UK: Huhne "the Hoon" on the ropes

Double demerits?

Looks like the UK’s dangerous and downright unhinged Energy and Climate Secretary’s days are quite possibly numbered, as he “does an Einfeld” by allegedly getting his estranged wife to take the rap for a speeding offence:

Chris Huhne’s career was hanging by a thread last night after his estranged wife agreed to testify that he asked her to take speeding points for him.

A close friend said Vicky Pryce would swear in court that she was busy all day in central London when the offence was committed 40 miles away in Essex.

As political support ebbed away from the Energy Secretary at Westminster, Essex Police appointed a senior detective to look into the allegations that Mr Huhne broke the law.

Sources said that if Miss Pryce co-operates and provides corroborating evidence, it is almost certain to lead to a full criminal inquiry. This could mean Mr Huhne facing charges of attempting to pervert the course of justice. [maximum penalty: life imprisonment – Ed]

A friend of Miss Pryce told the Mail: ‘She was working in London during the day and evening of the date the offence took place in Essex. And she’s quite prepared to stand up in court and say so if necessary.’ (source)

Maybe there is a glimmer of hope that the UK climate madness could be reversed if Hoon Huhne was a guest of Her Majesty for a while. A few years, say.

    This guy should have been removed ages ago on the basis of his treacherous policies. But that never happens. If this is the only way to get rid of him then so be it. Thank goodness for anything which can be used against these dangerous loons.

    Add to that glimmer a smack in the eco loon mouth by Lord Turnbull.

    It is regrettable that the UK Parliament has proved so trusting and uncritical of the IPCC narrative, and so reluctant to question the economic costs being imposed in pursuit of decarbonisation.

  3. It’s obvious that dirty tricks are at play here, whether or not the lie was real.

    My only issue with this is I like to see politicians booted out because of poor ideas. Getting booted on what is essentially a technicality doesn’t destroy the ideas people like this have floated.

    I don’t condone breaking the law, I’d just rather see the ideas fail rather than the man.

    • The Loaded Dog says:

      Have to strongly disagree BRC.

      As a politician with a substantial salary I would think his attempt to pervert the course of justice over a damn traffic fine was a VERY “poor idea.”

      Attempting to pervert the course of justice is a VERY serious charge and is there for good reason.

      Being a public official he should know better.

    More than a glimmer, Simon. It’s not going to happen.
