It isn't often the Gurn goes off-topic and directly comments on mainstream London politics but the arrest of Damian Green MP is very worrying indeed. Maybe you don't normally give a toss about politics especially anything connected with the Tories but you should pay interest this time. The Gurnmeister makes no secret of his life-long distate for the Tory party but when the cops start arresting politicians for the like of this we must all be very wary indeed.
According to Tory Blogger Iain Dale:
'His "crime" has been to reveal Home Office statistics and misconduct which they tried to cover up. If it is now a crime for a politician to do this sort of thing then just think how many other people should have been arrested - Robert Peston being a good recent example. What about government ministers who relished leaking information about the PBR?'
