The ABC has the happy news that Jon Stanhope is thinking about ways to turn the rising drink driving arrest rate into another Government advertising opportunity:
- Chief Minister Jon Stanhope says he is considering publishing the names of drink drivers on a government website or in a Canberra Times advertisement.
But why stop with drink drivers? I’d love to see courts in the ACT publishing more information (and in a more timely manner) on all their deliberations.
UPDATED: The Liberals’ Jeremy Hanson appears to have become over-excited by this and has put out an error riddled media release which does, however, bring up the elephant in the room:
- “Mr Stanhope should also consider the message that he is sending to the community on DUI while one of his Ministers, Mr Hargreaves, retains a prominent position in his Labor Government,”
