How fucking petty can you get?

Not content with relying on the handful of police who are actually allowed to patrol our streets and roads when they should be doing important things like filling in paperwork, two pathetic little attention-seekers have taken a photo of Jeremy Clarkson (allegedly) talking on a mobile phone while driving. And then gone to the police.

All without the slightest thought they might have managed to get their names in the papers of a few quid from a red-top for the privilege of course.

It does make me wonder a few things. First of all, they say he was doing 70mph when they took the picture. So to get a photo of him, they’d have had to be level. Which means overtaking him so that the passenger could snap the picture. Which means they’d have to be exceeding 70mph. Are the police looking into that?

Also, why pick on this one man? Was he the only one on a phone? Or do they do this for fun, taking photos of everyone they see breaking driving laws? If so, where is there catalogue of grainy mobile videos featuring undertaking, lack of lane discipline, tailgating and so on?

Whoops, sorry. Taking a few snaps of a guy in a BMW tailgating a Lada doing 68mph in the fast lane wouldn’t really get them into the papers, would it?
