Huhne Leaving Wife for Mistress Exposed by News of the World

The News of the Screws has the scoop

Energy Secretary Chris Huhne is leaving his wife of 26 years after confessing to a long standing affair, the News of the World can reveal.  Huhne, 55, has been enjoying trysts with his secret mistress at the family’s constituency home for over a year. Last night he told us: “I am in a serious relationship with Carina Trimingham and I am separating from my wife.”

Lover Carina, 44, is Campaigns Director of the Electoral Reform Society. Huhne, named by Prime Minister David Cameron as the 10th most powerful man in the Cabinet, has been meeting her on Friday nights at his constituency house in Eastleigh, Hampshire, while loyal wife Vicky stayed at the family’s south London home.

On Friday, on her 44th birthday, Carina took the train to Huhne’s detached home in Eastleigh, arriving around 8pm. The pair spent the evening alone inside while Mrs Huhne remained in London. Huhne was due in Eastleigh that morning to conduct a constituency surgery but cancelled it at the last minute. This morning the pair left the house separately, minutes apart, to head to the station.

On the platform they stood apart then boarded different carriages. As the London Waterloo bound train sped off, Huhne made a quick call on his mobile then joined his lover in the first class carriage at the front of the train where they enjoyed breakfast together. Once at Waterloo they began the cloak and dagger tactics again, walking 10ft apart and leaving by different exits. But they met up again at the taxi rank, jumped into a black cab and headed into the city. It is believed the affair has been going on since at least May 2009 and the pair are thought to have met when Carina worked briefly for Huhne on his campaign team when he was fighting the Lib Dem’s leadership campaign in 2007. He finished runner-up to Nick Clegg. Divorcee Carina, lives with a female friend in central London.

There is some speculation that Huhne, who led the LibDem attacks on the former editor of the News of the World Andy Coulson, might be regretting so doing. It is probably just a coincidence…

Quote of the Day

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
