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.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
