JOHN Reid was confirmed as brainless last night after a string of devastating blunders. In one, a paedophile was freed due to the Home Secretary’s failure to build extra jail places — as it emerged a prison ship IS available. Next, rising crime figures showed the highest recorded number of armed robberies in people’s homes.
Elsewhere an aide of Mr Reid was held up at gunpoint after sharing a curry with the Home Secretary to discuss the jails crisis.
As the hunt continued for Mr Reid’s brain — reported missing by The Sun yesterday — a North Wales judge told paedophile Derek Williams he had no option but to free him. He cited Mr Reid’s orders to ease pressure on jails.
The shock armed robberies rise sparked accusations that Mr Reid was losing his grip on gun crime — and cast doubt on his future.
