A police officer who drove off after a car crash leaving two women and a child injured has been told he can keep his job, it emerged today.
Pc Tariq Mahmood of Greater Manchester Police, who was driving without insurance, tried to persuade his girlfriend and sister to lie for him in an attempt to cover his tracks.
At a hearing at Bolton Magistrates’ Court in March, the 30-year-old officer was fined £200 for failing to stop, £200 for driving without insurance and £175 for not reporting the accident.
He was banned from driving for a year.
Pc Mahmood blamed his behaviour on the trauma he suffered after the murder of his mother more than three years before the crash.
Must have kept him on for his batting.
Strangely, a few people seem a bit miffed by the decision.
And via Dhimmi Watch, a fascinating discussion at Muslim News on British identity.
Guardianistas seem pretty thin on the ground round these parts.
Dr Navidul Haq Khan, what alot of rubbish!! i shall remind u what being a British means...
1 Personal Freedom e.g Muslim girls should be free to date or marry non-Muslims?
2 Freedom of Expression-the Western media should be free to slander the Prophet (saw)
3 Sexual Freedom- Muslim youth should be free to express their sexuality anyway they choose?..& Muslim men should be free to commit adultery with women who consent?
Who can say there is no conflict with being British and Muslim??

I don't know if the Guardianistas realise they're filling Britain with several million Theodore Dalrymples.
