    How dare you distrust the honorable Chris Huhne?

    The British Government and its representatives are always right!

    Now shut up and crawl under your rock before we bomb your Country back to the Stone Age.

    You….Youuu…. ARGIE!

    Rockhopper's share price seems to suggest some 'success' :-)

    I think Chris Huhne was looking to get a better entry price. All politicians are largely behind the times and inaccurate. Why I prefer meritocracy based gvt. Put the business leaders in charge!

    Huhne is shortly to be prosecuted for attempting to pervert the course of justice.

    He is a liar and a bunny hugging climate change idiot. He is costing all British citizens thousands of pounds a year with his nonsense. He will soon be gone.

    A politicians answer (particularly under the circumstances) he dosen't say much at all.

    exploration underway, initial disappointing, may change.

    The trick is in seeing what he is not saying.
