Dont Be a Dickhead Campaign in Australia

For this reason (and Neighbours), i am starting to love the aussies!

BBC News - Australian minister criticises Lewis Hamilton


The roads minister of Victoria in Australia has used strong language to criticise Lewis Hamilton after his road car was impounded by Melbourne police. Minister Tim Pallas made the comment on the day that Victoria launched a new road safety campaign.

Mr Pallas criticised the 25-year-old British racing driver on the day that Victoria launched a Don't Be a Dickhead road safety campaign.
Asked whether Lewis Hamilton met that description, he said: "OK, I'll say it. He's a dickhead."



No beating around the bush with the Aussies

He deserves to be arrested. As a race driver he should know how to make a head-start without skidding.

Actually the 'Don't be a Dickhead' campaign was erroniously reported as road-safety-specific. Actually it's just a generic community service announcement to encourage people to not be dickheads. Such crude language is supposed to reach these dickheads, but it probably won't.

If you drink and then stamp a 'bloody idiot' branding iron on your forehead, you're a dickhead.

Mark Webber got in a fair bit of shit for what he said in response to this too.

Yes, they do.

Three opposition leaders and two prime ministers in three years. Something odd is going on.

I'm surprised there wasn't a thread about it.

Still not entirely sure how I feel about the ordeal, other than feeling like I'm in completely different country. Kieran's onto something.

For what it's worth, I don't expect Gillard to be any better or worse than Rudd, although she's already annoyed me a little. What she'll do for our international image, I'm interested to see.
