Tony Blair has been interviewed for a second time by police investigating cash-for-honours allegations.
Downing Street disclosed that the 45 minute questioning took place in Number 10 last Friday, but was kept secret at the request of the Metropolitan Police.

The prime minister was first questioned as a witness in December.

Police are investigating whether money was donated to political parties in exchange for honours. All involved in the claims have denied any wrongdoing.

So he's been questionned as a witness again, not under caution. But, do you really think that telling him that he doesn't have to say anything unless he wishes to do so (even though it might harm his defence if he fails to mention when asked, something which he relies on in court) is going to do anything other than divert public funds into his wife's bank account, and sod all else?

What are the bets that Bliar will act as a witness in convicting Levy?

That'll be about right, stitch your mate up so you can stay clean. Cunt!

Tony Blair has been questioned for a second time by police investigating cash-for-honours allegations.
Downing Street disclosed the interview, which lasted 45 minutes, took place in No 10 last Friday and was kept secret at the request of the Met Police.

The prime minister was first questioned as a witness in December.

Police are investigating whether money was donated to political parties in exchange for honours. All involved in the claims have denied any wrongdoing.

Mr Blair's official spokesman said Mr Blair questioned as a possible witness, as he had been in December, but would not discuss the contents of the conversation.

He said he did not know whether Mr Blair would face further questions, saying that was a matter entirely for the police.

Question time

On Tuesday Labour's chief fundraiser Lord Levy, who is also Mr Blair's Middle East envoy, was arrested for a second time by police investigating the claims.

This time he was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

It followed the arrest just over a week earlier of Downing Street aide Ruth Turner on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

Neither were charged but it has sparked speculation that the police had not been given all the information they needed.

At prime minister's questions on Wednesday, SNP leader Alex Salmond asked Mr Blair: "Is there a cover-up in Downing Street?"

Mr Blair told MPs that for "obvious reasons" he could not make any comment about the police inquiry.

Heh you do you mind - cool it with the 45 minutes.
I don't want to be breaking out in cold sweats again like I did a few years ago alright?

“Entirely a matter for the police? Skuse me, but does this excuse of a human not work for the UK populace? Is this populace not entitled to know what its representatives are doing in its name?

"Nothing has changed." That's what journalists have been told each and every day when we have asked whether the prime minister has been interviewed by the police.

At this morning's Lobby briefing, a grim-faced Tom Kelly - the prime minister's official spokesman - revealed that, in fact, Tony Blair was questioned as a witness by police for the second time last Friday morning.
Had Kelly misled us? He insisted that he and the entire Number Ten media team were themselves unaware of this news until late yesterday, and therefore he had never knowingly misled journalists. The interview had been kept secret, he said, at the specific request of the Metropolitan Police. We await a statement from them with interest.

Mr Blair was challenged on whether he had seen Foreign Office legal advice in a BBC interview with Jeremy Paxman on 20 April. He replied: 'No, I had the Attorney General's advice to guide me.' In fact, Mr Blair had seen the Foreign Office advice as early as 8 March 2002, in an annex to a secret Cabinet Office 'options paper'. That annex is published in The Independent on Sunday for the first time today.

Asked to account for the discrepancy, a Downing Street spokesman said:
'The Prime Minister accepts his legal advice from the Attorney General, not from individual departments. We are not going to comment on any papers prepared for specific meetings.'

Ah yes, the Attorney General that Blair appointed......

Phone call from The Whitehouse to Number 10:

"Tony, you're going down and I'm not going down with you".

"That's quite alright George, as you know, I'm a giver".

And guess who decides if charges are pressed: the Attourney General!!!!

I'm so sure there's going to be charges now! :frustrated:
And even if he's charged he'll be 'tried by a jury of his peers' - presumably the peers who bunged him the cash in the first place.

Still I'm sure that nice Lord Hutton will be available to preside and make sure everything is above board...
