He first swam out of the mire into my consciousness over the case of the Australian Holocaust denier. The one that Germany wanted to extradite under the European Arrest Warrant. Huhne popped up in the media shouting that this was an appalling injustice, Great English legal System, human rights, extradition evidence etc.
He signally failed to mention that he had voted for the European Arrest Warrant while an MEP. As, indeed, had all of his Lib Dem colleagues. Naturally so, for the leader of the Lib Dems in the European Parliament was the rapporteur for the bill. That is, the bloke tasked with getting it through the Parliament.
I thought he was a complete cunt at that point.
Vicky Pryce told yesterday of how she had always regretted terminating a pregnancy in 1990 after her husband said having another baby would be “bad for his career”.
Today she revealed that Huhne, the former energy secretary, tried to make her have an abortion on another occasion but she resisted him.
Miss Pryce said after arguing with Huhne when she became pregnant with her fifth child, an appointment was booked for her to have another abortion.
However, on the day of the termination she realised she could not go through with it.
He’s not going up in my estimation to be frank.
