To refresh your memory, the Macpherson inquiry and subsequent report made some 70 recommendations…including opening the FOI and Race Relations act to apply to the Police.
The creation of the IPCC, new powers to discipline police officers for at least five years after their retirement and all proven “racist words or acts” should lead to disciplinary proceedings, and such behaviour should normally be punishable by dismissal.
Also, the abolishing of the centuries old ‘double-jeopardy’ rule…
When ‘Leve’ Leveson completes and presents his report, will the press face anything like the noose tightened securely around our throats-much to the delight of anti-police activists?
Will the report create classic sound bites like ”institutional racist” and the like?
Will the report change for ever the way tabloids report?
Will truth and unbiased reporting return to the newspapers?
I doubt it.
I would be surprised if anything happens but… I live in hope….
