From The Independent in Britain:
Cash-for-honours trail that leads to Number 10
Levy arrested again – and this time on suspicion of perverting course of justice

Lord Levy, the Labour Party’s chief fundraiser, has been arrested for a second time, increasing pressure on Tony Blair over the “cash-for-honours” affair.
Scotland Yard said the peer, known as “Lord Cashpoint“, was detained on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice when he answered bail yesterday for alleged breaches of the Honours (Prevention of Abuses) Act 1925 and the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000.
He was bailed pending further inquiries.
The dramatic twist led opposition politicians to compare the affair to the cover-up after the Watergate crisis, which led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon in 1974.
Lord Levy, who is also the Prime Minister’s personal envoy to the Middle East, is the second close ally of Mr Blair to be arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
Ruth Turner, Downing Street‘s director of government relations, was arrested at her home 12 days ago.

Lord Levy and ‘Lady’ Turner are just the “organ-grinder’s monkeys”.
The “organ-grinder” Blair should be arrested next.
Not just for this financial scandal, also for other financial scandals.
And for the bloody Iraq war, based on lies.
He should get, contrary to Saddam Hussein, a fair trial, where his lawyers are not murdered, and the government does not dismiss judges for political reasons.
Like Saddam, he deserves the maximum penalty (which should not be the barbaric death penalty).
