No plans to abolish The SFO

According to this rather scurrilous article in the Guardian last Friday, Lord Goldsmith, the Attorney general was planning to abolish and or merge the Serious Fraud office. Some may think that is a fit of pique after the row over the BAE corruption investigation row.

Well, he has kindly written to the Guardian to say he has no plans to do so, and it is not like he would change his mind on a whim, by for example saying one week that an invasion of Iraq would be illegal only to say it would be perfectly legal next week. Oh no, our Lord Goldsmith is made of much sterner stuff than that! Isn't he?
