Not our bill

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

I FIND it pre­pos­ter­ous that a group of Air­lie Beach night­club own­ers would pro­mote a free bus ser­vice paid for by tax­payer funds to drive home their pa­trons.

Th­ese night­club own­ers have prof­ited from the pa­tron­age of the pub­lic and if they there­fore feel so strongly about the wel­fare of their pa­trons it is then they, not the tax­payer who should pay for this free bus ser­vice.

It is cyn­i­cal and ab­surd for busi­ness peo­ple to ex­pect we tax­pay­ers to clean up a mess they have cre­ated and prof­ited from.

I will be pe­ti­tion­ing the rel­e­vant govern­ment au­thor­i­ties on this mat­ter. De­nis Beck­mann Can­non­vale
