Harriet Harman To Be Charged With Careless Driving And Using A Mobile Phone While Driving

Harriet Harman alleged traffic menace

At the begining of October it was reported that the Deputy Labour Party Leader Harriet Harman had been involved in a car accident and contrary to the 1988 Road Traffic Act had failed to stop and leaver her details. Instead the other driver got an arrogant “I’m Harriet Harman – you know where you can get hold of me.”

On November 4th Harman was questioned by police.

Today the Crown Prosecution Service issued the following statement: “The Crown Prosecution Service has decided there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to prosecute the Rt Hon Harriet Harman MP for the offences of driving without due care and attention and driving whilst using a hand-held mobile telephone in relation to an incident on 3 July 2009 in Peckham, London.

The Metropolitan Police Service provided papers to the CPS on 9 November 2009 which were reviewed by the Special Crime Division in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors.

An MPS employee will now attend a magistrates’ court in order to obtain a summons to be served on Ms Harman.”

It was the Labour Government that brought in the law that banned drivers from using hand held mobile phones in 2003, yet another senior Labour figure, like the Attorney General who breaks the laws they make.

Careless Driving carries a maximum of 9 points and a £5,000 fine.

Will Harman resign? Not a chance in Gordon Brown’s government where an integrity bypass operation is de rigeur.

Harriet Harman Questioned By Police Over Car Accident

Just over a month ago Deputy Labour Leader Harriet Harman was allegedly involved in a car accident while using a hand held mobile phone.


I’m Harriet Harman... you know where you can get hold of me

Harriet has been to the see the Police at a pre-arranged time to answer questions about an alleged incident where she left the scene of an accident in breach of the 1988 Road Traffic Act and was also using a hand held mobile phone.

A Crown Prosecution Service spokesman confirmed that lawyers were in discussions with police regarding the case and that they had offered ‘preliminary advice’ – but were awaiting further evidence.
A full police file is expected to be sent to the CPS next month, when a decision will be taken on whether to prosecute Ms Harman.

Will there be the usual closing of ranks and one rule for us and one rule for the Labour Party Political Elite?

More than likely yes if previous form is anything to go by.

Consider how Lord Ahmed was jailed for 12 weeks, but let out after just 16 days and this similar case reported in the New York Times ; quite simply one rule for the Labour Elite and one for us plebs.

Labour Leaders Backtrack On Cleaning Up Politics Promise

By Tory Aardvark

“But our democracy has been discredited by the scandals of recent weeks — revelations that have made me furious because it seems some people have been serving themselves and not the public.”
“So I’m determined to do whatever it takes to clean up politics.”

so said Gordon Brown at the end of May this year.

When Sir Thomas Legg’s report was published the wailing and moaning started; Brown himself was caught out with over claimed expenses of more than £12,000.


Another U turn this time on cleaning up Parliament

If the Legg Report caused a rapid U turn on repentance by the MP’s, then Sir Christopher Kelly’s report Read the rest of this entry

27th June 2007 Brown Becomes Prime Mentalist And The Country Sinks Into The Abyss

By Tory Aardvark

Two years and four months ago the cursed one eyed son of the Manse was a crowned Leader of the Labour Party and unfortunately for this country became Prime Minister.

Listen to the words he comes out in the video and then compare what he says with what he has done.

The economy ruined, reckless spending to try and stop the economic slide caused by his incompetence, selling the Armed Forces short, Lies and Smears against anyone who dare speak out against the Party and Dear Leader. The creation of the Labour Political Elite who are above the Law; the laws in some instances they have created.
From the whitewash to save the Attorney General to the latest cover up to protect the Redditch Saddleback, Brown his Labour Party and his Government are comparable only to one other country. Zimbabwe.

Labour MP’s Threaten By-Election Nightmare For Gordon Brown

By Tory Aardvark

More bad news for Gordon Brown as the expenses scandal continues to cause damage to all parties, especially Labour.

Mixed messages from Brown and Harriet Harman about the Legg demands have done little to cast Brown in a positive light.

There are allegedly 5 Labour MP’s who are considering resigning immediately and forcing by-elections in safe seats, apparently their Legg demands are so big that this is the most economic way for them to hang on their ill gotten gains.

The message is simple: if Brown doesn’t curb Legg’s retrospective cap, then he faces a string of potentially devastating by-election losses. “It’s Gordon’s nightmare – by-elections in safe seats in the depths of winter,” says one source. more from Paul Waugh

When will MP’s of all parties wake up and do themselves some favours instead of clutching on to money they should never claimed for.

Labour MP’s Expenses And The Dawn Of Realisation

By Tory Aardvark

All together now The people's flag is deepest red......

All together now The people's flag is deepest red......

Gordon Brown and Harriet Harman are at odds with their MP’s expenses and Sir Thomas Legg’s findings.

The murmurings of bank bench discontent and revolt are stirring again with Alan Simpson the Labour MP for Nottingham South saying that if ordered by a Court he would only pay back £500.

Simpson then goes on to say that Brown has “rolled over” on expenses and the real leadership on the problem is coming from Harriet “You Know Who I Am Harman” Harman

The rebel MP added that even loyal Labour members – like those who criticized Brown at the party’s meeting on Monday night – were beginning to realise that the PM would sacrifice anyone and anything to keep himself in Number 10. more from Lobby Dog

So finally the Labour party is waking up to what the country already knows, Brown will do anything to hang on to the Prime Mentalist’s job and the only way to get rid of him is to prise his cold blue fingers off the keys to No 10

Harriet What Have You Done?

By Tory Aardvark

The patron saint of equality could well have made the single biggest mistake of her career today, well if we had a government with honesty and integrity it would be a mistake. With this current government personified by spineless leadership, white wash and cover up, it will probably not matter one iota.

“According to police sources, Ms Harman is being investigated for driving without due care and attention, driving while illegally using a mobile phone and failing to stop after an accident, the most serious of the three offences”. more from James Millbank in The Mail

What sort of investigation can we expect? Will it be the sort of high speed white wash that has been attempted with the Attorney General?

Lord Ahmed

Lord Ahmed

Then there is the case of Labour Peer Lord Ahmed.

Jailing Lord Ahmed for 12 weeks, Mr Justice Wilkie said he had considered a suspended term because the dangerous driving had not caused the crash. But he added: ‘It is of the greatest importance people realise what a serious offence dangerous driving of this type is.

Martin Gombar died after being hit by a car driven by Lord Ahmed

Mr Justice Wilkie :”By reason of the prolonged, deliberate, repeated and highly dangerous driving, only a custodial sentence can be justified.

He said Ahmed, whom he banned from driving for a year, “must serve half the term before being released“. Full story in The Mail

Ahmed should have served half the sentence which is 42 days, he was released after just 16 days.

Labour Lies and Smears start afresh

By Tory Aardvark

Earlier on today we blogged about the possible glorious return of Damain McBride to the Labour Party’s smear and lies machine.
Latest news looks like there could be more than a grain of truth in this.

Deputy Labour Leader Harriet Harman in her speech today made references to David Cameron giving fox hunting to everyone, following on from this class war howler, she turned on George Osborne and said “He would do away with Surestart and replace it with a lap dancing club in every community”

Scantily Clad Harpie

Georger Osborne was a target for sex smears in the Labour Smeargate campaign orchestrated by Draper, Collins and McBride.

Harman is now trying to write this off as a joke, but consider this you are deputy leader of a party that has been abandoned by a newspaper that has supported you for 12 years, Leader’s make or break speech “Gulags for Slags” has crashed and burned, and even the grand dame of Labour propaganda Tuscan property magnate Polly Toynbee says it’s all over.

What have Harman and Labour got left to lose?
