This week promises to be very interesting. I suspect a well-timed leak designed to cause maximum damage. The Conservatives and Liberal Democrats are also planning to launch a full-scale on Bliar's trust. This may be worth 2 or 3 percentage points in the polls, making the fight all the more interesting. Bliar has two unpalatable choices - try and hide or stand and fight, and both will succeed in turning up the heat! From the Mail on Sunday, abridged slightly: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=346070&in_page_id=1770&in_a_source=&ct=5 What interests me is the "lawyer-client privilege" nonsense. The Attorney General is the senior law officer in the government. The government is appointed by the Queen and composed mostly of the MPs elected by UK voters. Therefore, the Attorney General has the UK electorate as a client as well as the government. It speaks volumes that this government sees the electorate in terms of a contesting party in an adverserial courtroom rather than as the people served by the government.
