David Cameron, we are informed by a sauce close to his table, finds himself with a difficult problem.
Having announced, following the imprisonment of his former aide Andy Coulson, that 'NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW' he finds himself with the fact that those powerful enough to destroy any evidence against them are indeed 'above the law'.
American adviser Bing Crosby has been worst than useless with the suggestion that a clever diversionary tactic would be to concentrate on Christmas with the slogan 'I'm Dreamin' Of A White Christmas' .
So Cameron set about adapting the phrase 'Nobody is Above the Law' by adding 'unless it is in the public interest'.
Unfortunately the press release containing the announcement contained a fatal typo error. The statement that 'Nobody is Above the Law, except in the public interest', became 'NOBODY IS ABOVE THE LAW, EXCEPT IN THE PUBIC INTEREST'.
As Cameron conceded this was rather too close to the truth.
