This is just another case that proves the idiocy of our sentencing regulations. Although this case has still to be concluded with a sentence I do read in my local rag all of the people found guilty of driving offences. These people drive without a licence, tax, mot, insurance and will probably also not maintain their car properly. They then get a paltry fine, and points, or a ban. Why would this bother anyone who has carried out the offences - a ban makes no difference as they had no licence to start with, points to go on what exactly and a fine - well quick brain fart maths lesson for any magistrates would show that a fine should be very hefty to make up for the fact that the offender has not paid out any of the usual costs incurred by a law abiding motorist; this is unfortunately not the case and most fines I see are only a couple of hundred pounds!
What's the betting this Iraqi "George Micheel" (and his mate's eyes, obviously!) will be driving the mean streets of Oldham tonight, while Officer Dibble is out arresting people for calling a police horse "gay"?
