A Familiar Pattern…

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Maxine de Brunner rose to the very top of the Met…

A woman? Why, of course she did!

…but retired suddenly after a career touched by a string of scandals.

A diversity project? Why, of course she did!

The officer, who worked for the Met for three decades, first came to prominence as she led the investigation that saw Paul Burrell put on trial over allegations he stole 310 items belonging to Princess Diana, Prince Charles and Prince William.

The 2003 trial collapsed in embarrassing circumstances and she was accused of being among the officers who ‘grossly misled’ Charles and William about the royal butler’s chances of prosecution.

An ‘independent’ inquiry effectively exonerated then DCI de Brunner who would continue to rise up the ranks at the Met to the high post of Deputy Assistant Commissioner and reports at the time suggested she felt she was scapegoated over Burrell’s bungled court case.

They always do, don’t they? Nothing is ever their fault. It’s always prejudice or racism or misogyny.

But in 2013 she was in the news again, this time after the Met spent £660 on a ceremonial head-dress for her while having to make £500 million of cuts.


Then in July 2016, as Adrian Denby’s discrimination case raged, it was revealed she was facing disciplinary action after allegedly arranging for dozens of police officers, along with dogs, horses and cars, to entertain pupils at her son’s private school.

A typical pattern, brush off criticism, whine about being a victim, then go right on back to playing the system for your own benefit like some corrupt Nigerian tribal elder…

Chiefs then asked Hertfordshire Constabulary to investigate the then 50-year-old for misconduct over her plan.

But in August 2016 it emerged that the top cop would be allowed to retire while still the subject of the misconduct probe and hoped to cash in on her expertise by becoming a leadership consultant.

Who would employ someone like this? Only a business that wanted to be held in the same contempt as the modern police farce, surely?

Her updated profile on social network LinkedIn said she will be ‘augmenting my service to the promotion of exceptional leadership‘.

Can she be done under false advertising laws?

    Police officers, of whatever gender is currently state approved, who are ‘under investigation’ are often ‘retired’ out of the constabulary to get the state ‘out of gaol’ so too speak.
    Just as ‘out of court’ settlements given to wronged individuals keep the wrongdoer ‘out of gaol’.

    “the promotion of exceptional leadership”

    Isn’t that CP code ?

      You’re thinking of ‘leading beyond authority’ – or, infiltrating the state to a position of power and ignoring due process, law, legality and justice to get what you want.

        Either or, the Fabian solution and counter to the ‘Masons’ has the whole of the public sector stitched-up and in its pocket.

        Whatever initiation ceremonies they indulge in (dancing naked round a fire?), lying prostrate before and obeying all the Marxist permeated secret squirrel rools means that arses are covered. Therefore, no matter how many fuck ups you make, nigh on you are bullet proof and nearly unsackable. Lastly, if you do have to leave under a cloud (not sacked just resigned), there’s always the third sector to augment the pension and carry on peculating/robbing the taxpayers.

        In the federal superstate all is guaranteed, all bets are off if we somehow managed to ditch the EU and therein the ECJ because then, they’d all be exposed, small wonder it is then that, CP they all are fundamentalist remoaniacs.

    Thus, all public sector & NGOs will be forming a disorderly queue to pay her to lead “diversity/race/left/pc” courses all their employees must attend.

    More taxpayers money wasted.
