The Vice-Presidential debate is live on the ABC at the moment..
 
Palin might be a little "down on the farm" but she's very impressive imo..
 
Reckon she's got it over Biden atm..

They thinkk that by banning shouts after 1am, it will somehow cut down violence? It will actually promote more violence between drunken men having to spend half of their night lining up for a beer at the bar rather than taking it in turns.

it also stops people taking advantage of their pissed mate by ordering the top shelf stuff when it's his hook.LOL
 
and for that reason alone, the shout stays.

Good too see they are tackling the big issues when it comes to street violence.
It's not people drinking too much, lack of policing, increased drug use, agressive security personel, soft penalties for offenders....it's "shouting"
 
They have 'shouts in every pub in Australia and have done for the last 200 years, but the violence is not seen in every pub or town

Then chump called in and said people inder the age of 21 should only be able to drink beer and wine. He reckons it would give them a greater understanding of the effects of alcohol before letting them loose on vodka, tequilla, etc.
 
I dont think he realises that 13 and 14 year olds these days already get stuck into vodka and tequilla.

Nothing will stop 18-25year olds sinking piss, they've done it since the stone age. What they need is a zero tolerance approach to assults, drug use and gang behaviour
