There's been a lot of to-ing and fro-ing in the previous threads about whether the Police needed warrant or not. The Police apparently think they did, because they had three warrants issued at 5.15pm on Wednesday. One was to seach Damian Green's Ashford home, one to search his London home and one to search his constituency office.
Why did they not apply for a warrant to search his House of Commons office? Did they think they didn't need one? Or was it because Jill Pay had already given them the nod.
Or there is another explanation. The Police did think they needed a warrant to search Green's Commons Office, applied for it, but the magistrate turned it down. Unlikely, but in this peculiar story nothing is impossible.
Anyone know how this could be checked out?
