Re: Jacqui Smith
I understand you have written to the Home Secretary asking her to provide more details of the number nights she stays at her sister's house in South London. This follows evidence provided by her neighbours.
May I suggest that there is a simple solution to this. Perhaps you should ask her to ask her security detail to provide you with a record of exactly where she spends the majority of her time. If the response is that providing such information to you would jeopardise national security (or her own) it would surely smack of hyprocrisy from the woman who wants all of our details on any number of databases.
