For those of you who aren’t familiar, Australia is divided into states. At the top of the political tree in each state there is a guy called The Premier. And from the genes of the Premier of Victoria, Steve Bracks, we have his idiot 20 year old son, Nick.
Yesterday morning Nick, with a blood alcohol level of 0.129, crashed his 4-door Saab 900 into a tree. He wasn’t injured, but the friend traveling with him suffered cuts and abrasions.
A shattered Mr Bracks struggled to comprehend his son’s actions yesterday, saying he could not believe he had done it and “I didn’t see this coming”.
“He’s been an absolute idiot,” the father of three said, adding: “This has really shocked me.
“I just felt hopeless and useless, and you can’t help feeling a bit of a failure in some ways as a parent.”
Nick escaped injury in the crash, which happened about 4.30am at the junction of Melbourne Rd and Hosking St, Williamstown, just blocks from the Bracks family home.
He later returned a blood-alcohol reading of .129.
Mr Wilson, who was travelling in the back seat, received several deep cuts after the car went out of control and slammed into a tree, caving in the right back door.
Another Saab giving its life to protect its occupants, even if they’re drunk and endangering themselves and others.
Maybe Steve Bracks should get an AlcoKey with the next one? Here’s the car. I don’t think the black cat had anything to do with the accident.
