Huhne and Pryce – at heart, a very human story

If you wish, you can see Paul Staines and Harry Cole enjoying champagne while bragging about various betting organisations who are no doubt indebted to them.

I can’t remember such a dramatic moment when a cabinet minister’s future hangs in the balance, as this morning and the DPP’s announcement.

At the bottom of it all is a human story which has an element of Greek tragedy to it.

I don’t want to say anything that would prejudice a fair trial. But one does wonder whether Vicky Pryce may now be regretting talking (presumably freely) to her friend at the Sunday Times.
