Labour MP charged with Perverting Course of Justice

Helena Lee (BBC journo) been live tweeting proceedings this morning.

Oh dear oh dear oh dear....

Her former Head of Communications, having learnt that a visit to himself and wife out in the sticks was on the very evening of the speeding alleged offence, pops up of his own free wiil as a prosecution witness to give evidence that she turned up alone and left alone.

After "Are you sure..." type question her brief sort seems to have sort of given up...

Amazing she didn't mention any of that beforehand
 
Clearly this is an MP of some considerable intellect....

Let me get this straight...

  • Her brother has already give a guilty plea to this offence
  • The alleged Russian driver was not even in the country at the time of the offence
  • A witness places her in the car at the time of the offence
  • She is still maintaining a not guilty plea
Jail time beckons I suspect.
 
Interesting I note the defence barrister asking the latest witness (the wife of the witness placing her in the car) whether she has been reading the case on twitter.

Wonder if they will be appealing for the case to be thrown out on the basis of an unfair trial?

Also small matter of Police having tracked location of both her mobile phones to the very location and time of the alleged offence.

And the witness cleary say she arrived and left alone.

IIRC 12 months or more porridge sees you out of the HoC.

A lot less sees you struck off as a Solicitor

Seems like a desperation ploy.
