PMOS Wrong, Guido Knows

Yesterday morning the Lobby asked the PMOS about Downing Street’s email systems, the official Lobby note says:
Asked if there were a separate e-mail address such as some using the letter X and some not, the PMOS said no. Asked if people had ‘Hotmail’ accounts at Downing Street, the PMOS said because of security access to such e-mails accounts was not allowed. The police had had full access to everything they wanted. The fallacy was that in someway Downing Street had not cooperated with the police, that was not true.

On both the X-prefix point and the Hotmail question, Guido has direct experience of email exchanges with Downing Street people using “x.gsi.gov.uk” mail accounts and using Hotmail to, errm, well… lets just say Guido knows they use them. So perhaps the PMOS can check again and make a correction on Monday. Emails will be to the Blairgate cover-up, what tapes were to the Watergate cover-up.
