More in tomorrow’s Sunday Times…
Given Vicky Pryce is demanding that the BBC did not mention the allegations she made against her estranged husband as a condition of her touring the TV studios to talk about Greece, full points to Krishnan Guru Murphy for sticking the boot in:
Wonder if she smirked like that in front of the police? She might as well have winked to the camera…
UPDATE: Krishnan also asked “The Donald” if he was wearing his own hair. He explains himself here, must be something in the water on Grays Inn Road…
Nick Clegg just told the Press Gallery lunch:
“Whatever people say about Chris Huhne, I don’t know any politician better at getting his points across.”
It’s almost as if he’s enjoying his old foe suffering…
Vicky Pryce is nothing compared to Elisabeth Edwards in the scorned woman stakes. As Elisabeth lay dying from cancer she recorded a deathbed denunciation of her adulterous husband John Edwards, the Democratic vice-presidential running mate of John Kerry. Edwards diverted funds from his campaign to his mistress. America’s only paper worth reading, The National Inquirer, has the scoop:
…in a devastating act of ultimate revenge, a dying Elizabeth Edwards recorded a bombshell secret videotape for prosecutors – nailing her cheating husband John as he will stand trial on charges that could land him behind bars for 30 years.
That’s the stunning secret behind the federal indictment brought against the disgraced former presidential candidate on June 3 -– following a two-year grand jury investigation into whether he illegally used campaign funds to cover up his affair with his then-pregnant mistress Rielle Hunter.
Serial adulterer Chris Huhne, like John Edwards, paraded his family at election time and also paid his mistress Carina Trimingham out of campaign funds when she worked on his leadership campaign. Vicky should take her lead from Elisabeth Edwards’ courage and thoroughly avenge her humiliation…
Essex Police have handed over preliminary papers concerning Chris Huhne to the CPS. There was a bit of confusion, and they deny the initial reports that it was the full file, but say they are “considering it”. Presumably they are waiting for the document Vicky Pryce signed saying she would back up the accusations in court. Intriguingly BBC sources suggest there is “a credible chance” he will be prosecuted. Broom broom!
Essex Police are still refusing to comment officially, but Guido understands that they are yet to obtain a Court Order for the document that Vicky Pryce signed promising to defend the Mail on Sunday and the Sunday Times in court over the allegations she made against Huhne. Why not?
The official word is that there will be no update any time soon, perhaps later in the week.
The document is a key piece of evidence to this case, if they haven’t made a move to get it yet, what exactly are the detectives up to?
PA is suggesting that Essex Police had a face to face meeting on Friday with the CPS to discuss Chris Huhne’s speeding points. The inquiry is on going, but the police must be confident enough that they have a case if they are actively seeking face time the prosecutors…
Huhne was out of the country last week, he might wish he’d stayed there…
Invited on to the Daily Politics as one of the signatories to the B-Team’s Observer letter, Vicky Pryce, aka the former Mrs Huhne to be, had to quickly point out that she hadn’t actually signed the letter. Though the researchers can be forgiven, she seems to be changing her mind all the time about what she may or may not have signed.
As with Sky News yesterday, Pryce insisted on a wall of silence regarding the current police investigation that she triggered, a deal of which her husband can only dream. She instead choose to give dire warnings about his government’s spending plans.
Guido isn’t sure she’s going to have as much success playing the ball instead of the man.
