Milburn questioned .

Couldn't happen to a nicer bloke...

Ex-minister and 2005 election supremo Alan Milburn has been interviewed by police probing the cash-for-honours affair, the BBC has learned.
Chancellor Gordon Brown and Deputy PM John Prescott have also been contacted about the loans made to Labour before the election, it is understood.

Blair next ?

The officer in charge of the investigation, John Yates, has previously told MPs that "you go where the evidence takes you".
BBC political editor Nick Robinson said it was for this reason that friends of Prime Minister Tony Blair expect him to be interviewed - possibly under caution - in the weeks to come.
However, they insist Mr Blair, who sits on the NEC, has had no contact with the police as yet.
