Chris Huhne’s performance last night when questioned by Andrew Rawnsley about his marriage and speeding was jaw-dropping. It confirms Guido in his opinion that Chris Huhne is a political-psychopath. It is widely and euphemistically said by cabinet colleagues that Huhne has an “incredible ability to compartmentalise his life”. Now an ability to remain cool under fire is admirable, when it is to a degree that it is so manifestly cold and calculating it raises questions.
The clinically accepted Hare psychopathy checklist applied to Huhne is revealing. Guido scored Huhne as having 17/20 pyschopathic character traits based on everything we know about him. Here is a man who told the mother of three of his children and wife of 26 years that he was having an affair and their marriage was over using the words “we have thirty minutes to kill the story“. He psychopathically hoped to enlist Vicky’s immediate help in protecting his political career from the publicity fall-out.
