You Gotta Love the Aussies

A man convicted of his 7th drink driving offence over five years after splitting up with his missus was spending nearly £500 a week on beer, surprisingly the judge didn’t pass a jail sentence but instead simply banned him from drinking or holding beer for 12 months. The best part of this entire thing was though that when he sentenced the judge said ''(That is) poor judgement on two counts there -- drinking that much and drinking Melbourne Bitter,''

While this comment was founded over the Aussies support of their beer rivalling that of their support for their various teams it is refreshing to see that not all countries have become so legally wound up in red tape as the British systems.
