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…

    This is a fabulously entertaining time in politics. Edwards facing prison, Labour in civil war, and Huhne in deep shit. Pass the popcorn and coke, it’s gonna be a laugh.

          David Laws Lib Dem fiddler says:

          it is about getting more tax from people under a green banner. 20% of your energy bill is taken by the government for its obligation on the climate. THE GOVERNMENT cowardly hides behind energy companies to let them take the blame. This means we are subsidising the useless building of wind farms that are owned by private companies. Our hard earned tax should not be used to support private companies.

          McClegg is crowing about his success about bringing changes to the NHS reforms, he seems to forget his main failure of lying and going back on what he says. He gave total support for the original plan and, true to form, has gone back on what he said. He has a warped sense of success- good double crosser perhaps? If he wants to save money start with his office of DPM. 3£70,000 spent on SPADS so he can go home early each day and do half a day on a Friday. He is a complete waste of space and a man clearly not up to the job. No idea of how people are affected by he cuts.

      After closing time, the pair and the second man went back to Mr Bridgen’s flat in Westminster to discuss politics. It was there that the alleged groping incident happened.
      The woman claims that the former Royal Marines officer touched her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt shortly after they arrived at the property.
      A key witness in the case is a blind civil servant who went back to the flat with the pair. Sources said he was with them at all times.

After another 18 months, if you are lucky, you will get a questionnaire which asks you whether you were wearing suitable safety apparatus when applying. You send that back completed. Then it goes to committee where, after several meetings over another twelve months, they will decline the proposition on the grounds that all that clicking might well result in serious wrist injury.

        This ignores the basic fact that many of the posters, especially the males, have built up a total immunity to wrist strain since quite an early age. The centre for the Health and Safety section dealing with this area happens to be situated at Jodrell Bank.

      If Hannan had proper balls he’d resign from the Cons.

      He’s a tosser enjoying the limelight, but is worth very little.

    David Cameron says:

    Everybody, please settle down and be calm. It is only fair that the poor and disabled accept responsibility for the economic mess we find ourselves in as a great country, rich with tradition and selflessness.

    The poor and disabled are a burden to us as a government as we promise to endeavour to eliminate them all, as I have personally, in our efforts to rebuild a great and selfless nation.

    Somebody asked me the other day just how are the rich affected by all the economic turmoil. My quick answer was, they’re not.

    Hey Lads and Ladies, The PM (Our Dave) has penned a piece for the Guardian on Forigen aid and defends it, Now as we all have to take part in the big society, I recomend us sharing our views and letting the PM know what we think of him throwing OUR money away

    All the fuss over some guy putting his dick somewhere else instead of inside his wife. What a trite world we live in. Does it really matter where any man puts his dick as long as it involves consent and is not a child?

    A small contingent of Bullwimmin was kettled for 12 hours on yesterday’s Slutwalk. Police have now lifted the kettle and returned placards – neatly relabelled ‘Fishmarch’ for reasons of olfactory accuracy.

    Good morning. If you ever manage to get down here, the probability is that you will be considerably older than when you first clicked on the page.

    Since then:
    * The national debt has gone up by another trillion pounds.
    * Greece has defaulted. It now uses the diram, having joined the African Union.
    * The pound has sunk to 5 Euros. Only Ryan Giggs can afford to go abroad but then only as far as Calais.
    * Chris Huhne has collected a thousand more speeding fines but craftily changed his name by deed poll to Gatso resulting in all the fines and points being sent to the manufacturer.
    * Gordon Brown managed to get an international post as head of OPEC. The result is that petrol prices have fallen to under 10p a litre which has sparked off an economic boom – in China.
    * At the 2015 general election, the Labour party popular vote shrunk to 789 votes. Two hundred of these were cast by their new leader, Edward Balls. It was enough however, under the new voting system, for him to become Prime Minister.

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
