BYE TO SAFETY

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - OPINION -

So, the lock­out laws have now been can­celled (“City lock­out laws lifted but Cross still no-go zone”, 8/9).

OK, so now when the next coward punch or drunken vi­o­lent brawl oc­curs in the city and its out­skirts, we can all thank the NSW gov­ern­ment for that hap­pen­ing again. The lock­out laws were put in place to keep us all safe, but be­cause the gov­ern­ment wants to see the drink­ing busi­nesses make more money rather than care about public safety, they are al­low­ing the vi­o­lence to re­sume again, thus putting us all in dan­ger.

How ridicu­lously dis­gust­ing our gov­ern­ment has be­come now, when the most im­por­tant mat­ter to them is how many drinks peo­ple can drink in one night than how many peo­ple can be kept safe go­ing out each night for fun but end­ing up in hospital, or worse, dead.
