Video of the Week: Chris Huhne’s words come home to roost

Section:

The hypocrisy of the former Energy Secretary Chris Huhne is exposed

 

In 2008, Chris Huhne made the following speech to the Liberal Democrat conference:

 

“For every 100 crimes committed in Britain today, just 1 criminal will end up with a conviction in a court of law. That’s a 99% chance of getting away with it. And if you don’t catch offenders, no amount of threatening punishment will work.”

 

Former minister Chris Huhne should have held his hands up ten years earlier

With his resignation and change of plea yesterday, the shamed former minister’s previous comments now sound as shallow as the way in which he has treated his family.

 

Prior to the trial Huhne had called the police investigation into a matter that could have been solved so easily “gossamer thick”. If, instead, he’d simply taken responsibility for his own actions in the first place, none of this need ever have happened.

 

It is good to see that Huhne didn’t fall in to the 99% he chose to describe. Now it is time to speed him away to the cells.

  1. Chris Huhne speech during the Liberal Democrat Conference in 2008, was the most rational statement he has ever made in his political career. The Crown Prosecutions Service are compromising the safety of law-abiding citizens by being soft on serious criminals. Prisoners rights under the European Court of Human Rights have made prisons in Britain so comfortable and cosy, that the prison system have become a joke to serious criminals.
    Chris has committed a crime, but he is no threat to society. Common sense must prevail, he is not quite the Boston Strangler.

  2. I agree with Chaim Paddaman. Yes, he has lied, but there has been no real loss to others. (Unlike McLoughlin who lied and lies as a way of life and has cost his victims tens of thousands of pounds) While Huhne will undoubtably get a custodial sentence, he has been penalised to an even greater extent with the loss of his reputation, his political career and his MP’s salary. There will be a lot of schadenfreude over his sentence. But it remains – he is not a threat to society.

  3. I also agree with Chaim P.
    Of course, CH should have owned up to his offense much sooner but this does not change the fact that too much effort, money and ink are spent on insignificant offenses where despicable criminals get away with murder. Crimimals’ rights are a pest to society , the victims are not protected enough and the prisons have become a wishlist destination for quite a number of criminals and wrongdoers.
    vu

  4. Let me run this past Mariathena.
    The truth is in the pudding. Joe Arpaio is elected Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona.
    Sherrif Arpaio is the top law enforcement officer in Maricopa County, He is personally responsible for law enforcement in Maricopa County, including running of the jail, providing courtroom security, prisoner transport, service of warrants, and the service process.
    Sheriff Arpaio’s practices include serving inmates surplus food and limiting meals to twice daily.
    He also banned inmates from possessing “sexually explicit material.”.
    Arpaio set up the “Tent City” as a extension of the Maricopa Jail. On July 2011 when the tempreture in Phoenix hit 118 (F) 48 (C) Sheriff Arpaio said to complaining inmates, ” It is 120 degrees in Iraq and the soldiers are living in tents, and have to wear full body armor, and they committed no crimes, What about their Human Rights”
    Therein lies the rub.
