prince Philip driving his Range Rover, causes a road accident in which a woman in the other car suffers a broken wrist (broken wrists and ankles – very difficult to ever get full movement back again).
The arrogance of the man is breath-taking: within a few hours, he as been supplied with a brand new Range Rover (who else could manage that ?) and is caught driving without a safety belt.
Any, ordinary driver would have been charged with Reckless driving leading to Grievous Bodily Harm. Even that would result in a prison sentence.
But such is the Arrogance of the man that he immediately drives his replacement vehicle without a seat-belt.
Most judges/magistrates would ‘throw the book at’ any ordinary person – we send people aged over 100 yrs to prison.
BUT in Philip’s case, he cannot be charged, because PEOPLE WITH A CRIMINAL CONVICTION CANNOT ENTER THE ROYAL BOX AT ASCOT HORSE RACING.
ONE LAW FOR THEM – BUT ANOTHER, MUCH MORE HARSHER ONE FOR THE REST OF US !
