Chris Huhne welcomes police inquiry into speeding claim | Politics | The Guardian. Huhne relishing reprieve as Police consider official investigation…..
Chris Huhne is tonight still very much a Cabinet Minister as Essex police decide to launch an inquiry into the speeding allegations and consider an official investigation.
It seems my comment yesterday that it will take more to oust Huhne from the Coalition Cabinet holds true! But the right-wing media is certain to maintain the pressure on Huhne through the story which has grown wings and legs in the national media.
The fact that the speeding allegation took place way back in 2003 is further evidence of the real insignificance of the allegation and shows the consequences of criticising Coalition partners.
