Comment on Chamber of Commerce in a grog Catch 22 by Laughing.

I’m all for turing off the tap if by tap you are referring to the non stop river of sit down money that is pouring into the community.
Everyone likes to focus on the end result how to fix that: Cops on bottle shops, BDR. At the end of the day the funding for this problem is being provided by the government in a reverse racist system.
How many of these problem drinkers are being forced to provide details on employment opportunities before they are paid from the public purse?
The old argument that there is no opportunity for these people is tired and incorrect. They have the most services, the most funding and every opportunity in the world thrown at them.
The problem is not the lack of opportunity rather than a system that rewards them for doing nothing.
Time for a 100% quarantine of welfare to basics card. Lets see how many cops we need on bottle shops after that.
