Michael Brown and that donation

Whilst The Times almost single handedly thinks the Michael Brown donation is a legitimate line of attack, I heard recently that the Special Branch gave him a clean bill of health when he made the donation. Whilst some feel the need with the advantage of hindsight to question the donation, and whilst the guy at the time simply seemed to be a rich eccentric, it seems to me that he checked out at the time.

I've heard this rumour too, but the fact remains that at the time, Brown had a number of US arrest warrants out for him. I'm not convinced that "the British intelligence services are useless" is any more of an excuse for us than it is for Tony Blair re: Iraq.
