Chris Huhne (Energy secretary) has resigned after the CPS decided there was enough evidence to charge him with attempting to pervert the course of justice. His ex-wife is being charge with complicity in the offence.

If he did it he's a huge hypocrite, didn't like him before this but when I heard he was being charged I have to admit to jumping out of my seat and punching the air with delight. :eek: :lol:

I bet the ex-wife hates him even more now. Hoist with her own petard as they say.

I don't think a reconsiliation (sp?) is on the cards :lol: They could both end up in prison, probably not the wife though if she pleads guilty probably get a slap across the wrists. Mr Huhne could easily get 6 months :D

Another trial, conviction and sentence by the news media.I don't like that. Guilty or not he should be entitled to a fair trial.
Having said that he's virtually admitting his guilt by resigning. If he's innocent he should be screaming it from the roof tops :rolleyes:

Totally agree, we hardly need a court nowadays as the media seems to be doing it for them

He's a politician....

A millionaire who became an MEP... then fought for leadership of the Liberals...

he lost that battle twice....
[irony] He's clearly a selfless individual who has no desire for power.. and is only
looking to help the downtrodden. [/irony]

Thank gawd the PM and his deputy told him what to do... otherwise he'd probably
have turned everything green overnight :lol:

Of course the country will now struggle without him in such a vital post :rolleyes:

It's difficult to believe he's innocent when the CPS have spent so long investigating
his situation.... but who am I to pass judgement on a politician.

But at least it will be 12 good men and true who will decide his fate

Will this be an end to the windmill tomfoolery this bloke has indulged in?

He is/was my local MP, we don't have much luck around here, a few years ago the MP was found dead in ladies keks with an orange in his mouth!

He's not guilty - he hasn't been tried yet. I can't imagine they would be going ahead without bloody good evidence though.

He had to resign as there is no way a serving cabinet minister can be taken at all seriously whilst being tried for a crime.

Given the his profile & the profile of the case, there's no way the Criminals Protection Service would even attempt a prosecution if the case wasn't already rock solid.

Anyway, as a scum sucking politician, he's bound to be guilty of this, or something worse:lol:

Innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. It is a central pillar of our society. If this gets screwed up by the media I will be really p****d off. You can just about hear already the positioning that a fair trial is impossible due to the adverse media coverage.
