Never ending story...

Every time you think you've seen the last of Ali Dizaei the corrupt sod seems to worm his way back into a position of power. Promoted above his ability as a sop to multiculturalism, he became a symbol of exactly why tokenism in the name of multiculturalism was a very bad idea.
Corrupt police chief Ali Dizaei has lost his job at Scotland Yard for a second time.
The 49-year-old, who has twice been jailed for corruption, was dismissed from his post as commander after an internal disciplinary tribunal.
A spokesman for Dizaei confirmed the ruling but added: 'His case against the Metropolitan Police Service and his conviction is not over.'
The sacking was a formality after his career was effectively ended by his conviction for misconduct and perverting the course of justice at a retrial in February.
He received a three-year prison sentence - reduced by the time he already spent behind bars after guilty verdicts in 2010 were quashed a year later by the Court of Appeal.
Dizaei won his job back with the Metropolitan Police before the retrial, but had been suspended on full salary, pending the disciplinary process.
 There appears to have been an almost concerted attempt by the powers that be to try and keep Dizaei in his post despite the mounting evidence that he was slightly more dodgy than a £9 note. Yes I know procedures have to be followed, but does anyone doubt here that if Dizaei had been a white middle class Christian that he'd manage to get reinstated, assuming his feet touched the ground as he flew through the exit?
Dizaei is a classic case of the two tier system instituted by the powers that be throughout the UK, where there is one set of rules for the English and a second set for anyone not English, though in certain instances it also stretches to white and non white, Christian and non Christian. Examples of this bias and occasional persecution can be found by comparing court cases of similar type along with the reluctance of the powers that be to label any crime on a white by another group to be labelled racist, even to the denial from some minorities that it's impossible for them to be racist.
Justice is supposed to be blind, unbiased and equal, but as George Orwell pointed out, 'some animals are more equal than others.'
So it goes in the land of England today.

I'd be quite happy for this man to continue to use due process to add to his own humiliation over the years to come, provided that he does not further benefit from the taxpayer while doing so.

Operation HELIOS
From 2000, Dizaei was investigated by the force after allegations of taking bribes, using drugs and prostitutes, and spying for Iran. There were counter-allegations by his supporters that the investigation was prompted by the belief of some senior officers that he was too ambitious, too critical of the police (particularly relating to racism), too close to the Iranian community, too flamboyant, visited expensive nightclubs and had an open marriage, none of which endeared him to other officers.The investigations, codenamed Operation Helios, cost £7 million and involved over 50 officers. It was the most expensive operation against a single officer in the history of Scotland Yard.

Dizaei was suspended on 18 January 2001. He was charged with perverting the course of justice, misconduct in public office, and submitting false mileage expense claims.

Dizaei was tried before the Recorder of London for misconduct in public office and perverting the course of justice. This arose out of an incident which occurred on 6 September 2000. The JURY cleared Dizaei of the charges on 15 September 2003.

From what I hear from my contacts in the Met, the rank and file of all races will be glad to see the back of him. The whites see his treatment as a form of inverted racism, whilst the ethnic minorities are afraid that they will be "tarred with the same brush" (if that isn't a racist phrase) by the general public.
