As disgraced top Metropolitan cop Ali Dizaei starts the first night of a four year prison sentence tonight in a protected 'rule 47' cell away from other criminals but locked up with paedophiles and criminal deviants perhaps he will reflect that nemesis so often follows hubris. They will still mix gobs of snot and mucus with his food in the kitchens, and urinate in his tea, and Dizaei will no doubt be counting the days before he is transferred to a nice country open prison alongside the hedge fund traders and bent judges.
He has betrayed a special trust twice over; one, his oath to serve the Law, and second the role model he should have offered to junior officers from ethnic minorities.
One guilty man remains free today; Ian Blair. For it was Blair who promoted so many unsuitable officers above their abilities for the sake of the ideology of his political masters. If there were any real justice, Blair would be sharing Dizaei's snot-laced stew tonight.
