Chris Huhne Takes A Ride

Here’s an interesting little fact about Chris Huhne that I thought I’d share with you. The cabinet Minister responsible for the Department of Energy and Climate Change, made 63 bookings via the Government Car and Despatch Agency between September 2010 and June 2011. That means Chris Huhne undertook 63 ministerial car pool journeys, complete with an unspecified driver, during a 10 month period.

OK.  Fair enough. Perhaps he was busy going about his Cabinet Office duties then. So … how many of those ‘essential’ trips, that the tax payers’ have to pay for, actually involved him carrying the ‘red box’ of his ministerial position?

Zero.

Ha! Nice to see that Chris Huhne is doing his bit to reduce carbon emissions then.

If there is something that really annoys people it’s seeing politicians swanning around in chauffeur-driven cars like they’re the Royal Family. In these economic times, when everyone is making their own sacrifice, this number (of official cars) cannot be justified. So the Conservatives will cut the budget for official government cars by a third.

Yeah. Right.

Oh, and the CPS will make announcement at 10am tomorrow (Friday) about whether Chris Huhne will be prosecuted over the dodgy speeding points debacle … or not. Fingers crossed then but I won’t be holding my breath ;-)

  1. If you go on the principal that all politicians are corrupt, lying, self-important and self-indulgent scum working for the biggest Mafia operation in the country then nothing is newsworthy except when they do something useful or unselfishly.

    Catch a politician actually doing something worthwhile and at some cost to himself and that would be worth a front page headline.

    • What George said.
      Public service ought to be about self-sacrifice, not self-interest. These cunts get a good salary plus expenses, yet – with a few exceptions on the back benches – still they’re only out to line their own pockets and secure their own futures.

    My guess is that the pompous, smug, arrogant little shit is hedging his bets … and totally innocent men don’t need to do that ..

    Do they ?

    However, knowing our luck he will get off, or just spend a few weeks in pokey…

    • I hope they make an example of the man.

      He is a self-serving arse who believes his own PR and that he can ride roughshod over everyone and everything.

      Point in case – the way he treat his wife (and by default his children) when he left. Now I know that these things happen and there are always reasons BUT to tell her during half time of a football match that you are leaving for another woman(?) is just wrong. A little respect ffs. Just about sums him up really.

    Good he`s been charged. His job should now be made redundant, as everyone with an IQ bigger than there shoe size knows “Man Made Global Warming is a gigantic LIE” it is yet another way of legally mugging us. The price of electricity could be cut by 80% and still big companies would make massive profits. Wind Turbines are a waste of time and money. How can a civilised society be dependant on its power by using weather dependant generation? Its Bloody Madness ! Good Riddance you lying,corrupt, greedy, adulterous bastard.
