I don't mind admitting that I am rather shocked at the resignation of Asst Commissioner Andy Hayman today. When the Sunday Times printed allegations of false expenses claims it seemed to me like a put up job. It still does to be honest, but I guess we will never know the real truth.
So Mr Hayman leaves with an annual pension of £100,000 a year at the age of 48. And also the prospect of a life away from Sir Ian Blair. I suspect the latter is more important than the former for Andy Hayman.
