Harriet Harman, the Labour deputy leader, is being investigated by police over allegations she left the scene of an accident after hitting a parked car while talking on her mobile phone.
According to witnesses, Miss Harman, who is Leader of the House of Commons and Minister for Women and Equality, stopped initially but then drove off without giving her insurance or registration details. The offence carries a possible sentence of six months in prison.
However aides said she \”strongly refutes\” the allegations, but added that she was \”co-operating fully\” with the police.
Miss Harman, MP for Camberwell and Peckham, is said to have told a witness who approached her car: \”I\’m Harriet Harman – you know where you can get hold of me\”.
Start ritual cries of \”one law for them and another for the rest of us\”…..
So, here\’s the question. If she did do it, is it a resigning matter?
