The Electoral Commission has today (28 April) announced that as part of the investigation launched on 18 February 2016 into Conservative Party campaign spending returns, it has requested that the Crown (CPS) Prosecution Service and the police consider applying for an extension to the time limit available to pursue criminal prosecutions.
Representatives of the CPS, the Police and the Electoral Commission are meeting on Wednesday 4 May to discuss this request. The final decision to apply for an extension will rest with the police and the CPS.
Bob Posner, Director of Party and Election Finance & Legal Counsel at the Electoral Commission said,
“The police and the CPS both have the power to apply to the Courts to extend the time limit on bringing criminal prosecutions for electoral offences to allow for full investigations to take place. We have requested that they consider doing this.”

It will be the usual procedure, hold some talks, have an inquiry even, waste some time and lots of taxpayers hard-earned, then kick it firmly into touch as a job well done.
Have you not learnt from successive Governments that justice is only for the little people. Rule makers can be rule breakers with impunity.

Stopped watching BBC news some time ago. I stick with channel 4. Its excellent coverage of this has been a carefully nuanced reveal over several weeks.

I used to find it outrageous that the editorial content of the BBCs output on society was provided ( for ages) by Polly Toynbee. I know most Conservatives find it astonishing that they are obliged to fund an organisation with an all too obvious stake in a big state high tax model and a long history of squashing any market entrant .
I take a more relaxed view nowadays. It may be illogical and a slice of Stalin in a mixed economy but its we have got and it does some things very well. The headline news is reasonably neutral the comedy and drama leftward tilted but so is the whole media and arts world so I `m not sure you can blame the BBC. Like any bureaucracy it is highly risk averse and slow so excels at worthy projects like Wolfhall or its superb Natural History output. We do not get Breaking Bad The Wire , Family Values Seinfeld or any of the thrilling US entertainment .
Still, worthy can be good and we are now in a positon of being able to choose from many sources Net Flix Amazon Video Sky and many more are making the running in new ideas, while the BBC provides a high quality and reliable if slightly dull alternative .
Personally I think its ok but does need to be constantly criticised if it is to retain its unique and privileged positon. It has abused it may times and if , at this stage of licensing it does not choose to further antagonise a Party that already loathes it I would not be at all surprised .

Paul, old son, you really need to improve your writing.
Your post appears to suggest that ignoring Conservative’s criminal fraud is somehow a consequence of and, by extension, proof of the BBC’s left wing bias.
As we all know that’s absurd, so it’s probably a confusion from your inability to be concise coupled with your poor grammar skills. The more you go on (and on and on), the more garbled it gets.
Just playing Devil’s advocate here of course, you might actually be retarded.
Have another try.

I don’t suppose anybody is under doubt why you would describe a TV show wherein a ruling elite class uses violence and deceit against their society to maintain power as ‘absolutely brill’.
