We know that most readers oppose 42 days (unlike this blog) but what do people think about it being an issue that stops an otherwise effective police officer from running the Met? The Sunday Telegraph suggests confusingly that Boris Johnson both "may" and "will" object to a Met Chief that supported the Government on 42 days. Such a litmus test (if it exists) may discourage police officers from making any statements on controversial issues in future – like drugs, speed cameras or stop and search. Is that a good thing?
