Under the headline "Carbon caluclator is the latest tool for keeping up with the neighbours" Chris claims that his Household emissions are lower than those of the Director of Friends of the Earth, Tony Juniper.
All very commendable Chris! Until one looks at the detail...
The Times writes: Household emissions 8.2 tonnes per year (USING ONLY HIS CONSTITUENCY HOUSE, NOT INCLUDING LONDON HOME WHERE HE ACTUALLY LIVES WHILE PLOTTING AGAINT MING)
The Times goes on to say about Huhne: MEMBERS OF HOUSEHOLD 5. USES DISHWASHER FOUR TIMES A WEEK; WASHING MACHINE TWICE A WEEK
So Chris would have us believe that there are 5 people living in his constituency home?
Is Mrs Huhne travelling up and down each day to her job at the DTI?
Assuming a clean top for each one each day is 35 tops, the underwear, and 5 beds needing changing he then expects us mere mortals to believe his house only uses the washing machine twice a week?? The machine must be the size of Dot Cotton's in EastEnders.
Come on Chris whats your carbon footprint when you include your muli million pound main home in Cresent Grove in Clapham? Or the foreign pad?
Don't try and jupe Mr Junniper Chris.
