SeanT had this to say in a post on the "Political Betting" site on the day that a body found under a carpark was confirmed to be very probably that of Richard III while Chris Huhne resigned as an MP after pleading guilty to perverting the course of justice by persuading his then wife to take penalty points for speeding.
"Chris Huhne buried. Richard III exhumed."
I hope and expect that the courts will treat Huhne the same way they would treat anyone who wasn't an MP and who committed the same crime. I would have said the same whichever party he stood for.
