Hodge Accused of Knocking Cyclist Off Bike ‘While on Mobile’

20130426-085348.jpg Forget the questions about her tax affairs, here’s one Margaret Hodge didn’t dodge. Labour’s holier-than-thou Public Accounts Committee chairman has been accused of knocking over a cyclist in her car, while opening the door, with her mobile in her hand. Hodge strongly denies being on the phone when the incident happened, though she confesses she did have her mobile in her hand. Mysteriously a witness video by local Tory  by-election candidate Paul Ayer confronting Hodge has been pulled from YouTube this morning and a local news site has been silenced. First Harriet Harman, now Hodge, what is it with Labour’s limousine class?

UPDATE: Tory MP Philip Davies tells Guido: “To avoid any confusion Margaret Hodge should make a statement and clear up exactly what happened.”
