Is the change of plea to guilty the ultimate 'own back' on his ex. If he went to trial then she would have been required to give evidence for the prosecution. In the event, as I understand it, then the statement she would make in court could not be used against her in any other court.

So, with a guilty plea she wasn't required to give evidence so now stands to be convicted for perverting the course of justice.

Nice one Chris.

Where is Spider when you need him? Another example of just how stupid and corrupt these people are.

No, you just didn't include a link, a title detailing what this has anything to do with, mention any names or even tell us it was a news story. I have since read a paper, so now know.

Ah well, I assumed that as it had been in the forefront of the news for months that everybody knew.
Here's a link then

If it wasn't for the fact that all Lib Dems are lying sacks of sh1t then Chris Huhne would have something to be ashamed of. As it is, he's just another politician doing what politicians do.

How typical that though he has plead guilty today at court, he's been quite content to draw his MP's salary in time between notice of prosecution and today.

Poor Easleigh. Having experienced both Tory and LibDem for MPs, they might be wise to try another party!

True, but innocent until proven guilty.

There was another large sum of money (£17,000) he received after he resigned as minister. He doesn't have to pay that back, it's up to him.

While I and most other people knew exactly what this was about, for people who do not follow the news it would have been helpful to include something explanatory in the title.

What a sad state we live in.
Where there are homeless people (some of whom are not there by their own fault and could be given a home for a period of time).
There are probably violent attacks going on RIGHT NOW at this VERY MOMENT.
There is probably someone being murdered this evening.
Almost certainly somewhere, someone's house is being robbed.

All of these pressing and important issues, there is no time to deal with, but a minor speeding offense that took place OVER 10 YEARS AGO, manages to make national news?
I think this is completely pathetic and I want to walk into the courtroom mid session and tell them all what a bunch of pricks they are and instead of wasting our time and theirs, not to mention our tax payers money, to actually fight some crime, give real criminals real convictions rather than community service and take their family drama (which it is, if you read the BBC article, it's a family spat basically) and shove it because I for one don't care if he was speeding or not. There are bigger things to worry about.

Lots of people do what he did, MPs and regular people. Deal with it and move on to things that ACTUALLY matter.

Perjury is a serious (gaolable) offence. There is an allegation of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. If that ain't bad enough, was by an a sitting MP who now could have been deputy prime minister.

Perhaps wannabe boy racers might think about that should any try to get someone to 'take the points' for someone else.

No, but why not mention he subject matter in the op rather than leave people guessing?

I guess there are those up on current events and those who drag behind.

Over what, 3 points and a £60 fine? What a serious offense that is! If he had 9 points already he would have probably gotten let off without a ban because he would claim hardship from loss of license.

Is that some sort of dig? In this case it was a "wannabe man racer". tongue.gif

I suggested in post #12 that it would have been a sensible thing to do, but in fairness, I think you were the only one guessing.

Some members on here seem to be able to add the necessary link to the relevant story with no problem at all . Some like me have no idea how it achieved even though I have been told .

I tend to take the view that everyone is up to speed on the latest news and therefore are fully aware of what any contributor is on about.

Even me ! laugh.gif
