Although this action is not illegal , unless there was an intend to istribute the tapes to others , its incredible that the seniour police officer in
this country has shuch a " relationship " with the seniour law lord , that he felt the need to tape convesations , secretly .
- Well that's one way to look at it.
On the other hand anyone dealing with 'legal-eese' might have some sympathy for his claim that normally those conversations are recorded and the
'stenographer' type person was unavailable and to hope to take in all that was said he recorded it for himself.
It's also worth bearing in mind that whilst Sir Ian has many supporters in the Met Police thanks to his strong views he has also made many enemies
within the Met (which is believed to be how come this stuff got out).
At the end of the day if he and the Attorney General were happy enough to sort it out between themselves one can't help wondering what all the fuss
.....and whilst I agree he ought to have known better and should have been much more tactfull in how he put it I do think he had a valid point in the
links you provided.
