In Britain there is no committee or tribunal to charge Huhne with his time at the energy department. He left power stations unbuilt and energy supply at risk, while pursuing an obsession with giving rich landowners millions of pounds of other people's money to erect senseless wind turbines. Let him answer for that.We are powerless against Maladministration. The political class, who have more in common with each-other than with us, protect themselves, confer a mutual immunity from prosecution. This is not good enough - we need a new law or a new tribunal to deal wit it - and to see politicians in jail for the right reasons, not the wrong ones.
The bar must be high for prosecution. Collecting unassailable evidence may take years; only after Chilcot, for example, will we have enough to prosecute Blair. The truth of the depths of Brown's Maladministration has not all yet emerged. The sanction must not be used for spite or revenge or abused by a change of administration. And it should cover the actions of the Speaker.
