SNP family, it seems that a younger member of a Labour family has found himself in a bit of trouble with the police.
Ryan Oldfather, a councillor for North Ayrshire, got pissed then decided to drive home. Unfortunately he hit a traffic island and wrecked the lamp post which was hurled 100 yards down the road.
He walked to his friends house, phoned a taxi and went home. The police were waiting for him. He was that drunk he couldn't give a breath test.
His mother is the MSP for Cunninghame south, Irene Oldfather.
See what happens when politics is treated like a family business?
Now for the ironic stuff....
Ryan Oldfather is a member of North Ayrshire Licensing Board and his mother warned of the dangers of having 'one for the road' during a debate in Parliament. Pity her lad wasn't listening. She also supported the set up of a government website that warns of the dangers of excessive boozing.
To be fair to the councillor, look at one of his role models. It's only to be expected, I suppose.
