Green Chris Huhne undone by driving allegation – oh, the irony
CHRIS Huhne, a man who championed green alternatives, has been unstitched – irony of ironies – by a car. Huhne has resigned from the Cabinet following allegations that he got his then wife Vicky Pryce to take the rap for his speeding. She got points. He got off – not last of all with his mistress. The wife became an ex and the story reached the Crown Prosecution Service, which says there is sufficient evidence to prosecute Huhne for perverting the course of justice.
Pryce will also be charged with perverting the course of justice.
Says Huhne, who resigned as Climate Change Secretary but not as MP for Eastleigh:
“I’m innocent of these charges and I will fight them in the courts and I’m sure a jury will agree.”
What this all means is that the British coalition Government is deprived of a top-level LibDem politico. What effect will this have on our lives? The numbers have been crunched by the Anorak Policy Institute and the result is: none.
Note: Mrs Vicky Pryce is a Companion of the Order of the Bath. If it is proven she has fon wrong, will she be forced to hand back her gong?
