Is the investigation getting near to closure ?
The big political news overnight has been the gagging order that the High Court granted last night to the Attorney General to stop BBC News broadcasting an item in its 10pm bulletin on the cash for honours investigation.
Clearly what I can write on a blog like this is very limited. You can only conclude that the story was of such a magnitude that the authorities, at the request it appears of the police, felt compelled to act.
The big fear in all highly publicised cases like this is that what is reported might prejudice any trial which is why they felt it necessary to seek an injunction.
We appear to be getting close to the end-game. The “Blair leaving date” betting market now makes Q3 the odds-on favourite.
