Does Not Compute...

The Brighton and Hove Albion defender, 30, was clocked breaking the 70mph speed limit in his Land Rover on December 29 last year.
After failing to appear in court at Crawley, magistrates discovered the Cameroon international does not hold a valid UK licence.
The player did not respond to letters from Sussex Police and he was due to attend court yesterday.
The case against him was found to be proved and a new date was set for him to return to court to be disqualified.
Yeah, I'm sure he'll do that...
Crawley Magistrates Court heard Bong already had enough penalty points to put him over the limit for losing his driving licence.
When his driving record was checked, the court heard he did not have a licence.
The Seagulls defender was convicted of two speeding offences in 2016.
So did he have a licence then, and it's since elapsed? And what action did the club take for his failure to show up?

Get a bench warrant and arrest him an hour or so before he is due to play. That should concentrate his, and others, mind somewhat. Then when he has appeared in court, deport him. There must be someone else in that area who can kick a ball.

I'm thinking of a comic book; "Howard the Duck on the Island of Doctor Bong". Sorry, it's late.

DVLA can create a driver record and apply points to it even if you don't have a licence. Of course what the f*ck difference that makes to someone like this bloke is hard to say...
