As far as I can tell the only real evidence the police have is the testimony of the ex-wife that she illegally took the points. As it stands at the minute she's in a no win situation; if she changes her testimony they will prosecute her for something (probably wasting police time) and if she sticks by it she'll be prosecuted for PCJ.
I'm guessing she'll stick by her statement whether it's true or not just to see her ex destroyed.
The more interesting question really is how long will it take for CH to get back into Government after he's convicted? My guess is three years but perhaps I still have a far too rose tinted view of our Government.
Hardly the Crime Of The Century is it. I wonder how many others have done the same thing?
Two dodgy coppers up our way were sacked for selling handed in firearms on. They have just had their pensions reinstated on appeal :roll:
I agree it's not even the crime of the year but (assuming he's guilty) CH went out of his way to commit a crime and I don't think that's the sort of person I want looking after the country. Worse, he's enough of an silly person that he got caught doing it!
Pretend for a moment that he's someone you are looking to employ, he turns up at the interview and you find out he's got a driving ban, a conviction for perverting the course of justice and hasn't long gone though a messy divorce because he had an affair. Would you employ that guy?
I think most of us wouldn't employ someone like that without very good reason but somehow it seems it's more forgiveable with politicians.
