Labour's chief fundraiser Lord Levy has been re-arrested by police looking into cash-for-honours allegations.
He was questioned on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and later bailed.
Lord Levy, a close ally of Tony Blair, was first arrested last year in connection with claims honours had been sold in exchange for party donations.

What is meant by honors here? Like a title of nobility or some type of award or something?

One element of all of this that constantly seems to be left out is that
it is a perfectly legal and normal part of our politics here for the main (ie largest elected) British political parties to nominate people for a 'Peerage' to the HOL for 'political services' to that party.
Quite how the cops reckon they can prove anything dodgy or corrupt when the 'remit' is as broad and so focussed on the partys' own interest(s) as that escapes me entirely.
IMO it's quite obvious that the Police have nothing.
They've been trying to pressurise perfectly respectable people with 'strong-arm' bullying tactics - the arrest of Ruth Turner at 6.30am with media cameras in tow was about as low as it gets.

lol keep turning the Labour spin.
Its obvious we are dealing with a case of corruption, and all the facts are true.
including that secret server (which i posted the DIRECT link to on RATS).
How you can deny it is laughable
even when cabinet ministers have been speaking to the papers about the fear of taking a beating in the polls
Blair has ruined the Labour Party
*sits and waits for this thread to be turned to the Tories...*
Tony Blair was questioned for a second time by police investigating cash-for-honours allegations it has emerged, after a six-day news blackout.
The interview, which lasted 45 minutes, took place in No 10 last Friday and was kept secret at the request of police.
