Drink-Driving Councillor Put in Charge of Road Safety

Whenever you see the words Tory and Councillor together, you know it’s going to be good. Canterbury councillor Neil Baker has just been put in charge of the committee responsible for road safety in his town, despite being convicted of drink-driving just a few weeks ago. According to the Canterbury Times:

“Part of the new role is to advise the council’s executive committee – which Tankerton representative Mr Baker was suspended from following his arrest – on highways, road traffic and public transport issues. The 30-year-old father-to-be was hauled before the courts on January 7, after crashing his car into a tree in Whitstable while more than twice the legal drink limit.”

You couldn’t make it up…
