Blair, No10, Cash for Honours, the CPS and Goldsmith

The unconfirmed
but undenied rumour is that Tony Blair will announce his resignation on 9th
May, which means that we will have a new Prime Minister sometime in June.

Reading the blog
of Benedict Brogan one could be forgiven for comparing the last weeks inside
No.10 to that of the last days of the Fuehrer Bunker. Chaos and disarray, an air
of impending doom rather than triumphant departure.

To add to the
pressure, the Metropolitan Police have handed in the 12th and final
offering of evidence in the Cash for Honours Inquiry led by AC Yates to the
CPS, a 216 page report, a massive 6,300
documents along with a recommendation for charges and arrests. 

The CPS confirmed that it had received the file,
adding: “It will now be reviewed in accordance with the code for crown
prosecutors to determine whether any individuals should be charged with any

The Attorney
General, Lord Goldsmith, has so far resisted calls for him to stand aside from
the decision on whether to have any prosecution because he is a close ally of
Mr Blair. He says his “constitutional responsibilities” do not allow
him to do so, but has said he will make sure there are procedures in place to
give confidence that the decision is taken impartially and objectively.  

As Iain
has said: It is appalling that the final decision may be taken by the
Attorney General, Lord Goldsmith. Not many people know that Goldsmith was a donor
to New Labour before he was granted his peerage by…. you guessed it, Tony
Blair, the man on whom he will now sit in judgement. He should stand aside and
allow the decision to be made by the
CPS without any reference to him at all. If he makes a
decision that pursuing this case is not conducive to the public interest I very
much hope that the Great British Public won't stand for it.

We say: Goldsmith
must be censured by his peers, advised by MP’s, warned by the media and
pressurised daily by the blogging community to force him to stand aside from
any decisions that the
CPS make, to allow Carmen Dowd, the head of the CPS special crime division to conclude this
sad and sorry case in a dignified and eloquent manner, untarnished by NuLab corruption
and spin. 

Perhaps Lord
Goldsmith needs to be relieved of those “constitutional
responsibilities” if we are to see justice done. Expediency and
transparency are essential, as is the need to ensure that this affair cannot be
used for political propaganda in the lead up to the elections.


NuLab –
from the inside out.
