    Sir William says:

    My defence, sir, is that I am a politician and, as such, have no real identity. Therefore, one false identity is as true as any other in my case.

  26. 26
    Frederick Gideon Threepwood says:

    A word of advice to Guido. Make sure the court knows who you are. You look far too much like a cross between Bob Neill and a Radio 1 DJ. This could lead to a nasty mix up if there is a Savile type case scheduled.

  51. 51
    Where are Tony Blair's expenses says:

    What about that tosser Clegg saying he wanted back in the cabinet. Anyone who looked at the initial charge had to realise they were both guilty.

    I have no sympathy for her, she was quite happy to take the points when she was part of a ” political power couple ”

    She only got upset when she realised she had been dumped for a bi-sexual

    Send them both down

  52. 52
    Jeffrey Bernard says:

    I would just like to be the 7,332,201st person to say that the hoon (shome mishtake shurely) was guilty all along. I told you so …

    They fear the hare says:

    Now I’m definitely confused ! 1) Politicians always lie 2) politicians act in their own selfish best interest, so if he says he’s guilty, he must be innocent, but then he violates rule 2

  64. 64
    Red Egg Millitit..... says:

    He was telling porky pies when he protested his innocence? omg………. a Lib Dem is not honest??


  65. 65
    Another Headshrinker says:

    Huhne the lying Hunt is paid from the public purse, therefore it is in the public interest that what he uses this public money for is reported on with utmost transparency! M’lud!
    I am sure a proper QC could put that in to legalese and get the reporting lifted!

  66. 66
    Another Engineer says:

    What a Huhne. Wasted everyone’s time for months and months and then pleads guilty at the end.

    The courts said they were going to take a dim view of that kind of nonsense – lets hope they do.

    He has seriously undermined the workings of the coalition Government . Indeed he was one of the main architects of the Coalition agreement .

    LIfe imprisonment !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  73. 73
    All politicians are liars says:

  76. 76
    FibDem Action Rebuke Team says:

    I have instructed the reporters that it was only a trivial speeding thingy.

    As an Honorable MP, he should be severely punished by having his expense allowances increased to pay for a chauffeur now that his license will be revoked.

    That is all, move along, nothing to see here.

  77. 77
    Is it Him or not..BBC Reporters haver on about battle scars says:

    No Richard III live revelations….both BBC & Sky have cut away to Southwark where the remains of an ex-Cabinet Minister has been discovered to give a blow by blow account of his political demise……

    Rinka Scott says:

    I think this spells the end of Parliamentary democracy.

    People just will just not accept this .

    If he had held his hands up when charged fair enough .

    No doubt there will be some crap mitigation about it being a stupid thing to do over three silly penalty points when a driving ban would never have been the end of the world.

    THe bitter irony is that he will still get his pension and money when he resigned from Government .

    There will be a by election and it will conveniently be forgotten that the cost will fall upon the poor old taxpayer.

  93. 93

    All of the bones in Huhne’s body are bent.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
