I was actually admonished by one of the thought police moderators for referring to our intrepid Inspector as Deadwood, which I considered far more appropriate when first assigning my literature to this splendid site. big grin

I hope it wasn't me... I did make a remark about not being too hasty to judge Andy, because imo he is deadpan and inscrutable, not necessarily dead wood though imo  !

 I am outspoken and said so...maybe it was me but I am not in the thought police, just gave a contrary opinion....which is what makes this forum splendid, as you say !

Thank you for clarifying this Tony.

For example, the Metropolitan Police currently has an anti-knife crime initiative called Operation Blunt and it also has Operation Payback, which involves seizing the assets of organised criminals.

I am not quite sure if the SY Operation would be considered being launched to a specific crime or not?

Yes - the specific crime of being responsible for Madeleine's disappearance is Operation Grange's remit. Or to put it the way Scotland Yard would have it: "To investigate the abduction as if it had happened in the UK", or as David Cameron's spokesman put it: "To help the family".

Non-specific anti-crime initiatives are given appropriately-selected names, like the two you've quoted above

The irony  : announcement of the main stories at 8 a.m.

 headline and outside broadcast on Sky re the missing 3 year old  : no change, sadly. It is cold and raining, does not look good.

  then the man who did yesterday's breaking news re this little boy from Sky studio, now in Leicester doing the intro for his report later on in this 8 a.m. programme.......HELLO FROM LEICESTER  FROM WHERE WE CONTINUE OUR REPORT INTO PEOPLE BELIEVING THAT THERE ARE MAJOR COVER UPS BY THE POLICE

 [ or words to that effect]

 I think the Mcs are not going to be asking their spokesman to be giving any statements of sympathy to the media.

 What will Clarrie say, if they seek him out and ask  ?
