Home Office Refuse to Deny Hogan Howe Tendered Resignation

Guido put it to the Home Office yesterday that Bernard Hogan Howe offered to resign over a coming scandal, and asked them to confirm whether or not Theresa May had rejected his resignation. Their official response:

“No comment.”

Why not just deny it? ‘Ello, ‘ello, ‘ello, what’s going on here then?

UPDATE: A new line from the Home Office:

“He did not offer Theresa his resignation and he would have no reason to do so.”

UPDATE II: Exaro News has followed up the story, also reporting that Hogan Howe tendered his resignation and revealing the Home Office’s confusion this afternoon.

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
