Misconduct in public office

The title of a press release by Andrew Withers, the contents of which have been posted by IanPJ on Politics. To understand the background to this matter I would direct you to this page on IPJ's blog.

It is no wonder that more and more people in this country are coming to the opinion that politics and the civil service are no longer the 'honourable' professions that they used to be. Both professions should be acting in the public interest - unfortunately, as IPJ states, the public interest is not served by smears, forgeries, contempt of Court and criminal activity.

Bearing in mind that this matter in effect began back in 2008, it would seem that a number of political figures (of all three 'major' parties) and civil servants are likely to receive some, for them, very unwelcome publicity.
