Breaking News - Conservative MP Damian Green arrested

No more news other than what is on the BBC website, but this story seems very odd indeed.

Politics descends to a new low.

You could understand this if he had been handed national secrets or documents which risked a threat to national security if released, but the leaks under investigation appear to be about Home Office cock ups!

This story is far from over. When it is revealed who knew about this arrest and who authorised the use of counter terrorism officers against an MP, things will get ugly.

Be afraid, if you criticise the government, they'll send some anti terrorist police round.

How many others find this worrying? I know I do

If we have reached the point that a senior MP can be arrested by 9 anti-terrorism officers on the request of a civil servant then I am gobsmacked.

None of the leaks that seem to be connected with this arrest undermined the security or integrity of the UK, other than being embarrassing to the Government of the day.

Unless the Government takes steps to ensure that this cannot happen again, then we seem to be on a road to a state where the Police are used cover up an administration's failing and that is a scary road to be on.
