Chris Huhne has announced he will quit as MP for Eastleigh in Hampshire after pleading guilty to perverting the course of justice, setting up a tense coalition battle as Conservatives and Liberal Democrats vie for the marginal seat.
Speaking outside court, Mr Huhne said: “I have pleaded guilty today. I am unable to say more while there is an outstanding trial.
“Having taken responsibility for something that happened 10 years ago, the only proper course of actions is for me to resign my Eastleigh seat in parliament and I will do so later today.”
Now just hold on a minute............
Why has this lasted so long?
How could he possibly justify drawing his Parliamentary salary and pension contributions since the day he was charged?
Has he not caused a monumental waste of police time and resources?
I expect Mr Justice Hangemhigh to jail him, fine him, award all costs against him. If he does not, we will require an explanation.
