The Beeb has been very wary about the whole Loans for Lordships saga, this signals that they are starting to realise that this corruption reaches into Downing Street.
Guido has been tipped off that tonight Robert Peston* will flesh out details of the transactions between No. 10, Lord Levy, Ruth Turner and Gulaam Noon tonight on the BBC 10 O’Clock News. This is the nomination which was too much for the Lords Appointments Commission. The whole affair stinks and the smell isn’t curry.
UPDATE : Odd – in the version that was read over the phone to Guido, Ruth Turner was mentioned, in the broadcast she was not. She is mentioned in the online story.
