Police inquiries into the alleged sale of peerages are to be widened to look at other political parties, Scotland Yard has announced.
Until now the Metropolitan Police said it was only looking at complaints concerning the Labour Party.

Now Scotland Yard says it has continued to receive a number of allegations that 1925 laws banning the sale of peerages have been broken.

The force's specialist crime directorate is heading the inquiry.

The police are not saying which other parties will be targeted in their investigation.

It is understood the decision to widen the inquiry is partly, but not entirely, the result of new complaints.

Driver , pop smoke , jink like hell. So are the Police getting more bodies for this investigation , or are they spreading themselves a bit thinner , so taking longer and ................ zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

So has Bliar said that if he's going dahn, he's taking some of the other slags with him?

I note from other news reports that the police will also be looking at possible corruption in the awarding of government contracts to Labour donors. I wonder if this will include the MoD contract for provision of psychiatric in-patient treatment, and one involving the supply of vaccines?

It may very well be so Viro , and I am sure an inquiry will be set up , to investigate the matter with alacrity. The findings will then be reported in due course and .............. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Yes, chances are it's a smokescreen, or at least an attempt to spread the pain around. However, given that relations between No.10 and Scotland Yard have soured to the point where Blair (the other one) records his conversations, it's possible there might really be a thorough corruption inquiry with prosecutions...

Alright, so I'm probably daydreaming.

Would I be right in assuming that when the police have finished investigating the allegations they will hand their report to their boss (the Home Secretary) who will instruct the CPS as to whether any action should be taken?

Bliar wouldn't trust the CPS; they're so inefficient they may actually cock it up and do the right thing.

I think the usual procedure is that the Attorney General (Lord Cronysmith), will advise that a prosecution is not in the public interest, though the reasons will be kept secret. Just in case, the Lord Chancellor (Bliar's mate Lord Falconer), will have a retired judge ready to hold an inquiry which will, inevitably, reach the 'right' conclusion.
