I don't think anyone really gives two hoots that he got caught speeding - that M11 speed camera is in a notorious section where the limit comes down from 70 to 50 and catches out lots of people anyway - there certainly isn't anyone on this forum who drives who has never broken the speed limit.


I have never ever broken the speed limit.
The mighty neo liberal steam roller that crushed all before it from the 1980s to the beginning of the new millennium has morphed in recent years into a Charlie Carioli clown car that now can not go two yards without loud bangs, smoke pouring out of the engine and the doors dropping off.

I have driven cars in different countries, including the UK, for 20 years.

His ex-wife obviously didn't think her vengeance through very well did she.

and you dont get 12 points for one speeding offence afaik. you get banned for being a repeat offender, a recidivist, someone who does not learn from their mistakes.

if the DPP thinks there is enough evidence to charge him, I'm happy to convict in an internet kangaroo court.

take him down!

it's also good to have someone in the cabinet who has the cojones to stand up to the tories.but go down he must
(if it is proved that he done what they said he done, being a pervert, that is)



You think theres a difference between any of them?
If you want a cheaper house, vote Labour in 2015.

Not got a lot of sympathy either, held a full licence since April 1982 (30 years) and not collected a single point.

Wasn't Huhne the guy for saving the planet, doesn't he realise what difference doing 70 as opposed to 50 does to petrol consumption. Bloody hypocrisy,

He is resigning: http://www.bbc.co.uk...litics-16866127

He should do time actually.

"To avoid distraction to either my official duties or my trial defence I am standing down and resigning as energy and climate change secretary. I will of course continue to serve my constituents in Eastleigh."


So still it seems to be fine to hold an office of trust, yet still commit acts that are illegal or immoral. What a joke.

edit: He has been charged! and the ex wife! (slow brain day for me)

So when the gantries 10 feet in front of you on the M25 go from 70 to 40 what do you do?

Huhne is in court for perverting the course of justice, not speeding. PCJ carries a maximum of life imprisonment.

I hope he rots.

Suprised that this discussion has not mentioned his replacement, 'Ed Davey'. Will this mean more of the same in the way of policy i.e. wind etc? He is Liberal Democrat so I guess it will be same as.
