In explaining why Damian Green was not going to be prosecuted, the Director of Public Prosecutions told us much about New Labour’s corruption of the Civil Service. Not only did the information he had received not endanger national security and not endanger life, but:
“Much of it was known to others outside the civil service, for example the security industry or the Labour party or Parliament”
WHAT? That lets some very large and furry cats out of the bag. Information which was officially classified within the Home Office, and which civil servants were attempting to keep secret from you and me, even by calling in the Police, was available to the Labour Party? I can think of no instance where that would be constitutional.
We need to know urgently, which information was classified and kept secret by the Home Office but known to the Labour Party, and why.
There could be no more graphic illustration of the failure of our politicised civil service to distinguish between the interests of the state and of New Labour.
The same goes in spades for the “Security industry” – the one exponential growth area of the economy under New Labour.
