I've posted before (as have many others) of my disquiet at the inadequacy of our Prime Minister and Home Secretary's response to the arrest of Damian Green. There are also serious questions about the behaviour of the Police. I was particularly disgusted by the use of the word 'grooming' during the questioning of Damian Green. This shouldn't be a party issue, and I suspect there are many Labour MPs who share the disquiet. Which is why I was pleased to read this impressive article in today's Telegraph by Labour MP, Denis MacShane.
And now we have an attempt by Labour to stitch up the response by the Speaker to the concern of MPs like Mr MacShane tomorrow. Amusingly, this has become public through a leaked email. If Labour do try any funny business to cover up, we could be in a Watergate situation. And if the Home Secretary is found not to have been entirely truthful, she's toast. This is a very big issue, and the Government knows it. This attempt to 'arrange' things without the involvement of opposition parties is a big mistake.
Tomorrow's statement by the Speaker is going to be a lot more interesting than the Queen's Speech, which is likely to be not much more than a series of transfers of power to the state.
