    I think we should let Paris Hilton out as well. While we're at it. Cos she's, like, popular.

  • No - we should let her out because she cried a lot, and wouldn't touch a thing to eat. Poor dear.

    And remember what offence she was banged up for... that's right.
    The offence of believing that it is her inalienable right to drive the motor car whenever and whereever she likes, and damn any pesky laws which don't apply to her anyway. So there.

    Has Paris Hilton been banged up the slammer?

    If she has there's be a film of it somewhere on t'internet.

    It's like that film with that woman, and <b>she</b> had a sort of burning flame that meant that when <b>she</b> stepped into the flame <b>she</b> became inviolate and regenerated so that <b>she</b> could never die.

    I think it was called "The Woman That Couldn't Die".

    Yet again a thread is diverted neatly away from the topic, using the identity of a poster as a smokescreen.

    Personally I'd rather that than have yet another 60 page thread rehashing the same tired old ground, in which the speeding apologists accuse the rest of us of being stupid/thick/inane/narrow-minded and reel out the same tired old arguments that are no more valid now than they were 2 years ago. I'd rather not see folk I consider friends dragged into the mire of insult and emotionally-heated, puerile, playground fisticuffs that always results.

    Rothbook, do you mean "She-Ra, Princess of Power"?

    Blimey! I can't go and get myself a coffee now, gonna have to think about Anne Widdecombe.
  • Anne Widdecombe <i>before</i> or <i>after</i> the blonde hairdo?
    Your remark can be taken both ways Rothbook.
    Just like Anne in your current coffebreak fantasy.
  • Ravenbait's right. Sod them. Sod the lot of them who make 5 posts to a cycling forum, not one mentioning bikes, and will compulsively argue through 60 pages.
    We can laugh at ourselves, and make play on words. Something that these humourless, atmosphere-hoover people cannot.

    This thread does not surprise me at all. As I posted elsewhere I know lots of people who have swopped points to avoid bans. Usually wives taking husbands points but it does go both ways!!

    No doubt tabernacle\toomey\rothbrook thinks I should report them all!

    When will the penny drop that there are simply too many revenue cameras and they <b>are not</b> placed for safety reasons.

    Charisma vacuums.

    Like Will Self's quip about John Major, if he took acid he'd hallucinate grey.

    Anti-speed camera bods should join Toothless Eric and John "No Nickname" Xenophobe down the kaff muttering about unfair life is and how things were different before all these new-fangled changes and furrrners.

    The Krays only ever harmed their own kind, you know, nailed me to a floor once, cruel but fair, loved their mum, and there was a lot less violence during the war.

    Genius. Can I use this one?

    (For the humour impaired, there is usually rather a lot of violence during a war. That's rather the point of it.)

    Basically there's little point arguing with these people. They've decided that they believe the manufactured evidence and massaged statistics that 'prove' that lower speed = safer in ANY circumstances, and they use this as their basis for refusing to even consider any arguments that speed cameras might not be all they're cracked up to be, yet they continue to insist on ramming the point home with stupid threads condemning anyone that does 31mph (or 21mph now) as 'speedophiles' and no better than murderers.

    It's a bit of an exaggeration to call swapping points 'perverting the course of justice'. A bit like taking home the little sachets of soap in hotel rooms being described as 'grand larsony'.
  • rothbookrothbook Posts: 943
    Larceny. Stealing is theft. Points swapping is perverting justice, just like you perverted that cute long-eyelashed goat you unfeeling bstard.

    Point Swapping.

    Warnings have been issued by AA Business Services (AABS) to drivers who have been points swapping to avoid high insurance premiums or worse prosecution for speeding and possible loss of a licence. This practice is becoming more widespread with disturbing stories of employers putting pressure on employees to "carry the can" for their driving offences in exchange for a cash bonus or even just to keep their jobs.

    More common is the swapping between husband and wife or boyfriend to girlfriend explaining that the other was driving the car at the time of the offence when a speeding ticket arrives. However, some authorities now have cameras that can take a crystal clear picture from 2 miles away and if it is obvious that the driver is lying to avoid the prosecution he or she could end up in prison as a result of "perverting the course of justice".

    In January, a father was jailed for four months for perverting the course of justice after claiming that a French friend had been responsible for a speeding offence committed by his daughter. David Simmonite, 60, of Bradford, West Yorkshire, had hoped to spare his daughter, Stephanie, from receiving three points after she was flashed at 87mph on the A1 in Grantham, Lincolnshire.

    Police checked with the Frenchman and found that he was at home being treated for a kidney complaint at the time.

    The Home Office said a person who accepted points on behalf of someone else would be charged with perjury, which carries a maximum penalty of seven years imprisonment.
