Downing Street has refused to comment on reports that police foiled a plot to kidnap Tony Blair's five-year-old son, Leo. The plan is alleged to have involved extremists sympathisers with the Fathers 4 Justice campaigning group. According to the Sun newspaper, the intention was to snatch Leo, the Blairs' youngest son, and hold him hostage to highlight the plight of fathers denied access to their children.
I was all set to unleash my disdain for Fathers 4 Justice, but I noticed that the story originates from the Sun, so I'm assuming that it's based on roughly 1% fact, 49% badly-hidden agenda, and 50% sales seeking.
Now I'm all ranted up with nowhere to go.
