New Climate Change Secretary

Chris Huhne, Britain’s Energy Secretary, has resigned from Cabinet to fight criminal accusations. On Friday morning (February 3) the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) announced that there was sufficient evidence to charge Britain’s Energy Secretary Chris Huhne for conspiracy to pervert the course of justice which forced him to resign.

The alleged offence dates back to March 2003 when apparently Mr Huhne asked his wife at the time Ms Vicky Price to take speeding points on his behalf. The episode was unlikely to have ever come to the attention of the police had Ms Pryce not brought it up during an interview to a Sunday newspaper last year.
