Sources: Sunday Times & Mail on Sunday Have "Confession"

Guido understands that both the Sunday Times and the Mail on Sunday have evidence that is not in the form of a “sworn affidavit” as was claimed yesterday by rivals the Telegraph. It is nevertheless evidence from Vicky Pryce that gave the respective papers’ lawyers confidence to allow them to assert that Chris Huhne perverted the course of justice. A serious charge…

Today in the Daily Telegraph the same journalist, Mark Hughes, claims a police source says Vicky Pryce did not confirm claims she has previously made about taking her husband’s penalty points. It was Mark Hughes however who made the claim about a “sworn affidavit” and wrote yesterday in the Telegraph that it was “the likelihood that Miss Pryce told detectives that she took penalty points on behalf of her former husband when she was interviewed on Tuesday.”  An about turn in 24 hours…

Given the existence of her evidence, if it is true that Vicky Pryce has declined to assist the police, the police will almost certainly obtain a Court Order for the evidence from the newspapers. Not long now...

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
