One intriguing story has gone quiet.
In December it grabbed the headlines. Lib Dem Mike Hancock said Katia Zatuliveter, 25, had nothing to hide, he backed her 100%, and would appeal.
The she faced deportation proceedings after she was taken into custody on the orders of MI5, the Sunday Times claims. A security source is said to have told the Sunday Times that Ms Zatuliveter's presence was not "conducive to national security", and the intention was to "show her the door".
A parade of security 'experts' told daytime viewers of the blood-curdling consequences if Katia was allowed to roam free among the secrets of the Defence Committee and the Council of Europe. What secrets? There are none. All the affairs of the bodies that Mike Hancock serves are in the public domain.
Are we safe in our beds. If the 'experts' were right, 'no' because Katia is free. Such is the danger and urgency of the case she will not be called on to give evidence in her defence until October. This is the first date that the MI5 man has free in his diary. He is fully occupied chasing other hares. The full story would make a good book.
A farce of course.
