    Chris Berg stating facts. The Leftards and IPA-haters are not going to like that.

  2. For the same reason that legislation is not put through individually, introducing multiple measures enables governments to control the narrative by choosing whichever measure they want, regardless of which measure may cause a reduction. There are no coincidences in politics. Bruce Willis sums it up best here

    Chris Berg is absolutely right the lockouts are a knee-jerk reaction but the current bunch of jerks, driven by a deranged and slavering media

    Lockouts are stupid. “It’s a quarter to three, there’s no one in the place except you and me .. and all the other numpties who rushed to get in here before 1am and have been here since”

    Most young people seem to be getting smashed before they even hit the clubs. We didn’t do this so much in our youth (I am talking about my peers) simply because we didn’t have the disposable income. Some night clubs existed but nobody had the money to go to them.

    I never thought the IPA would have to do this. This neo-wowserism is quite worrying. The level of paternalism in the Greens, ALP, but paticularly the L/NP is a cause for concern.

    If I ever did join the Liberals, I would have had no idea what values they are meant to represent anymore.

    The theory seems to be that people would go out earlier if the pubs and clubs shut earlier. True enough, they used to years ago. (but then most people were knocked off by 5pm too, and even then we’d sometimes meet up at a house for a few drinks or tokes before going out)

    The real reason people “load up” prior to going out though , more often than before, is because drink is too bloody expensive in pubs and clubs, and the environment has become too controlling . The wowsers have contributed mightily to this by piling up the regulatory requirements and taxes.

    True. Nowadays I won’t even bother going to a pub or club unless I’ve knocked off a few of my own $2 beeries before heading out. The extortionate cost of drinks in these places is an obscenity.

    Anyway, as has already been noted, the ‘coward punchers’ are invariably not pissed in the first place. They’ve ingested other, more toxic substances.

    So what if they were? Punish the puncher not the punch-drinker.

    nerbs – I’ve always demanded severe punishment of the dickheads perpetrating the assaults.

    The emphasis on alcohol is a furphy, which was one of my points above.

    A beer at the SCG is $8 a pop. For freakin’ mid-strength beer. In a plastic cup, not quite a schooner. You have to line up for over a time of 1-2 overs of the match. Being watched over a by a 45 kg, 18 year old girl as an RSA marshal.

    So you’re paying at least four times the normal price, whilst the SCG is taxpayer subsidised.

    It is a total freakin’ scam.

    The problem is that thugs are gutless mongrels and they should get 30 year sentences just so decent people can be safe from them. Thugs are simply evil.. born that way and add steroids and no moral fibre and you got yerself a monster that needs putting down. These types of animal think that hitting people is cool, their right and they think it makes people respect them, well they are not respected but hated. When will these lefty idiots see the real world for what it is ?

    When I said right, I meant as they see themselves as having the right to hurt people. Sorry if I confused you :)
