The Crown Prosecution Service said in a statement:
'The Crown Prosecution Service has decided there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to prosecute the Rt Hon Harriet Harman MP for the offences of driving without due care and attention and driving whilst using a hand-held mobile telephone in relation to an incident on 3 July 2009 in Peckham, London.'
If found guilty, Ms Harman could face a £6,000 fine, penalty points on her licence or a driving ban.
Her spokeswoman said:
'Ms Harman strongly refutes the allegations and will deny the charges.'
Hmmmm...... now where have we heard that one before?
