Yates Of The Yard's Bread Buttered in Bahrain.
Time was that when the shit hit the fan and senior police officers got a bit splattered they could step into a steady little number down at Fortress Wapping. But now that the Murdoch brand has become so highly toxic Britain's top cops are having to look around for other profitable bolt holes. Former Assistant Commissioner John "Dodgy" Yates is not one to miss a trick and when things went tits up with the Met he promptly found a nice little earner in Bahrain. Ostensibly Yates Of The Yard is teaching Bahrain's finest the noble art of kettling but he has also been on hand to allay security concerns about next week's Grand Prix. "I feel safer in Bahrain than I do in London" claims Yates. Given the level of violence that the Gulf State has seen this comment says something about how popular "Champagne Charlie" feels in his own manor.
