THE Conservative Party reacted with anger today after its immigration spokesman was arrested for allegedly leaking Home Office documents.
I have just witness one of the most pathetic government defences of what I perceive an illegal act, the arrest and detention of an MP doing his duty.
Having endured an MP whose only real concern has been homosexual rights, the full scope of responsibility is alien to him, although he is now responsible for Veteran Matters (I nearly said affairs but the double take on that expression is not funny).
Since 1979 we have witnessed an appalling death of democracy; regulations and laws have been passed with Labour denying the most basic and sensible scrutiny of the passage of some heinous legislation, and we rely - thankfully- to the fuddy duddies in the Lords and thanks to Dog we have such a worthy second chamber.
So Secretary Spliff, if you do not know what is going on under your scrutiny, resign. Do not tell us that it is a wholly Police matter because the invasion of Parliament by YOUR police is an act of aggression against the Nation.
