I was deeply embarrassed watching Chris Huhne being exposed Jon Sopel on The Politics Show. As a Liberal Democrat it was embarrassing to see a leadership candidate deny he had said something, have a complete lack of knowledge about what his campaign team were issuing on his behalf and then, to top it all, then make the allegations again.
Jon Sopel produced a briefing document with used the title "Calamity Clegg" at the top. this document had been produced by "Team Huhne" and had been sent to the BBC.
This sort of rubbish is an absolute gift for our political opposition and sadly shows that some people in Huhne's team really are not fit for senior positions. If they can produce this rubbish, seemingly without Chris' knowledge then it says a lot for those who surround Chris and Chris himself.
I would hope to see some sort of apology and people leaving "Team Huhne" camp over this because if not it says that Huhne endorses this personal negative campaigning or that he did know about it but lies on TV. Either way, someone has to go if Chris is to show the electorate and party membership that this is out of order.
You can watch it again HERE. Perhaps the Huhne team could be made to watch it 50 times as a punishment. When Huhne supporters make reference to their telephone canvassing campaign, I really does worry me what they might be saying about Nick Clegg on the phones !
