Boris knifes Blair

"Without the Mayor's backing I cannot see how I can continue in the job. I am resigning in the best interests of the people of London and the Metropolitan Police Service", said Sir Ian Blair (video), leaving little doubt that London Mayor Boris Johnson forced his resignation.

I don't know how much Ken Livingstone, David Blunkett and Jacqui Smith agree on - but they have all warned that the move could bring party politics into policing.

For me, the best in-depth coverage of London politics can often be found on Dave Hill's blog, now being hosted by The Guardian having begun as an independent effort which was indispensable during this year's Mayoral elections.
