Tory MP arrested and Government is "unaware"!

It beggars belief that a senior Tory MP can be taken from his home by police, questioned and arrested, and that not one single government minister got an inkling of it. I simply do not believe Gordon Brown. He has cloth ears when he wants them. The Queen is still waiting for an answer to her question "Why did nobody see it coming?", referring to the credit crunch!

Brown's rather odious little bag carrier, Phil Woolas, said he was "taken aback" by the arrest. He's the immigration minister who knew that a Home Office official had been suspended from duty ten days ago over a number of leaks and the matter had been referred to police. This person was arrested but not charged. So is Woolas saying he was never told by police that they were thinking of interviewing Damian Green, the Tory immigration spokesman? Surely not?

And are we to believe that the senior police officers monitoring the case just buttoned their lips? Woolas says "As far as I am aware no ministers had any knowledge of this". I like his use of as far as, because this allows him to deny now facts he may know so at a later date he can unravel his dissembling. I do not trust the man. Neither does the whole Conservative Front Bench it seems. What on earth did the police have to ask Mr. Green for nine hours? Was he just put in a cell to make him sweat? Surely a simple set of questions would suffice?

Stalinist behaviour is how it has been described. New Labour is a troublesome outfit. All pompous pretention on matters of unimportance and severe dithering over serious things that should be done. Mandy Rice-Davies had one of the best lines in the 20th century, during the Stephen Ward trial arising from the Profumo affair. When the prosecuting counsel pointed out that Lord Astor denied an affair or having even met her, she replied, "Well, he would, wouldn't he?".

Gordon Brown denies knowing about Mr. Green's arrest and nine hours in detention. Well, he would, wouldn't he?
