Huhne's Evidence Confusion

Chris Huhne said last night that he looked forward to the Electoral Commission rejecting the expenses complaint “as roundly as the last one”. Guido isn’t sure the Secretary of State gets how this whole evidence thing works. This should trigger an inquiry to dredge up his entire campaign spending, including invoices to and from his friendly but secretive printers “The Itchen Valley Print Society”, conveniently run out of his constituency office.

Talking of evidence, Guido has yet to coax a comment out of Essex police on whether or not they intend to get, or are getting, a Court Order against the Sunday Times (and possibly the Mail on Sunday) for the signed undertaking in which Vicky Pryce is thought to say she will stand by the allegations she put to the paper if it ended up in court. If the police don’t get a copy of that undertaking, they can hardly have carried out a full investigation. Guido has reason to expect them to apply for a Court Order imminently…

If the stories circulating that the Huhnes’ kids have mediated the parental feud are true, and neither of them are being entirely helpful to the police, their silence or faulty memory won’t save Huhne if the evidence stacks up. “No comment” is the official line from Essex Police on matters that “could or maybe aid the case”.
