amid allegations of bribes to erase speeding records.
It follows a newspaper investigation in which a clerk was filmed apparently agreeing to take £500 in return for a promise to clear a motorist. Munir Patel, 21, boasted that he took bribes ‘all day long’ at Redbridge Magistrates' Court, East London. It is alleged that he took cash, mainly from "Asian brothers" to avoid putting details of a traffic summons onto a court database.
Now here is a thought. If Patel can be shown to have preferred his "Asian brothers", and refused to take bribes from whitey, can he be done for racial discrimination as well? We must have equal opportunities in all things, doncha know.
