Huhne Should Be Sacked for Lying and Briefing Against May

So Chris Huhne’s fingerprints were on the story he gave to the Guardian’s Patrick Wintour which ran on Friday evening. Huhne has just coughed to the BBC’s Politics Show to being the source of the information that May’s cat speech reference was plagiarised from a speech UKIP’s Nigel Farage gave in his own Eastleigh constituency.

Huhne is presumably the source of the anonymous quote:

“Not only has Ms May been caught out making up stories about the Human Rights Act for cheap laughs, she has been plagiarising her clap lines from the UK Independence party.” 

It should be noted that psycho -Huhne lied on the record about this to the BBC’s Peter Henley when he claimed that his tweet was to a staff member. It was once considered a resigning matter for a Cabinet minister if he was caught lying. If a lowly SpAd was caught doing this it would be a sackable offence. Surely Cabinet collective responsibility demands Huhne goes – Guido is sure Clegg would love to give him the sack. He has been caught lying and briefing against colleagues. What does it take to get rid of Huhne?

UPDATE: Huhne said “I completely confess, I own up and I have apologised to Theresa May about drawing attention to this public matter that was on a local website.” Very big of him. It turns out he hasn’t actually spoken with May, he merely left her a voicemail.

          A judge allowed an illegal immigrant to dodge deportation because he feared separating him from his cat risked ‘serious emotional consequences’, it emerged yesterday.

          The human rights ruling, obtained by the Daily Mail, vindicates Home Secretary Theresa May over the ‘cat-gate’ row with Justice Secretary Ken Clarke at the Tory Conference.

          She claimed that the cat, Maya, was a key reason behind the decision to let the man, a Bolivian national, stay in Britain, citing it as an example of how the Human Rights Act has been badly applied by judges.

            The cat was owned jointly and was considered by the judge to prove he had a family life here.

            Anonymous, the initial judgement specifically mentioned the cat and the emotional damage the immigrant would likely sustain if deported and seperated from his feline friend. The live in lover/partner formed part of the judgement at a later appeal hearing. By the way, since when has this LibDem/Dave’s Wets government (Cleggy’s mob appearing to be the dominant partner) appealed any court decision since it’s been in power?

            You are showing your ignorance as well – judges CANNOT be sacked for their court judgements (more’s the pity).

          The illegal immigrant and thief is a ‘cat’ or catamite – the junior partner to his male bride. All the guff about Maya is a diversionary tactic. Perhaps the judge is a ‘cat’ lover himself. It would explain a lot.
