I see Mr Bruford has raised his head again. Poor pet. Dropped his fine from $1500 to $1000 for his ‘artwork’. Still cops the conviction though. How sad.
Look on the bright side. After his rehabilitation he will probably become a Labor MLA candidate in the next election.
My heart bleeds for the arrogant little shit.
They should have doubled his fine because he knew what he was doing, had systematically planned it, and undoubtably had no remorse, except when caught.
I dunno, that might have had some entertainment value.
I hope he didn’t try and breastfeed during his trial!
yes this softhead still just doesnt get it does he.
he had a lawful avenue for his views, yet he chose to destroy private property to further his views.
what a dickhead.
I think point 29 of the appeal judgement sums it all up quite well:
These offences were, as Mr Bruford admitted in his statement to police, planned and systematic. They were committed by somebody who ought to have known a lot better given his educational background. He knew that there were lawful outlets for his views, indeed he had taken part in such protests in the past. Frustration is not an excuse for breaches of the law by way of attacks upon public or private property.
Little shit….they should have doubled his fine. He shouldn’t have too much problems paying it off as I hear he has obtained a cosy little job in the public service – no doubt thanks to his mentor Stanhope.
Is Canberra's signature dish:
