Now, while there are some Tories who need to be locked up for the safety of the general public, this looks downright odd.
The BBC cites four incidents included in the investigation of a Home Office junior official.
- The November 2007 revelation that the home secretary knew the Security Industry Authority had granted licences to 5,000 illegal workers, but decided not to publicise it.
- The February 2008 news that an illegal immigrant had been employed as a cleaner in the House of Commons.
- A whips' list of potential Labour rebels in the vote on plans to increase the pre-charge terror detention limit to 42 days.
- A letter from the home secretary warning that a recession could lead to a rise in crime.
Of far more concern to me is the mole in the Treasury that seems to be leaking to Osborne's team. The Guardian ran with this speculative story, but I've been wondering for a while. The fact that the Tories seem to regularly announce policies a couple of days before Labour and I've not been convinced that this is simply down to Gordon and Alistair following the Tory agenda - it just seems too coincidental.
