I wrote about this THREE months ago. My 'gentlemen with the tea-leaves' (well, that's what I call them--would-be wrongdoers call them something else) who have contacted, nurtured, and protected me over the past nine months have always kept me in the loop. And in appreciation of their tender care I have always kept schtumm. Now there are just two more to go, and one of particular interest to yours truly.
Think of those Marlene concerts when she was singing a song from The Blue Angel.

Phone Hacking: The Sun's Whitehall Editor arrested in illegal payments probe
Clodagh Hartley, the Sun’s Whitehall Editor, has been arrested as part of the investigation into illegal payments to public officials, News International sources have confirmed.
The 37-year-old, who became the paper’s first female lobby journalist three years ago, was arrested when she attended Bromley Police Station by appointment this morning.
She was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to corrupt and suspicion of conspiracy to cause misconduct in a public office.
Ms Hartley is a long standing Sun reporter who has worked in Los Angeles for the paper and has also had spells as the consumer affairs correspondent and home affairs correspondent.
When she was appointed to the paper’s lobby staff three years ago, the then political editor, George Pascoe-Watson described her as a “distinguished veteran news reporter with ten years experience on the road”.
It is understood she has been on maternity leave from the paper in recent months.
