Australians are a boozy bunch, hey. Just this week, Prime Minister Tony Abbott impressed his new mates at an AFL footy function by skulling a beer in just one go!
While health advocates and most of the media were quick to denounce his behaviour as unbefitting of an Aussie head honcho, there were many out there in voterland who thought it was the best thing Tony’s done in aaaages… some would even say ‘ever!’.
But of course Abbott slugging a cold one* is not without precedent for Australian prime ministers. Former PM Bob Hawke has in recent years more than once delighted beer soaked cricket fans with his fabled World Record setting drinking prowess (Also see: Bob Hawke’s Legend: The true story of the yard glass yarn).
So who, then, is the champ? There’s only one way to find out… SKULL!
