Drink And Drive.

"A councillor has been banned from the roads for 12 months and fined £500 after he admitted drink driving. John Charteris, 67, of Cullivate, Locharbriggs, is a Conservative member of Dumfries and Galloway Council. At Dumfries Sheriff Court, he admitted committing the offence, in Lochmaben on Sunday, after attending a barbecue. He is the second Dumfries and Galloway councillor to receive a driving ban this year. The SNP's Robert Higgins was banned for two years in May."

Another couple of dodgy Councillors. And Councillor Charteris also happens to be a member of the local Licensing Board. Mr Smith doesn't even have to make it up.
