The key issue now is how fragrant is the former Mrs Huhne.


very IMHO

None of whom perjured themselves and then brazenly said they'd "use the sword of truth" to destroy their accusers. They thought they'd get away with it because others, including Mark Thatcher had got away with corrupt practices in the past. The late Alistair Milne lost his job as DG of the Beeb due allegedly to witnesses in a libel trial being leant on by senior Tories. Labour may have done it and got caught, the Tories are past masters at manipulation and of course the old boy network can be used to cover a multitude of sins.


no they did other things instead

as for past masters: remember T Dan Smith? How many labour labour politicians did Poulson have in his pocket do you think?

T Dan Smith stated that he wasn't surprised at the corruption of members of all parties at local gov't level but that he was genuinely shocked at how cheaply they could be bought. The leader of one council planning committee nodded through a multi million pound develpment after he was promised a new bathroom.

Cannot see how they can get a jury for this now given the media coverage that any potential jurers will have been exposed to.

Other mistrials have greater coverage and get a fair second or third go.

Her fragranceness has clearly got to you as well.

Which?

And she hasn't been separated from Huhne long enough yet for that Lib Dem stench to lessen any. I guess some might find that odour pleasant.

Lib Dems still favourites for Eastleigh. Tories second, UKIP 3rd and Labour 4th at the mo.
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Can a juror come to a verdict based on a reason that was not presented in court and has no facts or evidence to support it either from the prosecution or defence?

yes: see http://en.wikipedia....ginald_Maudling In 1966, he had obtained a directorship in the company of John Poulson, an architect Maudling helped obtain lucrative contracts. Poulson routinely did business through bribery and in 1972 was made bankrupt. The bankruptcy hearings disclosed his bribe payments, and Maudling's connection became public knowledge. Maudling came to the decision that his responsibility for the Metropolitan Police, which was beginning fraud investigations into Poulson, made his position as Home Secretary untenable. He resigned on 18 July, to general sympathy from the press.

Oh dear. It seems to be contagious. Is the lure of talking to the media so great for some people?

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

A statement from a police officer read to the jury at Miss Pryce’s retrial today set out the fact that Miss Briscoe was not being called as a prosecution witness because she could not be relied upon as a “witness of truth”.

And she's a judge!!
And Vicky Pryce is now with Denis McShane
And Chris Huhne is now with butch former lesbian.
And the LibDem Election guru Lord Rennard resigns after allegations that he was a dirty old man.
And LibDem leader Nick Clegg said that he had't known about the accusations; then he remembered that he did
And the Leading Catholic Priest in Scotland resigns after allegations that he was in the closet.
And Tim Yeo chairs the Climate Change Committee and earned was paid £135,970 last year by three 'green' companies

Just where are Peter Mandelson, Cherie Blair and Sally Bercow when their country desperately needs authentic role models?

There you go again. For the record having got away with it after perjuring himself Archer couldn't leave it alone and wanted to stand for mayor of London - and someone put a stop to him. As for (sword of truth) Aitken he got his daughter to lie for him. How despicable can you get?
For the record Poulson certainly had Reggie Maudling who didn't do time whereas T Dan Smith did.

According to the Daily Mail the reason the jury were so apparenlty stupid was that only two of them were white - the rest were either black or Asian, plus of course none of them were wearing collars and ties. As the Mail is fond of saying "you couldn't make it up"

The alternative being a verdict given by a public-school educated freemason nodding in agreement with the policeman as he gives evidence?
