Vicky Pryce found guilty

The BBC reports:

The former wife of ex-cabinet minister Chris Huhne has been found guilty of perverting the course of justice by taking speeding points on his behalf.

Vicky Pryce, 60, was convicted at Southwark Crown Court of committing the offence over a speeding incident on the M11 in Essex in 2003.

She had denied the charge, saying Huhne had forced her to take the points.

Pryce has been bailed pending a sentencing hearing.

    With family friends like Isabel Oakeshott, Vicky Pryce had no need of enemies. What a mess.

    Life is a learning experience.

  • Such a waste of talent – possibly hubris took over

    Don’t get me started on Isabel Oakeshott – I have seldom seen such self-satisfied smugness as she displays on the Sunday Politics (except of course for Janan Ganesh)

    The way he is holding the document makes it relatively obvious he is doing it on purpose.
