The disgraceful episode of the arrest and taping of Damian Green hs been brought to a close. It is another shameful episode in New Labour’s attack on civil liberties.
The most important point is that all of the information leaked by or to Damian Green should have been public in the first place. That it was classified is symptomatic of the politicisation of Home Office officials under New Labour.
I have already written much in support of Mr Green. But for now, I will again ask the question: why did we see this police action against Galley and Green, where there is still no investigation into Damian McBride for the offence of Misconduct in Public Office, of which he looks to me as guilty as can be?
