Chris Huhne – A Fool And A Liar

‘Liar Liar your bum’s on fire’ might hopefully pass through the mind of disgraced politician Chris Huhne when he is finally introduced to his new cellmate. After all, the judge at yesterday’s trial made it very clear that Huhne is looking at serving time, after he finally pleaded guilty to the serious charge of perverting […]

Mitchell v Police – Who Do You Believe?

Tonight, The Telegraph has been handed the full police report of the Andrew Mitchell incident in Downing Street.

It Must Be Apology Season For Politicians

It must be apology season for politicians of all parties.
