Just a few days after Blair allegedly "dressed down" Charles Clarke about being soft on anti-social behaviour, and orders Home Office hard-liner Louise Casey to report directly to him, she finds herself the subject of an investigation into remarks 'leaked' from a tape of a speech she made.... a month ago! Included in her remarks was the statement that Government ministers might perform better if they "turn up in the morning pissed", adding: "Doing things sober is no way to get things done". Could it be that someone in the Home Office was "pissed" about Clarke's handbagging by Tone. Surely not?
