@ChrisHuhne Tweets

Just before he changed his plea to guilty, Chris Huhne suspended his official Twitter account. With perfect timing that very same account, @ChrisHuhne, is now tweeting again:

With over a thousand re-tweets @ChrisHuhne is reaching more people than ever before.

An insight into life inside HMP Wandsworth…

Huhne and Pryce Sentencing Sweepstakes Winner

Congratulations to @AngusCurran, who correctly guessed that both Chris and Vicky would be sentenced to 8 months. He wins a copy of Lee Rotherham’s “The EU in a Nutshell: Everything you wanted to know about the European Union but didn’t know who to ask”and a dozen I’ve Been Kissed By Chris stickers.

GuyNews Special: Chris Huhne “Going Down” Musical Tribute

For the saga in full, including how Guido hunted Huhne, click here.

Huhne and Pryce Sentencing Sweepstakes

Chris and Vicky have arrived at court as they await sentencing at 2pm. To mark the occasion you can win a copy of Lee Rotherham’s “The EU in a Nutshell: Everything you wanted to know about the European Union but didn’t know who to ask”, by entering Guido’s Huhne and Pryce Sentencing Sweepstakes. The rules are simple: leave your prediction – in months – for how long Huhne will get, then how long Pryce will get, in the comments.

In the event of a suspended sentence, your guess will still be counted. In the event of a tie names will be drawn out of a hat. Not long to wait so get guessing…

UPDATE: Guido will also be throwing in a dozen “I’ve Been Kissed By Chris” stickers for the lucky winner.

Huhne Fights to the Bitter End

Chris is a fighter to the bitter end, this is the email he sent to the PCC this evening:

huhne

From: Chris Huhne
Sent: 08 March 2013 16:10
To: Charlotte Dewar, PCC
Subject: Harassment complaint

Dear Charlotte Dewar,
My partner, Carina Trimingham, and I have been harassed by press photographers as we left and returned to our home in London today.
Under Clause 4 of your Code journalists must not persist in photographing individuals once asked to desist. We ask that you make editors aware of our request that this activity now cease. We have been frequently photographed over the last few weeks and there is no public interest in further photographs of us being taken or in the continued presence of photographers outside our home.
I would be grateful if you would make editors aware of our position.
Yours Chris Huhne
Smile for the speed cameras…
