Good morning. Sunday. A great day Sunday and great news awaiting me over on the forum.
Up at 0500, I read that Sarah: Maid of Albion would be delivering the first in a new series of essays by her at 10:00 today. No pressure here then Sarah:)
Now anyone who knows how good Sarah is at illuminating the truth in an interesting manner, will be looking forward to it, as am I. But for me, it meant I was able to stand down, work on other things, just surf the net and generally get up to mischief without feeling a duty to write.
But we need something to do until the article arrives, so I thought we might have a poll on what sort of sentence, the ignoble Lord Ahmed will receive later this month, when he is sentenced for causing death by dangerous driving.
An offence to which he has already pleaded guilty to after admitting to the sending and receiving of a series of text messages to a reporter, whilst driving in the dark at more than 60 mph.
Looking at a couple of previous cases of a similar nature, I find that a Phillippa Curtis was sentenced to 21 months and banned from driving for three years for texting a message whilst driving that led to the death of another driver.
I find that Rachel Begg, driving at 70mph received 4 years for also texting a message just prior to killing a 64 year old grandmother.
Those are just two cases I found within minutes of commencing a search for previous cases involving deaths brought about as a result of a person sending text messages while driving. I am sure there are many more.
In fact so serious do the courts consider this crime, that the Lord Chief Justice has stated that new tougher penalties be imposed on:
Motorists who read or write text messages on a mobile phone could face jail sentences of up to seven years if they cause a death, under new guidelines from a sentencing watchdog today.So with that in mind, what sort of sentence do you think this killer Lord will receive for his crime. Leave a comment and tell us but do the poll on the right first.
Personally, I think he will walk. As did the corrupt Lords who accepted bribes to change the laws of our land. I mean the "establishment" would not want Ahmed's Army, storming the prison to release him, would they.
Another classic example, over on my kinsman's site, Unrepentant British Nationalism about how the BBC handled the reporting of an inflammatory statement made by Lord Ahmed. Well spotted brother.
