Straight and Narrow

Guess who's not being straight with us?

EMBATTLED judge Marcus Einfeld has reneged on a promise to identify who was behind the wheel of his speeding car - and blamed police inaction for the silence.

Despite earlier claiming the announcement of the "actual driver" was imminent, Mr Einfeld's legal team yesterday refused to reveal that person's identity.

The silence comes after Mr Einfeld gave three different versions as to who was driving the 67-year-old's silver Lexus when it was clocked at 60km/h in a 50km/h zone at Mosman on January 8 this year.
Surely it would have been easier to have paid the fine and have done with it.

Here's to you Judge Marcus Einfeld and your barristers, clocking up surely what must be the world's most expensive traffic court hearing:
