Drowning Street - (Ass Mess): As officers from the Met's Serious & Organised Crime Squad prepare to swoop on No 10 Drowning Street tomorrow morning to grill the Prime Monster over selling Peerages to the IRA, a taskforce of bailiffs is poised to freeze all his and Cherie's assets in accordance with bankruptcy proceedings instituted against him by his creditors in the Royal Courts of Justice.
The Blairs' recent Florida holiday saw desperate attempts to hush the couple's secret offshore tax accounts which Bermuda lawyer Justin Williams helped to set up for the couple with over $20 million of siphoned off funds from off-balance sheet Enron projects.
But now this pernicious get-rich-quick scheme has been rumbled after the Met admitted they had taken a keen interest in the Blairs' finances over twenty years ago after busting UK fraudster and mega-bankrupt Robert Maxwell RIP in a child sex brothel in North London.
As the Prime Monster settles down to eat his Last Supper of crow and humble pie before the fateful knock on the front door of Number Ten on Monday morning, spooks in the CIA are staying tight-lipped on whether or not they too have tracked President George Bush's finances over the last two decades, and just not mentioned it.
But it's broad smiles and relaxed insousiance all around in spookland and copsville as the winter holiday season comes to a close and the gloves finally come off.
More developments expected tomorrow.
