Deathbed Denunciation Means John Edwards Faces 30 Years

Vicky Pryce is nothing compared to Elisabeth Edwards in the scorned woman stakes. As Elisabeth lay dying from cancer she recorded a deathbed denunciation of her adulterous husband John Edwards, the Democratic vice-presidential running mate of John Kerry. Edwards diverted funds from his campaign to his mistress. America’s only paper worth reading, The National Inquirer, has the scoop:

…in a devastating act of ultimate revenge, a dying Elizabeth Ed­wards recorded a bombshell secret videotape for prosecutors – nailing her cheating husband John as he will stand trial on charges that could land him behind bars for 30 years.

That’s the stunning secret behind the federal indictment brought against the disgraced former presidential candi­date on June 3 -– following a two-year grand jury investigation into whether he illegally used campaign funds to cover up his affair with his then-pregnant mistress Rielle Hunter.

Serial adulterer Chris Huhne, like John Edwards, paraded his family at election time and also paid his mistress Carina Trimingham out of campaign funds when she worked on his leadership campaign. Vicky should take her lead from Elisabeth Edwards’ courage and thoroughly avenge her humiliation…

Saturday Seven Up

The week started with the IMF giving the thumbs down for Plan B, and Guido calling for Plan A+. Tuesday saw Ed Miliband gurn his way through a speech, then on Wednesday he fluffed PMQs so badly even the Mirror’s loyal Kevin Maguire despaired. Thursday saw Guido send an Indian spaceman to thank the taxman and Andrew Mitchell personally as he boasted to an aid conference about the £800 million DfID is sending India over 3 years. £800 million the government has to borrow via the deficit.

The press release of the week came from Volvo Cars UK. All-in-all it was a very bad week for Ed Balls, dissed by the IMF, mocked by Osborne, exposed by his own hand as a proven liar. Happy days…

Quote of the Day

David Miliband would have said if he had won…

“The deficit. And there is a deficit. A serious one. Which needs to be reduced… This is the biggest argument in politics, and the biggest danger for us. George Osborne says we are in denial about the deficit. Because he wants us to be. So let’s not be. It is a test… Step one is to recognise what is obvious: that we did not abolish the business cycle. We should never have claimed it. You can’t in a market economy. And public spending plans cannot depend on it. Nor can you write your own fiscal rules and then be the judge and jury for how they are calculated and when they are met.

We should have been proposing the creation of an Office of Budgetary Responsibility and we should be campaigning today for its accountability to Parliament to be strengthened. There is no point in denying those things; they are true.”

Quote of the Day

William Hague on Tony Blair…

“To the political law that you can’t fool all of the people all of the time he added Blair’s law – that you can make a very serious attempt at it.”
