We have watched bemused at the twists and turns. An MEP is caught speeding on his way back from Brussels, starting a train of events. This black barrister/judge, much had been made of that as new in England, was friends with one of both of the Huhne’s. As a judge at a case over perverting the course, Bricoe was suddenly arrested by the police… I didn’t know why. Seems an eagle eye spotted Bricoe altering court submissions in favour of one of the accused!

Briscoe disbarred for role in Huhne speeding points scandal

15 April 2016 By Chloe Smith

A barrister and former part-time judge was today disbarred for ‘persistent dishonesty’ in what may be the final judicial act in the Huhne/Pryce speeding points scandal.

The bar disciplinary tribunal found that Constance Briscoe (pictured) had engaged in conduct which was dishonest and discreditable to a barrister, prejudicial to the administration of justice and likely to diminish public confidence in the legal profession or administration of justice.

Is that The End?

Did I mention saga, long?

And plenty more….

    ‘Is that The End?’
    Well it’s the end of her career.

    ‘She has continued to maintain she is not guilty of the offences for which she is convicted.’

    “Briscoe was jailed for 16 months the following year [2014] for making inaccurate statements to the police, altering her witness statement and deliberately obtaining an expert opinion on the wrong version of her statement.” And now they disbarred her? What happened to our confidence in jailed barristers?
