Carry on, minister ?

April 10th, 2009 Posted in UK Politics by

Caroline Flint secret documentBob Quick secret document


Ms Flint (the then Minister for housing) exposed a secret ministerial briefing document about the weakness of the housing market that caused panic across the property sector in May 2008.

Mr Quick (Britain’s anti-terrorism chief) exposed a secret briefing document on Operation Pathway resulting in the premature arrest of alleged members of a suspected al-Qaeda cell in April 2009.

The difference is that the policeman quit having been told he had lost the confidence of M15 and the Home Secretary. The Minister stayed in place until October 2008 before being given the job of Minister for Europe.

Double Standards or what?
