Chris Huhne injunction
Chris Huhne, MP, Energy Secretary, is in a spot of bother.
The gaff prone man has denied he illegally persuaded his wife to take speeding points on his behalf.
He is defending himself in the media and spinning his way out of an embarrassing situation. The pressure is on him to demonstrate he hasn't broken the law. The saga is not quite as simple as it seems as reported in the Daily Mail, but as a sitting M.P. Huhne has a duty of care and trust to uphold and the media are there to ensure this is the case.
At this moment in time, Huhne could issue an injunction against his wife and stop the media from reporting this. How would you feel about that? The fact he has not, as far as we are aware, means the media can pursue the potential wrong doing of an M.P. This is a good thing.
