CH. CONS. HAROLD HOLLAND - CHARACTERS
His mother, Marion, teases her son about his dreams to build a large robot ant with a
drawing of her son riding on the ant's back. Then it comes true.
CHIEF CONSTABLE, METROPOLITAN POLICE, LONDON, SCOTLAND YARD
Harold Tom Holland, is known as 'Dirty Harry', after the Clint Eastwood movies. He is also nicknamed 'Dutch' because of his surname. He is the ultimate corrupt Chief Constable of Britain's Metropolitan police, based at Scotland Yard. With connections to serious organized crime bosses. Making him all but untouchable.
He is always on the lookout for fresh back-handers, cash earners, and fat brown envelopes that includes selling secrets to corrupt counterparts in the CIA. Using his Interpol connections to identify opportunities.
Harold Holland is contacted by Jack Mason, for any dirt on Jimmy Watson, or his father Tim, that DARPA might be able to use to bribe the General, or even, Field Marshall Sir Rodney Dunbar. Who has on occasion been useful to some degree.
Some of his secondary income comes from turning a blind eye to drug money, and other immoral earnings, as part of a justice culture, where judges may be bought, and need to tow the line, or not be selected, by an equally suspect Ministry of Justice, the Crown Prosecution Service also being liberally riddled with soured Masons in need of a second income. And that is all the insurance he needs.
There are though, many honest officers in the ranks, and independent Judges. And this is where corrupted law officials need to be particularly adept at dodging honest bullets. Recognising those recruits enthusiastic about creating a transparent society, based on fairness and decency - and demoting them, or otherwise obstructing their progress, or even constructively dismissing them, if they question the institutionalised discrimination, and culture of doing favours - such as simply not investigating crimes committed by those in the fold.
He sometimes wishes that he'd chosen the righteous path, fancying himself as one of the Knights Templar, in another life. Where deep down the level of organised crime in the UK is causing serious National Debt, from money laundering activities, that should either be prevented, or taxed. This worries him. And gives reason to 'Dirty Harry,' occasionally feeding criminals back into the Justice System to be imprisoned. Pangs of conscience, if you will. Even though this might be dangerous to his health.

are fool enough to be seduced, as part of a career move. His roving eye is

He drives a cherished
E-Type, often too fast for built up London, even
when sounding his siren. He has spent years and buckets of his slush money on restoring
this vehicle. And does not care one jot about the cost. Because to him, the
vehicle is so beautiful. Harry is fond of James Bond movies and other spy
movies, such as Harry Palmer, in the Ipcress File. And crime movies, such
as the Italian Job, again with Michael Caine as the star.
