Australian Labor leader Bill Shorten has been forced to apologise after he was caught on camera using his phone while driving.
The opposition leader was filmed using his phone while driving at 40kmh on Melbourne’s Kings Way in a white 4WD.
Texting while driving at 40 km/hr is not a good idea.
In a statement, his office said whomever filmed the video was equally guilty: “It appears the witness was driving while he used his phone to film Shorten.”
What moron in his office thought it was a good idea to attack the person who dobbed him in? For all they know it was a passenger who filmed Shorten.
The incident was filmed by a witness who told the Herald Sun that he first noticed the car failed to drive off when the traffic light turned green.
The witness took out his own phone to film the car after he watched it swerve between lanes driving at a slow speed.
“He was driving all over the place,” he said.
The witness then realised Shorten was the driver. “He’s one of our leaders … he should be setting an example.”
The man said he decided to share the footage after hearing of that Shorten last month crashed his late mother’s Mitsubishi into a number of cars in Melbourne.
Shorten’s latest poll numbers are so bad he must be on borrowed time.
