The moment Huhne left the privy council

The moment Huhne left the privy council

It is one of the rarest pieces of correspondence in British politics - a letter resigning from the privy council. Chris Huhne became one of only three MPs to have done so in recent times when he pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice and vacated his Eastleigh seat. The sad irony is that the letter must be addressed to the Lord President of the Council - one Nick Clegg. Blogger and FOI enthusiast Stuart Long deserves the credit for bringing this document into the public domain.
