  2. Often worry if His Justice is in danger of DVT, sitting there day after day.
     
  3. I didn't know there even was a parliamentary watch dog to police QPM. Every government has run the Nixon defence in the past - "this is a document of the executive, it is not open to the legislature or judiciary to enforce it".

    Maybe I am wrong.

    Well, we all live and learn. From the article:

    "...Sir Alex Allan, the prime minister's independent adviser on the ministerial code. Sir Alex, who is paid £30,000 a year, has so far been excluded from the process on Cameron's instructions. His office was also bypassed by the prime minister over the conduct of Liam Fox, the former defence secretary."
     
  5. Exactly - an adviser.

    So it's up to the PM whether to enforce it.
