Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    "I have the support and sympathy of very many people in public life"

    I think that quote perfectly sums up why the so called "inquiry" (yet another whitewash) will say that Jowell has not been involved in a serious breach of ministerial code. This report from today's Guardian:

    Sir Gus has been investigating whether Ms Jowell should have declared an alleged £350,000 gift from Mr Berlusconi. It is alleged the money was offered in return for Mr Mills giving helpful testimony in an investigation into alleged corruption by Mr Berlusconi. Ms Jowell and her husband have categorically denied the money was from Mr Berlusconi, insisting that it came from one of Mr Mills' other clients. The money went to pay off a mortgage on their home, in turn raised to fund an investment in a hedge fund called Centurion. Sir Gus will rule on whether Ms Jowell should have notified the investment to the register of members' interests. Tony Blair has to decide on what action he should take in light of Sir Gus's report.

    Looking after their own, in other words.

    A clean bill of health from Blair won't save her - only delay the inevitable outcome.

    Her departure!

    Indeed, a clean bill of health from Blair means nothing Colcam.
