Pryce on Huhne’s Trimingham: “That Man of Yours”

Vicky Pryce’s trial has begun and furious phone-calls between her and her ex-husband are being played to the jury. One line has got a lot of attention. When hearing from Huhne that he had not broken up with his current lover; his former bi-sexual press officer Carina Trimingham, Pryce responded:

“I am so pleased that you are still with that man of yours.”

Ouch…

        Sometimes the most revealing comments are those that remain unspoken. In 2011, David Cameron boldly announced to the Tory conference that he would legalise same-sex marriage “because I am a Conservative”, saying all relationships deserved support.

        Today, he is nowhere to be seen or heard on the issue. At no point, as the row over gay marriage reached its height in recent days, has Mr Cameron said anything in public about why he supports the reforms. The Bill, which is being debated in the Commons for the first time today, was not discussed at Cabinet. Even the Prime Minister’s official spokesman would not repeat the reasons why the government believes this reform is necessary.

        Mr Cameron will not be on the front bench for the start of the debate and may well not attend at all. He has a “very active day” of meetings and appointments, Downing Street said. But he will vote, we are told.

        So why the silence? Either Mr Cameron has got cold feet and no longer believes in the Bill (in which case, stay tuned for the most sensational U-turn of recent years), or he is desperate to dodge what has become a PR disaster for his party.

        His bold promise at the Conservative conference in Manchester was seen as a potent sign of his determination to show how far the Tory party had changed. As the anger and division have grown ever since, it seems to have had exactly the opposite effect.

          They should have noticed he had his fingers crossed behind his back says:

          According to Peter Bone Conservative MP for Kettering(probably at prompting of “Mrs Bone”)on BBC Daily Politics….Cameron was asked specifically 2 days before 2010 Election whether he had any intention of bringing forward legislation for Gay Marriage and replied that he categorically had not and that his supporters had his “Cast-Iron” Guarantee to that effect…….Peter Bone contend therefore that Cameron has no electoral mandate either in the country or the party for such legislation and that Cameron should hold a referendum on the issue so that public opinion can be properly guaged and not rely on opinion polls…

    Would be very interesting indeed to see what exactly happened during their divorce, however those records are sealed and the court itself would have been in camera if a trial happened.

    Pryce and duress ? Pull the other one.

    Huhne though is a prize mong, but she is the brains and very likely the one who caused the real damage to UK competitiveness. Why we were using Greek economic advisers is in hindsight lunacy.

      I have only followed the detail so closely, there is a limit to how much you want to trawl these odd people’s lives, but it is not quite clear whether Huhne filled out the forms, signed them and sent them off (at one extreme) and she begged that she should take them for him (at the other faintly ridiculous end.)

      No doubt we shall hear how it happened in the evidence but I could see a point on this long scale where such a plea could just, at a pinch, wind behind you, cycling down hill, be acceptable.

        The most credible explanation is that it was a mutually agreed decision. However, that her character appears to be of a certain persuasion (evidenced prior to today) does call into question her real motivation for agreeing.

        Quite a hold you then have over the other.

        The divorce details are relevant as they will likely help complete the picture of the relationship and how it had deteriorated.

        Personally feel nothing either way for these two.

            Think of it this way.

            If he had maintained his not guilty plea, with that text message allegedly from his son, what would have happened in the trial ?

            His defense would have had to cross examine his son, possibly forcing his son into a position of implicating himself as being an accessory to this long running crime and then being subject to prosecution.

            If that extreme had not happen, pitting father against son in a court of law would have done neither any favors longterm.

            Huhne did the right thing here by his family, despite the way it is painted by some. He doesn’t care about his own credibility anymore as it is not relevant. He does care about his son and in the future having a relationship and likely being a grandfather.

            It’s good that Huhne is out of public life now, but for him life goes on beyond the case.

Apparently Huhne went from a not-so-facially-femininely-attractive-looking woman, to one even less so. It is a bit like going from Laura San Giacomo (but not with the same figure) to Miranda Hart (more closely approximating the original). But it really is pot-and-kettle, if we are being honest.
