BREAKING: Huhne 8 Months, Pryce 8 Months

Huhne gave two interviews before he was jailed. This to the Guardian:

“I am sorry. I want to say that to family, to friends, to constituents and to colleagues. Lawmakers can be many things, but they cannot be lawbreakers. I should have owned up and got on with doing something else with my career. It is awful that people I love have been dragged into this gruelling experience. My family need time and space to get over this. Anyone who knows me knows I am not a bully -that is not amongst friends my reputation. Of course I do not want to go to prison. Losing freedom hurts, but I will not be the first person to go to prison.”

And this to Channel 4 News:

“I certainly lied & lied again, and part of it was about saving my career. It was a very stupid thing to do and I very much regret doing it. I am very sorry that I did do it.”

Lights out…

    Prison!
    I’m in Prison
    And my arse hurts
    So that I can hardly speak
    And I yearn to find
    The ointment that I seek
    When we’re in together
    Lying cock to cheek

    Oh
    I love to kiss bisexuals
    And to give their nipples tweaks
    But it doesn’t thrill me
    Half as much
    As cheating on a Greek

    Prison!
    I’m in Prison
    And the press
    That’s hung around me
    Through the week
    Seems to vanish
    Like the Lib Dems
    Lucky streak
    When we’re in together
    Lying cock to cheek

    Oh
    I love to go out speeding
    In a Beemer or a Jeep
    But I don’t enjoy it half
    As much as Lying to the beak

    Vote for me
    I want my lies to charm you
    The lies that harm you
    Will carry me through to

    Prison!
    I’m in Prison
    And my arse hurts

    The sentence should have been expressed as, say 240 days, and arranged for it to be spent in chokey on weekends for the next two-years-and-change, and obviously no time off for good behaviour. It’s a non-violent offence stemming from a traffic ticket. These two well-into-middle-age toffs aren’t likely to go out and stick up a shop somewhere. Let ‘em try to work an honest job five days a week, lock ‘em up Friday at 1800 and let ‘em out the same time Sunday; work late on Friday, do like football– add the time on at the end on Sunday. Put a crimp in their lives that they’re likely to resent a lot longer than a custodial sentence remitted part way through; that would be punishment for these privileged characters.

    Esther Blishment, columnist says:

    Many will be gloating over Chris Huhne’s eight month prison sentence today but not me. When you look at the facts of the case, that Chris Huhne is a person from a privileged background, had political power, and was a friend of mine, surely it cannot be right that such a person should be subject to the same laws and punishments as everyone else. In more enlightened times, the people who ran the country were subject to different treatment when they stepped out of line. A baron who raped and killed a serving wench might be banished from court to their estate for a decent interval rather than hanged like a peasant would have been. Some saw this as unfair but think about all that baron had done for the country compared to the peasant. Isn’t it time we went back to such a system so men of good standing such as Chris Huhne can be shown the deference they deserve?

  299. 299
    feel the pinch of insufficient justice says:

    Once again, for the benefit of the hard-of-thinking :
    Huhne has been done for perverting the course of justice.
    He upped the stakes, tried to bluff his way out of a relatively minor offence and it all back-fired on him.
    He thinks he is above the law that is supposed to apply to us all.
    It’s a bit like Al Capone being put away for tax evasion. This conviction doesn’t really do him justice, but it’s a start.
    There are certainly plenty more major criminals in Westminster who also need to be banged up.

    Well said.

    Chris Huhne and Vicky Price both were highly successful people with good careers. Their careers are pretty much ruined now, especially Chris’. They will be taken from court stripped by prison officers and put in cells. They will have unspent criminal convictions for ten years. And this has been done so publicly, even the details of their family problems were published.

    They brought this on themselves and I’m not saying the judge was wrong to jail them but they’re also people with feels and it’s sad. So why openly gloat?

    I see that someone earlier suggested branding the felon Huhne with an “M” for Malefactor.

    In fact, the branding iron read “MF” — twice as painful, as one can see.

    If it was a capital offence people like this pair, who are at least semi-literate, could plead Benefit of Clergy. This meant that they were branded on the thumb with the letter T, meaning “Tyburn, next time”.

    These days they can just go on the BBC, pleading to be Greenies and pro-EU, and become officially-approved victims.

    Remember: She wanted to destroy Chris (not a bad aim) by implicating an innocent third party (rumbled only because the third party didn’t have a driving license), by winning people to her cause and in the process getting off scot free herself with career intact and a sense of satisfaction.

    Details…

    Cable and certain other Lib Dems she implicated in her emails as well as the family of the main reporter and Br!scoe are likely the real brains behind this. Target being concerned with Lib Dem leadership.

    What is relevant: Ed Davey who took over from Huhne was Under Sec State in Vince Cables department (Business Innovation & Skills). This gives Cable quite a lot of clout now.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/9059411/Ed-Davey-confirmed-as-new-Energy-Secretary.html

    Norman Lamb who was senior advisor to Clegg ‘replaced’ Davey, Jenny Willott brought back in as assistant whip. Willott had previous worked under Huhne, but resigned that position in 2010 over tuition fees.

    This is before the family of one of the key reporters is considered.

    This is all significant methinks, and there is still a stench lingering.

    One thing that strikes me about the whole Huhne farrago is the sheer nastiness about almost everything to do with this supposed power couple.

    As Mr Wad has already pointed out, the picture at the top is indicative of this. One doubts the photographer would have deliberately put himself into this situation.

    But also the circumstance in which he reported his relationship with Ms Trimingham to his then wife was absolutely shameful. That he should use his marriage as a prop to get elected was cynical beyond belief. Marriages tend to fail nowadays and that can happen after decades. It is very sad. However, whilst nothing like this can be an easy task, there are better ways and worse ways to break the news. He chose quite the most callous way. That choice, as much as anything, means he is serving time in jail tonight.

    One is inclined to think that this state of viciousness and spite is the only way that people can survive in the political world. If so it does not reflect well upon us as the ones who vote this type of person into power.

    In the Guardian today, I read that Huhne says he is really sorry for lying. He uses the familiar formula Lawmakers cannot be Lawbreakers. To be perfectly honest, I read that thinking that even his supposed contrition was yet just another part of his manipulation, not only of the press, but of all of us.

    Any normal person would never have got themselves in this position…bu the fact that he did, and he feels completely no remorse tells you volumes about the brain of this man…he is completely NPD…as are most of those narcissists in the HoP.

    They are a strange bunch in HoP, but not much different to what is found in large companies etc. Agree that Huhne is classic NPD.

    Judge did state in summing up today that the guilty plea showed the beginnings of remorse. He probably does feel genuinely bad about relationship with his children possibly being finished now.

    The only good thing about the course of action he took is that by holding out he forced nearly all the facts out. If he had not done that, it would have likely been a miscarriage of justice.

    If the 2003 speeding conviction had caused his Eastleigh bid to fail, then Energy policy would likely be different right now, as would certain aspects of governance over that 8 year period.

    Huhne did get 9 months, but this is reported as 8 due to the 10% discount for guilty.

    Next up on this thread will be costs, yet to be awarded.

    Huhne could be looking at best part of GBP 100k, Pryce GBP ~40k.

    This is on top of whatever they have had to pay their legal.

    Bear in mind that Huhne would have already had to have shelled out a lot to Pryce in the divorce, so in practice he is likely paying for the lot.

They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world…When you hear the Engl*sh talk of this war you sometimes almost want them to lose it to show them how things are. They have the greatest contempt for the continent in general and for the French in particular… Eng*nd first. This slogan is taken for granted by the Engl*sh people as a whole. To lose their Emp*re would be the worst possible humiliation”.

    We lost our Emp*re, but the final humiliation will be his forceps-faced son managing to chance his way into becoming the Prime Minister of this country, overseeing its demise to a backward hellhole.

    What a nasty ungrateful €unt Ed Milliblands father is.. My grandfather (one of the hardest working men I have known) fought his way through the middle east and got captured and forced to work in a coal mine in Poland along side his comrades for the freedom of that waste of breath… Make sure Red Ed never gets a sniff at number ten. what a €unt!

    Why does a country like Argentina, with half of its population being descendants of implanted European colonists, criticise the Falkland Islanders? What hypocrisy.

    Have I got this right ?

    You get a relatively light 8 month sentence and unless you wreck your cell you get to be released after 8 weeks .

    There is a cost application made against you and the Judge and lawyers immediately agree yet another adjournment.

    Statement of Fact says:

    The length of sentences are meaningless due to the early releases. Eight months should be eight full months. If you damage your cell or cause other problems the sentence should be increased.

    polycratos says:

    The criminal Huhne was only sorry he got caught, his apology was a typical politicians deception. He wasnt sorry when he employed expensive ambulance chasers to get the case he knew he was guilty of thrown out on a technicality, he wasnt sorry when he lied constantly about his guilt only admitting it when he was cornered. When he gets out he will still be rich and will still be looked by the subsidy looting windmill profiteers he represented as a minister, a few lucrative directorships will cheer him up. But most of all he isnt sorry about the misery and pain he inflicted on ordinary people because of the policies he peddled.

    You can’t argue with a sick mind.

    A C Grayling may be mistaken politically but he is a damned fine philosopher. I have had the privilege of listening to him speak several times and he lacks the bombast of a Huhne, since we happen to be on this page.

    This is well observed.

    To my idea, it demonstrates how the ethical dimension has once again been found wanting in high places. This time in journalism. Again.

    Isabel comes from a notable family which includes Matthew Oakeshott (but not apparently Michael) and she should know better.

    Remember too that these Greek protesters burnt a pregnant young woman alive just because she worked in a Bank.

    Exactly. A lot of them are the same kind of human shit that rioted during the student March :

    EU Watch says:

    Not sure if it was ever discovered who did that, if you can prove these people in 2013 are the same as those in 2010 who were responsible the Greek police would be interested.

    No one targeted the pregnant young woman.

    She was upstairs in the bank and would have been unknown to those who set fire to the place.

    The employer should have realized what was going on and ensured that their staff were away that day, and perhaps not put pregnant young women in harms way.

    Made excellent propaganda for the bank and the state though, which is the only reason it got reported, so perhaps she was there for that reason.

    There was a follow up:

    http://edition.cnn.com/2012/05/02/world/europe/greece-papathanasopoulou-family

    If it was the action of genuine protest, the burning down of the bank makes perfect sense as it is the banks which are responsible for the economic issues which caused the political instability in the first place: More precisely the banks and the EU.

    If it was just this bank that was targeted it is unlikely to be a genuine crowd reaction, but more likely a cherry picked example to make a political point, or perhaps to settle an old score.

    A lot of documents which could otherwise be embarrassing would have been destroyed in the fire. So the question as to the who is a bit more complex than is suggested in that T’Graph report.

    Initially Mrs Pryce accused Mr Huhne’s aide as the person who took Mr H’s points

    Does her sentence reflect her accusations against an innocent person

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
