        I think speed limits in motor way are too low. These limits were set for the cars manufactured in 60s, should be increased.

        Most people on this blog would have exceeded the speed limit. When the Law is wrong can we blame Chris for breaking it and trying to cover it?

        I think he should be freed with a fine rather than waste more tax payer money by keeping him inside. There are lots of convicted criminals who has done things much worse are let out with a caution.

          Until he knew that he wouldnt get away with his lying after all says:

          CPS lawyer Malcolm McHaffie said: “Chris Huhne made sustained challenges against the prosecution before pleading guilty at the last minute.’

          • Anonymous says:

            Can Malcolm McHaffie say he never broke the spread limit or was in a car that broke the speed limit?

            I don’t like Chris mainly due to green taxes which increase energy cost for millions.

          • He deserves all he gets, and more says:

            I think that he may possibly be able to say that he has not committed perjury anon.

          • Anonymous says:

            Like what was happening in inquiries, if Chris and his ex wife have told that they cannot remember but someone has to take the fine so it was decided his then wife took the point. If he has told like that would it have been fine?

          Its the perverting the course of justice that is the issue not speeding.

          Do keep up

            It all started with a law in my view is wrong. How many of you think motor way speed limits are low?

          • Justice Fingers says:

            So you don’t agree with a law, then that makes it OK to ignore?

            A: This is not about speed.
            Even if it was, and all the cars on the roads are the best technology can provide, there would still be a need for a speed limit.

            Because there are Chris Huhnes about that live in a delusionary world that does not connect actions with consequences. Does it not worry you, his lack of ability to see far enough ahead?

            What other decisions were taken for immediate gain?

          • Anonymous says:

            Terry Dactyl, so do you support the current speed limit?

          • Anonymous says:

            Current speed limit is an issue. Ministers are even lieing in parliament nothing is done about it.

            This is a small issue compared to what is happening in this country. What is the point in wasting resources. Just let him out with a big fine rather then wasting even more money by putting him inside.

          • Ron Gendofthestick but still bleeding true. says:

            Fuck sake anonymous, are you still trying to justify a dirty little law breakers actions?

          • Anonymous says:

            Ron Gendofthestick but still bleeding true, trying to stop wasting public money. If Chris is fined it is cash inflow to government if he is put inside it will be cash outflow for the government.

            Keeping Chris inside will cost the public around £1,000 a week.

          • CarryHole is a silly Hunt says:

            Some anonymongs on here are too stupid to be allowed a computer.

            They should do away with WIMP and wysiwyg and make it hard to use a puter so it cuts out the mongs.

          Yes you’re absolutely right mummy Huhne.. on the other hand, Chris is a lying, cheating, dirty scummy shit who deserves to have the fucking book thrown at him preferably the heaviest book you could find.

          Cmdr. Buck Dynamite says:

          He was going through roadworks. It’s rare, I know, but occasionally there are workmen around in roadworks, and they have been known to be killed by irresponsible little twats like Huhne,

          But that’s by the by. His main crime was perjury, not speeding.

          • Anonymous says:

            Do you think its ok to tell lies in parliament? In my view its worse but there is no punishment for it.

          • Anonymous says:

            But some have help, even if workmen are around.

            Three point manoeuvre through a gap, and a U turn on the M25 and the driver never faced any charges. I wonder whose friend that could be?

          • William Jefferson Clinton says:

            My main crime was perjury, too, but a lot of people were willing to give me a pass, considering I was lying about cheating on that shrew of a wife of mine– they didn’t know but what they might do the same. Huhne, on the other hand, conspired in perjury with his wife, who turned into a shrew when she found out he was cheating on her. Big difference, you’d have to say.

    Huhne hasn’t had those three points added to his license.

    Jones attempts at defending himself are utterly pathetic.

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.”
