Cash For Peerages, More inquiries requested by CPS

Apparently the CPS have asked Inspector Yates of the Yard to carry out further inquiries.

From that we can deduce that there is not enough to charge people, or can we?

It seems to me that they could need more evidence to charge some of the people involved but have enough on others. It could be stalling for time. It could also be that the evidence shows some inconsistencies which need ironing out.

There is of course one other possibility. That the CPS want Tony Blair questioned under caution, and are waiting until he is out of office to do so.

Of course all the Labour bloggers will be wittering on about how long this is all taking how much information is being leaked and how it is all politically motivated, but they would say that wouldn't they?

The BBC has this.

Perhaps they are STILL waiting for Blair's signed witness statements.

I do hope that Day One of the rest of his life after he leaves Downing Street is spent answering some very, very tough questions...

Political blogging is pretty pointless when people resort to this kind of tedious stereotype. I'd rather they were keen to learn rather than score points.

CityUnslicker, Yes quite!

Marquee Mark, You do have to wonder about those don't you? Mind you they did not ask for a witness statement they asked for an acceptance of the transcript.

Bloggers4Labour, Perhaps I should have said the labour people involved in blogging I know. The point still stands though, unless there is an article or three you would like to draw my attention too.
