Huhne in the Dock

Chris Huhne and Vicky Pryce are up at Southwark Crown Court at 9.30. A full trial is expected to take place in the autumn. Huhne has consistently denied the allegations, but were his ex-wife to plead guilty, he could be in extremely sticky situation. What a lovely sunny morning…

        Nah, their best strategy is to plead not guilty and hold out, it will only be a matter of time before our Politicians pass some law or issue some decree based on an EU directive on human rights which will give them the required loophole. After all thats what our Parliaments for.

          BBC online are reporting that she’s entered a plea of Not Guilty and will use the defence of “marital coercion” when she goes to trial. If so, then she’s saying she did indeed take the points on Huhne’s behalf but that she was pressured into it by her husband, a defence in law still it seems. If they accept her account then he’s F*cked I reckon.
          He hasn’t entered a plea apparently as he’s “seeking to have the case dismissed at a future hearing”. Yeah, good luck with that mate!

      By the looks of things if Huhne, Price, Hunt (if still inoffice), Osborne, Smith, and Cameron , B’Liar, Broon (the last 2 also had a sort of incestuous relations will Murdoch) is Broon due to give evidence as well, have legal proceedings it will be a time for pop corn because the courts will be so block up and the number of available briefs for other criminal offenses will be negligible.

I’d place a bet that nobody has ever been done when they paid the fine, and the point taker agreed at the time.

      Funny how BBC / guardian / indi / leveson all accept that noteithstanding cables sweeping and extremely prejudicial “at war” statement he could set aside his personal opinions whereas cable basically said he sidestep the whole issue by endorse the regulators recommendations and that somehow
