Nothing stays secret for long when the Met are involved. I didn't know who was the new Commissioner until I saw it on Sky News, but having seen the news I now know it is Sir Paul Stephenson.
Sir Hugh Orde is an excellent police officer and I'm sure would have made a very good Commissioner but having worked with Sir Paul over the last 9 months I am pleased that he has been confirmed in the role.
I look forward to working with him in the forthcoming years.
