The words of Lord Levy's lawyer - speaking on behalf of one of Blair's inner circle - suggest that this one is now in orbit around a very distant planet.
Lord Levy may find there is an unfortunate obstacle to this willingness to co-operate with the police. Back in April Guido Fawkes repeated a Peter Oborne story from the Spectator (the original story now seems to have disappeared):
"Lord Levy remains deeply, deeply disappointed that the police decided that they should use their powers of arrest for the meeting.
"Lord Levy has always been ready and willing to co-operate and to meet the police at any time of their choosing.
"He has always been only too willing, also, to provide the police with any documents that they might have needed, and he continues to do so."
it emerges that the Marylebone offices of the New Labour treasurer, Lord Levy, have been devastated by a mysterious fire. This took place last November, well before the police investigation began and around the time the House of Lords Appointments Commission raised the first queries concerning Tony Blair’s list. When I rang Downing Street for a reassurance that no papers relevant to the police investigation had been destroyed, I was informed that ‘that is a matter for Lord Levy’.I expect he was deeply, deeply disappointed by the fire too.
