    Maybe it's ancient history as far as the PV community is concerned but I expect a few of us will gain a crumb of comfort from seeing our old friend in the dock today.

    ***************************
    Press Association reports:
    ***************************

    Former energy secretary Chris Huhne is expected to make his first appearance in court accused of perverting the course of justice.
    Huhne is alleged to have asked his ex-wife Vicky Pryce to take his penalty points for a speeding offence almost a decade ago.
    His car was allegedly caught by a speed camera on the motorway between Stansted Airport in Essex and London in March 2003.
    Accusations of impropriety did not emerge until after the MP's 26-year marriage ended in 2010 as a result of his affair with PR adviser Carina Trimingham.
    The Crown Prosecution Service announced the charge earlier this month, leading Huhne to step down from his role as energy and climate change secretary although he remains Liberal Democrat MP for Eastleigh in Hampshire.
    Economist Pryce, who faces the same charge, will appear in the dock alongside her ex-husband at Westminster Magistrates Court in central London.

    Looks like he could get 12 months - which seems excessive.

    Not that I'm complaining.

    I hope his ex-wife does not get away with her 'marital coercion' defence.
    It was her that shopped him iirc and she does not appeared to be the sort of person easily coerced.

    Thing is if he got a prison sentence of less than 12 months he could still stay an MP anything more than 12 months he would have had to resign.
