Lord Justice Moses and Mr Justice Sullivan said in the ruling: "We fear for
the reputation of the administration of justice if it can be perverted by a
threat. "No one, whether within this country or outside, is entitled to
interfere with the course of our justice."
What does Tony Blair and Gordon Brown do?
Gordon Brown, through his spokesman, has made it clear he was completely
behind his predecessor, Tony Blair, in wanting the inquiry dropped after the
Saudis warned they could stop supplying intelligence to the security services if
the investigation continued.
Wonderful, Gordon Brown, its great to see that you are standing up for justice, transparency and the rule of law.
And the new DG, what does he say?The judgment of the divisional court raises principles of general public
importance affecting, among other things, the independence of prosecutors and the role of the court in reviewing a prosecutor's evaluation of the public interest in a case like this. The court itself has commented that the issues raised in this case are important points of public interest.
Welcome to the real life, Mr. Alderman, your independence was crucially compromised when you and your organisation cowardly refused to stand up to these Labour incompetent idiots and force justice to take place. THAT was your job and you fell down, and now you are appealing against the fact that somebody said so?
Wonderful, I can well see how appealing your organisation will be to your people. Next time I meet somebody from the SFO, this is what I will tell him, so you work for that cowardly supine organisation? That organisation which protects corrupt companies? So what makes me think that you are worthy of my tax dollars to protect the country from fraud and corruption? Nothing.
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
