The Austrian PM as well...

Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen apologized Sunday after he and his wife were caught by police breaking curfew rules at a restaurant.

The country has mandated that restaurants and bars shut down by 11 p.m. as a coronavirus prevention measure, but police told the Kronen Zeitung that the couple still had drinks at their table after midnight on Saturday night. The restaurant which was officially shut down at the time, according to the newspaper could face a fine of up to 30,000 for breaking the rules.


Van der Bellen said in a statement on Twitter that he had gone out to eat for the first time since lockdown began with his wife and two friends.

We lost track of the time while chatting and unfortunately overlooked the hour, he wrote. I am sincerely sorry. It was a mistake. If the restaurant host suffers any damage from this, I will take responsibility for it.

Municipal authorities must now decide whether the restaurant faces a pena

If only Dom had apologised rather than lying through his teeth, it might have moved on by now

Apologise or completely ignore the controversy, yeah. He didn't do anything the right way.

I don't know why you're banging on about this LT (well I do but. . .) He didn't break any rules. We are allowed to meet up with people from different households outside since the the 18th, I met up with 3 of my friends outside too last weekend, we even sat on a wall, got coffees and chatted

if it's allowed in Ireland like you say Niamh, then it's ok


that Austrian PM is more in the wrong, i guess as i do know that Austria has quite strict lockdown rules (one of the first countries in europe also to go in lockdown as i remember correctly, them besides Denmark)

It's ridiculous, isn't it. Was there a thread when a senior Austrian politician attended a restaurant? No! Funny that. Maybe everyone missed it

He's a political wart on the already-haggard foot that is Westminster politics and it would be nice to use this blunder to burn him off permanently, yes.

Did you have a point beyond that or...?
