Smith back in the spotlight

Just when she thought everyone was finally looking the other way, Jacqui Smith will find a good few fingers pointing at her again today.

The Home Affairs Select Committee report into the Damian Green affair concludes the Cabinet Office exaggerated national security implications of leaks that led to Green’s arrest.

Indeed, it was evidence from the Home Office that convinced committee members national security was not at such a risk.

If that was the case why didn’t Smith realise things were getting out of hand and do something?

Vaz seemed to suggest today that the exaggeration was not sanctioned by ministers, only officials – if so, why didn’t officials speak to their ministers about such a crucial matter?

A Home Secretary in a strong position might find this one a toughie.

I sense the smell of McPoison hereabouts.

She may have other things on her mind, £10 porn films, a blue plaque on her home, not sure where she was staying that night...

Ahhhhh.... you can't keep a good woman down. Just when you thought that Guido and his blog had stolen all the headlines, Labour's arch mistress of sleaze bounces back into the headlines....

A week is a long time in politics.

I wonder how long it will take for that nasty little git Hoon to trump her...

Because aver 7 seconds she is working out how much she can claim on her expenses for her husbands excessive use of toilet roll, cleanex, hankies, underwear, hand lotion, rubber bands, oranages, belts, carpet stain remover, clothing stain remover and TV screen cleaner.

Yet more mendaciousness and incompetence from LieBore. Shameful and vomit inducing.
