Lord Ahmed, the NuLabour peer sentenced to death a potential 18 days in an open prison after killing a man in a stationary car, whilst distracted by texting on his mobile, must be thrilled to learn this morning that a driver who killed another motorist as she sent text messages from her mobile phone is to have her sentence reviewed.
Phillipa Curtis, 21, from Suffolk, had been using her phone before she hit the back of Victoria McBryde’s stationary car at 70mph on the A40 in Oxfordshire.
Curtis was jailed in February for 21 months after being found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving.
However, the solicitor general has asked the Court of Appeal to rule on whether the term was unduly lenient.
“If the Court of Appeal decides that the sentence is unduly lenient they have the power to increase the length of the sentence,” Solicitor General Vera Baird QC said.
No doubt 10,000 Muslim Solicitors are descending on Doncaster Prison this morning to reassure Lord Ahmed that this mendacious government couldn’t possibly be thinking of reviewing his sentence.
