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!
