Chris Huhne Resigns

“The CPS’s decision today is deeply regrettable. I am innocent of these charges and I intend to fight them in the courts and I am confident a jury will agree. To avoid any distraction to my official duties or my trial defence I am standing down as secretary of state for energy and climate change. I will of course continue to serve my constituents in Eastleigh.”

In less than thirty seconds Chris Huhne confirmed the end of his career. He’s standing down to spend more time with his simple sword of truth. Bye!

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
