Autonomous Mind ruminates on the worst possible energy minister we could possibly have – until the next one. Even those of us who knew Cameron was going to be bad have been stunned by his choice of Huhne to do the job – a man who is as incompetent in his day job as he is tawdry in his private life.
Normal people who behaved like this man would be ashamed to show their faces in public. But this is the political class and anything goes. So up he pops, now as the great political guru, and he gets a hearing. It is no wonder people are switching off from politics big time.
