I thought they leaked stuff all the time

Shadow immigration minister Damien Green was arrested today under the Official Secrets Act for allegedly leaking information to the media.

The Conservatives confirmed that Mr Green, the MP for Ashford in Kent, was held but not charged.

It is understood the arrest was in connection with alleged leaked information relating to stories in the media about immigration.

This may be a dangerous precedent. I do hope it isn't Broon's secret police at work. If it is intimidation of an MP by government then its worthy of a public enquiry.

Nothing secret about Zanu-Liarbores politicization of the police esp MetPol.

Conspiring to commit misconduct in a public office?

This has to be a wah from plod.

I would love to know where the paper trail for this 'crime' leads to and where/who it originated from.

If this is the direction ZANU OL are going then they really are playing with fire.

I'd only agree if what he leaked couldn't reasonably be concidered confidential. If not, idiots leaking what they think might be to their political advantage when they don't have the full picture should be delt with.

That's truly bizarre, esp when one considers the leaks and spin for Al Campbell et al.

The "full picture" being defined as what exactly: the latest ZANU-NL briefing from No.10, perhaps?

The full picture being anything the security services deemed so.

Makes me proud to be British, so I don't have to live in one of those third world banana republics.

Makes a big deal about "Counter-Terrorism Police" doing all the leg work. Are all coppers now referred to as Counter Terrorist?

Oh dear. Do you mean that the security services aent subject to the law of the country or they can do as they like?

Secondly I would appreciate a definition of security services and by what measures do they "deem" something to be so.

And looking at the nature of the infomation that has been 'leaked' do you seriously suggest that it was not in the public intrest to know what a complete shambles the HO is at present?

That vile home economics teacher,Jackboot Smiff,has consistantly shown herself to be not only massively out of her depth but also to harbour the same contempt for the people of this country that the rest of the present incumbents have.

As time draws on we see ZANU OL revealing thier true nature more and more.A ugly,festering and morally bankrupt collection of misfits and traitors.

The sooner these draconian thugs are ousted from power the better for everyone,political gamesmanship be damned.

No. But who would you accept a call of 'secret' from?

You are assuming the stuff he leaked was relevent to the cause of exposing idiocy?

Well, it all depends on waht it is that has been leaked by the 'Whistleblower' that 'whistled' this latest info.... But sitting Gibberingmunts have always tried to silence matters that will publicly embarrass them. No doubt the Home Secretary Missy Jacquie's department has been caught with its 'politcal knickers' around its 'poltical ankles' over immigration matters.... yet again....!!

There certainly has been a worrying trend within the Neues Lie-bore Gubbermunt ever since it got into Orrifice in 1997 under the Laffing Teflon B'Liar....

I've always though that Gollum Broone's face would look just right glowering down from massive billboards as the 'Dear Leader'. .... Gollum in my opnion is a closet 'Stalinist'..... possibly unaware of it. But he is one of these pilloc-ticians who is unable to delegate... so his fingerprints,
bootprints, chinprint et al are on most of the draconian laws that have been passed ever since 1997.

Maybe this case is a 'Politcal Crime' and the Tory MP has been arrested as warning to others to toe the Gubbermunts line.... Nobody critices Gollum or any of his Ministers....

It reminds me of the lengths that Maggie 'T' went to to silence any publications of that book 'spycatcher' by Peter Wright a retired MI5 Officer...

In a rebuff to the Thatcher Government, a British judge ruled today that the duty of the press to inform the public had ''overwhelming weight'' against potential Government embarrassment from scandal.

Mrs T tried o get the publication fo the book banned in various countreis including Australia, America, Canada etc....

Sounds more like Liebore have enough embarrassing matters still queing up to tumble out of the closet....

Hooray................... :) :D

They showed that ministers had known for four months that thousands of illegal immigrants had been cleared to work as security guards but had not told Parliament.
Other documents included information about an illegal immigrant working at House of Commons
The above have public interest written all over them

and a list of Labour MPs preparing to vote against the Government's anti-terrorism measures.
Not too sure about he last one though.
