Politicians Drinking Badly

When a waiter refused to serve Gilmore more alcohol, he said "Don't you know who I am?" And called the waiter a "dickhead." Said Gillmore in his final speech: "But today I'm not surrendering, I'm retreating. I'm sorry I did not meet your expectations." [AFP, Stuff] [Photo: national.org.nz]
