We haven’t got the details yet from the Sunday Times main lead but it appears to be linked to the story that’s been running all week over driving licence penalty points. The Mail on Sunday reports what it’s been doing:-
“When The Mail on Sunday tried to reach the Energy Secretary last weekend, seeking a response to damaging allegations that he had pressurised someone to â€˜take the pointsâ€™ for a speeding offence, he failed to return calls until 1am on Sunday.”
The Sunday Telegraph reports that the Energy Secretary is seeking a meeting with his wife over the claim.
The allegation is a very serious one that could, if proved, have serious consequences.
Those betting that he’ll be first out of the cabinet might end up as winners.
