(AN EMBARRASMENT to real SINGHS)

 

Hit-and-run driver condemned for 'indescribable selfishness' after admitting mowing down cyclist, 24, and leaving her to die
 

A hit-and-run driver today admitted mowing down a cyclist and leaving her to die in the middle of the road.

Ajay Singh, 26, was condemned for his 'indescribable selfishness' after his Volkswagen Polo ploughed into Vicky Myres in Timperley, Greater Manchester.

The 24-year-old was out cycling with her boyfriend's mother at 8am on a Sunday when she was knocked to the ground.

Singh later sped off and left the young florist, from Flixton, dying at the roadside before she was pronounced dead after suffering fatal injuries.

Following the tragedy it emerged she had just bought a house with her long-term partner James and the couple had recently completed the Land's End to John O'Groats bike ride.

Singh was traced several hours after the crash and arrested. 

Experts are now currently studying blood or urine samples taken from him to establish whether he was over the drink and drug driving limit at the time of the impact.

At Minshull Street Crown Curt, Manchester, Singh admitted causing death by dangerous driving and also failing to stop and report a road crash.

He faces a maximum 14 years in prison when he appears again in court next month but the length of his stretch is expected to be discounted due to his guilty plea.

In 2010, he had appeared before court aged 18 over an attack by a gang on a 17-year-old boy at a park in Rochdale which left the victim with bleeding on the brain.

Shortly after her death it was revealed that Miss Myers had just bought a home with her boyfriend 

Relatives of Miss Myres wept in the pubic gallery as prosecutor Rob Hall said: 'At the moment the Crown doesn't have the results of any blood toxicology in relation to samples taken.

'He may be entering a plea without knowing the nature of the aggravating features - but I do understand though that the defendant would like to get back some credit. If he pleads it will make it difficult for the crown to put in a new charge.

'Toxicology results are due back this week and we have to look at back calculations as well. The Crown would be able to serve everything of significance within 28 days. The defendant is likely to face a substantial term.'

Remanding Singh in custody, Judge John Potter told him: 'You have pleaded guilty to the most indescribable selfishness which has caused significant harm to the rest of their lives to many, many people.

'You have to understand as a consequence the court will impost custody of some length. Exactly how long will be determined by a colleague of mine on October 26. 

'It can't be imposed today because there's more information the CPS need to provide before the court can give an appropriate sentence.

'On October 26 everything will be in place to receive as I say what will be a significant custodial sentence.

'I disqualify you immediately, the exact amount of the disqualification will be determined on October 26. There is only one outcome which is immediate custody. I will remand you until October 26.' 

At the time of Miss Myres' death, her family said: 'Our lovely daughter Vicky Myers has been taken from us at the age of only 24, leaving her mum and dad, sister Rachael, brother Andrew, Grandad and Grandma, Sarah and Martin and especially partner, James, devastated.

'She had everything to live for and, together with James, had brought a house last year and just completed Lands End to John O'Groats by bike - over 1,000 miles within 12 full days of cycling.

'Her life was perfect, she lived it to the full and, together with her devoted partner James, they were planning longer and more exotic trips'.

'She had been a vegetarian for a while and more recently had become a vegan and enjoyed working as a florist.

'It's easy to say your daughter is lovely but she was, both inside and out. It has left a void that we cannot see being filled, ever.'

      Not so much 'advice' per se but things you might wanna consider: 1) nowadays, a lot of the girls in the pend are pretty lazy generally and not even very skilled in the kitchen with even basic foodstuffs like pakore and somoseh  readily available in stalls in the village. Bear in mind then that the girls that live with their families out on the Khoo (isolated farm house by the well) away from the village are usually a lot smarter and a lot fitter....being used to hard work and very quickly making things for visitors that arrive on the farm. 2) 3 words: background check...background check...background check. Get your 'driver' to chat with the 'drivers' in the girl's pend about the girl and her family's character. The pend's drivers know everything about everyone in their pends. 3) Way too many spouses are currently being refused entry into the UK for failing the compulsory English test. It never used to be like this so your parents are probably not going to factor that in when considering girls but you need to. 4) Once you find someone, absolutely insist that there is no big financial burden on the girl's family regarding the wedding. Even if they can afford it you must remain socially responsible and understand the immense social and economic harm it is causing in Punjab when people see what others (particularly those from 'foreign')spend and feel pressured to live up to those expectations and so take out massive loans for that purpose. Set the right example.

      If you 'worry' for someone for saying maryada for amritdharis should be followed by amritdharis you seriously have some 'worrying' problems.  If you 'worry' for someone putting into writing opinions on a discussion forum which is designed as a platform for opinions to be shared on a written basis your 'worrying' problem is even more problematic that I initially thought. 'Worrying' is something a parent should do when their child is ill in hospital. It is something a father should do when not able to pay the household bills on time. When a grown man or woman 'worries' at the sight of opinions and facts being expressed in writing that is a sign of deep need for some type of psychotherapy. I would suggest you seek out that help sooner rather than later as this type of mental tension can quickly manifest itself as physical tension. There is help available out there and you should not feel stigmatized and embarrassed about seeking it. In essence, what you have, my friend, is a particular and rather peculiar form of  Allodoxphobia. Within this context, the sight of other people expressing their own opinions frightens you. This fear of an 'opinion' being expressed provokes a reaction in you typical of all fears in that it makes you become defensive and when people become defensive they tend to lash out at the person expressing the opinion. It is fear that drives this psychological state and the key of course is to overcome it. It can work both ways of course as I'm probably a bit too much at the opposite end of it in the sense that I absolutely adore reading other people's opinions because I like the way it gets me thinking more deeply about a particular subject matter and also helps me to become more empathetic...or at least understand that there are opposing viewpoints on virtually every subject matter. I also particularly like those posters on this forum that deploy a Socratic approach to what they write, in that they pose hard-hitting questions and opinions with the objective of provoking the reader into some reflective analysis of the issues being discussed. Of course, I fully understand that those already overcome with a fear of opinions will not be positively embracing of the Socratic approach but as I said in the beginning I am understanding and supporting of everyone's emotional and mental needs and there is help available out there to overcome that fear. I truly wish you all the best in that but most importantly please remember that there is no stigma attached, i.e as the Khalsa know, there is no fear.
