UK condones corruption

This story is very bad news for the rule of law in the UK and removes the last vestiges of credibility of Prime Minister Blair's whiter than white cabinet. "It has been necessary to balance the need to maintain the rule of law against the wider public interest" (Attorney General Lord Goldsmith in the House of Lords this afternoon). Furthermore, our conclusion about the motivation for the Saudis' opposition against the SFO investigation in question is now inevitable indeed.
