Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman has pleaded guilty to an incident last year where she crashed her car whilst on her mobile and left the scene without giving her details.
She was charged with two offences of driving without due care and attention and driving while using a hand-held mobile phone. The punishment? £350 and 3 points on her license.
What a joke!
Failing to stop as Harriet did is a 5-10 points endorsement, driving whilst using a mobile is a 3 points endorsement and driving without due care and attention is 3-9 points endorsement. One rule for them...
But let's not despair Harman now has nine points on her license, only 3 more for a minimum 6 month ban, there must be an unhappy policeman on a mission to catch her again.
*My rather provocative headline was chosen not out of sexism but purely to wind up Harriet Harman just on the very unlikely off chance she happens to be reading this blog.
