Simon’s reform bought with another summer Nightrider trial

By johnboy - 26 August 2010 3

The ABC informs us that the Greens concerns with Simon Corbell’s “reforms” of liquor laws have been assuaged by yet another three month summer trial of the Nightrider trial.

Because trying new things that come and go is a forte of drunks at 4am.

A real night bus trial should really be funded for a couple of years.

What’s Your opinion?

I used to respect Rattenbury – no longer.

This isn’t over yet.

Let’s trial something we’ve done many times before. Great use of our tax dollars.

It’s like bashing your head against a brick wall in the hope that one day it won’t hurt anymore.

So, new legislation which will last for at least a couple of years, and Greens managed to negotiate… a three month trial?

The ACT Govt has already conducted a three month trial of a nightrider service and found that it wasn’t worthwhile. They already had such data when they agreed to the trial, knowing the outcome.

Way to negotiate, Greens. Thanks to this decision, there’ll be extra financial pressures on live music venues which aren’t causing any social problems.

(And I note the submissions for the Regs are still not publicly available!)
