Police Inquiry

Put by ITN’s Political Editor that last week they had reported that the police investigation for the honours inquiry had discovered in their investigation that there was a second computer system used by senior Downing Street officials, and we had issued a statement saying the story was untrue, but it now seemed clear that some senior Labour Party officials in No10 did use a separate system, and did we now want to amend our statement, and were we aware of that some people in No10 used that second system when we made our earlier statement, the PMOS asked the journalist what evidence did he have that some officials did use a second system. The journalist replied that he did not have evidence, but that it "seemed clear" that some people did. The PMOS said that it was wrong. The PMOS said that people had to start questioning who had supplied the information, and why, as it was wrong.

Asked again by ITN if any Downing Street official had ever used anything other than the official Government system, the PMOS said that those people on the party side had made clear the answer to that. There was only one system in Downing Street. The police had had complete access to all such transactions.

Asked why were people being fed the wrong information, the PMOS replied that it was not for him to speculate on.

Put that it sounded as if we were suggesting some kind of "dirty tricks smear", the PMOS said that he was not suggesting anything. Rather, he was simply pointing out that the information last week was wrong. It was wrong in the ITN report, it was wrong in the suggestions that The Sunday Telegraph had been put to us, and this was wrong again.

  1. Humbug !!!

    . . .And when exactly will the Metropolitan Police Commissioner be getting round to investigating the countless ‘Cash for Medical Licenses’ scandals at the General Medical Council ?

    Are the very many outstanding allegations of Corruption ,Bribery, Racism and Medical Manslaughter currently surrounding Top Officers of the GMC not worthy of Comprehensive Police Investigations too ?

    Thankfully , we sincerely hope that the members of the Public will now take up the initiative and candidly sign our Online Petition to Abolish the GMC at http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/AbolishGMC

    Thank You !!!
