    How wrong!

    Perpetuating the myth that nhs workers are more special than other mortals.

    Not being a socialist I don't swallow that.

    I disagree with the verdict. If someone is an experienced paramedic and has attended numerous life and death situations - then he is more aware of the dangers of speeding. Even if he had been speeding to attend an emergency situation - he would have been well over the speed required. He was on a personal errand, travelling at an extremely high speed which even God should not be forgiven for.

    It's amazing what paying for a good lawyer does.

    He'd probably been told Esther McVey was about to cross the road a few hundred yards ahead. And he did it to try and save the suffering of the Disabled that will be affected under her vindictive hatred of anyone who qualifies for Benefits of ANY kind.

    While I don't agree with the reason given for him keeping his licence. He's not the only one that has managed to do exactly what he's done.

    his actual offence gave him 6 points not a ban, which gave him a total of 12 points. which is JUST a ban.
    There are over 10,000 drivers on the road with the same or more points.
