"The court had heard how Lord Ahmed sent and received a series of five text messages while driving in the dark at speeds of, and above, 60mph along a 17-mile stretch of the motorway."
The headline sentence is a paltry 12 weeks in prison, but in fact apparently he will serve just half of his sentence in jail and the other half on licence. He was also banned from driving for a year.
Maybe the BBC will now refer to Lord Ahmed as the "convicted criminal" Lord Ahmed rather as they do with Jeffrey Archer. Maybe they would also like to mention in their article about Lord Ahmed's conviction that he allegedly threatened to "to mobilise 10,000 Muslims to prevent Mr Wilders from entering the House".
