Huhne trivia trumps the major issue

So after lying through his teeth for years, Chris ‘Lhuhnatic’ Huhne has admitted his guilt in open court.  Very few people will be surprised that this vile man believed the rules should not apply to him.  Laws and rules are for the little people.

The media is now swarming around Huhne for the crime of perverting the course of justice. Without any sense of perspective it is greedily lapping up details of text messages between Huhne and his son to provide ‘colour’ to the story.

What a shame the media isn’t swarming around Huhne for his role in subverting the course of this country’s energy generation infrastructure and costs.  That is a crime for which he won’t answer, yet is having and will continue to have serious consequences for millions of people who are struggling to afford their energy bills and for this country’s ability to reliably and efficiently produce the energy that is needed.

Of course, our media isn’t interested in that. As always trivia trumps the major issue and the interests of the public make way for the media’s  masturbatory coverage of matters that are in the overall scheme of things are of little consequence.

    Just been reading similar on Dellers blog (where comments are closed incidentally) and I agree with you both. But in this mad country we live in, the media are not going to be interested in the slightest about the damage his eco-madness has caused. Mainly because they are by and large complicit in eco-madness too.

    People who live in glass houses shouldn’t discard their wives of 27 years. So totally served him right.

    It will be interesting to see what sentence he is handed. Bearing in mind that the maximum penalty is life. I’m betting on a maximum of a year at most.

    Huhne stated “The only proper course of action for me is now to resign my Eastleigh seat”

    No, he should be sacked.

    Would it be churlish of me to point out that it is entirely possible that some will have died of hypothermia as a result of policies he champions/ed.?

    I doubt this will, in any way, impinge on his conscience…..

    I just wanted to make my view known.

    Then again, AM, as I’ve said for years, character is an issue. Huhne championed Greenism because it furthered his career, just as he lied and bullied his family to defend it. His primary interest, above and to the exclusion of all others, was Chris Huhne, and he’s far from the only professional politician with that attitude. It’s important that we know the kind of low-lives who purport to represent us politically.

    I’m with Sam on this: it calls into question the character of the man, having broken the law and kept it under wraps for a decade during which he even had the gall to run for leader of his party. Even when he was found out, for a year he declared his innocence.

    I’d like to see a review of every policy decision he was responsible for.

    If he was so cavalier about the law of the land, just what other rules and regulations did he ignore to suit himself?

    Sorry to go way over topic here, but I know that you are in contact with Richard North. I cannot get hold of him.
    Could you ask him to put some sort of ‘email this to a friend’ thing on his posts, because I would really like to email a lot of what he says to my unbelieving friends, and at the moment there is no way of doing this.
    Thank you so much.

    Huhne was certainly in a position to influence policy adversely, but it wasn’t a case of them appointing him and watching in horror as he went off and ploughed his own furrow in a totally unexpected direction.

    We had all three main parties outbidding each other to be green and the Climate Change Act passed with a handful of dissenters. Cameron went off to hug a husky.

    Huhne’s a disgusting specimen, but I have an idea he was just the one who was caught, and as as for the real damage he’s done, well he clearly wasn’t acting alone.

    If Jeffery Archer got 4 years for attempting to pervert the course of justice
    by asking Ted Francis to provide evidence that was not presented in court
    I suggest that CH should get at least six years.

    He’s almost the flagship at this time for all that is wrong in out society.

    I completely agree. I made this point previously, but you’ve made it much more eloquently. The media, Twitter and most people generally are so thrilled that he has been caught out for this. All I see when I look at his dejected face is all the things that him, and politicians like him, have done to this country and have not been punished for. This is nothing. Comparatively, nothing.
