Cash for Peerages, Wednesday morning update.

Well, you will already know that Lord Levy was arrested today for perverting the course of justice.

Well, according to a couple of news papers, who seem to have missed the significance, he was arrested for conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

That involves the accused and at least on other. Ruth Turner was arrested for perversion of the course of justice, so it is possible that she is the other alleged co accused.

It should of course be noted that the police having reasonable suspicion that a crime has taken place does not mean that one has, nor does the fact that they have reasonable suspicion that a particular person is guilty of a crime mean he is.

We are innocent until proven guilty, at least whilst Tony Blair has not implemented guilty until proven innocent.

However I digress.

The conspiracy thing is very interesting. We sill see how it pans out.

The daily Mail carries the most damaging information, citing John McTernan's interview as the reason for the Ruth Turner arrest and leading to today's arrest.

The Mail also seems to speculate that there is a significant email trail linking Lord Levy, Ruth Turner and Mr Powell to the enquiry. They may also mention K's and P's.

Well, mostly regurgitation, missing the conspiracy side of things but some very interesting things in the Mail (if you can get past it's lack of style)

You can read what the Times has here, the Telegraph here, the Daily Mail here, and the Guardian here.

I must admit it is quite amusing to see the news papers rehash old news, when those in the blogosphere say see this article I wrote earlier for more.
