Surely no one is surprised by the verdicts? Yes he had the balls to stand up to Helen but the police would never have dared push so hard against a sitting MP if they did not have have a solid case. The sheer number of charges spoke volumes.
I wonder though does the fact Field saw out his third term mean that he'll get all the baubles and cherries for life that are but one of the myriad of perks MP's get from the taxpayer? Free travel, free taxis, free whatever they get after 3 terms in office.
