The other Woman....Carina Trimingham

Carina Trimingham: former journalist who fell for Huhne


A former journalist, Carina Trimingham started working for Chris Huhne in
2007 as he mounted his bid to become leader of the Liberal Democrats.

With experience in both Fleet Street and the world of public relations, the
45-year-old divorcee was employed to advise him on his press strategy.



However as they worked closely together on his ultimately unsuccessful
election bid, their friendship developed into something more serious.


They are thought to have embarked on a full blown affair around the end of
2007 despite the fact Miss Trimingham had only entered into a civil partnership
with her lesbian lover Julie Bennett, earlier that year.


Like Huhne’s wife Vicky Pryce, Miss Bennett, a 58-year-old psychotherapist
knew nothing about the affair until the story was made public in 2010.



The couple, who owned a £700,000 property close to the Barbican in central
London, split during Christmas 2009 with Miss Trimingham insisting there was no
one else involved when she moved out.

But Miss Bennett’s family said she had been heartbroken after discovering
that Miss Trimingham had been having an affair with a man, behind her back.

Miss Bennett’s sister told a newspaper at the time: “I can't believe Carina
has been having an affair with a man. I had no inkling she'd ever had feelings
for a man.”

She added: “It was around December last year that Carina said she'd had
enough of the relationship. Julie asked if there was somebody else involved but
she always denied it.

“When I spoke to her last week, Julie still didn't understand why they had
split up. This will come as a total shock to her.”

Before entering into a civil partnership with Miss Bennett, Miss Trimingham
was married to medical practitioner Lawrence Woo.

The couple married in 1999, again at Islington Town Hall, but they divorced
two years later.

Huhne and Miss Trimingham went to great lengths to keep their affair secret
often travelling separately in order to throw reporters off the scent.

But in early 2009, the now defunct News of the World, got wind of the
relationship and tasked a private investigator with following the pair.

While a story about a senior Liberal Democrat having an extramarital affair
would have provided a decent story for the Sunday tabloid, the events of the
General Election in May 2010 sent it rocketing up the news agenda.

With a Coalition Government in power, Mr Huhne was elevated to the Cabinet,
taking responsibility for Climate Change, taking office on May 12.

Just five weeks later the News of the World splashed its exclusive story and
Huhne announced he was leaving his wife of 26-years for Miss Trimingham.

Given her broad experience in newspapers, including giving stories to a
gossip column on the Evening Standard, she may have been prepared for a negative
reaction in the tabloids.

But early last year after a series of unflattering articles she launched a
legal action against Associated Newspapers, describing a series of articles in
the Daily Mail as “highly unpleasant and hurtful”.

She said the press coverage had resulted in a "cataclysmic interference" in
her private life; and, in addition, claiming they were homophobic.

But in May last year, the court ruled against her ordering her to pay
£250,000 towards Associated Newspapers' legal costs.

Miss Trimingham is now studying for a law degree and is unrepentant about her
relationship, recently telling a newspaper: “Im just a regular person who
happened to fall in love with an MP.”

What a corrupt shower of tish we have running the country... I do think that considering the amount of cabinet changes since the coalition took office due to less than salubrious circumstance that it shouldn't just be we plebs who undergo checks on our suitability to enter gainful employment.

Corrupt B'stards one and all.

Chris Huhne brands Vicky Pryce a liar over abortion claims


The stage is set for one final act of retribution. Chris Huhne, according to
close friends, will use his last day of freedom to brand his ex-wife a liar.

Huhne and his ex wife Vicky Pryce arrive at Southwark Crown Court Photo: PA





Robert Mendick and Robert Watts

8:15AM GMT 10 Mar 2013




On Monday Huhne and Vicky Pryce, to whom he was married for 26 years, will
spend a final afternoon together in the dock at Southwark Crown Court for
sentencing. Both are likely to be sent to jail.


Huhne will take the opportunity to try to get in the last word. In
mitigation, if all goes according to plan, he will accuse Pryce of lying over
her claims - made during her trial - that he forced her to have one abortion and
tried to make her have another.


The close friend told The Sunday Telegraph: “Vicky Pryce told all sorts of
lies about him in the witness box. He will refute the abortion claim. That is
the plan. He wants to use the mitigation to address the accusations made against
him during the trial.”


Huhne, 58, has until now been unable to defend himself against the
accusations levelled against him by Pryce. By pleading guilty to perverting the
course of justice, he has never given any evidence in court.


But Pryce, 60, denied the charge - and as a result gave damning testimony in
court over two trials.

    of justice
    04 Feb 2013


She insisted she was bullied into taking her husband’s points for speeding in
2003 and to back up her claim, she alleged that Huhne had made her have one
abortion. She had refused his demands to terminate another pregnancy, leading to
the birth of their youngest son Peter.

Peter Huhne, 20, has also turned against his father, his hatred made public
in a series of text messages made public during the court case.

The family was torn apart by Huhne’s affair with his press aide Carina
Trimingham, who herself was in a civil partnership.

But the friend said Pryce had painted a false picture by suggesting it was a
happy marriage which had suddenly collapsed because of Huhne’s affair.

With his secret romance with Miss Trimingham about to be revealed by a
tabloid newspaper, Huhne told his wife he was leaving her as she watched a World
Cup football match in 2010.

Huhne and Miss Trimingham have let close acquaintances know that the marriage
was already troubled.

Huhne’s friend said: “The idea that Chris comes in and ends the marriage
while she is watching the World Cup is nonsense. It was already at the beginning
of the end.

“How can she claim they were in a happy marriage for 25 years and at the same
time claim he had made her have an abortion. They were not happily married. They
weren’t even sleeping in the same bedroom.

“From Vicky’s own description it is a pretty horrendous relationship. I am
surprised she didn’t get the champagne out and say 'thank god I have got rid of
you after all these years’. Instead she took out revenge and look where she’s
ended up.”

The friend said the series of texts between Huhne and his son had shown him
to be a 'loving father’ while the friend questioned how nurturing Pryce can be
if she was prepared to allow her children’s father to go to jail.

“It is humiliating for the children to see their father and mother go to
jail,” said the friend, “How can that be an advantage for your children to watch
their father go to jail?”

In mitigation - to try to get the sentence reduced - Huhne’s barrister will
point out that his client has now lost almost everything. The case has cost him
hundreds of thousands of pounds in legal costs, his political career and, even
worse, his relationship with his children.

Despite it all, claimed the friend, Huhne is relieved his ordeal is over. “He
is pleased that after Monday he will in all probability never have to see her
again,” said the friend.

Monday’s hearing may not be the end of the saga and there may still be
further political ramifications. Pressure is building on Vince Cable, the
Business Secretary, to give full details of his meetings with Pryce in the
run-up to the scandal breaking. Pryce wrote in emails to a journalist that she
had told Mr Cable and other senior Lib Dems that she had taken points for Huhne.


If true, it would mean Mr Cable had known about the crime but not told
authorities about it.

Mr Cable has denied the claims that he ever knew about the speeding points
until it was made public in newspapers in 2011.

However, one senior Coalition source said that the Business Secretary and
Miss Pryce were “clearly extremely close” and that she visited him “very often”
at his department, where she worked as a senior civil servant until announcing
her resignation in April 2010.

“She held regular meetings with Vince [Cable],” said a senior Coalition
source. “At times they were weekly. These weren’t necessarily one-to-one
meetings, but she was always coming into the department.”

A spokeswoman for Mr Cable said: “Vicky Pryce was Director General of
Economics at the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills and joint head
of the Government Economic Service until 31 August 2010. As such, she and the
Secretary of State met regularly on issues relating to the Government’s economic
priorities. We do not hold central records of such internal meetings.”

The spokeswoman said further meetings with Mr Cable and officials were held
after she left office as well.

Yesterday, Huhne received words of support from Nick Clegg. Speaking at the
Liberal Democrat spring conference in Brighton, the Deputy Prime Minister
described his former colleague as an “effective” and “outstanding” politician.


Mr Clegg said: “Whatever is going on with Chris and Vicky... not only was he
an outstanding local constituency MP he was also an extremely powerful thinker
and indeed an very effective secretary of state.”

Vicky Pryce, facing prison, shops for socks, radios and hair dye


Vicky Pryce was today seen shopping for a radio, socks and hair dye on what
could be her last afternoon of freedom ahead of her sentencing on Monday.

5:24PM GMT 10 Mar 2013




Pryce was seen shopping in central London with a friend before she headed to
Sainsbury's, where she browsed the aisles for items that could provide comfort
if she is given a custodial sentence.


After looking at radio and socks in the supermarket she stopped at a cash
machine before buying some rubbish bags and pocket tissues at a general store.



Tomorrow Pryce, 60 and her former husband Chris Huhne, 58, will appear
together in the dock at Southwark Crown Court for sentencing. It is possible
both will be sent to jail over the speeding scam.


Granting her bail on Thursday, Mr Justice Sweeney warned the leading
economist to be under "no illusions" of the gravity of the offence and the
potential punishment.


If the judge does hand out a jail term to Pryce, it is likely she will be
held in HMP Holloway in Islington, North London for a short time before being
transferred to a lower category jail.

    justice
    04 Feb 2013


An all-women prison, Holloway was once notorious for its grim conditions. Its
former high-profile inmates including serial killer Rose West and Maxine Carr,
girlfriend of Soham killer Ian Huntley, who murdered schoolgirls Holly Wells and
Jessica Chapman.

Last Thursday Pryce was found guilty of perverting the course of justice by
taking Huhne's speeding points on his behalf. Huhne pleaded guilty to the same
offence last month.

Today Isabel Oakeshott, the political editor of the Sunday Times who
first revealed the story, said she believed Pryce "still loved her husband" even
as she plotted to destroy him by revealing she had taken his points, thereby
breaking the law.

Mrs Oakeshott said: "For all her anger and desire for revenge, I was sure she
still loved her husband and wanted him back."

The journalist described how Pryce had showed her confidential documents,
hoping she would spot something that could be used to damage Huhne.

Pryce allegedly went through some of his bank statements and complained to
Oakeshott about his vanity. She said he once went to a stylist to have his
"colours" done and took the advice so seriously that he threw away all the
shirts and ties that were the 'wrong' tones.

Tomorrow will bring the pair together in the dock one more time. Close
friends say Huhne wishes to call Pryce a liar over claims that he forced her
into having one abortion and tried to pressure her into having another.

Re: You little Liar Huhne

By Martin Brunt, Crime Correspondent

Vicky Pryce has been found guilty of perverting the course of
justice for taking her husband's penalty points a decade ago.

A jury of seven men and five women returned their verdict almost exactly 48
hours after going out to deliberate.

Pryce, 60, looked open-mouthed with shock as the foreman told Southwark Crown
Court they had reached a unanimous guilty verdict.

Judge Mr Justice Sweeney granted bail until sentencing but warned she should
be "under no illusions" about what punishment to expect.

The former couple are now both facing jail and will be sentenced together, at
a date yet to be fixed.

As she left the court building, her solicitor Robert Brown said in a
statement that Pryce was "naturally very disappointed to have been
convicted".

She thanked "all those who have supported her during this difficult period,
particularly her children, her friends and colleagues".
Chris Huhne and his girlfriend Carina
Trimingham
Former Cabinet minister Huhne, 58, last month admitted lying to police about
who was driving just as he was about to go on trial.

His ex-wife and mother of his three children continued to protest her
innocence, arguing that she had been forced to take the speeding points against
her will.

She had to explain herself in two trials, after the first was abandoned
because the jury was unable to reach a verdict.

The former Government adviser told the retrial Huhne had bullied her into
pretending she was driving because he feared losing his licence would threaten
his political career.

He was an MEP at the time and was trying to get selected as the Lib Dem
candidate for Eastleigh in Hampshire.

Ironically, he was caught talking on his mobile while driving later that
year, which meant he lost his licence anyway.

To illustrate the senior Lib Dem's hold over her during their 26-year
marriage, Pryce told the court he had forced her to have an abortion in the
90s.

But prosecutor Andrew Edis QC called her a liar and described her as
"manipulative and deceitful".

"She is one of the most powerful, talented, intelligent and trusted women in
the country. She is not someone who could be reduced to a quivering jelly," he
insisted.

He pointed out that Pryce had not argued she was given no choice when she was
first arrested, instead refusing to answer police questions.

The points swap emerged only in 2011, when Pryce herself tipped off two
newspapers because she was furious that Huhne had left her for another
woman.

The Lib Dem abruptly walked out on their 26-year marriage in 2010 because his
affair with PR adviser Carina Trimingham was about to be revealed by the
press.

During Pryce's trial, the bitterness over their marriage split was laid bare
and angry phone calls - taped in a bid to trap Huhne admitting his crime - were
played to the jury.

Text messages between the politician and his then 18-year-old son Peter, in
which the teenager said his father made him "sick", were also revealed.

The court heard Pryce had told Sunday Times political editor Isabel Oakeshott
before the story broke that Vince Cable and his wife knew about the points
swap.

"Actually I had told Vince and Rachel (Mrs Cable) about points before when
the three of us were having supper about a month ago," she wrote.

"They were horrified at the time, but VC has probably forgotten it by now. He
was very tired that night."

She also claimed to have told senior Lib Dem Lord Oakeshott and the party
leader Nick Clegg's wife Miriam.

A spokesman for Mr Cable said: "Vince and Rachel have no recollection of the
issue of points being raised with them over the course of dinner with Vicky
Pryce on 28 January 2011.

"They have consulted their personal records, which confirm that the issue
first came to their attention in May 2011 when the story broke in the
press."

Miriam Gonzalez also said in a statement: "I have never ever been told by
Vicky or anybody else about the traffic points story. I got to know about this
when everybody else did."

The CPS said in a statement afterwards: "Perverting the course of justice is
a serious matter and the system relies on people being truthful to police. It is
important that everyone should act within the law - whoever they are."

What about the hundreds of thousands of pounds spent in the investigation and prosecution of the case? How can they justify an 'Honourable Member', a highly respected person, a Cabinet Minister with powers and knowledge mere mortals could never be trusted with, lying through his teeth to avoid points on his licence?
The arrogant lying toad should serve every day of the sentence awarded and made to pay every last penny of prosecution cost.
Undoubtedly he'll be out within 4 months, write his memoirs, retire to the country seat and receive a knighthood in the next honours list.

Vicky Pryce moved to open prison


Vicky Pryce has been moved an open prison after spending just four nights
inside HMP Holloway, one of the toughest jails in the country.









Vicky Pryce, pictured leaving
court following her guilty verdict, has told a friend that she is "fine" in
prison Photo: Eddie

By Hayley Dixon

10:30AM GMT 17 Mar 2013




Pryce, who was jailed for eight months alongside her former husband Chris
Huhne last Monday after taking his speeding points, was transferred to East
Sutton Park Prison on Friday, it is reported.


The open prison is in an Elizabethan mansion in beautiful grounds in the Kent
countryside and is said to practice a much more relaxed regime.


According to the Mail on Sunday she told a friend: "I'm fine." She added that
she was 'settling in' at East Sutton Park open prison near Maidstone and
insisted staff were treating her very well.


Other prisoners were shocked by the speed of her transfer from the Holloway,
the largest women’s prison in Europe, to the new Category D jail with 100
prisoners.


The 60-year-old economist is expected to be allowed out on day release within
weeks. She will only serve half of her eight month sentence for perverting the
course of justice over a decade old speeding offence.

A source told The Sun that she had made the move to the “more relaxed” prison
in “record time”.

"There won't be a lockdown where you have to return to your room by a set
time, for example. It's very different to other jails," they said.

It is believed that she was moved so quickly because she is a low-risk
prisoner.

Former Energy Secretary Huhne, 58, remains in London's Wandsworth prison, but
is also expected to be moved with the week.

The grade II-listed 15th Century prison provides farms, gardens and catering
courses and is described on the Ministry of Justice website as “a pleasant
mansion house overlooking the Weald of Kent”.

The website adds: “It holds both adult and young offender women in open
conditions preparing them for resettlement in the community.”

She will be able to wear her own clothes and hire a TV and use a
fridge-freezer at the prison which even has a rarebreed farm with 17 horses in
the grounds.

The relaxed prison, which once housed the Duchess of York aide Jane Andrews,
will be in sharp contrast to Holloway, the imposing Victorian prison in north
London once notorious for its grim conditions.

Holloway’s former high-profile inmates include serial killer Rose West and
Maxine Carr, girlfriend of Soham killer Ian Huntley, who murdered schoolgirls
Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman.

Whilst in Holloway it was reported that she was sharing a dormitory with
three other women.

It is believed that she was transferred to the open prison alongside April
Casburn, the disgraced former Detective Chief Inspector convicted of corruption
after attempting to sell information about the phone hacking investigation to
the News of the World.

Although an open prison, East Sutton Park's dormitories and lack of privacy
is still a far cry from her normal home - a £2.5million five bedroom elegant
Georgian townhouse, in Clapham Common, south-west London.

The move comes after her family raised concerns about her welfare, with her
brother George Courmouzis telling the BBC that he was “worried”.

He added: “Our family has no experience of going to prison. Physically, Vicky
is very frail.”

Pryce prompted the downfall when she went told a newspaper about the speeding
offence in an attempt to “nail” her ex husband after he left her for another
woman.

Hi Panda, I do believe this pair represent barely the tip of the iceberg as far as corrupt practices go in Parliament. Almost every other week there is a new revelation of fighting in the members bar, collusion with the media or a continuum of the expenses scandal. These scrofulous traitors are supposedly elected to run UK GB for the good of the nation, not use the opportunity to fill their boots... If you or I were to be caught out robbing our employers we'd be wearing HMP clothing, toot sweet. How many of the deviants we are paying good money to really belong behind bars? Probably the majority in all reality are on the fiddle.

Sad eh!!!

I'm glad I was born in the era of ration books, small fashion shops where they put a garment away for yiou and you paid so much a week until it was paid for before they let you have it. I don't ever remember feeling deprived because everyone was in the same boat, but our Generation, even now will not live beyond their means. "Credit" came about in the 50's to stimulate the economy but it is a burden most carry today.

Chris Huhne 'offered Twix bars and treated as hero by fellow inmates'


Chris Huhne, the disgraced former Cabinet minister, has been given a warm
welcome in prison and even received gifts of Twix bars, it was reported last
night.

Huhne, jailed for perverting the course of justice over a decade-old speeding
offence, has been serving time in Wandsworth Prison in south London.


The 58-year-old and ex-wife Vicky Pryce, 60, were each sentenced to eight
months but Pryce has already been transferred from Holloway in north London to
an open prison in the Kent countryside.


But instead of facing opprobrium from hardened fellow inmates, Huhne is said
to have been treated with some respect and even sympathy, the Daily Mail
reported.


A notorious fellow inmate, self-styled "Lord" Eddie Davenport reportedly told
a prison visitor: "You'd think he would be getting a bad time from all the men
in here, some of whom are very serious gangsters.


"But you would be quite wrong. It's astonishing. Everybody feels rather sorry
for him, plus he has also become a bit of a hero figure.

"That's because there is a lot of macho posturing in here and everyone sticks
together when it comes to a case, such as his, involving a woman who they think
has behaved badly by getting revenge on a man. That's how they view what
happened to him."

He said other inmates even wanted to have their picture taken with the former
leading Liberal Democrat politician.

Davenport, a former public schoolboy known as "Fast Eddie", was jailed for
seven years and eight months in 2011 for his part in a £4.5 million scam. At
least 50 companies were defrauded.

He said prisoners were being "nice" to Huhne "making cheery comments and
giving him stuff".

"They have also been offering to get him little extras from the canteen that
improve life a bit, like Twix bars," Davenport added.

He said Huhne had been wearing a grey prison issue tracksuit, and had a cell
to himself. It was believed that he was due to be transferred "somewhere else
less secure" soon, Davenport added.
