Prisons Minister caught in another scandal

The Prisons minister, Gerry Sutcliffe, appears to have been caught out attemtping to politicise the Civil Service. The Sunday Times have an email which shows his office attempting to draw up a lists of probation officers categorised by how positive or negative they are to Government legislation.

In the private sector such lists would be called "shit lists", which exist simply to allow people to know who should or should not be treated fairly, or worst of all, managed out of the door. This comes a week after Sutcliffe became embroiled in a "cash for access" lobby story also revealed by the Sunday Times and comprehensively covered by Iain.
