This morning, the Today programme interviewed the solicitor for those seeking a judicial review of the Met's handling of the Andy Coulson allegations.
When Justin Webb put it to her that this was just a bit of political mischief, she replied indignantly. No, no, no, not in the least. Yes, one of her clients was a former Labour minister. But another was Brian Paddick - "a former policeman and now a freelance journalist".
So clearly this model of apolitical rectitude is not this Brian Paddick: the one who stood as LibDem candidate for Mayor of London.
