So these penalties are long overdue, but I’m terrified. It’s not as if I haven’t been caught already. A few months herve leger bandage dresses 2017 , I was in the middle of a long, pleasurable gossip as I drove through West London. My iPhone sat in its cradle at eye level, on the screen Google Maps.

 

Yak yak yak, I went, and then, to my horror: a blue flashing light in the wing mirror.

 

Policeman on a motorbike eyeballing me. Caught red-handed.

 

The cop jabbed a finger towards the garage just up ahead on the left, so I drove in.

 

He hopped off, I put the handbrake on, but the car still rolled on before coming to a standstill (it’s always done that). ‘You were talking on your mobile,’ he told me sternly. ‘And your handbrake does not work. I’d say, Madam, you’re [he glanced at his watch under a leather gauntlet as if the countdown to driving doomsday had started] this close to being off the road.’

 

What would you do? What would an honest Injun do? Certainly not what I did.

 

Then, it was £100 and three points, rather than double that, but still – possibly the end of the road for me, I wasn’t sure of the penalty points system, so I panicked.

 

‘No I wasn’t, officer,’ I whined. ‘I was just using Google Maps!’ and pointed to the offending mobile.It won’t happen again, officer, I swear. I promise, I promise on my children’s heads because last Wednesday the Government brought the final curtain down on my worst habit and lethal addiction, and one I can’t just give up for Lent, I must give up for ever.

 

My worst habit by far, as terrified family members and other road-users will confirm, is using my mobile at the wheel.

 

I’m a guilty player in a national epidemic of fatal bad manners on the highway that on March 1, the Government cracked down on: it’s now six penalty points, a £200 fine, even a possible driving ban for some offenders. Serious stuff.

 

Sixty people have been killed by drivers using mobiles in the past three years, and the South East (where I live) is the worst blackspot for the accidents.

 

‘But I’ve been behind you, watching you, for ten minutes,’ said the policeman, who clearly thought I had been dangerously distracted even if I hadn’t actually been holding the phone.

 

I collapsed like a pricked inflatable. I considered the options. And I did the only thing I thought I could do in the circumstances.

 

The PC with red hair glared at me, and I said he was right. I was wrong. I admitted I had lied, and I apologised. And I am sorry to say he let me off. Just this once. It was my lucky day – but maybe, I allow, not yours.

 

My name is Rachel Johnson and I am a mobile-phone addict, and therefore a danger to society. It wasn’t the first time I’d done it. It was merely the first time I’d been caught.

 

So this is my promise to nice PC Ginger and all other road users. This has been a Herve Leger Cheap Green Striped Single Shoulder Bandage Dress  to me, and I hope to you.

These new laws are as tough as they need to be.

 

It won’t happen again, officer, I swear. It’s cold turkey, and then one day at a time.

 

Kellyanne Conway, 50, was caught crouching on the Oval Office sofa like a texting schoolgirl in her teenage bedroom. 

 

Which told us this: she’s more than at home in the White House, the mansion built by slaves that now houses the President and his men, but not, for the moment, his wife.

 

As the hyper-relaxed pose – stilettos tucked under her bony butt – revealed: Conway has the run of the place, and she and Trump are clearly comfortable together as colleagues. 

 

If I was Melania – who, unlike Kellyanne, has not put a foot wrong, let alone two – I would definitely have a word. 

 

That's not a dress - it's just a distraction 

 

To the big question of the week: how much is too much? 

 

Actress Brie larson appeared on The One Show last week in what one critic supplieted was a 'pre-watershed busty display'. 

 

Emma Watson, the actress and feminist activist, flashed Herve Leger Strapless Dresses with predictable results (accusations that she'd gone 'topless' and 'posed semi nude'). 

 

Jennifer Aniston was ticked off for showing both breasts and leg at the Oscars. 

 

The answer is this. If your boobs are all anyone is talking about - not your latest film (Larson and Aniston), or your opinions on female genital mutilation (Watson) - then you're showing too much.
