The Father Ted defence

The Independent reports forthcoming "humiliation" for Britain, with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development about to reprimand Britain over the BAE/Saudi corruption case. Meanwhile former CIA officer Robert Baer writes in the Indy that the Saudi's have never given anyone any useful intelligence, in spite of Tony Blair's claim that this would be put at risk. It's worth remembering that MI6 chief John Scarlett refused to sign up to this at the time.

I hadn't realised before, but Saudi Prince Bandar has deployed the Father Ted defence, that the money was just resting in this account:
Bandar claims that the BAE payments weren't a bribe. The money only passed through his accounts and went to various government projects.
