    Yup, it’s on Sky News. Excellent – that has made my day.

    Perverting the Course of Justice should get him banged-up for a while. ‘orrible little man thoroughly deserves it.

    Henry Brubaker says:

    So the contempible little shit was guilty all along hey?

    Who’da thunk it?

    By pleasding guilty now it will mean a reductionin his sentence. I still hope prison awaits.

    I have always thought Chris kind
    And of like and liberal mind
    Someone upstanding and clean
    Who could ne’er do anything mean.
    In short, as close as anyone could be
    To someone as terrific as me.

    So I would just like to say
    This has truly made my day.

    The Huhnatic! You have no idea how pleased I am that this arrogant pillock is looking at a custodial sentence. Don’t be dropping the soap in the shower lad…

    Snotrocket says:

    He’s hoping the court will ignore all the delaying tactics he employed,and the time-wasting that went on, so that they will take account of him pleading guilty – to save the court time!
    That will be taken into consideration, as well as the time it has taken to get to court and he will get off with a derisory suspended sentence, at best.
    And then the little sh*t will walk away and claim it was all a storm in a teacup.

    Grand Master says:

    Sorry Chris – but by pleading guilty you have undone all our careful work behind the scenes. Still we expect to help with the sentence. Boaz.

    fella on the underground says:

    Vicky will change her plea once her trial is underway.

    12 months in shared cell with ex

  36. 36
    Oh for gawds sake... says:

    That’s a shame. I actually wanted him to suffer the humiliation of a long, drawn-out trial, only to be found guilty at the end of it.

    It’s a bit like someone telling you the ending to a great movie, so you know what happens, but don’t get to enjoy a couple of hours of solid entertainment.

    Oh well, as long as his political career is f*cked, I don’t suppose it matters…

    Chris Huhne must resign from Parliament today unless of course his ex wishes to resign for him.

    Nick Clegg says:

    Do you really think this dollop of lying thieving shite will go to prison, he has already made a deal with an early guilty plea and will get a fine of £250 and suspended sentence.

  41. 41
    Chris Huhne is a piece of shit says:

    So this is the man who said for over a year he would clear his name, and now he’s been forced into a corner by some behind closed doors plea bargaining to plead guilty?

    What a fucking c-unt.

    I guess it would be too much to hope that Pryce confirms that she went along with the story due to Hune threatening to use his influence to ruin her career. Oh please do….

    Asked my wife if she’d answer for me
    I said, Vicky, can’t you see
    I wanna be famous, and run energy
    But please, please do something to help me

    Vicky you can drive my car
    Even though it’s from afar
    Vicky, you can drive my car
    And Vicky I love you

    I told them all that my marriage was good
    Pure apple pie and motherhood
    You got three points and a fifity quid fine
    Your kept your licence and I kept mine

    Vicky you can drive my car

    Frank's son says:

    He’s pleaded guilty in the hope the judge will take into consideration his guilty plea. Not withstanding the fact he has used delaying and stalling tactics for many months.

    What’s the odds he gets a suspended sentence? Could he still continue as an MP if that’s the case?

    Nation shall speak Socialism Unto Nation says:

    Here in the BBC news room we are really struggling to spin this, we have already changed the headline on the front page to read “speeding points lie” rather than “perverting the course of justice” –

    I guess we will just use the normal route of shoving inconvenient stories into the regional news pages as quick as possible.

    Helen B has asked us to find some nice positive stories about wind turbines to go on the front page instead – or even better some “Tory cuts” stories

    Remittance Man says:

    By his own admission he is guilty of attempting to pervert the course of justice.

    In the normal course of events, whatever sentence he’s given, there is no way an honourable man could continue to represent his constituents in parliament after that.

    What’s the betting Huhne, however, is hoping for a sentence of less than 12 months which would allow him to continue as an MP?

    TheBigYinJames says:

    Remember back in February:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-16866127

    In a short statement outside his London flat Mr Huhne said the CPS decision was “deeply regrettable. I am innocent of these charges and I intend to fight this in the courts and I am confident that a jury will agree.”

    Lies.

  82. 82
    Terrible But True says:

    After all that has gone before, one can only wonder at what the less than perfect messages that will be sent by the wheeling and dealing merchants now.

    Mistakes made. Lessons learned, etc.

    Will he be on a BBC-level payoff too?

    Cock-ups of epic proportion get 2 x what’s needed.

    On this basis breaking the law and taking the system to the limit to try and get away with it… what… a knighthood and enough in the bank to heat a 1,000 eco-levied pensioners’ homes?

  83. 83
    Remittance Man says:

    Obviously an honourable man would resign immediately whatever the length of sentence but MPs get to keep their jobs if the sentence is less than 12 months.

    How many people think Chris is honourable?

    Despatch from the Rear Cubicle of Pomeroy's Wine Bar says:

    Custodial Sentence is usual. “Perverting the Course of Justice” is viewed as extremely serious by the Courts.

  85. 85
    Henry Brubaker says:

    That is how our criminal justice system works. Plead guilty before the start and your sentence is automatically reduced, even if this is mere minutes before.

    Cue hours of wasted lawyer, police, witness & court time and all the related expense.

  97. 97
    An equivocating weaselly shifty legal cnut says:

    If she gets off the charge of conspiracy, then so must he because in the
    meaning of the word, conspiracy must involve more than one person and so the case against him collapses, in spite of his plea, having had no-one to conspire with.
    The facker must hang anyway, purely for having a face like that.

    or maybe he forged her details, signature etc on the form????? Wouldn’t that be good?!

  113. 113
    UKIPForme says:

    I suspect the deal done is that he’s going to get a custodial sentence, but for less than 12 months. This allows him to hang on (unless we the public demand he goes) to his seat in Eastleigh – and prevent UKIP from being able to mount a challenge to win the seat.

    He needs to be forced to step down from his seat by public anger – otherwise he’s going to wangle his way back into parliament.

  114. 114

    How very illiberal of us. Long may it continue.

    Well done Guido for your hounding of the Huhne.

    John Bellingham says:

    It has been long established. An MP may serve their constituents from chooky, although if an MP is absent from Parliament for a year a bye-election may be called, but the incumbent can still stand (from inside). But then they used to also get hanged as well.

    Tom says:

    Huhne has coldly calculated that by stringing this out, lying about his innocence, that anything might happen to save him over two years; Vicky Pryce gets run over by a bus, becomes ill, etc. If he had pleaded guilty from the off, that chance, no matter how slim, would never have existed. It was a long-odds gamble with no downside. Now time has been called and because he is guilty as sin, he has pleaded it. We can confidently expect Vicky Pryce who has brilliantly gone Not Guilty despite being bound to be found guilty (Marital Coercion simply won’t work for someone as sophisticated and Worldly as her – you really don’t get to be Chief Economist for KMPG if you are a wallflower) to now revel in her opportunity and take Huhne’s filthy pants out of the wash basket and wave his skid marks in the Nations face. Hhahahahhahahhahhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! The man is a lying, cynical, sub-human disgrace and his real crime is Windmills, for which he should be hung from one.

  122. 122
    Who says:

    Presumably he’s free until the verdict on Vicky?

  123. 123
    Court Scribbler says:

    Mr Justice Sweeney, the judge, asked Huhne to stand up and told him: “I’m going to grant you unconditional bail again. I will deal with your sentence on a date to be notified.

    “It is essential that you attend on that date and as Mr Kelsey-Fry has foreshadowed you should have no illusions whatsoever as to the sort of sentence that you are likely to receive. Understood?”

    Huhne nodded in reply.

    He told Miss Pryce: “I’m going to adjourn for the moment. Your bail will continue within the precincts of the court until further order later today.”

    Relevant Sentencing Guidelines

    R v Tunney [2007] 1 Cr. App. R. (S) 91
    The sentence appropriate for perverting the course of justice essentially depends on three matters:
    1.the seriousness of the substantive offence to which the perverting of the course of justice related;
    2.the degree of persistence; and
    3.the effect of the attempt to pervert the course of justice on the course of justice itself.

    So, aggravating: Premeditated, Persistent, Targetting the Innocent (VP)

    Degree of Seriousness: Persisted in maintaining his innocence, Example Set by Cabinet Minister.

    “You should be under no illusions whatsoever as to the sentence you are likely to receive,” he tells the former energy secretary, the man who twice made bids to become the Liberal Democrat leader.

    Huhne is currently in a court preparation room in discussions with his legal team.

    As a Privy Councillor he retains the “Right Honourable” That is unaffected by his resignation as MP

    Membership of the Privy Council is generally for life BUT

    “The Sovereign may however remove an individual from the Council. On 8 June 2011 Elliot Morley was expelled following his conviction on charges of false accounting in connection with an expenses scandal Before this, the last individual to be expelled from the Council against his will was Sir Edgar Speyer, 1st Baronet, who was removed on 13 December 1921 for pro-German activities during the First World War. Individuals may choose to resign to avoid expulsion. The last individual to leave the Privy Council voluntarily was Jonathan Aitken, who left on 25 June 1997 following allegations of perjury.”

    THE JUDGE says:

    Christopher Murray (Arthur/Martha) Paul-Huhne, you have pleaded guilty to the charges brought by this court, and it is now my duty to pass sentence.

    ”That is all I’m able to say.”

The Sovereign can of course refuse to create such as a peer depsite recommendation of her/his Prime Minister. However you will never know as the recommendations or otherwise of the Honours Committee remain secret

    The fact is, as his plea accepts, before a Jury he had no chance, a proven liar, putting himself before his family, he was bound to be convicted. A London jury wouldn’t take kindly to his smarmy sanctimonious attitude. As the prolonged legal evasiveness shows, his only chance was stopping it getting before a jury.

    As I understand it, marital coercion is a defence available to women in a marriage but not to men. After the Same Sex Marriage bill becomes law, will it apply to both parties to a lesbian marriage but neither of two married gay men?

    And as the Same Sex Marriage bill provides that either party to a heterosexual marriage will be able to change sex without dissolving the marriage, does this mean that the only way a straight married man will be able to plead marital coercion as a defence is to have a sex change.

    What was that about equality?
