Sid Tremley, a former head of Merseyside police, has been appointed the new head of the Metropolitan police after being interviewed by Theresa May and Boris Johnson. May revealed that she had appointed Tremley as he had provided the best answer to the question “What is your Metropolitan Police Commissioner name?”
“In order to work out your Metropolitan Police Commissioner name you need to take your favourite character from Blackadder, your favourite Australian, and your favourite Chancellor of the Exchequer,” she said. “While Hugh Orde suggested Queenie Goolagong-Cripps; Stephen House chose Darling Ponting-Healey; and Tim Godwin pondered for a long time before explaining that he’d never seen Blackadder, Tremley immediately said Bernard Hogan-Howe. I am a huge fan of Crocodile Dundee, and Nursie, and when Boris and I realised that he was the only one to pick a Conservative chancellor of the exchequer he seemed the obvious choice.”
Tremley assumed office last night under his Metropolitan Police Commissioner name, and is expected to resign within the next three years due to political pressure.
