Police Turn Up the Heat on Huhne

Just as the LibDem’s attempt to spin that Huhne was out of the woods was beginning to take hold, he’s smashed straight into a tree and gone through the windscreen, his career once again looking like a slow-motion car-crash. As Guido suggested, a thorough police investigation could not have taken place without getting hold of the taped conversation in which Huhne orders his estranged wife to partake in a cover-up, and the document she signed promising to support her allegations in court. A court order has now demanded that be handed over.


The Sunday Times are said to be “considering an appeal”, but that strikes Guido as somewhat unlikely, given how big a story it would be for them if these two pieces of evidence were the final nail in the coffin for the slippery Secretary of State. Sources have suggested that the wind has once again changed direction and doubts about Huhne’s future in government have returned to mid May-levels. Olly Grender has been very quiet today.

Quote of the Day

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.”
