Guy News Flashback: Huhne Speeds Off Dodging Questions

This was Guy News “huhneting” three months ago. The CPS have again asked Essex Police for more evidence – this time emails from Vicky Pryce to the Sunday Times where she planted a “no fingerprints” story about Huhne. Unfortunately her fingerprints have now been found everywhere except on the steering wheel of the speeding car. We’ll get him in the end…

Lying Psycho Leaves Twitter Fingerprints

This evening Chris Huhne made the embarrassing mistake of broadcasting what was intended to be a private direct message. Clearly trying to plant a story not to be traced back to him. This is the man who told the police his wife was “confused” for saying he was driving the car that got the penalty points for speeding. Will he claim someone else sent this tweet?

His wife trusted him. You can’t trust Chris Huhne. Will the DPP make the same mistake?

Sky Go to Town on the Trinity Mirror Group

Further to Mark Kleinman’s whitewash scoop this morning, Sky News have been running this package, which will not make for comfortable viewing for Trinity Mirror execs:

In other news, it’s the first day of the Leveson Inquiry today.  Surely just a coincidence…

Mirror Review Whitewash Wonder

Trinity Mirror are set to announce that their review into phone-hacking has found that there was no widespread malpractice taking place at its newspapers, despite a growing list of allegations around Ulrika Jonsson, Frank Bruno and Noel Edmonds. An internal investigation whitewash? Sound familiar yet? 

Sky’s Mark Kleinman is reporting that:

“Paul Vickers, the group legal director of Trinity Mirror, told a meeting of the company’s board last month that a review lasting about six weeks had been completed and that there were no grounds for directors’ concern.”

This is despite clear allegations from a former member of staff at The People that, Kleinman reports, were not considered by Vickers. We know full well that the legal director had been made aware of the allegations in this letter from the Sunlight Centre. Add this to the fact the same former staff claim the Mirror Group’s HR department “urged colleagues to deny any knowledge of phone-hacking at the company on the same day that Clive Goodman was arrested in 2006.” Plenty here for the Guardian to really get their teeth into…

No Shame from MacShane

Given that he’s still suspended from the parliamentary Labour Party, and sits as an independent MP while the police continue to investigate his expenses, you would have thought that Denis MacShane would be keeping a low profile in Liverpool. But no, not only is he pea-cocking around the conference centre pressing the flesh, he has even had the cheek to appear on the Daily Politics.

Shameless…

Moran Leaves Court in Tears

Guido had to share this one. His heart bleeds:

This little piggy cried all the way home…

The Huhnt For Yellow October

The Crown Prosecution Service have told the BBC that the Huhne case is “still under consideration” and that no announcement will be made on whether he will be charged before October. After some speculation that Huhne was getting complacent this should put him back in his box just in time for conference. Incidentally Andrew Rawnsley is sitting down with Huhne for 90 minutes at the LibDem Conference next week and wants to hear from you:

“You may want to see him talk about global warming. Or you may have a question about the future of the coalition. Or you may have other points that you’d like to put to one of the most prominent Lib Dem members of the cabinet. What’s your question for Chris Huhne? It can be about his past, the present or the future. It can be about policy, philosophy, power play or personality. Anything at all. You have the microphone.”

Guido is happy to compile your suggestions and send them over…

£1,000 Reward for Operation Motorman Names

Guido has already pointed out the obvious failing in the Indy’s exposure yesterday of dirty tricks on Fleet Street. Despite apparently having the original invoices revealing who commissioned the murky and illegal goings on, the Indy refuses to reveal who were the journalists authorising the pay-outs to the über-blagger Steve Wittamore to procure illegal information.

Journalists face two years jail time for each offence. Some 389 journalists were identified by the Information Commissioner’s Operation Motorman inquiry yet none of them have yet been named or shamed never mind charged. With the papers clearly too tame, or too complicit, to do it, Guido has decided to put up a £1,000 reward to whomever helps him to successfully obtain the unredacted files and invoices that show the blagging hacks. It can be in cash to you or a donation to the charity of your choice.

It is reported that the investigators were preparing charges for conspiracy and they were thwarted in their intentions. Somebody has those Motorman files and has shown them to the Indy. If you show them to Guido, we promise the truth will out, nobody will nobble us, we will name and shame. Go on, do the right thing…

William Hague on Tony Blair…

“To the political law that you can’t fool all of the people all of the time he added Blair’s law – that you can make a very serious attempt at it.”
