I like Bob and have always felt that he was an effective police officer. But allowing a secret document to be photoed and nearly compromising an investigation was deeply embarrassing and I can completely understand why Bob felt that he had to stand down.
Bob made a serious mistake and took responsibility for his actions. You don't see that very often these days, do you?
I'm sorry to see Bob go but I am comforted greatly by John Yates being appointed as the head of Counter Terrorism Command. I might organise a whip-round for him and buy a briefcase for him as a congratulations present.
