    About feffing time – there can be no justification for not allowing the public to gloat at & endlessly enjoy Huhnes misfortune.

    For justice to be done it must be seen to be done as someone has just said on a previous thread.

    Is one to presume that it was felt this case was not suitable to enjoy the same levels of treatment as others.

    If it fails, can’t wait to see the hoops such as the BBC will go through to report (not) this?

    ‘A man, Mr. H, accused of…’

    why on earth are there reporting restrictions on this ?

    one of them is lying and either one or both was attempting to pervert the course of justice.

    Chris Huhne didn’t want a trainset for Christmas, cos he knew that it would have 3 points.

    But Guido, if you do this, it will increase the possibility of said person wriggling free on a technicality.

    Just asking … specifically in this case, but also generally what is the justification for a court sitting in secret?

    I wonder if all the press could make a point of asking any Liberal party leader at every opportunity whether any of their MPs are in court that week and whether there are reporting restrictions in force so they should not ask any more questions about them.

    Make it follow them everywhere they appear.

    The public will only have access to information written by accredited journalists and passed by our “independent” panel.

    Oh for gawds sake... says:

    In a case where the expectation is that the accused will wriggle free on some technicality or back-room deal, this case MUST be open and transparent to all.
    If it was any of us plebs, it would have all been done and dusted years ago, regardless of what effect being found guilty would have had on our careers or family life.
    The fact that the accused led a high profile political life should be of no concern.

      They are supposed to set the standards (being honourable etc etc) so the authorities should come down on them even more severely. But that’s not how it works, is it?

    If his ex-wife is found guilty then Hu**ne should by definition also be found guilty. Unless he can successfully argue that at the time he had been abducted by aliens and replaced by a cyborg – which is an argument that’s always on the cards really.
    So, there you have it – Hu**ne not guilty, Vicky Whatsit guilty – and the British Justice system shining like a beacon to the world.

    What is the point of becoming an MP if you cannot use the position to break the law, get more sex, pervert anything from teenagers to the course of justice, fiddle expenses and pile up favours that will result in shedloads of cash at some stage? Let’s face it, one can make more money selling the Big Issue or being a corrupt police constable than the derisory salary of Westminster Wallies.
    Huhne’s biggest failing is that his horizons are so narrow and his standards so low.

    With our wonderful Justice system letting off robbers, rapists, thieves etc, In today’s light sentencing, I’m sure said person will be granted all costs and £15000 compensation for his trouble, then he will most likely sue the Authorities for deformation of character.

    Guilty as charged your Honor.

    I have been reliably informed that the reporting restrictions are in place to protect the reputations of the Huhne legal defence team – who will be launching the ‘Chewbacca’ defence of last resort. Maybe.
