Leaker Faces 25 Years Jail

Scooter Libby, ex-Whitehouse chief of staff to Vice-President Dick Cheney, today faces a prison term of up to 25 years for leaking and obstructing justice. Could it happen here?
Say if someone equivalent in Downing Street was caught leaking… oh hold on, Downing Street deny leaking. The PMOS actually said today “Suggestions that we leaked or were trying to leak this information are just plain wrong – and that’s not based on my personal hunch. It’s because there are inaccuracies in reports which mean it can’t have come from No. 10.” When we leak, we get it right..

Oh, but McTernan is not in Downing Street now, he is in Scotland…
