..............while Tony Wilde was sentenced to community service for the same offense. That's the problem with the law courts, they're either massively inconsistent or just downright corrupt.

Perhaps luckily before he went on to kill or seriously injure some other person or himself. 

Isn't it irrelevant, because you are comparing apples with pears. Both offences passed the custody threshold, but then the court had to examine if any alternatives to custody were suitable.

Can't believe I'm agreeing with manxb&b on something motorcycle related. But I am.

Corrupt. Consistently so. There has always been a tradition of the unwashed being sentenced much more harshly than well-to-do folk. And not just in drink driving cases.

The front of the courier has a foul mouthed teen going to prison. While a recent case involving a teen with extensive criminal damage, class A drugs and assault didn't even get to court.

Joey Dunlop, who is revered to the point of being virtually the patron saint of the Isle of Man was convicted in a Manx court of drink driving in 1988. Does anyone know what his sentence was? His conviction doesn't seem to have had much effect on his standing on the island.

There cannot be an 'over the top' sentence for drink driving. 

Under the top (under the bottom?) sentence. Tony Wild?

Along with an anti biker bent. The rich kid that killed the woman biker at Hillberry for example.
