Huhne Out

Monday, April 22, 2013

Huhne Offers to Settle For £85,000 Discount

Huhne has some nerve, offering to cough up just £25,000 of the £110,000 asked for by the prosecution in legal costs. Given that his lies cost the taxpayer over £300,000, once again Huhne is sticking two fingers up at those he used to represent. Guido hopes he enjoys his day out from prison…

UPDATE: Huhne and Pryce are expected to be released after two months, with Pryce being let out on May 12 having served just a quarter of her sentence.

UPDATE II: Huhne could be out as soon as May 13.

UPDATE III: The following may be reported:

“In the course of the submissions made on behalf of Christopher Huhne that he should not be responsible for the entirety of the prosecutions costs application against him, the court was referred to the applications he made for witness summonses that resulted in documentation relating to Constance Briscoe coming to light, which led to allegations being made against her.”

Crime Wave Hits Parliament

As revealed by Guido in yesterday’s Sun on Sunday column, taxpayers are paying the price for a spate of thefts across Westminster. 24 top-of-the-range laptops have been stolen from parliament and Whitehall departments in the last year, with three more lost and dozens of iPads and BlackBerries either lost or lifted by light-fingered crims. Worryingly 527 parliamentary passes and 33 departmental passes allowing holders total access to the corridors of power have also gone missing, along with laptop encryption keys and security devices. The total cost to the taxpayer to replace all lost or stolen items has reached nearly £35,000. Confirmation of what we always suspected, parliament is full of thieves…

Evil Philpott Gets Life

Mick Philpott has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the manslaughter of six children, he will serve at least 15 years. Mairead Philpott and Paul Mosley were sentenced to 17 years each, of which they must both serve half. During sentencing the judge made reference to Mick Philpott receiving the benefits payments of his wife and mistress:

“Their wages and benefits went into your account. You did not even allow them their own door key. Everything was done for the pleasure of Michael Philpott, you had to do something extreme to get your own way and you did. The plan was to cast yourself as a hero on the night of the fire – it was a wicked and dangerous plan.You have no moral compass.”

There were shouts of “die Mick die” from the public gallery as Philpott was led from the dock. You can watch Guido debate Owen Jones on ITV now…

Welfare State Was Evil Philpott’s Accomplice

Daily_Mail_3_4_2013The Comrade Blimps of the infantile left are screaming this morning at the Mail’s frontpage splash. Philpott clearly is an evil man, nevertheless the fact remains he had an accomplice in the killing of six children – the welfare state. Welfare payments were his motive, he wanted a bigger house and the return of the kids taken by his ex together with the £1,000 a month bounty that they carried. The jury agreed with the prosecution that Philpott’s motivation was money, he was receiving £60,000 from the state and lost £12,000 when his ex left with the cash crop. He had no intention of working to support his children, he expected taxpayers to work to support him and his children.

He wanted to frame his ex for burning down the “too small” council house to get the return of the children she had taken and get him re-housed in a bigger council house. Philpott’s plan was a product of the twisted logic incentivised by the welfare system. The more children you can’t support, the more cash you are paid.

Huhne’s Lies Cost Taxpayer £333,472

Guido has been busy crunching some large taxpayer-shaped numbers this morning. After Clegg suggested Huhne should “pay amends” for his crime, by Guido’s calculation the bill comes to over £330,000.

Huhne took his MP’s salary for the year and a day after he quit as a minister, also pocketing a £17,000 severance payment. Using the average cost of recent by-elections, Eastleigh is estimated to have left the taxpayer with a £95,000 bill. The CPS say the cost of investigating and prosecuting Chris and Vicky reached £117,599, while the average national cost of imprisoning criminals puts Huhne and Pryce’s stay at Her Majesty’s pleasure at almost £40,000. A grand total of £333,472…

LISTEN: Guido on What Next For Huhne

Thursday, March 7, 2013

BREAKING: Vicky Pryce Guilty

Vicky Pryce has been found guilty of perverting the course of justice. A unanimous verdict after 12 hours deliberations. Sentencing of Pryce and Huhne will be at a later date. Let’s hope the judge takes into consideration that all this would never have come out if it were not for Vicky…

Who Blew Up Eastleigh Speed Camera?

Shocking scenes in Eastleigh back in 2009 as police hunted a “terrorist” who blew up a speed camera with a bomb:

spee“A LOUD explosion shocked a sleeping Hampshire neighbourhood when a speed camera was blown up in the middle of the night. Weary-eyed residents in Eastleigh rushed to their windows at 2.30 a.m. to find the camera in Bishopstoke Road surrounded by a cloud of smoke Police and firefighters raced to the scene fearing that the explosion had come from the nearby Jet petrol station, but on arrival they found the fixed camera had been blown to pieces.”

As far as Guido can tell cops never caught the culprit. Here is one clue though: the speed camera in question was on the very same road as the house belonging to a certain criminal MP with the motivation…

Tory MP’s Speedy Reply To LibDem Donation Begging Email

When the LibDems sent out their latest begging email for cash for the Eastleigh campaign, sending it to a Tory MP probably was not the best plan:

From: Paddy Ashdown
Sent: 12 February 2013 12:47
To: ADAMS, Nigel
Subject: Please do this today

Dear Nigel,

When we won Eastleigh in 1994, it was a breakthrough for Liberal Democrats. This by-election can be as well.

To give you just one example, a donation of £25 today will allow us to contact an extra hundred voters in Eastleigh before the weekend. Only Mike Thornton can beat the Conservatives in this campaign, and cannot afford to lose by a few votes.

Give whatever you can afford today, and you’ll make all the difference.

Thank you,

Paddy

Dear Lord Ashdown,

Thank you so much for your email asking me to donate £25 to the Lib Dem campaign fund for the Eastleigh by-election.

I have given your appeal very serious consideration and decided that on balance, a donation to the speeding awareness charity BRAKE is a more appropriate donation to make at this time and I have duly done so.

Thanks again for getting in touch and the best of luck in your campaign.

Nigel Adams MP
Conservative Member of Parliament for Selby and Ainsty

Gloves? What gloves. Broom broom!

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
