“Credible” Chance Huhne Will Be Prosecuted

Essex Police have handed over preliminary papers concerning Chris Huhne to the CPS. There was a bit of confusion, and they deny the initial reports that it was the full file, but say they are “considering it”.  Presumably they are waiting for the document Vicky Pryce signed saying she would back up the accusations in court. Intriguingly BBC sources suggest there is “a credible chance” he will be prosecuted. Broom broom!

          • David Laws Lib Dem fiddler says:

            If this man had any sense of public duty or self respect he would resign. Once more he lacks the emotional intelligence to realise that his personal failings concerning his marriage are detrimental to the office he holds. Irrespective of guilt he should resign. If MCClegg was a leader he would have encouraged his resignation or sacked him. McClegg has the responsibility for political reform and he claimed he was going to clean up politics. If he is not up to the job then he should resign.

            The Lie Dems got less of the vote and fewer MPs at the last election, if there was no possibility of a coalition McClegg would have gone by now. He has given up policies and promises in exchange for the power of government. Today we see, once again, the lack of calibre, back bone and emotional intelligence these people have and above everything else do not put the national interest first. Time for a radical change in accountability to the public.

          David Laws Lib Dem fiddler says:

          They will lose every seat at the next election with McClegg lying and spinning for them. Europe will be he way forward for them, individually that is.

    So we have Mps from all 3 parties in the shit today.

    The Tory: Alledged sexual assualt ( against a woman)

    The Lib Dem: Perverting the course of justice

    The Labour party: Found out while thier union workers were risking thier lives trying to save people after 7/7 there “whiter that white ” politicons were busy plotting and arguing “when is it my turn”.

    So remeber Union workers when they say they have your best intrests at heart , ask yourself this:

    “What was Ed Balls, Ed Miliband and Gordon Brown doing when London suffered its worst terrorist attack in decades?”

          Oi! Not everyone in Donny drinks Special Brew. Though I did see someone having a nice snooze on the pavement last night.

          Come on Billy, have a heart – as if the most brutal act of domestic terrorism should get in the way of some subterfuge. Blair did very well that day and it’s simply unreasonable to expect the 2nd most powerful man in the country should give a shit about death, carnage, destruction, threat, pain, shock and fear. Be sensible!!

        I Remember You Hoo says:

        Huhne is doing an important job.
        Wrecking the economy and driving millions into fuel poverty is very important, not desirable but important nonetheless, so that much is true.
        Now when the poor are poverty stricken and the middle class become poor as a result of Huhne’s ‘important work’ I wonder how those affected will reward Hunhe and his supporters?

    3. The IMF don’t approve of George Osborne’s economic policies.
    4. Gordon Brown is a man of integrity and an economic genius.

      Dennis, it may have escaped your notice, but there is a time-gap of a couple of decades between Hillsborough and ‘the IDS regime’.

      On a similar basis, my life has been blighted and traumatised by Union avarice in the 1970s and early ’80s. What are you going to do about that?

        My life was blighted and traumatised by having to get two trains and a bus to school across London and having to endure endless strikes and works-to-rule back in the sixties. That’s why I’ve never voted Labour and never will.

      Denis, my life has been blighted by the memory of Union greed in the ’70s and early ’80s, and by the after-effects of Socialist governments running out of other peoples’ money. What are you going to do about that?

    From now on say that they are perfectly normal memos from sensible warm hearted politicians who were planning an orderly transfer of Brown to No. 10. There was no animosity between Brown and Blair. It was just creative tension and friendly rivalry.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
