Damning Pryce Emails Point to Another LibDem Cover Up

The original Sunday Times report on Huhne and speeding referred to Westminster rumour and speculation about him taking points. Well guess who it was talking about the case…

Emails shown to the Pryce jury point the finger at the very top of the LibDem establishment, who once again seem very good about ignoring things they do not want to hear:

  • 12 March 2011: 

Pryce to Sunday Times: “Other possibility would be to tell NC or his close associates (having coffee with Miriam this PM) that the papers are on to him … (that also might have the added benefit of NC not wanting any more scandals and ease him out anyway …).” 

  • 9 April 2011:

Pryce to Sunday Times: “Actually I had told Vince and Rachel about points before when the three of us were having supper about a month ago – they were horrified at the time but VC has probably forgotten it by now. He was v tired that night.”

  • 18 April 2011:

Pryce to Sunday Times: “Having lunch with Miriam c tmr. Should I hint at anything? I told Vince there is something hanging over him [Huhne] and he wanted to tell Clegg.”

  • 26 April 2011:

Sunday Times to Pryce: “To what extent is Clegg aware that something is hanging over Huhne (you mentioned it to Miriam, didn’t you?)”

Pryce: “Yes, I have told VC, Miriam C, MOak (Matthew Oakeshott) … and a few other Lib Dem Lords and others working close to NC.”

A spokesman for Vince Cable says:

“Vince and Rachel have no recollection of the issue of points being raised with them over the course of dinner with Vicky Price on 28 January 2011. They have consulted their personal records which confirm that the issue first came to their attention in May 2011 when the story broke in the press.”

What sort of personal records did they keep? A diary? 

A Lib Dem spokesman says: “Vince, Matthew and Miriam are all clear that the allegation about driving points was not raised with them.” A spokesman for Miriam Clegg says: “I have never ever been told by Vicky or anybody else about the traffic points story. I got to know about this when everybody else did.” Lord Oakeshott says: “Vicky must have been under a lot of pressure, but I am sure she never raised the points with me.” Remind you of any other recent outbreaks of yellow amnesia? 

UPDATE: Vicky Pryce claims Huhne made his millions from “dodgy investments” relating to his father’s speed camera company.

    A weak Pound is a clear sign of Weak Government, think about it for a moment, we are a Manufacturing Nation who make things to sell to others, we have to import most of the materials to make these exports, it cost us more to buy the materials then get less for the goods we sell, the only thing that counts in the end is PROFIT. Thus it is better to spend a penny to earn a penny profit than spend a pound and make a penny profit… simple terms but the principal holds….. others judge you by what they see…. a weak pound means a weak government….

It will come, war and poverty favour us not your liberal money obsessed system, history will be ours in the long run.

    It will just take one incident to trigger the move to more militancy once people see the violence of the state used against ordinary people then it will start. It is just that your country has not seen violence like this close up, but it will happen. Your current politicians will be swept away in the storm, ask yourself what is happening in Greece, Italy, Spain and Ireland they face centuries of debt to pay for the bad decisions of bankers and the parasite politicians. Do you really think the current situation can go on for years and years without revolt? The British will not lead it but once they see others doing it then they will join.

They will find money traces!

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
