Why let the truth get in the way of a good story.

Those who have suffered from wrongful arrest and unfounded allegations, in connection with serious crimes, will be pleased that Scotland Yard Commissioner Cressida Dick has stated that officers must investigate rather than blindly believe an allegation. Reportedly she said "They should keep an open mind when a victim has come forward." The current guidelines swage officers to believe alleged victims automatically (through the 'must be believed' policy).  

Since around 2010, there has been a facetious culture of suspicion, towards any person who is accused. This bull dozes through any doctrine of 'innocent until proven guilty'.

There is rumour that 'Nick' might end up being prosecuted for the deliberate wasting of police time., but this suggestion has been bouncing around for about 2 years. I have my doubts (and little faith) this will happen, because it would mean the Met and other forces facing further humiliating revelations and critism and I think there will be a desire to let sleeping dogs li
