A Warning Ten Years Too Late

Sunny Huhne-dal’s Sagacity

sunny-hundalSince resolving in 2010 to not waste pixels on the unpopular parts of the blogosphere, we have kept to our word for three years. Today is just too good to let it pass.

Not many supported Chris Huhne on Twitter, here is what that well known progressive tweeter Sunny Hundal had to say, from his mum’s spare bedroom in Hillingdon, during the period that we pushed the Huhne story before the police investigation bore fruit:

Despite Sunny’s support he’s down now.

The story that Huhne-dal thought wasn’t “going anywhere”, is everywhere…

There was an MP named Chris Huhne

Who suddenly altered his tune

So stop being beastly

The member for Eastleigh

Is exiting parliament soon.

Peter Huhne’s Texts to Lying Father

The court restrictions have been lifted. Rejecting Huhne’s application to have the case thrown out last week, Mr Justice Sweeney said the jury would “be free to draw adverse inference” from these texts between Chris Huhne and his son, Peter:

CH: Peter, just to say, I’m thinking of you and I love you very much. It would be great to talk to you, Dad.

PH: **** off

PH: So nice to see our entire relationship reduced to lies and pleasantries in that letter. Do you take me for an idiot? The fact you said your parents were happier as a result of their divorce was disgusting… when you were having affairs makes me sick. You are the most ghastly man I have ever known. Does it give you pleasure that you have lost most of your friends?

CH: I understand that I have really offended you but I hope that the passage of time will provide some perspective… I love you and I will be there to support you if you ever need it.

PH: You are right – the perspective involves me getting angrier with every day that goes by. You just don’t get it.

PH: We all know that you were driving and you put pressure on Mum. Accept it or face the consequences. You’ve told me that was the case. Or will this be another lie?

CH: I have no intention of sending Mum to Holloway Prison for three months. Dad

PH: Are you going to accept your responsibility or do I have to contact the police and tell them what you told me?

PH: I don’t want to speak to you, you disgust me, f**k off.

PH: You just don’t get it.

CH: Happy Christmas. I love you

PH: I hate you so f**k off.

CH: Well I’m proud and I love you, Dad.

PH: Leave me alone, you have no place in my life and no right to be proud. It’s irritating that you don’t seem to take the point. You are such an autistic piece of ****. Don’t contact me again you make me feel sick.

You don’t have to be a genius to work out how that would have gone down with a jury…

Silence From Tory Eastleigh ‘Candidate’

All quiet on the Eastleigh front for the 2010 PPC turned “Conservative Parliamentary Spokesman for Eastleigh” Maria Hutchins. Despite her seat being the top of the news agenda, she hasn’t said a word about it all day. Not even a tweet.

Could it be that Maria won’t be the candidate again…

UPDATE: A Tory spokesperson has confirmed to Guido that they have yet to officially choose a candidate.

He Lied and Lied and Lied

“Are you going to resign Mr Huhne?” Well, yes.

How We Hunted Huhne

When newly appointed Minister Chris Huhne walked out on his family and went to the gym, having just told his wife he was leaving her for another person, Guido doubts he realised the untold consequences of his actions that day in 2010. It was the Sunday Times that first reported rumours “circulating” Westminster about Huhne’s speeding points in early May 2011. The mystery person who allegedly took the points and was briefing out the story was revealed exclusively by Guido to be none other than Vicky Pryce in the following days. The Huhnt was on!

Huhne said on the record that “these allegations are simply incorrect.” His SpAd Joel Kenrick served out the BS:These allegations have been made before and have been shown to be untrue”. As the story gained traction Guido exclusively revealed where the speed camera in question was, and where Huhne’s then wife was that fateful day. Our research shredded Huhne’s initial statements. Guido’s favourite revelation was that his old number plate was: H11HNE.

As the affair dragged on, Guido was keen to keep the pressure up, as were the Mail on Sunday who recreated the scenario. And it wasn’t just digging, our #HuhneTunes hashtag turned Huhne into a laughing stock. Guido’s favourite moment of the whole affair was putting a microphone and camera in the deluded former Secretary of State’s face. He denied knowing anything about the situation. That denial looks even more absurd today…

It was never really about the speeding points, it was the conspiracy to cover-up that was going to do for him. No amount of spin from allies would save him from charges in the end. We should be able to report later today the lengths to which Huhne went in order to attempt to keep the case from getting to trial, but needless to say he was not “innocent of the charges” nor “confident a jury will agree.”

His sentencing date is yet to be set…

Quote of the Day

Janan Ganesh on Labour’s soft left

“Ms Cooper does not believe the previous Labour government was wrong to run a fiscal deficit after 15 years of economic growth. Both she and Mr Burnham think families should be entitled to tax credits for a third child. These views are not mad. They are just a bit too left-wing for Britain. For any serious party, that amounts to the same thing. The soft left is more electable than the hard left but then Mars is more habitable than Neptune: neither planet will host human life anytime soon.”
