    I know with the NMC they see the difference between a motoring conviction and a criminal conviction as being the issue. motoring you don't need to report, criminal you do but just because you need to report it doesn't mean it will actually have any effect. It will go on your PVC/DBS check though so it is likely something you will need to have a discussion with someone about if and when that gets renewed. I haven't personally had an issue like this but a nurse friend has a criminal conviction for a car related offence and they just asked her what happened and if it had any effect on her doing her job - the thing that most went in here favour: she had admitted guilt, hadn't tried to get out of it and had been honest about the whole thing. I assume the GMC are as big on honesty as the NMC. I doubt very much the GMC cares that you were speeding, but they may very well care how you handle it. honesty is definitely your best policy here.

    Petition: Revoke Art.50 if there is no Brexit plan by the 25 of February On the 25th of November both the UK Government and the European Union came to an agreement on the proposed departure from the EU. After an historic defeat in the House of Commons on the 15th of January, 2019 by a majority of 230 votes the PM has now decided to go back to the EU over the backstop. More details Under section 5 (ii) of the Belfast argeement, 1998, there is agreement to " to use best endeavours to reach agreement on the adoption of common policies, in areas where there is a mutual cross-border and allisland benefit" The Government's own economic analysis published in November 2018, shows that a no deal scenario will have roughly a 10% decrease in GDP. The issue is that EU have firmly stated that they will not re-open negotiations with the UK over the agreement and remove the backstop. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/239706 15000 votes and counting LET MAY AND CORBYN KNOW RUNNING OUT THE CLOCK IS NOT ACCEPTABLE
