Grant Shapps, Conservative Party Chairman, has said it's time to draw a line under the issue of Maria Miller's expenses, and the apparent attempt by one of Miler's staff to intimidate a newspaper that was investigating the story. Miller is the Culture Secretary, the minister responsible for regulation of the press.

Shapps' comment seems to translate as "We don't have any good answers to these questions, so we're asking our allies in the media to change the subject." At least, that's the charitable view. A less charitable view would be that this is a misguided attempt to intimidate all of the media.
