    Smile the Met =the Metropolis?=London?

    The London Mayor succeeded in forcing Sir Ian to resign despite having no formal powers to do so and against the express wishes of Gordon Brown himself.

    The Prime Minister phoned the Met Chief yesterday lunchtime to ask him not to step down but by then his mind was made up, the Mail has learned.

    Not probably - exactly that. The Metropolitan Police Force, based in New Scotland Yard, providing the policing of metropolitan London and resources in specialist fields for other police forces in Britain.

    Of course, 'the Met' has different meanings in different places. In New York, it's an opera house: Great selections and prices on tickets
