Huhne has some nerve, offering to cough up just £25,000 of the £110,000 asked for by the prosecution in legal costs. Given that his lies cost the taxpayer over £300,000, once again Huhne is sticking two fingers up at those he used to represent. Guido hopes he enjoys his day out from prison…
UPDATE: Huhne and Pryce are expected to be released after two months, with Pryce being let out on May 12 having served just a quarter of her sentence.
UPDATE II: Huhne could be out as soon as May 13.
UPDATE III: The following may be reported:
“In the course of the submissions made on behalf of Christopher Huhne that he should not be responsible for the entirety of the prosecutions costs application against him, the court was referred to the applications he made for witness summonses that resulted in documentation relating to Constance Briscoe coming to light, which led to allegations being made against her.”
