+++ BREAKING NEWS: DRINK DRIVING GUIDO FAWKES GETS THREE MONTH 9PM – 6AM CURFEW ORDER AND ELECTRONIC TAG +++

Blogger Guido Fawkes was sentenced to a three month curfew order this afternoon after being convicted of driving while over the legal alcohol limit and without insurance.

Appearing at Tower Bridge Magistrates Court the blogger, real name Paul Staines, was told the curfew would operate between the hours of 9pm and 6am. Staines, 41, will also have to wear an electronic tag.

The judge also handed down an 18-month supervision order and a three year driving ban. Staines will be required to retake his driving test when the driving ban has elapsed. He was also ordered to pay the prosecution’s £60 costs.

I suppose this all ended happily. I mean, you know, at least there wasn’t an accident with another car – say a young family, just like Staines has. Also, rather surprised that Guido would show so little respect for other people’s property, by driving uninsured. Like I said, it all ended happily.

    The insurance thing is a UK mentality. In various US states you’re not required to have insurance, you just have to pay out of your own pocket if you cause an accident. I expect that’s the policy Paul agrees with.

    Mentality? It’s a law.

    Why was he in front of a judge in a magistrates’ court, which is where they have magistrates?

    Tom: Guido might agree with the polic that you pay out of your own pocket, rather than drive insured. However; Guido also claims to believe very strongly in the rule of law. Thus, it doesn’t matter that Guido disagrees with a law. Everyone is, in his view, equal before the law and should not break it. Formed of a mentality or not, he should, by his own logic, keep to it…Oh, and as far as I’m aware, Staines doesn’t need to fuck off to the US, desirable as that would be. He lives in Ireland anyway…
