Goodbye Dullsville

Here’s a cause that everyone should be able to get behind. The Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s “Goodbye Dullsville” campaign has been created to fight Perth’s ridiculously backward liquor licensing regulations.

I’m not really sure a petition is going to achieve much but at least it’s good to know they are fighting the good fight.

    I don’t have a dog in this fight, but any measure that encourages drinking to excess is OK by me. Salut!

    I signed that thing a couple of weeks ago and I check back on it every few days. And every time there are between 50 and 100 new names added on. The fact that so many people are signing on in such a short amount of time demonstrates how important this issue is to a lot of people.

    The government plans to introduce their proposed new liquor laws next Wednesday. It would be great if they passed but I’m not going to hold my breath.

    Thanks for supporting our campaign! Just thought I’d clarify one thing – Goodbye Dullsville isn’t actually run by the Chamber of Commerce (although they strongly support liquor licensing reform). It’s run by People for Liquor Licensing Reform, which is a broad-based group made up of individuals of various professions, including architects, lawyers, designers and academics, and small businesspeople, including wine sellers, restaurateurs and cafe owners. The Chamber of Commercie report is on our web site because it is the most cogent argument which explains why reform is a good thing.

    Cheers. Tim Macknay (Convenor – People for Liquor Licensing Reform)
