Pissed pollies

By smokey2 11 March 2008 11

The Age Newspaper lists the Holly Grail as the place to find a pissed pollie. So much for national security. Thanks very much the Age.

what was Kevin07’s excuse for ending up at a strip joint while travelling on the taxpayers tab?

Oh yeah a binge drinking session – $53 million tab for the “verbal bullocking” Terese gave him.

Does Lyn Allison really think that seeing drunk old farts makes teenagers drink? I think she’s a bit out of touch.

Without video evidence of a drunk pollie actually staggering about at 5am, I’m sorry … but I refuse to believe this tabloidesque trash reporting …

It’s all getting rather silly.

The SMH has a report which seems to indicate that all the pollies get on the sauce till three in the morning.

Democrats leader Lyn Allison suggested politicians and journalists could take the lead by not getting drunk at a local Canberra bar – The Holy Grail.

“Let’s start with The Holy Grail, not staying there until the early hours of the morning and see how we go,” she told reporters.

She said adults needed to set an example for responsible alcohol consumption.

“(They) need to show by example to young people that binge drinking is not wise, it is not good for your health and it will probably get you into some trouble at some stage in your life.”

Surely Rudd-the-Saviour will put an end to this unholy drinking?

Maybe Holly Grail is a high price hooker?

This is very old news. Oh, and it’s ‘Holy’ not ‘Holly’.
