Huhne Coppers Meet With Prosecutors

PA is suggesting that Essex Police had a face to face meeting on Friday with the CPS to discuss Chris Huhne’s speeding points. The inquiry is on going, but the police must be confident enough that they have a case if they are actively seeking face time the prosecutors…

Huhne was out of the country last week, he might wish he’d stayed there…

      Senior moment. Read that as Huhne Coopers and wondered how Huhne speeding could be connected with Hampstead Heath parliamentary dogging encounters.

          How long does it take to interview two people and locate documentary evidence?? Why hasn’t McClegg intervened and suspended or sacked Huhne? Why hasn’t McClegg sacked laws?? Why hasn’t McClegg sacked Campbell? When is McClegg going to clean up politics???

          McClegg the life story: How he failed in so many of his tasks while taking money from the taxpayer. A man who had it all and gave nothing in return.

      And so you should be confused. Guido has shown again that noone can touch him for commenting on things about which he knows nothing (he should be in the Commons). The plods are now so bound by bureaucracy that they will habitually meet the CPS to discuss dropping cases as well as pursuing them. It is known as arse covering (not to be confused with the odd habits of so many of our representatives).

        Bart – Certainly in THIS case plod would be mad not to pass the buck to the CPS. It seems obvious that IF the Mrs is admitting her guilt Huhne is late (as in the late Ford Prefect). But as she has probably realised she too will be for the big house she is probably saying she menat the other one; or she can’t remember.

        By then, it really is for the CPS not plod to decide!

        Both of you are talking shite, procedures dictate that the CPS will require to be updated on the progress of any enquiry into a minister of the Crown irrespective of whether there is a likelihood of prosecution or the strength of the case. In other words even if their enquiries resulted in little or no evidence such meetings would still take place as the CPS must be kept in the loop throughout the investigation.
        No inference should be drawn from this.

        As are so many. Of course, none can touch our own dear Boris. Most philanderers play away from home. Boris plays in the homes of whichever of his friends turns a blind eye. No wonder it was so easy to come up with the name for Boris’ Bikes. My man is just off to check that the security services are keeping a tight leash on Natalie Rowe.

      That will be the CPS run by Keir Starmer, so named by his parents to ensure he is steeped in ideological left wing crap. Unbiased, non partisan – I hope he replies here and says he isn’t.

    The CPS. Why haven’t they been abolished? If the Bill think they’ve got a case, they should prosecute, not defer to a bunch of PC non-jobbers.

      Strap that rectum in, this dildo's massive Chrissy boy says:

      Nope, think you may have the wrong end of the stick. the Crown Prosecution Service has to decide whether there’s a case viable to go to court and then they prosecute – the polis just collect the evidence and arrest the mudda fooker.

        No, you completely missed my point.

        The CPS are the fifth leg on the dog. There’s no need for them whatsoever. If the police have a case, they should prosecute, not hand all the paperwork over to some civil servant grunts who ponder the rights and wrongs of the prosecution case.

          Its an interesting one this ! Not some complicated commercial fraud case, an offense the average punter can understand and has an opinion on, where one of the people involved has owned up and where there is rumoured to be lots of evidence corroborating her story.
          So, some bloke in the CPS is thinking, hang on, the boss might be giving me a nod & a wink to get this politico off, but what happens if the press find out and I end up getting a Shoesmithing . Everyone and his dog is going to think its a fix and my name is going to be sh1t, nah, they can have a word with the judge to sort it out for them.

      In fact it’s CPS policy to prosecute if they think they can make a case, even if the police have evidence that the suspect is innocent. Then it all comes down to whether the CPS can keep the vindicating evidence out of court, so they can secure a conviction. It’s the nature of the adversarial system and Labour’s legacy. It’s twisted, and we have to pay for it.

      The police have no say in whether someone is charged or not.

          Maybe Labour meddled with it and made it worse. That wouldn’t be a surprise.

          • They certainly did. I believe it was a response to the Daily Mail, saying that far too many people were getting away without being charged, so they brought in the policy of always charging, even where the suspect was clearly innocent.

            At the same time they also introduced means testing for legal representation, so if you can’t prove that your income in £10K in legal fees. That’s for the least serious allegations, obviously more serious ones would cost many times that. They also removed the right to trial by jury.

            At the same time they also introduced means testing for legal representation, so if you can’t prove that your income is less than £15K, you have to represent yourself, unless you can pay more than £10K in legal fees. That’s for the least serious allegations, obviously more serious ones would cost many times that. They also removed the right to trial by jury.

Tony and Hain are there to add good weather ambience but the latter has to be restrained from damaging the pitch. Bring your own refreshments as Prezza is manning the hot dog stand. Angela Eagle and sister provide the laughs at half time. All the other old hands are there, but blindfolded, to give them greater vision than they had in their previous jobs. Bank of England printing presses are brought on site and run at full pelt, just to provide the ambiance. The whole lot ends when the ink canisters spontaneously combust and those who are not drowned are consumed by the flames… (Next week …)

    Police probing allegations that Cabinet minister Chris Huhne tried to dodge punishment for speeding have received advice from prosecutors, it has been revealed.

    A spokesman said: “We have met the police and given them some advice, to meet with Guido Fawkes and obtain his evidence.The case is ongoing. They have not delivered an evidence file.We are desperate to obtain a conviction in this case”

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
