A man who thought Brown was the Messiah and who completely screwed this country with his crap policies and who, on this morning's Today programme on the home service said that it had been 67 years since the Labour party won the 1945 general election.
Can we really trust a man who cannot count to run the economy any better than he did last time he was allowed anywhere near the reins of power?

You have to remember that a four-year sentence doesn't mean that he'll be in for four years: he'll get half of that off for good behaviour, and any time spent on remand will be subtracted from it. Then there is the wonderfull "oh the prisons are full, we'll let some out earlier" bonus to consider as well. The ban however will run from the date of sentencing, and will last absolutely three years. So when he gets out, he won't be able to drive legally, and a three year ban will drastically affect his insurance costs (as if anyone from Leigh Park actually bought insurance - or a car - anyway)
Not long enough for either of them though. Should have added another zero...
The only instant messaging I do involves my middle finger.
I know it's a bit of a not knowing all the facts comment but, as an ex-biker, I am of the opinion that it you kill someone while driving and you are shown to have caused the death by driving illegally you should lose your license for life.
