There’s something mighty beautiful in Chris Huhne’s relationship with Carina Trimingahm. I believe it will establish him as something of a hero in the eyes of Britain’s younger, more macho male voters. Firstly his relationship involves a younger woman (a situation most young male voters will sympathize with).
Secondly he clearly has the “x-factor”: That rare and wonderful power to make his lover want to peel off all the old layers of her previous life for him, much as a butterfly might peel off its old layers to emerge from its chrysalis.
Such power will resonate very well with younger, more macho male voters in Eastleigh who will see him as a man with an enviable and peculiar power over women! In this he has raised his street cred to the heights of “cabinet super man”!
Thirdly Carina clearly has the same x-factor, sufficiently strong to make Chris Huhne cast off 26 years of his past all for her.
Surely this is love!
