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…

        1) What will be the out come if Conservatives win. LD will get upset and block most conservative policies. Clegg might be forced out as leader of LD. Cameron will continue to go with it as without LD Cameron cannot be PM.

        2) If LD wins, Cameron will have a huge in-fighting with Conservatives. Cameron will be blamed for not winning and could lead to a leadership challenge. Looked at past few elections there, LD cannot win without the help of Labour voters tactically voting LD. I cannot think it happening this time around.

        3) If Labour wins, Conservatives and LD leaderships will have a nightmare to manage their own parties. Lots of Conservative and LD MPs will be worried about losing their seats in the next general election.

        4) UKIP wins, it will be the end of Cameron Conservatives.

        Looks like nightmare had just started for Cameron and Clegg.

    Father tried to take blame for son’s speeding

    Published on Saturday 8 July 2006 09:25

    Pair in court admit conspiracy ruse

    Olwen Dudgeon

    A PRISON officer who took the blame for his son’s speeding offence to save him a driving ban appeared in the dock with him yesterday on a conspiracy charge.

    David Shimeld, an officer at Wakefield Jail, was persuaded by his son Andrew to say he was driving a company car when it was caught on camera over the limit on the A43 in Northampton.

    Philip Adams, prosecuting, told Leeds Crown Court that Andrew Shimeld already had nine points on his licence and a further three points would have brought a disqualification.

    He had just started a new job and feared he would lose it if he was banned, so talked his father into saying he was the driver when the fixed penalty speeding ticket was issued. As a result it was his father’s licence which was endorsed with three penalty points in addition to a 60 fine.

    The duo might have got away with the lie but for the fact that Andrew Shimeld was seen still driving by his former employer, for whom he had been working at the time of the offence.

    He knew that the speeding prosecution should have led to a ban and queried the matter with the police who made inquiries and enlarged the photo from the speed camera. That showed the driver was much younger than 54-year-old David Shimeld leading to the arrest of both him and his son.

    Andrew then accepted he was the driver and said his father had only agreed because of the emotional blackmail about him losing his new job.

    Andrew Shimeld, 32, of Headlands Road, Ossett, was sentenced to 38 weeks, of which 12 will be spent in jail and the remaining 26 weeks on licence after he admitted conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

    His father from Darnley, Wakefield, was ordered to do 240 hours’ unpaid work for the community for the same offence.

    Sentencing them, Recorder Jonathan Rose said Andrew Shimeld should have paid for his breach of the law. Instead he had tried to evade his responsibility and it was only through the astuteness of his former employer that he had not got away with it.

    The offence struck at the very heart of justice and others had to learn they too could not get away with such a simple trick.

    The seriousness of what they had done had no doubt been brought home to David Shimeld having to stand in the dock, but he could rely on his excellent record in the armed forces and prison service.

    Mr Adams said at the time of the speeding offence Andrew Shimeld was working for a recruitment company in Birmingham but had phoned in sick that day only to drive to Northampton to arrange new alternative employment.

    By the time the ticket arrived for the company car he had started that new job but his former employers forwarded it to him.

    Tim Stead, representing Andrew, said he felt totally responsible and regretted involving his father not appreciating the seriousness of what they were doing.

    Michael Greenhalgh, for David Shimeld, said he knew what he had done was morally wrong but acted only to help his son.

    He had served in both Northern Ireland and Germany while in the armed forces. After being discharged on health grounds he joined the prison service spending the last 21 years at Wakefield Prison where he was dealing in the main with people serving life sentences.

    He was highly regarded in the prison service as shown in a letter from the Governor and others said Mr Greenhalgh who urged the court not to impose an immediate custodial sentence which would cost the officer his job.

    Sentencing them, Recorder Jonathan Rose said Andrew Shimeld should have paid for his breach of the law. Instead he had tried to evade his responsibility and it was only through the astuteness of his former employer that he had not got away with it.

    The offence struck at the very heart of justice and others had to learn they too could not get away with such a simple trick.

      Richard III by comparison was regarded as a lion of the battlefield . He had fought , and won, his first battle at the age of 19.

        Of course, Parliament is supposed to represent the people at large and that includes those with previous criminal records. It would be worrying if those with criminal records as a percentage in parliament greatly exceeded the country as a whole though but as you point out, we don’t know.

        There is also the aspect that the time served atones for the crime and the record is kept from the court at least up to the time of sentencing in any further trial. If applying for a visa, many countries will want to know about criminal records involving a sentence in excess of a year only.
