Bloggers on the trail of the terror leaker!

Bloggers are on the trail of the man who leaked details of the terror raid in Birmingham, (See here and here) in the Home Office. I suspect it won't be long before it is all over the press.

Iain Dale has this article with correspondence between Shadow Attorney General Dominic Grieve and John Reid of the Home Office in which after quite some delay John Reid denies that any of his staff leaked. Iain then goes on to say that many in Westminster and the press know exactly who he is.

Guido on the other hand has noticed a missing special adviser, Steve Bates. Surely a coincidence?

I suspect that DAC Clarke will also be very interested to find out who in the met leaked to the tabloids as well.

I never cease to be amazed that leakers are so willing to prioritize their personal agenda for that of a nation.

Wasn't Lord Haw Haw executed?

The Real Sporer, I see your point, alas New Labour have been in power for 10 years so it now no longer amazes me!

"Wasn't Lord Haw Haw executed?"

Yes he was. Now there's a thought!
