Cash for honours: nearly time to start feeling collars?

A few weeks ago, Assistant Commissioner John Yates wrote a letter to the House of Commons public administration committee, detailing the progress made by his inquiry into cash for honours.

According to the the Daily Mail, Yates also secretly briefed the committee, telling them that he was confident he would have enough evidence to bring charges and, in terms of the inquiry's progress, "he was 80 per cent of the way there."

Much as it would be fun to see Blair in the dock, it somehow seems the most unlikely outcome, however optimistic Yates might be.
