        I met Anonymous a couple of times. He’s actually a fellow Wykehamist. In those days he was still using his real name, the Hon. Gaveston Vaporetti-Punck. I’m afraid a PPE degree at Oxford and time in the salt mines as an unpaid intern for Hilary Benn have left him with a few issues.

      Well he will be very slim and trim when he gets out, with the additional attraction of having an arsehole like a Clown’s Pocket.

    Macshane out, Huhne out. Great stuff. Now we need a concerted campaign to force Brown to resign his seat.

    R Swiper says:

    Bet he only gets 6 months in Ford Open, reduced to 4 for good behaviour. And his Parliamentary severance package (tax free), his ministerial pension and after a discreet time booted up to the Lords on £300 quid a day. And he still has £17m in the bank from previous career. Nice work if you can get it!

    Dino says:

    This is the man who many in the Lib Dems wanted as new leader. First they chose Cleggy, then they chose Huhne. They can definitely pick them. Please Sir, Please Sir, can we make them pick Cable? It would be comedy Gold each and every day.

    Malcolm Redfellow says:

    What is about certain constituencies that they elect absolute weirdos?

    Lest we forget: Eastleigh was once the “seat” of Stephen Milligan, he of the bin-liner, oranges and black stockings. And … bang went a rock-safe Tory majority; and Julie Kirkbride had to find a new squeeze.

    Who at the back there mentioned ‘double-dipping’?

    Who appointed Chris Huhne to be a minister?

  26. 39
    Nick Clegg says:

    LET US REFLECT & BE FAIR; Chris Huhne attempts to avoid points on driving license = PRISON. David Laws steals £40,000 = CABINET POSITION.

    Lord Lupin says:

    Prisons and Parliament are two places full of ‘innocent’ people, so he’ll feel quite at home there. As a politician he was always someone’s bitch.

    Anonymous says:

    Typical politician, believed the law should’t have to apply to him and lied for 10 years wasting how much taxpayers money on this ?

    I wonder do Clegg and the rest of the Lib-Dems have anything to say on this ?

    Tonight’s Dispatches special on Channel 4 has more revelations on the Plebgate stitch-up.

    Legal Eagle says:

    It is not illegal to tell a lie.

    It is illegal to enter into a conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

    It is not allowed to mislead the House of commons: This can be considered contempt of Parliament.

    It is considered contempt or perjury if a lie is told whilst under oath, and lying to the police in certain circumstances is most certainly an offence.

    The screwing up of energy policy, re the windmills, may yet bear further fruit if it can be proven that the house was mislead or there were other improper actions taken in the recent past.

    With this conviction though, irrespective of custodial sentence, it will be interesting to see if usual employment policies are applied moving forward.

    Note the subtle change in language employed:

    1. Will the defendant please rise

    2. The convicted will rise for sentencing

      By Tomothy ( as Paul Temple would say ) I thought Vicky was hardly Marylin Monroe but this one ….. Skank Central.

      Can someone not take Huhne aside and enlighten him to the fact miilions in assets allow one to court glamorous looking strumpets as opposed to rabid mingers ?

      I was thinking Ron Jeremey could give him a workshop on that …. but apparently he’ s in intensive care with a dodgy ticker somewhere in California.

      ( Mind you why ami I citing Paul Temple as an exemplar … with a wife whose name is ” Steve ” ?!)

    In the midst of 650 parasites and vultures ruining our lives, a tiny glimmer of redemption. I never thought he’d fess up and plead guilty.

    What a great day.

    I hope his perjury will rule out any future career in politics. I wouldn’t guarantee it though….yet

    The Prangwizard of England says:

    I see Clegg is shocked and saddened. Didn’t know he was guilty, really, pull the other one? He’s been supporting this criminal for years. Any chance Clegg can be charged with aiding and abetting?

    • 116
      rebekah aka nellnewman says:

      I doubt very much if cleggie was shocked and saddened. I suspect he did a little jig behind the scenes when he heard the news.

      huhne was cleggie’s arch enemy and gearing up for a challenge of the leadership. cleggie must be a very relieved man this lunchtime.

      Big question is who now in the libdems is going to come forward to challenge him – it looks as though the way is clear for simon hughes to have a go.

  66. 124
    ByElection Watch says:

    So Eastleigh:

    i) LibDems: Previous MP jailed, junior in coalition with no chance of getting their stated policies across the line, pro EU. Backdrop of Cyril Smith.

    ii) Labour: Some MP’s may be in court soon, deny EU referendum, no policies except one on banning Frosties.

    iii) Conservatives: Following nu-Labour policies, at least one sitting MP likely to be arrestd by Fernbridge imminently, another on the front bench has familial relations to the other, unconvincing on EU referendum pledge. Economy still screwed, abandoned conservative principles.

    iv) UKIP: Clear stated policies. Definitely better choice than the ‘none of the above’ candidate.

    Will be interesting.

  67. 126
    Operation Crossbow says:

    Huhnevwon’t do jail time, probably why he changed his plea, he’ll get a suspended sentence and then a nice job in Brussels with all the other crooks.

    • 141
      rebekah aka nellnewman says:

      I think I’m right in saying that his criminal conviction prevents him by law from holding anymore public offices either here or in the EU.

    Sunny Jim says:

    Here’s another point too – had the recommendations of Leveson been introduced, he would have been in the position of being able to ‘gag’ the media – and it’s only thanks to the media that this all came to light. Yes, the Press can be a pain, but it’s only because of the Press that we have a chance of keeping politicians (sort of) honest. No wonder the bastards want to control it

    Seeing how this person has lied and cheated in his private capacity every contract or thing he has touched in the public domain will have to be scutinised and publicly examined in detail .

    There are thousands and thousands of people wrongly placed on the Disability Register .

    I suggest we employ say 50 people from the Register to investigate and report back to us .

    No need to employ the lawyers I say .

    Megatron for PM says:

    Just think – if the Royal Mail were slightly more reliable, he’d have been the leader of the Lib Dems.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberal_Democrats_leadership_election,_2007

    “About 1,300 postal votes were caught up in the Christmas post and missed the election deadline. An unofficial check of the late papers showed Huhne had enough votes among them to hand him victory. ”

    Oh to be living in one of those parallel universes on this day!

    • 177
      Frightened Inmate #2 says:

      Clegg won by 511 votes so the late 1300 votes would have had to have been skewed more than 900-400 in Huhne’s favour. Given the closeness of the race this is statistically impossible. Either the story is a complete canard, or if true, Huhne was trying some late ballot-stuffing but screwed it up.

  75. 154
    Stoke says:

    When the judge has Huhne and Fawkes in the same room, my guess is there is a rythmic thudding coming from under the bench as he contemplates who he really wants to fuck up.

  76. 159
    Riggsy Brown says:

    I enjoyed a long career as a journo investigating politicos and various other ne’er-do-wells like the stiflingly smug Huhne and am no sycophant. But I salute Guido/Paul for his relentless pursuit of this 24-carat asshole and helping keep the spotlight on his insufferable conceit and casual relationship with veracity.

    `Man down’, as they are taught to say at Hereford in parallel circumstances. McShane next, I fervently hope!

  77. 175

    Another one Dappy Dave had “full confidence” in – but we all know that when Dave says he has confidence in them, they are in fact the scum of the earth.

  79. 179
    Dixon of Dock Green says:

    Huhne will get third off his sentence for putting his hands up and pleading guilty almost at the last minute, I guess he didn’t let his overweaning arrogance get the better of him and took advice from his ‘learned friends’.It will be interesting to see what he gets, whatever it is you can bet it won’t be a proper wack of jail, which may ‘encourage the others’ in parliament to behave themselves,although I doubt it. Like the other bent MPs who went down, they all got a short lie down in soft jails, lots of guys do longer in the dinner queue.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
