Cash for honours injunction

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

The Attorney General has obtained an injunction against the BBC, preventing it from broadcasting an item about the Cash for Honours inquiry. Obviously, this isn’t something I’m ‘in’ on. But with a little summation, it’s not difficult to work out what’s going on.

Iain Dale reveals this much:

So this now leads the BBC Ten O’Clock News but Nick Robinson can’t say what the injunction is all about. Let me help. I understand it is to do with an email that incriminates someone in a fairly drastic way. I do not know what the terms of the injunction are, but isn’t this an injunction which the Labour Party should have asked for rather than Her Majesty’s Government?

I am aware of the identity of the individual who is the subject of the email, but I think if I name them I’ll probably be banged up at Heathrow on my return! And, dear reader, you wouldn’t want that, would you?!

A quick look at Guido’s labelling, and the picture the BBC originally put up with it’s report, and I’d imagine we know fairly well where we are.

It’s starting to get exciting.
