What's that? I've never heard of a 'victim surcharge' before.

Minister not monoster :) Perhaps that should have read monster?

I've never heard of a victim surcharge either...However I would think his job will be on the line now!

"he was taking an important call on a deportation matter at the time that he was stopped"

I just hope that any minister considering my deportation can give the matter his full attention.

What on earth happened to all these "important" calls before mobiles?

I know that mobiles are pretty versatile but can the modern ones really indicate that "This is an important call about deportation" when they ring?

37 years old and he is bald already?

I'm 71 and still got a full head of hair.

All mobiles have....is an "off" button. My new incarnation xda runs Windows Mobile etc. etc. but has a feature called "Flight Mode" which turns off the phone function. Surely a minister can afford a hands free car kit?

Isn't a Minister's "hands free" kit called a PPS (Permanent Private Secretary)?
