Downing Street -v- Scotland Yard:The Cash For Honours 'Battle Of The Blairs'
In the aftermath of the London tube terrible terrorist attack of 7/7 and the subsequent 'summary execution' of an irrefutably innocent Brazilian boy - London's Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Ian Blair was thought by many to have been badly let down by his ultimate boss, PM Tony Blair.
However true any currently circulating claims may actually turn out to be, there's something already certain. Sir Ian Blair's best-of-British bobbies continue to busily beaver away on the, so called, New Labour 'Cash for Honours' case.
And apparently they don't give a flying squad - nor a flying anything else - about who they upset. Nor how, nor when.
Since it also appears that no toes at all are thought to be too high & mighty to be trodden on -- including some well pedicured ones strutting their stuff in Downing Street.

Then there's this background/timeline page (full of further links), at the BBC site.
As to anything eventually being brought to light and anyone eventually being brought to book, that still remains to be seen.
But it's damned difficult to believe that so much time, effort and expense would be literally 'lavished' like it is -- unless those controlling investigations felt fairly sure of securing some spectacular conviction(s).
Which would/should lead one to wonder -- why one or another of the Blairs involved hasn't yet halted it all.
If anyone asked us, though we freely admit that no one has so far, we'd say we're already completely convinced of at least four things.
(1) This is super-serious.
(2) This is some sort of set-up
(3) This is patently personal.
(4) This is a 'Battle of the Blairs'.
And we two know who we want to win.
