Matt Birney (WA Lib leader) gets pulled over by the cops and tests at .04 on the breathalyser, after an initial .05 reading was rechecked. The limit is .05. He is legal.
The bloke had two beers and ok to drive, according to our laws.
This morning as I drive to Albany listening to the ABC I hear Liam Bartlett speaking about him as if he were a common criminal… only to later admit that he has also driven after ‘having a few drinks’.
There is no argument that to drive while under the influence is foolish, but Birney didn’t do that… Simple as that.
I don’t really care much for Matt Birney, but the poor bloke has been caned all weekend for no good reason.
