Harriet Harman gets off
Compare these two traffic incidents:
1. Deputy Labour leader Harriet Harman was caught speeding and was fined £60. This is her second offence
2. James Harper was fined £100 for making an “almost perfect manoeuvre” because it meant he travelled more than 20 metres down a bus lane. No one was hurt and no one was in danger of being hurt. There was no speeding.
Harriet Harman was caught speeding for a second time. There is a reason why there is a speed limit – it’s because it’s dangerous. Surely Harriet Harman should have received the harsher sentence?
