Cash for Peerages, yet another gagging order!

ITN reports that the Attorney General has sought, and presumably obtained a gagging order against the Sun, preventing it publishing details of an email between senior aides at Number 10, possibly the same email that the BBC had, possibly a different one. Who knows!

The Times also carries a similar story here.

It seems gagging writs will be flying about like confetti. Combine that with speculation that Downing Street is leaking to spoil the inquiry and things are looking serious indeed.

I expect more arrests this week. I also expect charges this week as well! If they charge the right people, then they will get them to sing.

Hat tips to Songthrush and Yokel on for the links.

Looks like the Guardian called their bluff.
