Lord Ahmed has been jailed for 12 weeks (out in six) for dangerous driving, in an incident in which a man died.
A few things.
Ahmed has been spun here and there as confessing straight away. He did not. He said nothing until he was confronted by the evidence that he was texting.
It is claimed his speed was about 60 mph on a motorway, yet he was in the outside lane. Was he overtaking a horse and cart?
Phone records are not accurate enough to prove he was not texting at the moment of impact. The judge was wrong. (Ahmed may have been preparing a text that was never sent)
12 weeks is acknowledged to be a negligible sentence, many ordinary white people have been given years for the same offense.
My belief is that the sentence was unduly light. Make of that what you will.
At least he is now out of politics and hopfully the House of Lords.
