If articles in the today's Guardian and elsewhere are any indication then senior management at the Metropolitan Police are close to meltdown over the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes. It does not help the chain of command when it is constantly undermined by leaks. Just how bad that has got is evidenced here:

The mood among senior officers at Scotland Yard has been poisonous at times in recent months. Last week Sir Ian Blair sent an internal message to staff condemning negative leaks about the force. It has been leaked to the Guardian.

This is becoming a story about the cover-up rather than the killing itself. I hope that we do not forget in all of this fuss that there has to be some closure for the de Menezes family as well.
