Huhne : April to June

The cutting below is taken from Chris Huhne’s pre-election spring leaflet as sent to constituents in his marginal Eastleigh constituency.

As you can see for yourself it consists of a number of family photo album type pictures with Huhne’s handwritten, heartfelt and sincere comments below the pictures of domestic enchantment; “getting married does not seem like 26 years ago”, “Family matters  to me so much. Where would we be without them?”

Seems like you’d be shagging the younger mistress without ‘em Chris…


He can hardly claim this is a mere Spring fling, nor is it the only marital indiscretion…

UPDATE : Chris Huhne is now the 40% favourite to be the next Cabinet Minister to leave government.

Huhne Leaving Wife for Mistress Exposed by News of the World

The News of the Screws has the scoop

Energy Secretary Chris Huhne is leaving his wife of 26 years after confessing to a long standing affair, the News of the World can reveal.  Huhne, 55, has been enjoying trysts with his secret mistress at the family’s constituency home for over a year. Last night he told us: “I am in a serious relationship with Carina Trimingham and I am separating from my wife.”

Lover Carina, 44, is Campaigns Director of the Electoral Reform Society. Huhne, named by Prime Minister David Cameron as the 10th most powerful man in the Cabinet, has been meeting her on Friday nights at his constituency house in Eastleigh, Hampshire, while loyal wife Vicky stayed at the family’s south London home.

On Friday, on her 44th birthday, Carina took the train to Huhne’s detached home in Eastleigh, arriving around 8pm. The pair spent the evening alone inside while Mrs Huhne remained in London. Huhne was due in Eastleigh that morning to conduct a constituency surgery but cancelled it at the last minute. This morning the pair left the house separately, minutes apart, to head to the station.

On the platform they stood apart then boarded different carriages. As the London Waterloo bound train sped off, Huhne made a quick call on his mobile then joined his lover in the first class carriage at the front of the train where they enjoyed breakfast together. Once at Waterloo they began the cloak and dagger tactics again, walking 10ft apart and leaving by different exits. But they met up again at the taxi rank, jumped into a black cab and headed into the city. It is believed the affair has been going on since at least May 2009 and the pair are thought to have met when Carina worked briefly for Huhne on his campaign team when he was fighting the Lib Dem’s leadership campaign in 2007. He finished runner-up to Nick Clegg. Divorcee Carina, lives with a female friend in central London.

There is some speculation that Huhne, who led the LibDem attacks on the former editor of the News of the World Andy Coulson, might be regretting so doing. It is probably just a coincidence…

Some More Equal Than Others

Portcullis House parliamentary offices are highly prized. They are light, spacious and luxurious. Only twqo floors are currently allocated to the Labour Party and unsurprisingly, all but a small handful are allocated to ex-ministers and very senior backbenchers. But what’s this? Extraordinarily, one or two first time MPs are so highly favoured that they are already ensconced within the hallowed portals that lesser lobby-fodder plot and plead for years to achieve. What possible influence could have been brought to bear that Jack Dromey has been catapulted into the Valhalla of ex-Cabinet Ministers within a mere six weeks of arriving in the House?  Answers consistent with trade union & Labour Party values in the comments please…

Quote of the Day

Labour’s Austin Mitchell muses on the campaign:

“What’s the problem? No use pointing at the leader. Too late to change and unnecessary for Miliband is doing well at Question Time. His problem is connecting with the real world. He doesn`t speak people and his protective team of naive kids are playing West Wing rather than letting the leader relate to real people. We could point at the party, shrunk in numbers and enthusiasm because everything, from policy formulation to candidate selection, comes top down rather than bubbling up from below so campaigning becomes the opium of members deprived of any real role, though they`re not even sure what they’re campaigning about, with or for, but its role is marginal.”
