I had one of those this morning (white van man as per usual).
National speed limit road and this muppet slowed to 35mph.
So I looked, indicated and overtook and then checked my rear view mirror to see that 'yes' he was on the phone but not having a conversation on it, oh no, this guy was such an expert driver that he was able drive and 'text' on his mobile at the same time - glacing up at the road ahead from time to time whilst tapping away on his phone. Needless to say that as I got further and further ahead of him; a large queue had started to build up behind him.
