“Pin your ears back you lot; the Gene Genie speaks”

Just had to repost this to my blog from Inspectorgadget. Sounds just like Superintendent Uckfield only he doesn't smoke, well only cigars.  And if you haven't noticed that yet in any of the Inspector Horton novels then maybe it's yet to come.

Uckfield is his usual coarse self in the new DI Horton crime novel, Blood on the Sand, due out in the UK in February and in the US in April.

“Pin your ears back you lot; the Gene Genie speaks”: "

Gene Hunt: I think you’ve forgotten who you’re talking to.

Sam Tyler: An overweight, over-the-hill, nicotine-stained, borderline-alcoholic homophobe with a superiority complex and an unhealthy obsession with male bonding?

Gene Hunt: You make that sound like a bad thing.

Let’s leave the last word to DCI Gene Hunt aka Philip Glenister, who, lets face it, meets a lot of serving police officers both during his support for the police bravery awards and on the street.

“I think police today are facing an increasingly difficult job, with the emphasis on paperwork. They need to be allowed to get on with getting the scumbags off the streets. Political correctness has gone too far.”

DI Andy Horton is getting the scumbags off the streets of Portsmouth  in Dead Man's Wharf  in paperback in February 2010.
