Punching Gandhi: The Richard Mulcahy story

[Note: This does not relate to the historic troublemaker and bongthief MLA Richard Mulcahy]

The Canberra Times has coverage of this tale before the ACT Courts, wherein Richard Mulcahy is being charged with assault causing aggravated bodily harm for allegedly punching Nicholas Gerhard and rendering him unconscious.
The defense is putting forward a position that Gerhard’s evidence was different to his original statement to police and had portrayed himself as the ”Mahatma Gandhi of the Mugga Lane tip”.

Are there any other unusual or equally bizarre metaphors we could apply to Canberra or Canberrans?
Do we have a Mother Teresa of Methamphetamines anywhere?

It turns out punching Gandhi will get you a conviction and a 12 month good behaviour order.

I hope he does well in his real estate career.
