Added 21 August: I read in today's newspapers that the Metropolitan Police's clear up rate (solved cases) for burglaries now stands at a historic low of 6%
Added 22 September 2015: The Metropolitan Police has announced that it has dropped the enquiry into Lord Sewel's alleged drug taking due to "insufficient evidence". The truth is they never wanted the "case" in the first place and only put on a show to oblige Baroness d'Souza and the Press.
Added 29 March 2016: I forgot to add that in December 2015 Baroness d'Souza was herself in trouble for some fairly exotic Expenses claims. She likes to keep a car parked outside whatever she is doing inside and this can and does run into three figures each time.
