Second Barkly child tragedy highlights need for urgent action
Bit simplistic and unrealistic to ban all alcohol, Phil.
The government gets tax from the sale of alcohol, where is the money going to come from to reimburse hotels, pubs and bottleshops that would be shut down.
Not to mention all the people put out of work in the pubs and delivery drivers, warehouse staff.
And the impact to the tourism industry would be horrific Territory wide.
It would only start up convoys of cars going interstate empty and coming back loaded with grog to sell on the black market.
Prohibition didn’t work before and it wouldn’t work again, just like the BDR.
