Polish Driver Banned

This was a headline that stuck out in a newspaper yesterday. The driver had been banned for being twice the legal drink drive limit. The reason the story stuck out was the headline, I wanted to know what was so important about the drivers nationality for it to be placed in the headline. After I had read the story I could not understand what relevance the driver’s nationality had and why it even needed to be revealed, let alone feature in the headline. There were sereval other stories in the papaer about drink driving (one was over three time the limit, while another was four times), but the nationalities of these drivers were not reveleaed at all in the story, let alone the headline. Really, what was the point?

The newspaper was NOT the Daily Mail
