'Downing Street's Deep Throat'

'Downing Street's Deep Throat' is how they are describing the source of the memos that are threatening the Blair Bush worldwith the publishing of a second memo this week.

The second memo, sometimes referred to as DSM II, as in the Downing Street Memo II, said ministers were told that they had no choice but to find a way to make the war in Iraq legal.
Left wing bloggers celebrated at the publishing of the first front page story in the Washington Post about the memos.
And the Post declared that Downing Street now has a Deep Throat, a reference to the recently unmasked famous Watergate informant, FBI second-in-command Mark Felt.
The Post said a high level official "seems to have taken up a mission of helping an investigative reporter probe allegations of misconduct and cover-up."

Meanwhile in England the memos are not getting onto the BBC

Why not?
