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.
