Coincidentally they’re looking for a name for it 🙂

We could call it Pube.

i really dont know how you can claim to “feel safe” in that club, seriously.

I’d say come out with me to Mooseheads and see how long we’re in there before I get abuse hurled at me based on my appearance to prove a point. – But Hey.

Cube is safe completely for people who get s*** hurled at them because of how they look or who they want to be with.

Thats how it is, and thats why gay venues still need to exist.

I just think it’s sad people are so ready to shut the club down when it actually provides a great place for people to feel safe and comfortable with who they are.

i really dont know how you can claim to “feel safe” in that club, seriously.

If this bar gets shut down, a niche market will open up and i bet someone will see the opportunity to open a new club.

I think one of the things you will find and probably get upset about is, there is a higher represented amount of persons in the LGBT community that take illicit drugs, it’s not a generalisation, or a lie, it’s a fact. Until that problem is fixed, then yes, places they hang out generally have a high amount of drugs, it is just the way shit happens.

While that may or may not be true (reference?), it is an interesting approach you suggest.

Stat’s show that drug use is much higher by people with mental health issues too (chicken or egg?). Do you suggest police target psychologists offices?

Then why such the need to shut down cube why not shut down mooseheads or icbm or academy? I am pretty sure not all of the owners of clubs in canberra are in running for australian of the year? It just seems to me when you own a straight club more people are willing to overlook your problems in the past then if your in the lime light. Eg remember the bouncer who bashed a guy to death in canberra? I bet you couldn’t resight his name off the top of your head…don’t let here say and the media tell you how to think.. I have faith in you to think for yourself =)

1. If icbm, mooseheads, academy owners are dealing drugs, stabbing people, and buying stolen goods, then YES they get the same dislike by me.
2. link to bouncer bashing please. I’ll add that to my list of places to avoid & criticize on riot act. I’ve been in canberra since 07, so i wont know events before that.
3. stop turning everything into a homophobic argument, has NOTHING to do with this discussion. If Maurizio didnt have an extensive wrap sheet then he wouldn’t be getting criticism.

Well now that I know your whole arguement maybe I shouldn’t of said what I did… I never said they only raided cube because it’s a gay club I said you only wanted to close it down because of this.. which in retrospect was probably an off witted answer to someone who thinks it should be shut down. I just think it’s sad people are so ready to shut the club down when it actually provides a great place for people to feel safe and comfortable with who they are. Ps to all the whiney girls who are demanding my apology that’s as close as you get… your not my mother and I could give two… well you know… what you want. =)

no, everything you “heard” was in your head.

There was no homophobic comments made, nor was there any mention of the fact cube is gay bar. My issue isn’t with the bar, just the owner who has “history” with police.

You should apologise, the poster said nothing homophobic and you hurt your cause when you throw this accusation around with no basis.

If anyone should feel persecuted it is the dance fraternity, do you seriously believe the police targetted Cube because gay people go there, seriously get some perspective.

I never said that…

you can tell your a female because you listened to half of what I said and turned it into your own story.. I do not believe the police acted wrong in anyway or in a homophobic way, they were doing there job to the full extent of the law. I believe that people are so ready to write off the club because of the “alleged drug activity” and because of what it stands for…Davo111 and me have come to an understanding.. he doesn’t like morris… that’s his issue and I have realised the error of my statement but it still seems abit unfair to bring the club into…for example a kingston club got hit.. why is no one writing shut it down! but I guess my examples need to be more thought out at 12 am.. I hope your pantys are alittle untwisted now

Wife hangs up.

i would have said “yeah sure, ill be down in 20min”, then called the police.

Im sure the police would have been happy to hear that an underage high girl is inside cube

Davo111: It’s not good to take Captain RAAF too seriously.

Regarding the raids in question, does it really matter if people are taking drugs in nightclubs? Don’t the cops have anything better to worry about?

What else do you propose the drug team targets, if not drugs, genius?

Crime?

Drug cops weren’t born that way, Tooks.

Here’s a scoop: selling illicit drugs is still a crime in this city. Whether you like the drug laws or not, they’re here and they’re not going to change any time soon. While this is the case, most of the public (ie non drug users) have the expectation that police will enforce the laws. Don’t like it? Then lobby the Govt to try to make a change.

BTW, if you don’t think people popping pills with unknown ingredients is a health issue, go and speak with someone in the ED.

He should be in jail and it should be shut down. Down with criminals like him.

totally agree

Im sorry all I heard is im a homophobic bogan with a narrow veiwed opinion?

and then I heard ” totally agree that im a homophobic bogan with a narrow veiwed opinion aswell”

Im so glad I took those classes in bogan it’s helped me understand so much on here.

First of all this is all alleged… Like said before I can allege you two only agree with eachother to hide your love for sodomy. is it true? probably! but im sure if I put it on the news a few people would believe me and what do you know! you two are butt humping eachother, the joys of the media.. anyways my point is this and simply this.. all night clubs have a reputation for something I dont hear you up in arms trying to get them shut down. but wait it’s the gay nightclub ! shut it down shut it down!

Interesting turn of phrase. Hold on while I make an allegation.

“bundyjack27 is a pink unicorn from outer space.”

Now everyone knows you’re an alleged pink unicorn from outer space.

This really happened and those arse clowns at the Cube deserve all they get!

About a week ago, while I was away, the phone rings at my house at 2:30am. Wife answers it, half asleep. Person on the other end says,

“It’s the Cube Nightclub here, can you please come and pick up your daughter Michelle, she is drunk and high and we need to get her outta here!”

Wife says “Um, I think you have the wrong number…”

Cube “No we don’t, this is the number she gave us, come and pick her up please!!”

Wife “Um, no, my daughter is in bed!”

Cube “No she isn’t, she’s here and she’s under age, come and get her now!!”

Wife “Look, my daughter is not at the Cube, she is in bed, you have the wrong person!”

Cube “Can you go and check that your daughter is in bed, because she’s here at the Cube and she’s drunk and on drugs!”

Wife “No, I’m not going to check if my daughter is in bed because I know she’s there, plus she’s 12 years old and her name isn’t Michelle, you have the wrong house!!”

Cube “Oh’, well what do we do with this girl?”

Wife “I dunno, call the Police and give her to them?”

Cube “We can’t do that, we’ll lose our license!!!”

Wife hangs up.

mate did your mommy not hug you enough? is this why you make up storys to get attn from strangers? I find many flaws with your story and I have a fair say considering I have been going to cube for many years and at one point worked there. secondly why did you trick a woman into leting you reproduce? tisk tisk tisk ! thirdly your stupidity makes me sad. I need a drink now
