Justice Delayed is Justice Denied
CPS Must Bring Huhne Investigation to Speedy End

The Mail on Sunday has gone to the trouble of recreating the journey that Vicky Pryce would have had to have undertaken to have got the speeding ticket that she alleged Chris Huhne actually deserved. It was back in May that this blog revealed that Vicky Pryce was speaking at an event at the LSE on the night in question. Tracing the route she would have had to have driven it seems it is nigh on impossible for her to have done the journey in the time required. 

The police have been investigating this case for six months, the CPS has been avoiding taking the case to Court for three months. It is a fundamental tenet of our justice system that all are equal before the law. The CPS appear to be nervous about prosecuting this case because Huhne is a Cabinet Minister. Justice delayed is justice denied and it is time the evidence was tested in Court.

        Has someone bunged someone in the Justice System that’s normally the way to achieve a delay. This type of behaviour is well known amongst Limp-Dumb MP’s.

          Mmmmm says:

          Have police/CPS looked at the Congestion Zone records? Ms Pryce must have registered a vehicle for the day to park close the the dinner venue.

          Was this the same registration, or different to the vehicle caught in the speed trap?

            That would be too easy Mmmmm! I didn’t think anyone was above the law, and that everyone is treated equally.
            Baroness Uddin is another ‘special’ case I suppose.
            Makes my blood boil.

          • CYNICAL OLD MAN says:

            It seems the CPS have always been reluctant to prosecute politicians. One example is the expenses scandal. Only a few “small fry” were prosecuted when the greater offenders were allowed to carry on troughing. Jacquie Smith and Uddin were cases where there was prima facie evidence of fraud being committed but the CPS lived up to their name of the “Criminal Protection Service” and turned a blind eye to court action.

            The Cash For Honours scandal also produced enough evidence for a criminal prosecution, even the investigating officers were convinced, but once again, the CPS declined to bring charges.

            But, that’s always been the way of the CPS, probably because the best lawyers work for themselves and the Crown has to accept what’s left.

      The Evidence M'Lud says:

      There are 3 scenarios. Remembring that the car was registered to the Huhne.

      1) The car was parked in Stanstead while Huhne was out of the country. Thus Vicky was not the driver. That’s the easy one.

      2)Vicky picked the Huhne up and drove them home.

      3)Vicky drove to the airport and the Huhne drove home.

      The only way that Huhne will stand trial is if the number 1 is the case. Parking records, Huhne’s MEP expenses (though they may be too lax), ANP records, traffic master records, congestion charge records, Vicky’s fellow lecturers’ statements should be able to prove that she never left London and the Huhne mobile was parked up at Stanstead that night.

      • 462

        Could also ask about mobile phone registrations that evening. They do in murder investigations. Of course, Pryce’s phone doesn’t prove where Pryce was, but it is persuasive. Stanstead car parks are bristling with cameras. Not sure how long they keep the images for but if the car was there, something will have seen it.

          David Laws Lib Dem fiddler says:

          At least Huhne was referred to the police for investigation even if the failed CPS cannot make a decision. David Laws case did not manage to be referred to the police to be investigated, some say because he is wanted back in cabinet.

          Then there was the little matter of 302 MPs who were over paid or fiddled their expenses. I suspect a large number were guilty of false accounting.

    Also bear in mind that some of those involved in the riots have had thier day in court and the 3 cricketers involved in a more complicated have had thier day in court, this case in a open and shut case, who was driving Hunt or someone else? Failure to disclose the identity of person in charge is a crime i think but the more important one is perveting the course of justice, this man is a minister of the crown, if they can be above the law then why are they shocked when the ferel youth go looting?

          The Boss of the CPs is ultimately a policical appointment, politicians certainly have the final say in his appointment. Therefore do not blame him for the delay, it is political and other influences being imposed on him that is the cause of the delay in bringing charges against my good friend Chris Huhne. In any case Chris is entirely innocent of these trumped up charges. Boaz.

            Let’s just say Ronald Kray and I had an understanding, if you will; he helped me keep my private life private, for a nominal consideration of course, and I helped him keep his private life private, owing to the fact that I was well-connected enough to do so, as he was not the only one in possession of secrets, shall we say. An at-that-time recent PM had been cuckolded 30-some years before and his daughter wasn’t his, she was mine, which made a lifestyle like mine possible lest it emerge that an AC-DC MP had something he was holding over the head of the PM. A very cosy relationship all around the mulberry bush, don’t you know.

    So, in summary, M’Lud…

    The Mail on Sunday, the unimpeachable institution with no possible axe to grind and an impeccable credential as an ominiscient authority in forensic science, deems it ‘nigh on impossible’ that the bastard is not guilty.

    Furthermore, the court of public opinion, as typified in the kangaroo enclosure at the London Zoo, has determined, by overwhelming majority (nigh on unanimous), that the bastard is guilty. There have been calls for his summary execution as it is clear that trial is unnecessary.

    Never before, M’Lud, has a stronger case for bypassing decent legal procedure been placed before the bench.

    Personally, I would prefer to see that any person punished by the state is first found to be guilty without any possible doubt.

      What most of are asking is not that he be found guilty but that he should face trial – as indeed would we in similar circumstances but without this inordinate delay.

      In my case, I would suggest that he could be hung first (to save time) and then his guilt be decided upon at some convenient later date. The miscarriage of justice is much more likely to be against us than him.

    In the same week that a court recorder has been jailed for wiping licences clean – taking the points off them – it is becoming clear that a criminal offence may have been commissioned by the obfuscation and seeming indecision of the authorities.

    Some Geezer wot's seen the law be an ass too often says:

    The CPS has to contend with the question of whether her evidence can be believed, in the light of subsequent events. Huhne is fortunate in who his accuser is.

    Defendant’s Brief: “I put it to you, Ms. Pryce, you are a spiteful woman looking to besmirch the reputation of one of our highest-ranking public officials to pay off personal scores!”

    Crown Prosecutor: “Objection, m’Lud!”

    Defendant’s Brief: “Goes to the question of whether she has a motive to slant her evidence, m’Lud.”

    Judge: “I will allow this line of enquiry, provided it goes no further than to impeach the witness’s evidence and does not veer into personal invective against the witness herself. Rephrase, counselor…”

    And you just know Huhne’s brief will bring up Mandy Rice-Davies’ deathless observation of what witnesses’ evidence will be in a given situation: “Well, [Ms. Pryce] WOULD say that, wouldn’t she?”, in summation.

    The CPS’s case is not a winner, even if they somehow score a goal at the death and eke out a conviction against Huhne; it makes them look stupid for being party to a domestic brouhaha, and only bringing a case for fear of being thought lapdogs to the political class.

      Well he needs to pull his finger out. What’s he waiting for?

      I’ve had a brainwave. Farage needs funds. So UKIP should sell “freedom shares”. In the event of a UKIP victory, we stop being fleeced to the tune of £13.3 billion each year by the EU, and each “freedom share” you bought from UKIP pays a dividend based on the money Britain doesn’t give the EU in our first year of independence. Plus, you get your original investment back.

      So, 500,000 freedom shares are sold at (let’s say) £30 each, raising £15m for UKIP, which uses the money to win the election, defeating the liblabcon scum. We leave the EU, and after one year the share owners get their money back plus £13.3billion (minus £15m) divided by 500,000 .. £26,600 each. I think. Per share.

      The shares-issue alone would be great publicity for UKIP.

In any event the money will be frozen, and the cost of defending the suit will become prohibitive, thus guaranteeing that a settlement will be reached which will return tuppence in the pound to the original investors. (OK, maybe not that small an amount, but it’ll surely feel that way.) In this way, whatever solid good ideological points UKIP may have, they will be buried in the public’s mind beneath the perception that the party were just a bunch of sharpies who railed about how The Perfidious Continentals Were Out to Carve Us Up whilst they were doing the same to their own people. UKIP may wish to take a kip on this one.

        Many of them are going to end up without heat for winter and possibly food.

        Local Councils in Gr e e c e are making legal advice available free for anyone threatened in this way by central government and are also coordinating vigilantes to go out and protect households from energy officials trying to cut off their supplies.

    if you think the CPS are bad the Electoral Commisions are worse – Chris Huhnes agent is owed over 10k and losing many pounds a year on interest.

    Eastleigh lib dem councillors wont pay the money owed to the agent as they say its all been spent on Chris Huhnes general election spend which the Electoral Comission have investigated with a Blind eye regardless of the information they have been supplied

    Eastleigh Lib councillors are recorded as saying ask huhne for the money
    spent on his campaign, we wont pay it or take out a loan to repay the money,
    its only money spent on a General Election which will set a standard for future
    General elections for wealthy people to buy their Parliamentary seats.

    Eastleigh Lib dems accounts have not had a robust audit by the Electoral Commision and the Electoral Commission have failed to answer written questions, even with the Lib dem accounts supplied to them by former lib dem supporters.

    The Electoral Commission found Chris Huhne should not have declared 5k as national spend but money spent on his own campaign, funny Huhnes agent
    says she spent about £300 under the limit so that must put Huhnes election spend over the legal amount if the Lib dem accounts supplied to the Electoral commision are correct.

    its interesting to note that Huhnes election spend included aged leaflets and target mail at 0.001p each, that stamps have been donated as a gift in kind without giving the quantity of the stamps declared, thats a great precedent for future campaign funds.

    The auditors of the lib dem accounts are known and have not been spoken to by the electoral commision,

    People have been calling Buff Huhne here for a long time, Now we have Buff Huhnes defence for the Electoral Commisions the next time a PPC finds an agent with 10k+ to lend them for their election spend interest free which hasnt been repaid with in two years

    The journey is difficult but not impossible …but I’ve been thinking about this and the thing is. If she drove to the LSE from the DTI then she must have driven into the DTI in the morning and then she MUST have crossed the congestion charge zone (newly introduced the month before?). Therefore if the car was in central London on that day as Huhne claims …unless she left for the office at 5 in the Morning then there MUST be a computer record of whether or not she paid the charge or paid a fine for not paying the charge and maybe even some CC camera recognition data. Therefore … all you need to do is check Vicki Price’s bank statement and the CCharge data (and I wouldn’t be surprised if records aren’t kept back that far) and bingo …?

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
