    No, and yes, s'why sentencing guidelines allow a reduced sentence if pleading guilty and if truly remorseful a judge can take it into account;

    'fraid not, but if you are sorry you'll hold your hands up and do a speed awareness course, if you're not sorry you'll fight it in court, get points and a fine.

    For transparency I more irked that they allowed it to come out and be caught rather than that they did it, but then there's only 1 way 2 people can keep a secret.

    No wonder it's been a sh*tshow with this rabble, they've been either drunk or hungover continuously.

    It's probably been mentioned before - but I couldn't see it:

    Apparently nobody warned him the party broke the rules he'd written.

    I mean FFS, he's either a lying scumbag (form) or he's as thick as pigsh*t - both are grounds to ditch him.

    Not only written ( though i do doubt he would come up with the rules himself, he would just sign off on whatever was handed to him at the time ) but stood on NATIONAL TV to tell the public, Day after day, for WEEKS, seriously the Adverts were in every newspaper, tv ad break
    so remember folks, if you ever get pulled over for speeding the response is
    'im sorry officer, i didnt know that speeding was against the rules'

    Only works if you're rich or famous.

    Regular plebs get slapped with fines.

    Meanwhile, cases fall from astronomical to just massive.

    Deaths up to 438 since yesterday. What's that, a couple of plane crashes?

    I expect Boris to have trying to save his skin at the front of his mind and so I expect he'll remove all restrictions so as not to have his backbenchers have a strop with him.
