North Shore City's great Chief Imbiber has managed to embed his nomenclature in the minds of every potential voter in the region. When he gets to court, the defense lawyer has only to put him on oath and ask him those three medical questions dreaded by all life insurance applicants:-
- Do you drink alcohol?
- How many standard drinks have you consumed during the last week?
- Have you ever been advised by a medical practitioner to reduce your alcohol consumption?
