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…

        I usually find a little sympathy in me when someone hits the rocks and they sink.. In Huhne’s case i find it impossible, he Is a charm free zone and the slow death of his career was all his own making. Surely even he can see that he should have held his hands up right at the start of this small saga. By putting it off he made it worse and he was a minister ffs. What a plonker!

    Guido. Undisguised admiration for your work on this.

    If ever a point was worth making, it is that tenacity for a correct objective pays. It doesn’t always come immediately, sometimes it takes much longer. Sometimes it seems interminable.

    But you have shown here that it works. Also your analysis of what is wrong is spot on. The speeding is nothing in relation to the perversion of justice. That it should come from a lawmaker is unacceptable.

    I hope the judge takes that into account when sentencing. I have this impression he is not a pushover.

    But for now the day is yours.

    Which only goes to show that, if you’re going to get your wife to take the rap for you on something as minor (in the grand scheme of things) as a speeding violation, don’t, years later, become a Minister, especially of something as dodgy as windmills, and whatever you do, don’t dump the old bag for a Miranda-Hart’s-older-sister type. Things have a way of getting beyond your control when you do such terribly inadvisable things, don’t you know.

    Huhne has long form. When he was a hack at the Guardian and Indie prior to his city-slicker-tipster career – he was detested by his colleagues who knew him to take “short cuts” and fabricate facts. During the Lib-Dem leadership campaign against Clegg, his true colours were even more apparent. His private and very un-Lib-Dem share-holdings, his part in the break-up of Vicky Pryce’s first marriage and the feelings of her two daughters from that first marriage (who saw through Huhne and refused to take his name after he married their mother). Huhne even threatened legal action against one blogger who reported on these facts. (Google it!)

He could even had made a joke of it: “I can always justify my ministerial limo as a health and safety measure”.
