Labour is now starting to sweat over the "cash for peerages" scandal. To appoint Lord Goldsmith as the key person to decide on prosecution is unethical at the very least, and is likely to embroil Labour in further corruption allegations. This is a gentleman who rose from political obscurity in 1999 to become a peer of the realm (Courtesy of our Dear Leader), and was promoted to Attorney General in 2001. He is a close friend and ally of our benevolent leader, T Bliar. Goldsmith, corruption from the Torygraph The Attorney General, assisted by the Solicitor General, is the chief legal adviser to the Government. The Attorney General has overall responsibility for the Treasury Solicitorsâ Department, superintends the Director of Public Prosecution as head of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), the Director of the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and the Director of Public Prosecutions in Northern Ireland. The Law Officers answer for these Departments in Parliament. The Attorney General has public interest functions in which his responsibility is as guardian of the public interest. Is not the inclusion of Goldsmith into this affair a serious breech of ethics as he has a vested interest. Would he bite the hand that feeds him and hold Labour to account? Judging by his U turn on the legality of the Iraq War he is susceptible to being leant on by Labour political heavyweights. Was Goldsmith placed in this position as an insurance policy to give Bliar a "Get out of Jail" card? I shall be writing to my MP to state my objections to this apparent whitewash. Anyone with any POV, or am I being oversensitive and a conspiracy theorist??? Edited for shoit spellig.
