The Government and the Police have got themselves into a complete pickle over the Damian Green arrest. The Police will now investigate the circumstances surrounding the arrest of Damian Green, as well as the ongoing investigation by the Police into that arrest – an investigation into an investigation that isn’t complete!
Government ministers meanwhile
are were planning to hold a secret meeting to discuss the Speaker’s Statement to Parliament without the Tories or Lib Dems being invited, details of which were accidentally leaked to the Tories but which was denied after its leak! And Jacqui Smith is now choosing her words very carefully and only saying that she did not know of the details of the investigation, leaving open the inference that she did know of the arrest. Sometimes it makes you wonder whether some of this lot realise why they are in Parliament and how stupid they must look to the watching and soon to be voting public.
