Chris Huhne - choice of Polly Toynbee

A little publicised fact in the downfall of Chris Huhne.  In the 2007 Lib Dem leadership vote - he was the preferred candidate Polly Toynbee (apparently also a guest at his champagne parties).  In a gloriously patronising and ill-informed piece on the election, Toynbee wrote:
"Huhne is most likely to seize the political opportunity on Brown's exposed left flank. Above all, he is toughest on proportional representation, the party's one historic purpose - to reform British politics."
