No CommentAndrew Pierce, assistant editor of The Times, is getting all the good leaks from Operation Ribble, the Met’s investigation of cash for peerages.

Now, he is reporting ‘senior Whitehall sources’ as telling him that Lord Levy read a prepared statement when arrested and then replied ‘no comment’ to police questions. The source is reported saying that this will slow the investigation, increase its costs and delay the questioning of Tony Blair that was expected at the end of September.

“You do not have to say anything, but it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned something that you later rely on in court. Anything you say may be given in evidence.”
