Cash for honours – The big interview this weekend?

Guido Fawkes reports that Tony Blair will be interviewed “under caution” by the police, possibly tonight soon, in relation to the Cash for Honours investigation.

I remain sceptical about this “under caution” business, but it might be worth keeping one eye on the news this evening.

Three asides though:

1. Blair said this afternoon that ‘Our tolerance is part of what makes Britain, Britain. So conform to it; or don’t come here.’ This is far stronger language than we have heard from Mr Blair in the past. I find it interesting that he said this today, especially if Guido Fawkes’s speculation is correct, as it could be perceived as ‘burying bad news’.

2. An anonymous MP (allegedly) writes on Guido’s blog:

I was sat opposite him during PMQs when James Duddridge (Rochford & Southend East, Conservative) asked “Does the Prime Minister expect to be interviewed under caution by the police this weekend?” Blair replied “For very obvious reasons, I have absolutely nothing to say on that subject.” The TV cameras didn’t catch how he was hyper-ventilating and his face was flushed.

3. But here’s a contradictory – and slightly plausible – theory. This rumour’s being propagated by backbench Tory MPs hoping to give the Prime Minister a rough weekend. Guido Fawkes is being used as their mouthpiece.

We should find out fairly soon whether this whole story’s a load of spin.
