Comment on Alice grog source for huge region by Mark Lockyer.

I see people staggering out of the pubs at 2pm or earlier. The pubs are exploiting people on a daily basis who have alcohol problems by feeding them grog and causing more problems than they already have. Most of the people who are on Centrelink benefits are now unemployable due to their alcohol addiction.
