Iain Dale is upset. In a huge surprise Government Minister Douglas Alexander has spoken out for government policy on banning all car mobile use by active drivers, hand held or hands free.
There are Tory muppets placing comments mocking the lack of enforcement on the existing "no mobiles" rules and jeering. But anyone driving alone and using a mobile will surely be bang to rights as cellphone technology will allow Big Alex to know who's on the roads and the airwaves at one and the same time?
Meanwhile Iain's jeering at Douglas for having several responsibilities (Scotland and Transport and spare time campaigning) must be compared to his own job list:
1. Right of centre commentator;
4. Radio pundit;
5. TV presenter;
7. Wannabe MP;
8. Mobile phoning willy nilly;
9. Campaigning and hobbies.
Pot-Kettle-Black - enforceable restrictions on mobiles plus driving at a street near you, soon.
