ACT Policing picks up Tony Abbott’s Chief of Staff

johnboy 20 May 2013 38

The Herald Sun reports on the local police just happening to catch the high flying Lass from Wycheproof Peta Credlin for a low range DUI.

Mr Abbott’s office earlier confirmed Peta Credlin was caught outside her home with a ”low-range reading” after returning from a dinner in the capital last week.

ACT Police have since confirmed a 42-year-old woman was picked up drink driving on Thursday night with a reading of 0.075.

Hopefully the local plod has not ended up on the enemies list.

These people, honestly, scoff-laws the lot of them.

.075 might be low range, but that’s still more than an accidental sip over. Very bad judgement.

Hardly worth the effort writing the news story. It’s no different to any other person getting caught drink driving.

May have been more newsworthy and interesting should it have been Tony getting caught.

I’d be drinking too if I had to work for Abbott.

After this news, I’m sure some CFMEU-hired ‘comedian’ could come up with lots of jokes about swallowing in time for the next Federal Labor piss-up……

Wow

I don’t really think much else does this justice besides this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrfCixsd2N8

And what other charges have been laid for her to earn the title of a scofflaw (no hyphen)?
Who are the others that make up “them”?

Chief of Staff to the PM has a pretty large amount if power in this country (actual, practical power, not any legal power). Do we want someone with such obvious poor judgement or self control with so much power and influence?

And to the Dï?khèäds out there thinking “she was just unlucky to get caught” (it was just driving pissed, what’s the big deal) I say to you – do we want someone with bad luck in a position of power and influence?

Of course, we forget that Kevin Rudd abused the fuck out some poor RAAF trolley dolly who didn’t give him the right sandwich.

Sorry? The right sandwich?

And by abused, he really went completely overboard. So much that RAAF staff were conflicted as to step in.

Credlin fucked up, but really, is it a major thing? Nah, not really…

ACT Policing is sooooo buggered. After September, they’ll all be on litter patrol and cop work will be contracted out to Quangers.

I hope this woman isn’t the one who was on IVF…

A bit defensive aren’t you? If you are going to get all twisted up every time someone says something that you perceive as derisory about the Libs (there was nothing partisan in what I said) then you will be a very unhappy camper after September.

If only this show, particularly the coming episodes, could be as funny as Seinfeld:

although unintended irony (of which there will likely be quite a lot) is often funnier.

I thought scofflaw had the ring of Monty Burns (or his mother) to it, but you learn something new every day.

Well, it’s as major a thing as any DUI is. Which, here on RA at least, is a pretty unpopular charge.
Especially if you consider the fairly high recidivism rate of drink drivers:

(Not saying that she is one, but do I believe this was her very first time and she just made a bad judgement call on this one occasion??) 🙂

😀 but will we look back 20 years from now and still laugh? Possibly, after all, the silly Billy’s Sneddon and McMahon are still funny, even if they are pretty much forgotten.

Could be worse. She could of been seen running a red light on her push-bike while wearing lycra.

.075, pissed? Really?

You do realise that the .05 law is designed for the worst case scenario, the lowest common denominator or more simply, the highest amount of alcohol that the worst driver in the country can have in their blood without having a crash and killing someone.

90% of the population (the remaining 10% being vehicular rejects that the laws are made to protect) could drive a complicated slalom course in a paddle geared ferrari at .05 and not have a prang, .075 is barely worth a mention. I hold .075 in one leg when I’m on the piss and can still obey every single road law out there, safely and with no risk to anyone.

Pissed, what a joke! I

That is simply a silly post, I assume meant to troll. No basis in fact or common sense. Fatuous
