Conservative MP Damian Green won’t be charged after being earlier arrested for releasing leaked information about immigration levels from the Home Office. In this case, common sense has prevailed.
It’s been a disaster for the hapless Home Secretary Jacqui Smith from start to finish. Why on earth spend so much time and effort in trying to stop such information on controversial issues getting into the public domain? As I earlier posted, she, and those in the rest of the government, should have been more open and honest with the public about their policies in the first place.
If neither Green, nor, Christopher Galley, the civil servant who was at centre of the row, will be prosecuted, surely Ms Smith should be charged with wasting police time?
