Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has been questioned for a third time by detectives investigating allegations of "cash-for-honours."
Quick reminder: prosecutors asked the police to carry out a further round of investigation to work out if charges could be brought: Lord Levy and Downing Street aide Ruth Turner were both re-bailed at the start of the month.
The Times has this account of the spin-machine in action:
On the former Prime Minister's first day away from Downing Street, sources confirmed that the Metropolitan Police had questioned him as a witness once again, possibly in the past week.
The former Prime Minister's official spokesman had told reporters as recently as last Monday that he was not aware of Mr Blair being questioned. [my emphasis]
"Not aware" is what you might call the product plausible deniability - or, alternatively, lying through your teeth.
Today, Downing Street refused to answer questions on the affair, with a spokeswoman telling Times Online: "We only speak for the current Prime Minister." Mr Blair's office could not immediately be contacted.
Which is quite remarkable, given that Blair's been in front of cameras in his Sedgefield constituency for most of the afternoon.
