Things Have Been Quiet On This Front But Not For Much Longer
Lord McAlpine is dropping his threat to sue the world. I imagine he was advised he was making a fool of himself. He will, however, be going ahead with his action against Sally Bercow. I predict he'll lose. Meanwhile a much bigger- but related- scandal is about to break. According to insiders the police will shortly be arresting one of McAlpine's former colleagues- a veteran of the Thatcher years and one of the grandest of Tory grandees- on charges of child abuse and child rape. The people who protected this man and kept him in gainful employment (many of them currently in government) must be working very hard right now on their alibis and excuses. "It wasn't me; it was my PPS and he acted entirely without my authority."
