    Chamber maid? Perhaps the 22ish year old journalist (who is now ~32).

    Just character assassination. Attack him over what he’s done, not what you wish he’d done.

    What a huhne says:

    She went to the bedroom and a naked man rushed from the bathroom to the bedroom. She apologized, the law enforcement official said, and tried to leave.

    But according to the official, the man chased her, grabbed her and shut the door, locking it. He then pulled her toward the bedroom, the official said, and tried to attack her there.

    He dragged her to the bathroom, the official added, and forced her to perform oral sex. The police said the woman eventually escaped from the suite and reported the attack to other hotel personnel, who called 911.

    Well if his ministerial career crashes he can always go back to being a second rate graudian journalist and know that sallyallley (according to her twitters) really rather likes him – guess that says everything.

    I’ve a feeling this woman’s life is about to be ruined as Kahn and his lawyers twist events and make him the victim and she the culprit.

    Her allegations are costing some very rich and powerful people a lot of money. Unless she also has a top law team then she is toast

    Paul-Huhne says:

    Christopher Paul-Huhne was born in affluent west London to a Labour-supporting actress and Tory businessman.

    The ‘Paul’ was dropped some time between Westminster School and Oxford University where he studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics, grew his hair, wore a beret, befriended radical Marxists and spoke of one day becoming Labour Prime Minister – indeed, he dismissed Liberals as ‘intense, grey-looking people unlikely to be hampered by any formulated policies’.

    Even as a student, his principles seemed a little, well, flexible.
    He helped organise a university sit-in and was photographed wielding a park bench as his Marxist pals battered their way into a university building. But he was one of the few students able to afford his own car – a London black cab that he could drive in bus lanes (an early flirtation with bending traffic rules, perhaps?).

    Essex-based Tory peer Lord Hanningfield is due to go on trial accused of fiddling his House of Lords expenses.

    The 70-year-old faces six charges of false accounting.

    It is alleged that between March 2006 and May 2009 he submitted claim forms to the House of Lords which he knew were false.

    The charges are said to relate to overnight allowances for accommodation in London when records allegedly showed he was driven to his home near Chelmsford, Essex.

    The trial is due to take place at Chelmsford Crown Court.

    Lord Hanningfield was charged – under his name Paul White – in February last year

    Quim says:

    The BBC are giving this story legs. It currently appears on the BBC news page half way down under politics, advertised as MP makes Huhne complaint. Why can’t they just leave the man alone, it’s clearly something from a long time ago when he had no hope of ever being a minister.

  39. 39
    ichabod says:

    Isn’t Nick Robinson the worst BBC chief political editor in memory; he so often barks up the wrong tree that it’s embarrassing. His attempt to change the emphasis on the Huhne scandal this morning ( ‘Today’ naturally) was so inept. Nick, a serious criminal offence may have been committed by a man who is now a cabinet minister; it is not a political issue ( ie his LibDem rivals plotting against him, or an ex-wife hoping to become more prominent in party politics–a bit of a slur that Nick), it is a law and order issue—and if you can’t see that Mr R. then really you are in the wrong job.

    Basically, then, there is no news concerning Huhne and we are trying to keep the pot boiling before everybody loses interest.

    Mind you, I think he did it, because he’s the kind of chap who would. He’s a Greenie, so he believes that the end justifies the means. Any amount of lying is permissible in the service of Mother Gaia, or Mr Christopher Huhne.

Just like the forces of all the other dictators and tyrants (Quaddaffi, Assad, Mubarak, Yemeni President, Bahreni King) in the Arab lands surrounding them – shoot the Fred Flintstones and Barney Rubbles!

    Moley says:

    In Politics, like comedy, timing is everything.

    It was an act of crass stupidity for Cameron, (The Liberal cuckoo firmly entrenched in the Conservative nest), to choose this weekend to come out in clear and fervent support for Huhne and his lunatic policies.

    If Her Majesty’s Opposition can now do its job, defend the jobs of the present and future workers it purports to represent, and ensure that Parliament properly debates the Conservatives determined attempt to commit economic hara kiri, they will do the country and themselves a huge service.

    The putative failures of judgement regarding Forestry privatisation and NHS reform are totally dwarfed by Cameron’s own personal failure. The leader has shown by example that making a complete cock up requires a degree of skill and determination that is quite beyond the abilities of his Ministers.

    Logan says:

    Cabinet ministers are always going to be attacked and have accusations of all sorts of wrong-doing hurled at them. If any Prime Minister of any party sacked every minister upon the mere accusation or inference of wrong-doing, then there would be no ministers left.

    IF it becomes established as a fact that Huhne conspired to pervert the cuase of justice by pressuring another person to lie and accept penalty points which rightly should have gone to Huhne, then his position as a Minister, and indeed as an MP (in my opinion) would be entirely untenable.

    At the moment these are merely allegations with a large degree of supporting evidence which should be tested in court.

    IF Huhne is charged with a crime, then he should stand down. IF he is then proven not guilty, then he may, unfortunately, be available to be reinstated. IF he is found guilty, then he should go to prison.

    Hell hath no fury like a scorned woman. If the allegations are found to be correct, his career is finished. I will not lament his departure. Another puffed-up politician promoted way beyond his nominal pay grade. Despite our reputation to the contrary, the public is broadly accepting of marital infidelities. Perverting the course of justice is a wholly different matter. It is the cornerstone of our legal system and must be upheld without fear or favour. Those who seek to support his position by playing down the nature of this alleged offence are as complicit as the individual himself.

    Frankly Huhne knows as much about energy as I do about the politics and economics of outer Mongolia.

    He is, actually WORSE than useless, because is intellectual laziness and overweening vanity force him to consider that its not actually his job to find out, either.

    Frankly we would have a better energy picture, and a lower carbon one, if politicians simply taxed carbon and washed their hands of interfering in it beyond that. And simply let the Market and the engineers employed by commercial companies get on and do what they do est. Calculate the cheapest and most efficient way of supplying it.

    Socialism has murdered 150 million human beings pride says:

    To slime as high as he has in the IMF/french politics he must have a high degree of animal cunning. Even if the story about the 22 year old is true (and once someone is charged all sorts of stories emerged from the woodwork. If Guido hisself were charged in similar fashion probably some woman would contact the press to say he tried to grope her tits back at Uni–the press would be trying hard to find something if the story was high-profile enough) it seems very unlikely that this man would run naked to fling himself on the maid and think he could get away with it, French egotist or not.

    @sockpuppet – that’s kinda fair enough. The esteem with which the French revere their Republic is truly staggering so their senior statesmen, and he was their chancellor, take on a veneration the Brits reserve for their royal family.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
