Huhne pleads guilty

Mirror 003-huh.jpg

Flashback to 4 February 2012 - exactly a year to the day ... Huhne is cited in the Mirror, calling the Crown Prosecution Service's decision to press charges "deeply regrettable". He stressed that he would be staying on as an MP, declaring: "I am innocent of these charges and I intend to fight them in the courts and I am confident a jury will agree".  

Presumably, they'll bang him up, now that he is a self-admitted liar. The maximum sentence for perverting the course of justice is life imprisonment, which is not long enough for this man. But then, this offence does not necessarily mean that the offender does time. A suspended sentence and community service is a possibility. But at least he's resigned from parliament. I wonder which euro-consultancy he'll get.

And now we have a "louse and flea" by-election.
