Farage Twists the Knife
Senior LibDems Run From Huhne

Day 10: Another ravaging for Huhne in the papers. Nigel Farage reckons that Chris Huhne was in Essex the night of the speeding offence, as he was usually on the same flight from Strasbourg to Stansted airport and he travelled on March 12, 2003. Meanwhile Vicky Pryce was dining forty miles away in London.

The Mail  reports that senior LibDems colluded in a cover up, and turned a blind eye to Huhne pulling the ticket stunt on more than one occasion. They also claim Vicky Pryce sought the advice of and friend and judge in 2003. The Telegraph picked up in Guido’s non-denial denial speculation from yesterday. A senior LibDem source twisted the knife last night:

“There is blood in the water and the sharks are circling. So far Huhne has failed to deny the allegations in full, he has only said that the allegations are incorrect. The story just does not stack up,”

Huhne was abandoned in the House yesterday. Colleagues notably failed to rally around him for his big climate announcement. He sat and faced the mockery and  and jokes from Labour alone. #HuhneTunes at the weekend was the public laughing, and now Huhne’s fellow MPs are mocking him. Guido has said it before and will say it again – can a cabinet minister survive when he has become a national joke and synonymous with lying? Methinks not…

            Guido, McClegg has survived and so has Laws. Huhne is just another lying Lie Dem. Do not forget Ashdown and Co. was firmly in support of thieving Laws.

            Cameron isn’t far behind with his promise not to use the UK taxpayers money for bail outs. £4.2 billion promised to Portugal yesterday. His sums do not add up:
            £11.2 billion overseas aid
            £4.2 billion to Portugal
            £7billion to Ireland
            £9.2 billion in European contributions, ONS thinks it is much higher (£17 upper end speculation) when the UK had a £42 billion trade deficit last year.
            Committed to another war- Libya

            Yet he thinks we need to make cuts in public services and armed forces? When he is splashing the cash around the world- that we do not have- why so many cut backs? Surely the bond markets can see the sums do not add up.

      The paperwork from 2003 was last night still buried in ticketing office archives but police are confident of finding it.
      A source said last night: “Once details are retrieved they will prove beyond reasonable doubt who is telling the truth.”
      The original documents – retained by Her Majesty’s Court Service – will prove crucial because Essex police’s own computer records about the offence were deleted.

        Sounds cut and dried but I fear the Sun is exaggerating.

        On the one hand they say VP is ‘fully cooperating’, on the other that the Police will not open an investigation until their enquiries show an offence has been committed.

        If VP had ‘spilled the beans’, the Police would already have enough evidence to warrant an investigation.

        Must still be a fair chance of no prosecution on grounds of insufficient evidence – especially as the Police are unlikely to take a chance, if there is a shadow of doubt.

        Either way, Huhne is already damaged goods (and all the more reason that VP would have no interest in compromising herself by going further, were the allegations true).

      She’s suggesting he used her details without telling her, and possibly pressurised her to keep quiet.

      Plus, she may be hoping the allegations will ruin his career but not be pursued by the police. She could well be right.

    “can a cabinet minister survive when he has become a national joke and synonymous with lying?”

    Gordon Brown shamelessly managed it – he’d have clung on to PM until he was forced out of office by the electorate.

    Even then, he still tried to stay. Ironic really, seeing as he’s never in the HoC these days.

    do any witnesses who saw vicky price at the LSE dinner know how much she knocked back? perhaps if she was drinking she could not have been driving or should not have been driving.

    perhaps she could claim that she was so drunk that huhne convinced her she had actually been driving because she could not remember anything of that evening…….

    The most damaging aspect of this affair is the inevitable failure of Ministers and MPs to separate support for Huhne as a Minister from the support of his policies.

    His policies will trash any prospect of growth and wreck the deficit reduction plans.

    The deficit reduction plans are already in serious danger due to above forecast inflation and unforeseen bail-out demands from the EU.

    The OBR now needs to put into its calculations the anticipated future cost of EU bail-outs.

    David Cameron’s communications director is embroiled in a tax fraud investigation, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

    Craig Oliver and his wife, the BBC presenter Joanna Gosling, set up a company to reduce tax for the earnings from her career in 2003.

    The tax adviser who managed the scheme is now under criminal investigation. His clients have been warned that their tax returns may not be legal.

    What a load of bollocks and spit and pizzle, who cares if Huhne did or did not, and how many other people do this, share the points. The points system is very heavy in punishment, I live in the country in Suffolk, not having a car is the same as houes arrest or tagging. The points system works on going above the speed limit once a year over a three year period, and lets be honest every judge, policeman, journalist, head master, nurse, etc etc goes over a speed limit 30 times a day, so the points system is a lottery and the punishment does not fit the crime. I would encourage anyone to share points with wives and friends, the systems shit and unfair, and who really cares about Huhne, we all know this is a political stitch up because lots of people dont like the egotistical tit.
    Thankyou

A ‘senior Conservative party official’ passes judgement on Theresa May:

“She is boring. A technocrat. She is Philip Hammond with a fanny. Not interesting, but rendered interesting by circumstance. And that circumstance is that she is a woman. And in an age when the Prime Minister gets it in the neck for refusing to wear a fucking T-shirt that says he is a feminist, that is a rocket boost right underneath you.”

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
