Huhne ex-wife is stripped by Queen

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

VICKY Pryce – jailed for tak­ing speed­ing points for ex-hus­band Chris Huhne ear­lier this year – has had an hon­our for govern­ment ser­vice can­celled by the Queen.

The econ­o­mist was made a Com­pan­ion of the Or­der of the Bath in 2009.

But in March she and Huhne were both jailed for eight months for swap­ping penalty points so he could avoid a ban.

For­mer en­ergy sec­re­tary Huhne re­signed from the Cabi­net when he was charged with per­vert­ing the course of jus­tice, and later quit as a Lib­eral Demo­crat MP and privy coun­cil­lor.
