Unproven is not a verdict in an English Court

Mr Huhne has many influential friends in very high places. Expect Jan to come and go without comment.

Yep, with friends in high places, it seems you can even get away with (alleged) paedophilia throughout your whole life….

yes
Keep kicking it down the road till something happens that makes the issue irrelevant. Standard litigation practice.

An interesting twist in the whole saga?

Wonder if that means that she will have been questioned under caution and is a response to legal moves (or wriggles by the snakes) in his legal team? I can imagine there are several happy to try and take her down with the baby as it flies out with the bathwater - apologies for mixed metaphors smile

If she is slurred sufficiently, then her evidence by definition is tainted? And I imagine her evidence and statements are pretty damming for Huhne? Especially as she will add to Vicky's 'under duress' defence?

The case that just keep on giving? beer

This all seems very odd.

There seem to be a lot of gagging orders in this case.

A young lad is accused of making offensive comments on Facebook and it takes a couple of days to get him banged up. A wealthy MP is accused of PCOJ and not only does the case not get heard, but we are not allowed to find out why.


It is beginning to look like there is one law for wealthy MP's and a different law for the rest of us.

It stinks to high hell.

It is a valid point.
A few (very) off colour remarks and locked up for 12 weeks pretty damn quickly.
Looting in the summer riots, and justice doled out very swiftly.
Perverting the course of justice, months and months pass...
