The First link is a Labour Uncut article on Bratton's own company being embroiled in its own phone hacking and bugging court case.
The second link is an article on Bratton's 'jump before pushed' resignation as NYPD Commissioner over allegations of taking high value gifts from various powerful individuals in New York. Despite this, he went on to be the Chief of Police in LA, and cut crime there as well.
So we have questions over his integrity, something that the Met is already drowning in. Resignations of senior officers, thorough internal investigations, and arrest of officers has gone some way to set the Met on course for a repaired reputation. Bratton is not a healthy influence, and he must not come anywhere government or the Met.
Our senior officers are the best in the world, we do not need to be dragged down by a corrupt officer from across the pond.
