    Irish County Council grants Drink Driving Permit

    Irish council approves motion to allow rural drink-driving | World news | guardian.co.uk
    A county council in south-west Ireland has voted to back a motion allowing for people living in isolated areas to drink and drive.

    The motion was passed by Kerry county council on Monday by five votes to three, with the remainder of the councillors either absent or abstaining.

    It supports the creation of permit that will allow rural drinkers to drive after having "two or three drinks". It was tabled by the independent councillor Danny Healy-Rae, who has claimed it would help prevent depression and suicide in the county.
    What? Stereotypes not strong enough yet?

    The stereotype that rural workers only way to entertain themselves is to get drunk at the local pub?

    Or the stereotype that rural workers all drink themselves to death from loneliness?

    So any kind of discussion about alcohol by an Irish court or council is automatically guilty of stereotyping. Alrighty then.

    It's bloody mad, is what it is. For the second time today, I see little evidence of any joined up thinking

    I think Accountable is addressing the irony of the new law.
