    I have to say Alan, that, even by your standards, you’ve posted a mean spirited and petty minded blog.

    The man’s committed an offence, been tried and convicted, lost his job and served his time in prison. He’s come out and found employment in the area where he has knowledge and expertise. He’s paid his debt and is now paying his taxes and supporting his family and obligations and you’re treating it is a ruse to get a few pence off a pint.

    Here’s another senario; three years ago a senior police officer from Leicestershire Police, Gordon Fraser, facing the same traffic offences as Chris Huhne, rather than face the court went out, threw himself in front of train and killed himself. He left a wife and children.

    So really, seriously, as gentleman Alan, which outcome do you favour? Be serious, and say which result is the better?

    You do not make the world a better place by dimishing others. You’re a retired man, I suggest you live your life and blog about that, rather than spend it telling others how to live theirs.

    • I must say that I’m at a loss to see the relevance of Gordon Fraser. Whatever he did, or did not, decide to do is irrelevant. Do not be distracted by the rehabilitation of Huhne, at the end of the day he is a Member of the Public now, so maybe we members of the public should all be allowed to join him at the bar. If you’re so insistent that Huhne had “done his time” etc I can only presume that you also disapprove intensely of the way Ched Evans has been pilloried and denied employment. You are clearly entitled to disagree with any or all of my opinions, but I am entitled to hold them and express them. Calling me mean spirited and petty minded will not change my opinions, any more than I would seek to tell you what your opinion should be. Thank you for your contribution to the debate, but I don’t actually think it’s your place to tell me what I should blog about, that’s my choice isn’t it? If you don’t approve of them, simply stop reading them, I won’t mind one bit.

      How condescending to point out that Alan is a retired man and should only blog about that.

    You do not make the world a better place by letting corrupt MPs return from prison to quaff vintage champagne at the taxpayers expense.

    Any fair minded person would wish to see Huhne ape the more honourable – yet more undeserved – Gordon Fraser resolution.

    Unfortunately, Chris would still leave an unfairminded wife also earning a fortune again, pronouncing on other people’s financial matters on TV.

    You’re not a retiring person but I suggest you live your life in Tibet and comment about that, rather than spend it telling popular bloggers how to live theirs less angrily.

    Puerile, patronising and frankly (the comparison), irrelevant Keira.

    If you don’t keep an eye on these criminal politicians they creep back into the comfortable life they had before they were caught. Let’s not forget that Huhne told bare-faced lies for years before eventually admitting guilt at the last minute.
