The Chris Huhne Affair

The Chris Huhne AffairI’m no lover of the Liberal Democrats, but The Chris Huhne Affair has left me feeling uncomfortable.

Most agree the former Environment Secretary made an awful judgment by swapping his driving points with his wife at the time, and is now serving a sentence for it.

What I don’t like though, is all the worms now coming out of the woodwork.

Firstly, Chris Huhne’s extra-marital affair wasn’t the first and most definitely won’t be the last. That’s something he will have to live with. Had he not had it, we wouldn’t have known about the driving offence.

But, others are now sitting in their ivory towers actually being vicious towards him and his ex-wife (and even his new partner) whilst not showing the best of human nature.

Why is it, we have to gloat at others downfalls? It’s not big, and it’s not clever.

A family has been destroyed, with both the parents of several children now in prison. ‘They’ may have got away with the swapping of the penalty points for a long time, but yesterday proved there were no REAL winners in the end.

The law is there for a reason and we should all follow it, but Chris Huhne and his ex-wife are not the first to break it. So, we should stop acting as if they are.

This isn’t so much about a former Secretary of State doing wrong, but ‘Chris Huhne‘ doing wrong.

The Police, Press and Politicians often break the law (you only have to pick-up a daily newspaper, or have followed the Hacking Scandal), but yet everyone is now an expert in morality – especially, the above three.

There is something almost evil about The Chris Huhne Affair with nasty comments flying around about this particular pair, and so what if his current partner was in a relationship (if true) with another woman? What has that got to do with penalty points?

Britain is unique in building people up, to only knock them down. I don’t often write we could learn a lot from America, but in this respect we could!

Chris Huhne and Vicky Pryce committed a crime and have now finally been punished for it, but let’s not judge them as if we are perfect.

Those with the horrible blogs about the former couple and their over-confident ‘we are pure’ opinions, should concentrate more on their own standards.

I’m a passionate campaigner for justice, but equally don’t get a kick out of seeing families destroyed and people essentially bullied by those who yet haven’t mastered the ‘walking on water’ thing.

This has been a… let’s not be a hypocrite, ‘View from the Bottom’.

Take care, Max x.
