This story has hardly been reported in the press, and I really am at a loss as to why.
One in three of the 3,533 officers who were issued with the corporate credit cards misued them and at one point £3.7million of public money was missing.
One in three! That's pretty impressive! But to be fair to the Met, they have taken action; 3 out of the 1177 officers whom committed credit card fraud have been prosecuted. Three.
That's quite some clear-up rate.
Maybe it goes some way to explaining why the met did absolutely nothing about the fraud committed by their buddies in parliament.
