Seen on an Evening Standard poster bill on Friday: “Dramatic development in cash for honours case”.
The fact? The police had delivered a file to the Crown Prosecution Service. Possibly (or possibly not) the first time that the delivery of a file has been identified as a dramatic development.
Mind you, there may indeed be dramatic developments – The Sunday Times is today reporting that Jonathan Powell, Blair’s chief of staff, may face changes. Which would be an ignominious, if perhaps fitting, end to the Blair premiership.
