Exclusive: Proof Vicky Pryce Was Not In Essex That Day

Vicky Pryce claims that she was at work in central London on the 12th March 2003 and “attended a high profile conference” so she could not have taken the points in Essex. And it looks like she is telling the truth. She wouldn’t have got out of this event at the LSE until late that night:

Wednesday 12 March 2003 City Alumni event: 

“The New Economy was a fraud perpetrated by a slick public-relations machine” 
Panel: Diane Coyle, Stephen King, Vicky Pryce. Old Theatre, LSE. 6:30pm. 

Guido is FoIing the latest reincarnation of the DTI to get her diary for the rest of the day. Ever keen to help the police investigation, now all the Police need to do is look to see if Vicky took any points that day and at what time. Simples…

            According to that site:

            “Two hours ago Newsnight discovered that Vicky Pryce – Chris Huhne’s now estranged wife – was due to address a seminar at the LSE on the evening of 12 March 2003. That’s the date in contention in the Chris Huhne speeding mystery.”

            So, “Newsnight discovered” = “We read it on Guido’s blog!”

            Vicky (if it was she) was no doubt under immense psychological pressure from Huhne to say nothing.

            Especially if the bounder filled in her name and sent off her licence without telling her. (Which is what I believe happened)

            He will go inside, she will get a caution (at most).

            Huhne was the registered keeper of the car. Therefore the notice of the speeding offence would have been addressed to him. He filled out the form, naming his wife as driver to take the points and the first she’d have known would have been the request for her license so it could be endorsed.

            By then it was too late for her to complain without wrecking both of their lives. So she kept quiet… until now.

      Do we know what time the speeding ticket was issued at? Seems to be the most important piece of information. If it was in the window when Vicky Pryce was going to the LSE/at the LSE/getting back from the LSE, then Mr Huhne’s position is untenable.

        Among the ironies here, Vicky Pryce will be aware that a PPE signifies only a Jacqui Smith level ability to tally up expenses receipts, and that it is more closely connected with economy-with-the-truth than real economics with its arcana of statistics.

        Ironic also that climate scientologists have never had their data-tortures audited by econometricians, even if the ecoloonomics of Stern that appeal to Huhne the Eco-Loon have been shown to be a dismal failure of discounting.

    Very soon Huhne the Eco Loon is going to have much more time on his hands. To spend having relations with his new Girlfriend and her Girlfriend.
    Sounds sweet but a shame that outside pornoland lezzers tend to look less like nymphet minOr’s and more like miners and dockers.
    Moral of the tale? Don’t pi55 off your wife if she knows where the bodies are buried.

    H/T to Charlie Sheen for being the exception to this rule.

      Nobody is disputing that she took the points… What is in dispute is whether she committed the speeding offence, or Whether he did and then forced his missus to take the points instead.

      Who was driving the car at the time of the offence?

    In 2002-2003 Christopher Murray Paul Huhne lived in London with the Pryce children and the Huhne children.

    Why would Mrs Huhne be driving through Essex on that day when she was working in central London during the day, lecturing in central London in the evening and their children were living in london?

    What is still unclear is whether the ‘aide’ “agreed” to the subterfuge – in which case the issue is one of simple conspiracy – or whether as the Mail appears to suggest, the first the ‘aide’ knew about it was that they had received some points. Even if that ‘aide’ subsequently acquiesced in the result, the keeper seems to have embarked on an extensive criminal course of conduct, which included the initial denial following receipt of the first PCN, and falsely proposing the ‘aide’ as the driver at the time, (sufficient to constitute the first attempt to pervert the course of justice) but he would subsequently have had to intercept any communications addressed to that ‘aide’ – (contrary to Section 1, RIPA 2000) and in addition to have then fraudulently purported to be that ‘aide’ in order to admit the offence.

    Under Section 1 of RIPA, interception of the postal communications is a heinous offence: up to 2 years.

    Innocent bystander says:

    Two hours ago Newsnight discovered that Vicky Pryce – Chris Huhne’s now estranged wife – was due to address a seminar at the LSE on the evening of 12 March 2003. That’s the date in contention in the Chris Huhne speeding mystery.

    And the LSE has just confirmed to me that Vicky Pryce did actually attend the event – a City Alumni seminar, starting at 6.30pm. The organiser of the event, Nat Holtham, confirmed to me that Vicky Pryce spoke that evening, and that the event would have lasted between an hour and an hour a half.

    “I remember meeting Vicky and seeing her,” he told me.

    “I had been pleased to discover that one of our alumni held such an eminent position in government.”

    In itself, this fact proves nothing, but it makes it pretty unlikely that Vicky Pryce could have been driving in Essex beween 6pm and 8pm that evening.

    “Incorrect”. An interesting use of the word in the circumstances. Groundless. Untrue. Fantasy. Those I could comprehend, but “incorrect”?

    Maybe he did not “ask” but “told” or “begged” ?
