The Courts are a bit like buses, nothing for a while then several come along at once!
The surprise move by David Chaytor to suddenly change his plea to guilty has a historical precedent!
Jonathan Aitken was faced with the same dilemma when he realised that to proceed with his defence would put his daughter at risk of prosecution for a number of criminal offences.
David Chaytor has taken the same way out as Aitken and many others have done before him. The crimes of his daughter, ought not to be expunged by the father avoiding cross-examination by pleading guilty at the last minute.
Investigations should be completed into his daughters role in this and she should be brought to justice too if she was up to no good!
What will happen next with the cases of Labour’s Greedy Pigs, Elliot Morley, Jim Devine, Eric Illsley and the Tory greedy pig, Lord Hanningfield has yet to be established as they are still wriggling and squealing! Or for that matter, the current police investigation into Denis MacShane and others or the ongoing parliamentary investigations yet to complete. Plenty more to come!
