Well i live on small back country roads and to say you can only go 20-30 miles an hour?! BS! I regularly see people doing in excess of 60 mph. What craziness is that idiot spouting. The govt need to stay strong on this and not bow to them. And almost everyone who voted in favour of the motion were publicans. They’re obviously not biased.

    Have to agree with you there Sara, my daughter lives in the arsehole of nowhere, turn right past the Back of Beyond and you’re almost there. She regularly see’s “rural drivers” navigating the country roads at speeds approaching the sound barrier and it’s not unusual to see cars in a ditch at any time of the year. You have to wonder does this fool seriously believe that Kerry is the only part of the country with rural communities where people get lonely at night. Then what? All these lonely depressed Kerry people go out and cheer themselves up? Nope. They’re expected to consume a known depressant, alcohol. Brilliant Danny, brilliant.

    Really? But it was such a viable and well thought out solution to a major social and economic problem.
