Report on Damian Green arrest sent to CPS

This Guardian article includes a statement from the acting Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. Ive not bothered to blog this affair, although it may yet turn out to involve crimes of the powerful. I suspect, however, that the real struggle is about the succession to Sir Ian Blair, but just who i up to what exactly I cant yet see for the smoke and mirrors.
The reorganisation of Special Branch into Counter Terrorism Command seemed a mistake at the time and if what Stephenson says here is true, then we may need a new unit to deal with allegations against top politicians and official leaks, which were/are an SB responsibility and now therefore come under CTC with all its spooky paranoia and excess of powers.
