This is WA Police Assistant Commissioner Gary Budge APM - shoulder to shoulder with Labor Premier Mark McGowan.
Assistant Commissioner Budge's guide to pursuing criminals involves the highly subjective "Budge" test.
Cover something up for long enough, have the right connections, let the offence go "stale" and - at least according to Assistant Commissioner Budge - you're off scot-free. Home and hosed.
Really Assistant Commissioner?
Does the Budge test apply to child sex offenders? Murderers?
Golf-course-Gary (that's him, second from the left on a "course" for the day) might think about criminals that way but Dave McAlpine and I don't.
This doesn't end here.
Every touch leaves its trace Gary - even hard to budge stale old buggers.
