So the noble lord McAlpine’s solicitors are having a cosy ‘scoping’ session down with the lads at Scotland Yard to see if any imaginable law might be ‘scoped’ to bring a prosecution against the Tweeters – or some of them m’lud particularly dislikes. Try this yourselves. ‘Have you come to report a crime? No… but I was wondering if we could stretch the law against to include…..’ Won’t get far I fear. So here’s one I’ve already prepared:
Edwina Currie clearly knew – its in her own book – that Thatcher’s PPS Peter Morrison was a ‘noted paedophile’ but did nothing. So I’d like to scope the ‘failing to report a crime’ or ‘aiding and abetting’ laws to see if she could be prosecuted. Let me know how it goes. Try booking in a ‘scoping session’ today.
