Get out of the middle lane

Yeh! I don't care if there is five six seven miles of you speedsters banked up behind me, 'CAUSE 70 IS THE SPEED LIMIT!
Yeh I mouth obscenities when you undertake and flip the finger!
Yeh and when I deign to move back into the middle lane, and come up against Mr 69.99 mph, I will move over and take several miles to overtake him, AND you can flash yer lights all you like 70MPH is the law and I ain't breaking the law!

However, I was on the A1 yesterday (giving the new car a blast) and the number of times I got stuck behind one wagon doing 0.00000001 mph more than the wagon it was overtaking was ridiculous. I lost count and I only did 40 miles each way.
These are the "Professional" Lorry Drivers who curse Caravanners...............I cant recall ever being stuck for long behind a Caravan........I know it happens but not to me (either that or my memory is failing)

Close up fast from behind they soon move back to the right including me doing 130kph when a large Deutch-mobile is closing on my rear at around 180kph..

When it comes to speeding and drink-driving, you can just do the maths: Is one number greater than another number? Cool! You have yourself a guilty party. When it comes to mobile phone abuse: was it in your hand while the engine was running? Fantastic!
But when is/isn't it appropriate to stay in the middle lane rather than moving back over? When is/isn't it appropriate to have a less than 2 second gap between you and the car in front? When is/isn't it appropriate to turn on front/rear fog lights due to 'reduced visibility' (I'm sure light drizzle doesn't count, but it seems some drivers don't agree.) Can the police prove that you were doing any of these things inappropriately? As I understand it, you can already be prosecuted for 'driving without due consideration' for all of the above, but it isn't worth the time and effort to do it, because it's very difficult to prove 'beyond reasonable doubt.'
Or maybe this is just another excuse to hand out fixed penalty notices and claim their 80 quid, hoping it'll never go as far as court. Cynical? Me?

So whilst I agree with the idea in principle it would be very difficult to provide proof of the offence.
Let us assume that everyone abides by the rule and forces their way back into the first lane how many accidents would there be and how many irate drivers?

Similarly, if I'm in the middle lane and there is nothing to stop me moving over and nothing close enough that will need me to quickly come out again, then why am I still in the middle lane? it don't take rocket science to work it out!
Thing is and as does happen, if I'm in the inside lane and I come up behind a middle laner. What do I do?
What winds me up is moving over to the far right when nothing is there but the law stopping me passing on the inside of the dozy sod!.. that's if he/she even notices me!!
