Yesterday a court disqualified her from driving for six months. Which is exactly what the electors of Bolton South East should do when they have the chance.
She should be relieved that Recall Elections have yet to be introduced. She would be a prime first candidate.
UPDATE: Yasmin Quereshi has emailed me tonight and had the following comment...
Dear Mr. DaleWell, I can see why she's upset. Perhaps I shouldn't have believed everything I read in the newspaper.
I read your comment regarding me. But as always press have not reported what has actually happened which court was told about.
Facts are that...
I have had comprehensive policy cover for over 20 years. Since 2003 I have been insured by auto direct (my brokers).
I have a roll on policy which only gets cancelled if ask for it be done.
I have also a standing order arrangement with them which I did not cancel.
I was stunned when told I was not insured. I rang the insurance company
who said the following
a. That I did have roll on yearly policy
b. That I had been told that I only need contact if I am rejecting policy
c. That they had cancelled the direct debit which led to policy cancelling not me
d. It was their fault but of course if they say I am not covered then I have no choice.
e. I am talking the matter up with the insurance company.
This is again a case of misinformation put about by journalists who don’t check their facts.
You are correct it is the individual's responsibility to ensure that they were insured and I have been driving for over 20 years on fully comprehensive policy. For last 7 years I have been with auto direct and the system that I understood operated and I followed it.
The interesting thing is that when I rang the insurance company and told them they accepted they had made mistake but they would not budge.
Since this incident I have had about 10 people contact me re this and said they had also had similar problems and got points and fine.
I think that there should be campaign to alert all drivers who have roll on yearly policy to stop them and have different system in place.
I was very upset and hurt that you think I am worst of 2010 intake.
Do you know that I have not even been on leave or holiday. I am still working full time in constituency, doing visits, holding drop in surgeries and campaigning.
And I have the biggest casework for a new MP. My constituency office was up and running on Monday after the election. And I had my first drop in surgery within a week of being elected.
Yes please either put my email re what happened on your blog or perhaps you can change the wordings now that you know the real position.
