Huhne to make comeback as Lib Dem Leader.

Remember the story we ran recently about the rumour going round Westminster that Chris Huhne is all set to be cleared of all charges in the New Year?

Well, it seems to have struck a chord.

So much so that the former Energy Secretary is now being tipped to not just return but to take over as Leader from Nick Clegg.

Simon Hughes has admitted that the "chatter" about ousting Cleggers is growing and many are now looking towards Huhne as the ideal replacement.

One Lib Dem MP who wishes to remain anonymous told tbg:

"If Chris is cleared, he will be back in the game and I think he would be a rallying point for those of us who do not like what is going on in the Coalition."
