"But officer - It wasn't me".

I thought Mr Plod was the policeman (not Big-Ears)? It is some time since I read Noddy, though...

Huhne's ex reportedly believes that 'he drives like a maniac'. On the well accepted measure that someone driving more slowly than you is an idiot and one driving faster than you is a maniac: does Huhne ignore his position on CO2 emmissions while in the privacy of his car?

It's a Toytown soap opera - maybe call it WestminsterEnders.

Noddy Huhne is allegedly in trouble with regard to a speeding ticket. Mr Plod the policeman investigates.

But Huhne also had a bit of a strop in the Cabinet about people fibbing in the Alternative Vote 'No' campaign.

He probably did so because he wanted to show how great he would be as leader of the LibDims and take over from Big Ears Clegg (not in the picture sadly).

And poor old Cleggy looks like he will be taking the rap for the wheels coming off the LibDims bandwagon after doing so badly in the Local Gov elections and the AV vote.

What a tangled web they weave!

I saw 'Mr Toad' Huhne being interviewed after his outburst in Cabinet about the AV fiasco - and, quite frankly, I was none the wiser when he'd finished speaking.
I THINK the gist of it was that the 'No' capaign had said some things in a leaflet (not the Conservative-issue one) about the cost of the convoluted and baffling Alternative Vote system - whereas the 'Yes' campaign had been totally above reproach and were astonished that the British electorate could be so stupid as to think that the 'first past the post' voting system had an elegant simplicity about it.

One assumes that although Chris Huhne allegedly thinks wind turbines are 'beautiful' (quick, someone - get a planning application in for twenty round his house) - he thinks that speed limit signs are 'nasty'...
Oh - and that 'saving the planet' (by not going fast and using excessive fossil fuels) is for other people...

"Big Ears Clegg (not in the picture sadly)"

Sorry, Josh - it makes perfect sense, as I should have realised. Monday morning...

Meanwhile, more AGW hysteria from government ministers, faithfully and uncritically reported by Louise Gray in the DT (with no comments allowed, as often seems to be the case with her articles these days)
