some point.
I believe everything. And l believe nothing.
I suspect everyone. And l suspect no one.
I gather the facts, examine the clues... and before   you know it, the case is solved!"

Or maybe not -   Into year 13 and still no solution.

I don't have any facts and figures to back this up but it seems to me that crime may well have increased under her stewardship?  Especially violent crime eg stabbings?

At least she doesn’t have a conviction for violent assault, unlike “sir” Geoffrey Boycott l

It seems just trying to find a, reason to criticise the Met.

As I said I don't have all the fact and figures so quite possibly yes but we're not justifying a Chief Constable elsewhere receiving a dame hood or knighthood we're talking about the Met Comm receiving a dame hood.

I think she received it for years of service to the police and for achieving high rank, whether or not you think individuals should be rewarded in this manner for years of public service is another argument entirely..  Personally, I think they should do away with the whole outdated concept for everyone.

And how is that relevant to the case.  The point I'm making is that you can't see a rise in crime in isolation and infer it's down to her management when violent crime is rising everywhere.  It seems another unfair attempt to criticise the Met

Agreed.  And we can many were dished out when clearly they should not have been eg Crosby, Goodwin, Green, Savile.

Former police officer Hamish Campbell who was a senior officer in the case of Jill Dando and MM was awarded the QPM.  It remains to be seen whether or not it was deserved!  Its all a form of cronyism imo.

I believe CD has for some of the time had ultimate responsibility for Op Grange the operation tasked with investigating the disappearance of MM?

And the point I'm making is that rising crime might be well be a theme running across the length and breadth of the country but afaik Chief Constables have not been recognised for this failure by way of receiving a dame hood or knighthood?  So on what basis is CD being awarded a dame hood?

You want to blame the police fir rising crime.. I think that's illigical and unfair for several reasons

Can you point me in the direction where I have blamed the police for rising crime?  I have simply questioned CD's eligibility for a dame hood.  What exactly has she achieved during her tenure that qualifies her to receive such a reward?
