To see a representing MP throw in the towel for being a bare two faced liar.

Pending prison sentance......?yer right.!

20-1 he gets no more than one 6 months suspened for 50 years. ;-) :-D :-D :-D :-D.

Interesting that his wife is pleading not guilty and claiming coercion.
Surely that is mitigation rather than defence?

50-1 he gets a community order for 5 months.

And his wife's in court tomorrow.. What will she get maybe the same as him..yeah right..

Will believe it when I see it..

Just one thing after another :-(

But I suppose the security of the United Kingdom is not threatened like in Profumo days. All of these recent frauds and attempts to divert justice have been "small beer" in comparison.

Quite a good politico, but nowhere near as good as he thought he was :-)


Muffyxx Report 4 Feb 2013 20:00

How much has his lying cost the tax payer..up til last week he was trying to get it thrown out of court.

Hope they throw the book at him.

Lawmakers can't be Lawbreakers.

It makes you wonder, or maybe not, if they have any brains, but I think they are full of arrogance and think they are too important to go to jail.


McB Report 4 Feb 2013 20:21

Bet he's already done a deal re his " punishment ".

Hiya McMuff not spoken for ages.

It makes you wonder what them so called better than joe public got away with years ago, in our parents time,I bet somewhere there is a carpet ceiling high with what was brushed underneath it.


Plus hes been claiming our taxes for the past ten years of his lying for his expenses,,,,,,,,disgraceful...

What a t**t :-(

Nudged it up because another thread had been started.

But I have seen his wife today. What a couple!!! As my mum used to say, saves them spoiling another couple.


PollyinBrum Report 5 Feb 2013 15:59

His downfall stems from what must have seemed very minor offences at the time. I personally have no sympathy with him, but I bet he wishes he had accepted points on his licence and paid the fine.


Bobtanian Report 5 Feb 2013 23:33

seems that he had so many offences, he would have lost his led him to skullduggery.........with the wrong person.......

what's the saying?

how the mighty are fallen?

Jean Report 6 Feb 2013 01:45

he wont go to jail. thats why he has changed his plea to guilty. what a scumbag...


JustJohn Report 6 Feb 2013 11:18

There are a lot of people losing their driving licenses today because they have strayed over speed limit, answered mobile phone whilst driving, not worn their seat belts, gone through a red light a micro second later than they should.

Ordinary people are losing their livelihoods because they cannot drive and therefore cannot get to work (two shopping buses a week on a Wednesday and a Friday from my old isolated village in south Nortnamptonshire).

So what on earth was this chap's problem. Sure, he would have lost his license for a couple of years and press would have had a field day - like they did when Princess Anne drove along M4 at about 300mph ( I exaggerate slightly for effect).

But did Huhne not have a Government car at his disposal? Did he not have a big enough wage to taxi or tube or train everywhere? Could he not have claimed that all back from us taxpayers? And what man or woman in their right mind would have trusted Vicky Pryce anyway?

@ John. He could also have "Got on his bike" :-D


JustJohn Report 6 Feb 2013 11:27

Police hate MPs on bikes, Paula :-(


Muffyxx Report 6 Feb 2013 11:45

10yrs ago he was a European MEP so wouldn't have had the ministerial car at his disposal..but the rest of what's said I agree with....had he taken his medicine at the start instead of trying to dodge it he'd be well in the clear by that medicine is going to be much stronger...oh well.
