Comment on Government accused of unfair competition by Royce Williams.

Gilbert, is there any other business type in Australia that can get councils to legislate to try to force consumers to buy product from one specific type of business?
Answer: NO, not one, not ever!
Thousands of businesses in this country have closed their doors because consumers no longer patronised them. Why didn’t councils legislate to force consumers to buy from those businesses? Answer: Because it’s about free trade and freedom of choice by the consumer.
Would you give in with a whimper if suddenly there was legislation to force you to buy from a specific business type whether you wanted to or not? Answer: No!
If you want to try to force me and other people who travel, to buy from a certain business, you are out of luck!
