Simpson: Grewal tapes are pretty thin gruel

Jeffrey Simpson expresses dismay at Grewal's procedure.


Money quote:
Are there no limits? Mr. Grewal, and the Conservative leadership, should release all the tapes if they wish to use eight minutes of them for partisan purposes. Then everybody could judge whether indeed Mr. Grewal was on some kind of bizarre sting operation, organized either by himself, or with the encouragement of senior party members, or, as it equally plausible to an outsider, that he was indeed sniffing around, visiting cabinet ministers, opening up lines of communication for a switch, hoping to secure something then or later for himself and/or his wife.

Paul Wells agrees with your assessment - or at least of Simpson's assessment here:
