Day 4418: Bones in Car Park Confirmed as Chris Huhne


Today, former Energy and Climate Change Secretary and Duke of York, Mr Huhney-Monster, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice when he got his former wife to accept points for speeding through Bosworth Field.

Maligned by Shakespeare as a twisted schemer, the Duke – famous for his war cry of "more horsepower more horsepower my kingdom for more horsepower" – also asked for two counts of Princes in the Tower to be taken into account.

His rival in the Wars of the Rosettes Mr Tudor Clegg was unavailable for comment due to an uncontrollable fit of hysterical giggling.

Senior Liberal Democrats – and St Simon of Hughes, the new archbishop of Canterbury – expect to have the Duke taken out and buried in a car park somewhere.

A Liberal elephant was quoted as saying: Bother!

Richard of York is five hundred and sixty-one.

Tragically funny. Much-needed while I eat my own bodyweight in chocolate to cheer up.

"More horsepower" made me laugh - and the Wars of the Rosettes (though surely, unpopular though he may be, no-one can think Deputy King Clegg as nasty a piece of work as Henry Tulip).

Oh, dear, Christopher the Third.

"Senior Liberal Democrats – and St Simon of Hughes, the new archbishop of Canterbury" [snorts. Inhales chocolate up nose]

Top politicians that commit incredibly minor indiscretions like Mr Huhne and Mr Clinton, remember those wise words of St Milhous: it's the lie that gets you.

Or, more accurately, it's the lie and the multi-million pound / dollar investigation launched against you only because you're a top politician that gets you.
