Inquiry moves closer to Blair.

Blair "gatekeeper" questioned by Yates.

According to today's Times, Ruth Turner, Downing Street's director of government relations, is the latest to be questioned by Inspector John Yates in the "cash for peerages" inquiry. Ruth took over from Anji Hunter and was questioned about a number of emails discussing which party lenders could be placed on a list of nominees for peerages, before being forwarded to the House of Lords Appointments Commission.

The investigation of inter-office emails at Downing Street is likely to be of ever growing concern to the Prime Minister, as the inquiry moves uncomfortably closer. Perhaps he should reconsider his timetable for leaving office, so as not to despoil his "legacy".
