George Bush in court

Bit of fun. This is just up the road from where I live.

George Bush in court
From: AAP

GEORGE Bush has been brought to justice in Queensland.A distant relative and namesake of US President George W. Bush faced the Maroochydore Magistrates Court on the Sunshine Coast yesterday on a charge of driving while disqualified.

"We're starting with a big one today, aren't we?" Magistrate Cliff Taylor said when George Richard Wright Bush appeared in court.

Texas-born Bush, 21, was fined $550 and disqualified from driving for two years after he pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified.

Bush's solicitor Jim Ryan confirmed to the court his client was related to the world's most powerful man.

But the third cousin of the US leader said later he had never met his famous relative and had "nothing to do with him".

The US president, whose father George Bush also served as US president from 1988-92, is no stranger to driving offences himself.

He was arrested and fined $150 for drink driving when aged 30 in 1976. His younger sister Dorothy and Australian tennis star John Newcombe also were in the car.

The Sunshine Coast court was told the younger Bush, who works as a waiter, had been stopped by police in Maroochydore on November 3 and found to be driving while disqualified.

He told police he had been returning his car home after lending it to a friend.

Can you please keep your drunk Presidents in line? That's all we ask. ;-)

Love the Magistrate!

LOL....you've read Bill Bryson?

See, we have experience in what can happen to a countries leader if you don't take care of them.

I bet Bill Clinton was sleep walking and Monica was just stopping him from getting hurt.

Oh I was so disappointed when I read this. I thought they has impeached Bush and I was about to jump on my desk and whoop. Then I find out it's just some bloodly ex-Texan Queenslander.

Oh well. ;)
