I can't remember where I read it, but on Tuesday a political journalist speculated that the reason why George Osborne was so well prepared to give his excellent speech on Monday, was that his team had been leaked all the details of the PBR by someone in the Treasury. Nick Watt has some details HERE. What he doesn't mention is that a senior (non MP) Tory staffer was apparently spotted in St James's Park talking to a senior Treasury official. No crime in that (or at least you'd think so), but the Treasury's "mole-watch" machine has gone into overdrive.
If, indeed, a mole is found and exposed, can we expect the Shadow Chancellor to be arrested too?
And what about David Davis? Far be it from me to want to see the old knuckleduster behind bars, but with the number of leaks he had during his time as Shadow Home Secretary, surely at least one of them must fall under the same kind of legislation which led to the arrest of Damian Green? And if not, why not?
