Assistant Commissioner John Yates quits Met Police amid phone-hacking scandal ~ link ~ Now it gets interesting! John Yates ran the Cash for Peerages Scandal Investigation that forced Tony Blair to resign as Prime Minister. Now he has to resign due to his connection with Murdoch. It was John Yates that I went to, and had a long one-on-one transatlantic phone conversation with, follow up by multiple other conversations with his people and my supplying of about 70 pages of documentation on my peerage claim case. Information that could have put Tony Blair and several top Cabinet officers in prison for selling peerages. The investigating MPs need to ask what Murdoch's role was in all of this. Was I hacked? Was the conversations that I had over the criminal acts by the PM and the Lord Chancellor/etc. hacked? Was this information used by Murdoch? This goes at the very heart of the United Kingdom Government, to the Prime Minister's office, to the Cabinet, and to Buckingham Palace. Stirling

Hon. John Whittingdale, MP
The Assistant Commission of the Met Police, Mr. John Yates, has resigned due to his connections with the Murdoch organization. I phoned your office with some information but was given the brush off.
I supplied key information to John Yates, in a long transatlantic phone conversation, on criminal acts by the Tony Blair government re: The Cash for Peerages scandal. I was also interviewed by several of his officers and supplied some 70 pages of printed information to him. I was interviewed by Murdoch's news organizations about same. Were my calls to and from Scotland Yard hacked? Did John Yates provide inside information on this to the Murdoch news organizations? I was able to destroy Blair's only legal defense that he was not in violation of the Honours Prevention of Abuse Act (his claim was that he was not taking 'donations' for Honours but was appointing 'working party peers'). However, in my case it involved several old 'Scots Peerage' hereditary peerages (as well as a Baronetcy and the Chiefship of Clan Alexander) and a possible life peerage. I would not donate to the Labour Party or to any other organization to get the Blair government to follow the law in my case. I am a former Scots Editor at Burke's Peerage and know the relevant laws in considerable detail. My case could have sent Tony Blair and several Labour Cabinet ministers to prison. While this case may be more in the domain of the Home Affairs Committee, it is also well within your Committee's remit. You might ask those appearing before your committee the following questions: Did the Murdoch news organizations involve themselves in the most sensitive matter of the removal of the Prime Minister from office and also in the decision to criminally charge or not charge senior members of the then government with violations of the Honours Prevention of Abuse Act, as a part of their phone hacking operations? Did they hack the telephone calls and fax transmissions between myself and John Yates and/or any of his officers? Did they discus the information, which I supplied to the Met. Police on this criminal matter of vital national importance, with Mr. Yates?
