    The crisis at Scotland Yard will worsen tomorrow as black officers begin a boycott of their own force.

    The Guardian understands the open rebellion could see black officers placing newspaper adverts urging ethnic minority people not to apply to join the Metropolitan police.

    Britain's biggest force is still reeling after its commissioner Sir Ian Blair was ousted from office by London Mayor Boris Johnson following a series of controversies.

    Old Britian used to be very sooty, too be sure.

    But once they stopped burning all that coal in jolly old London their air cleaned up somewhat.

    Britain has always been racist and it continues to be so. They have suppressed it but it's true, it is a racist society. They deny it but it is a racist society.

    Now - Americans......do you have a stone you'd like to throw?

    Not a stone, exactly, but I can't help but note that the apple doesn't roll very far from the tree.
