      Ashen faced, tight lipped Energy Secretary Chris Hunt, has received the vote of confidence.

      Did that Hunt Huhne bother to turn up and vote of the use and misuse of speed cameras in similar cases?

    EdMiliband says:

    As my philosophy tutor used to say to me, it depends how you define Huhnery; is it purely on a purely esoteric level or a more empiric level? The progressive majority in this country dilatilate on the fundamental dichotemy of the permutations of distations.

    I couldn’t be clearer on this point.

    hmmmm says:

    Where has the honour in this country gone?
    Doesnt he realise if get caught – it is hands up time?

    Lembit's cheeky dildo says:

    It’s uncannily accurate. His press conference was exactly the same as when his secretary gor hauled out to apologize for sending an e-mail to a kid calling him a c’unt. Priceless.

    anonymouse in the DECC skirting boards says:

    Am afraid this will boil down to a case of his word against hers and the scorned woman may well lose out, unless she has proof of her being somewhere else at the time of the offence.

    Huhne is soiled goods though.

    Is it me or does Huhne not look quite as smug a usual today?

      Essexplod says:

      Correct and my analysis of his voice shows extreme tension. That tension consitent with telling fibs but of course he could just be feeling the pressure.

    Sad-dick Khunt says:

    Chris Hunt should be in jail.

    I gave my cat her daily Felix this morning.
    I couldn’t help noticing that where it said “with Chicken”
    below it said “mit Huhn”

    I just thought I’d mention it….

    Huhne denies points allegations

    A word in your lughole says:

    I hope they take this tosser Huhne out, a chemical company in the Nth West, Inios? is going to close with the loss a thousand UK jobs because of the Co2 taxes etc and will move production abroad, what with British Gas fields and now this chemical company, Huhne the tosser is doing well in destroying the country, I suppose he will do well out of other peoples problems esp when he caused them.

      South of the M4 says:

      Ineos. Britain’s largest private chemical company and a good employer. Bought much of the old ICI assets, and a major player in many markets. Owns also most of the PVC production in the UK. The sort of company Dave should be helping expand, not close. A sad day if they off-shore everything.

    English Tutor says:

    In “Huhne has met with the DPM”, the “with” is not necessary. Please kill the stupid construction.

    The evidence M'Lud says:

    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

      Banged to rights says:

      So Mrs Huhne Aka Pryce was sat on a panel at the LSE 12th March 2003 when Mr Huhne’s car was photographed breaking the speed limit.

      Bang him up. NOW

    Jacques Derrida says:

    I had the knack of accumulating obscure and empty buzz-phrases, thus flattering lesser folk who fancied they understood me and making work for my interpreters. I looked peculiar, was ludicrously egocentric and could justify pretty much anything. Why was I never invited into Government?


  21. 34

    The spin seems to be working. Unless there is some super concrete proof, it looks like he’ll survive.

    Might be be an idea to move the cross-hairs.
    Maybe through the shoulder. Lop of an ear or something.

    Hell hath no fury like an ex-wife cheated on by her hubby with a minger called Carine.

    Terrible But True says:

    In the great semantic weasel scheme of things, I wonder what that odd way of phrasing actually means?

    At least he didn’t say ‘I did not swap positions with that relation’.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”

Rob Wilson says:

What time will dinner be ready this evening?
