3 points for middle lane drivers

ok slightly harsh this but its become a real bug with me.
I think police should be given the power to give 3 points and a fine to those who sit in the middle lane.
Came from Blackpool to Preston on the bike today, steady 70 and i had a clear lane in the inside lane almost all the way, there was a line of 3 cars just in front of me and all close together in the middle lane the whole 16 miles of motorway.
Had the misfortune to do a lot of motorway miles recently and everywhere its the same, doesnt the highway code say inside lane for driving, middle and outer lane for overtaking.
That means overtake then pull in if its safe to do so.
I know it couldnt effectively be enforced but hopefully the fact there is a penalty might encourage people to pull in.
