Exclusive to All Papers: Murdoch Huhne Affair Conspiracy

Huhne is trying to paint himself as the victim of the Murdoch press because he called for a hacking inquiry from the frontbench, blaming everyone but himself for his own misdemeanours once again this morning. Huhne has used his time inside to work out who caused the end of the marriage (Rupert Murdoch) and who led to him being sent down (Rupert Murdoch):

“The News of the World sparked the end of my marriage, but another Murdoch title, the Sunday Times, then groomed my ex-wife until she told them about the speeding points. The political editor bought dinners, sent flowers, offered breaks at smart hotels, and reassured her that she would not face any unpleasant consequences (such as prison).

Four successive weeks as the splash in the Sunday Times ensured our joint prosecution. The Crown Prosecution Service loves a celebrity trial. It was the end of my political career, and it locked up my ex-wife too. She was just another “burned contact” for the Murdoch press.”

Bear in mind that the original Carina-affair story had a public interest angle because he put pictures of his family on his election leaflets (above). Murdoch cunningly got the affair story and the picture into the News of the World’s bitter rival the Sunday People, then got the Sunday Times’ rival Mail on Sunday to first make the running on the speeding points story after forcing Huhne to pervert the course of justice. He is delusional if he thinks this was a Murdoch-press conspiracy. The Sunday Times’ editor John Witherow really was not convinced the story would lead anywhere, the political editor Isabel Oakeshott had a hard time convincing Witherow the story had legs, most journalists believed that there would never be enough evidence to get Huhne charged. Only when the police raided the family home and got the evidence of the text messages did many in Fleet Street finally believe there was a chance he could be convicted. The CPS were very wary of charging a cabinet minister, they asked the police to get more evidence when they first came back with a dossier saying they had a case. Huhne’s enemies in the media – like this blog – detested him for personal and ideological reasons…

    genghiz the kahn says:

    So Christopher, why didn’t you ask your defence barrister to run that one past the judge and jurors?

  2. 2
    Andrew Efiong says:

    Chris Huhne lied and lied and lied and lied.

    Now he is trying to blame the media for his failures, whether his marriage, his family, his career all the way down to bad driving.

    Rather than lashing out he needs psychological help to help him come to terms with the damage he’s done.

  3. 3
    Speed Demon says:

    Huhne is a morally bankrupt piece of shit.

    He should join Labour.

  4. 4
    Fast & Furious says:

    Huhne is a crooked self-serving piece of shit.

    He should join Labour.

  5. 5
    Labour are Splitting says:

    How does he explain the coffee table conspiracy with the Judge bit ?

  6. 6

    He should have got two years and served at least 12 months. As it was, he served days only and was not rehabilitated.

  7. 7
    Psychologist says:

    If Huhne is suffering from a pathological narcissism disorder then the extra press attention will be feeding his needs.

    The guy lied on his mums obituary to help his own image.

    Case closed.

    Sarah Teather says:

    I am resigning because of the appalling way the Murdoch press has treated my mentor Chris also the lack of support by the Limpdems and the failure of them to back him.

    Mark Oateη says:

    Someone mention coffee tables?

    Huun says:

    It was Page 3 that made me eye up other women and the cost of fuel that made me drive faster so I could get to the pumps before it ran out.

    The poor ex jailbird is in need of medical help.

    Talwin says:

    Excuse Me. As I remember it, he plead guilty in court to having committed a criminal offence? Simple really.

  13. 13
    digging deeper will only make an earth mountain says:

    He can shout and blame the media as much as he wants but until he blames Fatcher, who will believe him.

  14. 14
    Yeah, right... says:

    I didn’t know that Huhne was from Liverpool.

  15. 15
    One a cunt always a cunt says:

    So he’s not sorry then?

    Why was he let out of prison early if he is still in denial, can they call him back to finish off the sentence?

  16. 16
    Blue Peter Goldfish says:

    Odious person was on radio 4 this morning carrying on about the great Satan Murdoch, another one on a crusade after getting out of the nick, strange slant on morality, his argument being I don’t like being caught out lying presumably, it’s just not fair!.

  17. 17
    Boris says:

    Christopher Paul Huhne has Liverpool syndrome.

  18. 18
    Yes but no but says:

    I thought he got out of jail early, on licence?

    If he is so clearly unrepentant, can he be called back in?

  19. 19
    Boris says:

    Christopher Paυl Huhne has Liverpool syndrome.

    Psychiatrist says:

    Psychiatrists normally look down on psychologists as nothing more than quacks, but in this instance, I whole heartedly agree with your analysis!

  21. 21
    golly says:

    Yep recall him. He clearly hasn’t learnt anything at all from his spell inside. Not surprising most of it was in some soft, open prison holiday camp.

    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Ecoloons says:

    This is just a smoke screen to deflect attention away from the beeboid bastards being scrutinised at 3.15pm by the Public Accounts Committee in Parliament.

    Get the popcorn ready :-)

    The End of the misuse says Ed...Wot complete wank says:

  25. 25
    Fishy says:

    Yes. The BBC have been giving this story some legs all morning. The odious VD on Five Live followed up with a very sympathetic reading of the story. But of course the BBC took a position on Murdoch and it serves their purpose to keep up their opposition

    It’s time this bastard learned his lesson and left the public stage for good. He got into government and had his chance, but his pathology destroyed him…and clearly it continues to do so.

    Scrap the BBC licence tax.

    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Ecoloons says:

    Starting with the Coop and Liebore councils?

  28. 28
    another court case wanted says:

    Huhne go and sue News International
    News of the World go and sue Huhne.

    Labour are Splitting says:

    You mean the others might once they get rid of you ?

  30. 30
    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Ecoloons says:

    That bloke’s saying to the woman opposite “who’s that wanker who looks like Wallace?”

  31. 31
    Guilt of the Guilty says:

    Man attacks another man for exposing the crimes he committed.

  32. 32
    Blue Peter Goldfish says:

    Blimey, they even try turn a shopping (photo-op) trip into a political statement, now we have got Labour, Lib Dem and Conservative supermarkets.

  33. 33
    bergen says:

    One of his friends (if he has any left) should have a word with him and tell him that he’s now starting to look ridiculous.

  34. 34
    Wee Willie Walsh says:

    That serial wifebeater MP in Jockland also claims he is a victim of press hounding, rather than a victim of his own inability to control himself.

    MPs. Hunts.

  35. 35
    Mary Whitehouse says:

    The bloke is a c*nt of the highest order and his attitude a very good example of the left wing elite that he belongs to.
    You must be a spastic if you vote for shit like him.

    chcocybiscuit says:

    Never Mind all that. What happened to the juicy gossip of affair by Blair and wendy…??? Who put the halters on that one???

    Tachybaptus says:

    Doesn’t need to. What do you think the Lib Dems are?

  40. 40
    Tachybaptus says:

    I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you.

  41. 41
    AllMPsaretwatsandliers says:

    I suppose hanging out of another woman had nothing to do with his marital failure.

  42. 42
    Peter Martin says:

    “He is delusional if he thinks this was a Murdoch-press conspiracy.”
    A delusion the Guardian has indulged, and the BBC has picked up on and run across its entire media estate.

    On FaceBook, from BBC News to Today, he, and the BBC are getting slaughtered for just about every aspect of this farcical outing, from the timing to the hubris to the grasp of facts. Even those no friends of Murdoch can see this for what it is, and are not impressed.

    If the BBC thought this may steer attention away from their own little day in the spotlight later on, it has backfired to a spectacular degree.

    Ah..a football reference.

  46. 46
    Oh for gawds sake... says:

    At least we can now answer the question on his election leaflet…

    “Family matters to me so much. Where would we be with out them?”

    – Wandsworth Prison.

  47. 47
    Postal Votes are Labour Loo Paper says:

    What a total weasel.

  48. 48

    Liar Politicians expect no sympathy from us the Public over upsetting the Murky World of the Media.You cannot run with the Foxes & the Hounds and expect to come out of it unscathed.Chris Huhne is bleating about Murky Murdoch’s ‘Newspapers’ pursuing him over his extramarital affair and then grooming his wife for a tell all disclosure because he wanted the police to reopen the case over Hacking.Murdoch bought Blair & Cameron,he said he used them – if true they aren’t fit for the Job,but they have proved that already.The Media is any Governments Propaganda Tool that’s why they have ‘Press Secretaries’ to feed the Media the BS they then enhance and feed to us.We have to sort the Wheat from the Chaff.The FOIA was just a ploy by Government to protect themselves.Governments do nothing for our Benefit.

    Just saying says:

    Chukka probably has staff to do his shopping.

  50. 50
    Yeah, right... says:

    You’ll be a huge loss to the political scene.

  51. 51
    Border Terrier says:

    Soft interview on The Today Programme with Huhne peddling his silly anti Murdoch guff with support from Sarah Montague and the BBC.

    Continuing conflict of interest as the BBC seeks to skewer its main competitor.

    BTW I’ve met and asked a question of Hulme – he is unbelievably arrogant and rude, and failed to answer the question.

  52. 52
    Yeah, right... says:

    No, a victim reference. See also Andy Burnham.

  53. 53
    Yeah, right... says:

    Cracking cheese counter Grommit.

    Frankie Boyle says:

    You will be very welcome on the comedy circuit, Sarah

  55. 55
    "Sex, Lies and Audiotape" says:

    At least this time he didn’t blame his wife.
    The Murdoch Press is a better villain.
    This story would make a great movie starring Hugh Grant and Scarlett Johansen. All we need now is a happy ending.

  56. 56
    Nick Clegg says:

    He’s an embarrassment to our party. He only groped one woman, she was close to his own age and she consented!

  57. 57
    spanows says:

    Looks a bit like Mr bean in those photos…and he’s always been bit of a comedian, not intentionally though.

  58. 58
    The BBC says:

    Stop cheeking your betters and make sure you pay your licence fees, you filthy proles. Don’t make us send the boys round.

  59. 59
    Brian says:

    If I follow his logic correctly. If the papers had not interfered he would still be with the missus and bonking the mistress.

    This seems like a harsher punishment than prison.

    Right Full Rudder says:

    MacShane next. I hope the jailhouse queens have plenty of soap left to drop.

    Mark D. says:

    Odd, though, that the ‘Guardian’ has put Huhne’s new column under the ‘Comment is Free’ banner: shouldn’t he be printed under the title ‘Points of View’…?

  63. 63
    Nemesis says:

    It beggars belief that this self proclaimed lying bastard is blaming the press for his downfall. He comes acroos as a toadying, onboxious creep. However, the best thing about the Lib Dems losing him as a minister is less wind turbines on beautiful landscapes. The trouble is we’re now saddled with another Liberal prat – Nck Boles.

  64. 64
    AllMPsaretwatsandliers says:

    Oh…so all scousers are victims ?

  65. 65
    Another Psychiatrist says:

    But he’s still a quack.

    Tojo says:

    What worries me is that this Proven Criminal was part of the Lib Dem Team supposedly helping run This Country and part of a Government we expect to be Honourable People… all part of the Labour model of lowering standards.

  68. 68
    PC Dixon says:

    Cos he’s a lying, dishonest creep and now ex-con desperate to push all blame onto others – Hasn’t he got the message that people just don’t like him. Insufferable bastard.

  69. 69
    Morgan's Organ says:

    INFAMY, INFAMY…….Carry on Huhne!

    superman says:

    Given that Murdoch incites criminality this is small beer. When do Murdochs journalists finally appear in court?

  71. 71
    Nogbad the Bad says:

    This makes depressing reading, and the others are probably no better.

  72. 72
    Displaced Brummie says:

    Oddly enough the only person I knew who joined the Liberal Democrats was an adulterous piece of shit, too.

  73. 73
    Heil Murdoch says:

    he did the crime and I think he’s a shit but if he hadn’t opposed sky it would NOT have come out,I don’t think the people on this site and I’ve checked others get it .Murdoch who is no Maxwell or Black is too smart for us

  74. 74
    Hamish Macbeth says:

    “””The Crown Prosecution Service loves a celebrity trial””

    Errrr I bet they don’t !!!!!!!!!

    I bet they think – shit the world of media will be all over this ….. we will have to throw extra resources and extra bodies at fighting this “two bit” job that most ordinary people would have held their hands up to months ago …

    We can’t expect an early guilty plea to help our statistics …. but a long drawn out process which won’t help our stats and will divert resources from elsewhere ……

    At a time when courts, prisons, the cps and police are facing austerity and cuts – and trying to do “more with less” …. Huhne holding his hands up early on would have done everyone a favour and saved taxpayers cash

  75. 75
    Tom Catesby says:

    Why are wasting time on this Huhne rubbish?
    Why am I?
