Off Topic: Prince Philip

The Duke of Edinburgh will not face prosecution over his road crash near the Sandringham estate, the Crown Prosecution Service has said.

The 97-year-old duke voluntarily give up his driving licence after his Land Rover Freelander collided with another vehicle last month.

He later apologised to the occupants of the other car - two women and a baby.

The CPS says it decided that it would not be in the public interest to prosecute the duke.

-------------------------------------

What are people's thoughts on this?

I think the reason the CPS gave that "it would not be in the public interest" is a ridiculous reason not to prosecute. If someone has committed an offence then it shouldn't matter what their standing is.

Most of them are careful. Far too risky not to be. You do not know where those prozzies have been.

And yet, by comparison, a man who was homeless at the time of the offence, was prosecuted for not sending his tax return in on time.

Fortunately the judge threw it out as being unreasonable.

Did anyone really doubt that HRH would not end up in court?

I thought driving without due care and attention meant prosecution - it did when I went into the back of someone aged 19. Or maybe it was just because I was 19?

Waaaaaaay. You're actually alright! I don't care what everyone says about you. I think you're alright. I mean they are some horrible things. Nasty, nasty accusations, which I obviously don't believe. Disgusting thjngs, which I don't think you are capable of. But you never really know someone. But still, the things they are saying, I just refuse believe. Maybe I am just in denial. Now that I think about it you seem quite capable of it. That's disgusting mate!! Can't believe you did that.

More likely because there was more evidence that you were driving without due care and attention. Some accidents are just accidents, some are not.

I mean it could be because you're not married to the head of state, but I doubt it.
