Quick by name...

So let's get this straight, Bob Quick, the senior anti-terrorist police officer in Britain gets out of a car in front of 10 Downing Street and in front of a bank of cameras with secret documents loose in his hand. They are photographed and a police operation against suspected terrorists has to be moved up because details are now in the public domain. You could not make it up. It doesn't take a great brain to to know to keep confidential documents under cover, but Quick managed to fail at basic security and in so doing has damaged the country's counter-terrorism effort. In case anyone has forgotten this is the same policeman who raided parliament without a warrant and arrested a Conservative frontbencher before whining that the Tories were out to get him. Accident-prone is probably the most charitable thing that you can say about him as he makes his second very public apology for a personal misjudgement. Can the country risk a third?
