Cash for Honours – will CPS do anything?

It is suggested
that now Assistant Commissioner John Yates, the Met officer who is
investigating “cash for honours”, has passed his findings on to the
CPS, that the whispering campaign designed to
discredit him is getting louder, as is the political pressure for the
CPS to bury it.

Behind the
scenes, as reported by Guido,
Yates is looking to protect himself and even suggested that he may publish and
place in the public domain his findings.

Much of the
debate has been around whether this would prejudice a
CPS case, or whether the CPS have the guts to use it and prosecute. 

If we were to go
back to pre 9/11
Britain, then I would suggest that it would be
prejudicial , but the plethora of new draconian laws which have been passed
since that time changes that considerably.

Most of the laws
which Blair’s own government have put in place no longer require the
authorities to prove guilt, they only need to suggest the guilt and the burden
would fall upon the accused to prove their innocence, against a backdrop of the
accuser being able to introduce hearsay evidence and probable reasonableness. 

Mr Yates, if you
honestly feel that in your professional opinion there is a case to be answered,
and that case is being sidelined, politically abused or blocked, then surely as
an honest policeman it is your duty to accuse, publish and be damned.

We, the public
need this too, to know who is being accused, because the last thing that we
want to see is that the
CPS do ‘a deal’, and only move on a scapegoat rather
than the real protagonists. 

We also say that
if  Sir Ian Blair is ever to be seen as a
policeman again, rather than a power hungry politician, then we would expect to
see full and unrestrained support for his Assistant Commissioner.

To quote Adolf
Hitler: 'The grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it
has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars.'. 

We hope now that
once one lie is uncovered, and dealt with, the rest of the pack will unfold.
Sir Ian, you have been given unprecedented powers by this government, so
restore some public confidence in the Police, and lets see you use them.
