Hypocrite of the day

He was a minister who helped to toughen up the law banning drivers from talking on a mobile phone.

And he made his name in the Commons by claiming dangerous drivers were "serial potential killers" and campaigning for longer sentences.

But yesterday Liam Byrne was convicted of using his mobile while at the wheel - leaving him with a fine, a criminal record and a reputation in tatters.

In the interests of fairness, I should point out that the statement that Byrne was left with his "reputation in tatters" is grossly inaccurate and misleading. As a minister in the current government, it should be abundantly clear to anyone that his reputation was already in tatters. Consider this recent video of Byrne in action, in his capacity as immigration minister (hat-tip: Sage King):



See? After a performance like that, what reputation does he have left to be "in tatters"?

Luverly grub!
The over-laid comments are good too.
Is'nt he a grubby little squirt.
Trying to wah wah his way out by saying Cameron said this and Cameron said that. Pathetic performance.
Remember though, he is only an empty-headed corporate mouth-piece for a govt of blatant public dis-information.
What's the betting that when stopped in his car he said he thought all Ministers were exempt from the laws that govern everyone else.
