Blair tries the Abu Hamza Defence

From The Telegraph:
Downing Street has instructed lawyers to challenge any prosecution based on the cash for honours investigation because ministers believe it has been compromised by unauthorised leaks. [Says Downing Street!]...

The lawyers have complained to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) that the investigation, which began in March, has been undermined by dozens of leaks to the media which they blame on Scotland Yard...

Hamza claimed a fair trial was "impossible" because of a campaign against him by the media and politicians. Judgment will be given later.

Downing Street is coming to the same view that if there is to be a prosecution it will be almost impossible for there to be a fair trial because of the volume of stories in newspapers and on television and radio which have linked key Labour Party figures to the first political corruption investigation involving a serving Prime Minister for more than 70 years.


It’s already becoming known as the Abu Hamza Defence. I hope that phrase sticks - it'll really piss them off at Number 10.

Things look bleak for Mr Blair but I really really really hope that Gordon Brown is dragged into it too.

Guido seems to think that Brown is not exactly squeaky clean in the area of paid-for peerages, what with his 'Trust' and all.

I hope the bearded Catholic conspirator is correct.

I don't think you should push your luck Clematis! Let's get Blair, and Brown will be tarred by the association.

I want to see Blair being escorted from Downing St by police. That will be my all-time favourite TV moment!

Maybe he should be guided out of the floodlit door of No 10 Downing St with a blanket over his head, to hide his identity.

Or a blanket over his arms to hide the handcuffs would also be a good option.
