Harriet Harman gets £350 fine and cheats the law?

Why is it still one law for us and another law for them? Harriet Harman has got away with a £350 fine and 3 points for driving without due care and attention. What happened to the charges of leaving the scene, or driving whilst on the phone? Could it have anything to do with the points she would have received? Failing to give particulars or to report an accident within 24 hours gets you 5-10 points. Driving without due care and attention gets you 3-9 points. Using a mobile phone gets 3 points. Don't forget she has already been caught speeding three times. She was caught doing 99mph (not 100 - how lucky can you get?) en route to Bristol in 2003, and clocked up another three points on her license in both 2007 and 2008.

From the Guardian: The court heard that she already has six penalty points on her licence after being caught twice speeding in a 30mph zone. The first speeding incident happened in April 2007 and the second in April 2008. Motorists who accumulate 12 points on their licence face a ban. Harman now has a total of nine.

Lets face it, if it were you or me we would have been looking at a ban.

Surely not - you're just being horrid and sexist and you know it!

Nothing is fairer than the PLP (it's hard even to type that without ROFL).
