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.
