It was just a joke

FEDERAL Labor MP Peter Garrett is under pressure to take a drug test after Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns said the two smoked joints with U2 singer Bono.

A spokeswoman for Mr Garrett yesterday said: “We confirm Daniel Johns’ statement saying that it was a joke.”

Kate Pasterfield later quoted her boss Mr Garrett as saying: “I tried a bit of dope in my 20s but I haven’t since.”

Yeah – right Peter.

Mind you, the anti-drug campaigners suggestion that Peter undergoes drug testing is pointless. Garrett’s pretty thick but even he wouldn’t turn up to a drug test with residue in his veins.

It was just a joke. Oh well, that’s OK then.
