Has anyone else noticed the blunder made by His Maj. the honorable Stan Hopeless?
Last week he was interviewed on ABC television and stated categorically that the reason for requiring tighter speeding laws was that apparently there were more than “200 deaths on ACT roads, and that these people would still be alive today…” etc etc.
But last weekend the ABC reported that in each of the states, and in particular the ACT, the number of deaths on the roads was at a record low of less than 20 (I think he said 19 deaths.)
Can anyone explain the discrepancy in these numbers? Who is correct? Who is “more correct”? Who is fudging the stats? And WHY?
It wouldn’t be for fund-raising would it?
[ED – Anyone want to suggest better ways to raise the funds?]
