Looks like Rowan Williams already has his way

I think the driving laws in this country are ridiculous. I think most of them are simply revenue raising exercises and the police should be out catching criminals rather than hiding behind bushes with speed guns.

I would also take pleasure in personally blowing up every kind of 'traffic calming' measure like speed bumps and pointlessly blocking off one lane of a road. It also stinks of hypocrisy when all we hear about is 'climate change' and yet these measures contribute to congestion and damage cars.

However, what makes me more annoyed about traffic laws is when some bigamous, hypocritical knobhead doesn't have to abide by them.

Mohammed Anwar said a ban would make it difficult to commute between his two wives and fulfill his matrimonial duties.

His lawyer told a Scottish court the Muslim restaurant owner has one wife in Motherwell and another in Glasgow - he is allowed up to four under his religion - and sleeps with them on alternate nights.

But bigamy is illegal in this country, so like benefits it's now one law for them and another for us?

He can drive at 64mph in a 30 but I can't because I'm not married to numerous people?

I can't imagine decisions like this make it very easy for law abiding Muslims in this country who are governed by the laws of this land and don't take the piss. People get rather agitated by what they see as unfair and could tar all Muslims with the same brush.

It has to be one law for everyone, regardless of religion, gender, race or shoe size.

What utter rubbish. Any man who says he's rushing home to get back to his wife is a liar, and that counts double for someone with two.

Anyway, the train from Glasgow to Motherwell takes all of 20 minutes...

Going back a bit to getting rid of 'traffic calming measures' that's sort of Gregg Beaman's department.
