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…
