Is A Blair 'Watergate' Wending It's Way Toward Downing Street?
We ain't saying nothing till we've seen our mouthpiece.
Know what we mean?
Nudge, nudge -- wink, wink -- say no more.
Incidentally, they're the words of we old pair, not of Great Leader Blair nor of Lord Levy.
It seems they would sooner stay schtum.
But the BBC's Nick Assinder isn't.
Seen what he's saying?
It is extraordinary enough that the prime minister has been interviewed for a second time by police in the cash-for-honours investigation.And, Assinder asks:
It is just as extraordinary that the 45-minute conversation was kept secret for the best part of a week - particularly as there have been persistent claims that someone is leaking details of this probe.
Another Nick we know - BBC Political Editor Nick Robinson - has also been keeping a close eye on things -- and he's been blogging about them too.
Have the police now moved onto what is, in effect, a separate inquiry into a Watergate-style cover-up, as some are now claiming?
Does it all mean the inquiries, once believed to have been near completion, are now weeks away from a conclusion?
And has it increased or diminished the likelihood that charges will eventually be laid against individuals and, if so, at what level in the Labour Party or even the government?
Here's a quick clip & paste.
Lord Levy's refused to comment after his arrest on Tuesday but, he's always protested his innocence telling friends that "only one person can nominate people for honours and it isn't me".Hmm.
I think we know what - and who - he's referring to.
Perhaps the plot thickens.
