Post-jail Huhne 'will champion green issues'
CHRIS Huhne, the disgraced former British cabinet minister, may devote himself to championing green issues when he seeks a career outside politics on his release from prison.
Friends said yesterday that while Mr Huhne (58) had not made up his mind on what he would do next, he could be tempted by work in the environment or international development sectors.
Other friends think he may start a "green growth" business.
Mr Huhne and his former wife, Vicky Pryce, were both sentenced to eight months' imprisonment on Monday for perverting the course of justice.
Mr Huhne – who is thought to be planning to write a book while he is in prison – has admitted he will not return to politics.
