Police consider PM probe over slurs

28 September 2005

A police force is considering whether to investigate Tony Blair over an alleged slur against the Welsh.

Former Downing Street spin doctor Lance Price claimed in his diaries that the Prime Minister repeatedly made derogatory remarks about the Welsh while watching the disappointing results of the Assembly elections in 1999.

The claim was made in a draft version of the diaries, but toned down in the final published version.

North Wales Police confirmed it had received a complaint about the alleged comment and was seeking the advice of the Crown Prosecution Service.

A spokesman said: "A complaint has been received and is being reviewed. We will be seeking the advice of the CPS in relation to the contenhttp://www.thisislondon.com/news/articles/PA_NEWA1268759112789... of the statement of complaint."
