Huhne and Price got 8 months each.

A Labour MP accused of lying to police about a speeding offence behaved like a politician when she demonstrated the “skill of not giving a straight answer” and being “flexible with the truth”, a court has heard.



In his closing speech, David Jeremy QC, prosecuting, said the MP had built a “dishonest contrivance” by “taking a scalpel” to the evidence and cutting out the bits that were uncomfortable for her.

He said Onasanya responded to questions in a way “sometimes attributed to politicians”


However, he said, even after making allowances for her busy life as a new MP, Onasanya must take responsibility for avoiding the questions from the police and telling “lie after lie”.

“What she has done, she alone is responsible for – starting with the very bad choice she made . . . . ” he said.

He said Onasanya’s alleged lie was “not just one aberration” and she could have changed her case at any time. “It was a succession of lies over many months,” he said.

The defence lawyer Christine Agnew QC, in her closing speech, . . . . “What’s she guilty of? She’s guilty of not completing the NIP properly. She’s guilty of not asking her brother as many questions as she should have done. You cannot choose your family, ladies and gentlemen. That’s a trite comment but she had no reason to suspect him and she had no reason to disbelieve him. Why would she put everything at risk for three penalty points?”


Nick Brown, the shadow chief whip, said in a statement read to jurors by the defence: “Fiona is a decent, outgoing character. She is bright, able and committed to her job.”


All of which is beside the point.  Irrelevant to whether she did, or did not, lie.  See 'Logical Fallacies'
