Well, you probably know the story by now. Not in some nation stuck in the dark ages, but a developed, Christian nation where equality is enshrined in law but not practised far enough.

Chris Huhne, Lib-Dem MP, although denying he was guilty of forcing his wife to take his speeding points ten years ago has voluntarily called the court in again and admitted what he did, and is facing jail for perverting the course of justice, with his wife claiming innocent under marital coercion.

Meanwhile his mistress sits in court with him. The one he left his wife for two years ago after he blurred the cut off point between one relationship and another.

More proof that you never, ever trust a politician and that those that seek power oughtn't to have it.

EDIT: Also, Monster Raving Looney Party announce they are to run a candidate in the constituency over the situation. https://twitter.com/LoonyPartyNews/s...22851466326016

Chris Hulme, Lib-Dem MP, although denying he was guilty of forcing his wife to take his speeding points ten years ago has voluntarily called the court in again and admitted what he did, and is facing jail for perverting the course of justice, with his wife claiming innocent under marital coercion.

Chris Huhne (not Hulme btw) was once seen as likely next Lib Dem leader. He's no Jeremy Thorpe, though, is he? Not even Mark Oaten for that matter..

He has now stood down as an MP - how are the (once) mighty fallen. It's expected that a custodial sentence will be handed down.

Apparently Nigel Farange is making noises about the consituency too. Maybe C4 should produce a spinoff and put them all in a Political Big Brother house for a couple of weeks and let everyone decide from the comfort of their own sofas.

But text messages between Huhne and his son Peter, sent in May 2011 and declared admissible in court by Mr Justice Sweeney, revealed Peter put pressure on Huhne to "accept responsibility" for the offence.

Peter said: "We all know that you were driving and you put pressure on Mum. Accept it or face the consequences. You've told me that was the case. Or will this be another lie?"

Huhne replied: "I have no intention of sending Mum to Holloway Prison for three months. Dad"

His son asked: "Are you going to accept your responsibility or do I have to contact the police and tell them what you told me?" later adding: "It's not about her its about your accepting your responsibility to me."
A son ashamed of his father. I wonder how much this affected his calling the court back to 'fess up.

What's the bets he paid the fine. Then claimed it back on his Commons Expense Account?
