What do you do with a pissed up councillor?

In case you haven’t heard Bedford Borough Councillor Doug McMurdo seen here after being found guilty of really getting stuck into some yoof has been found guilty of really  getting stuck into some “yoof” up at Sharnbrook Village Hall. Now I said that twice for comic effect!

On spying the youth on a bench after asking if they had any drugs punches were thrown and when one of the yoofs picked Doug’s glasses (eyesight not beer) up and tried to return them safely to him…..well Doug punched him. Then Doug’s drinking mate (13 pints between the two of them) dragged one of the yoofs about and generally had a typical Bedford night out! The beak has hinted at a holiday courtesy of Liz! Doug says he can’t remember any of it but they still found him guilty which might appear unfair!

Doug McMurdo in happier days!

Now prior to the case coming to court Doug stepped down from his position as Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture as it would appear that it was incompatible scrapping with teenagers. I shall say no more. Even though I could. No I won’t. I know Doug and it’s both hilariously funny and sad.

I did wonder amid strong suggestions that one councillor turns up for meetings straight from the pub having supported the local economy with his ample expenses whether the council couldn’t introduce breathalysers on the front door just to make sure they are fully with it. They come in all colours. shapes and sizes just like the breathalysers shown below.

Will these work at reducing drunken councillors?
