Could he just carry on as a minister?
There’s been a flurry of activity on the next cabinet exit betting market following the news that Chris Huhne has had another meeting with police and that this now in the hands of the CPS.
Paddypower now make Huhne the 4/5 favourite to be first out with Ladbrokes offering 2/1.
But how certain is a resignation if he’s charged? Couldn’t Huhne just say that you innocent until found guilty and just carry on?
I’ve no special information but my reading of Huhne is that he’s amazingly resilient and would not be surprised if he just sat on his hands.
He might be helped by the fact that on law and order issues Dave is in a weaker position than he was at the start of the month.
