Roxon to approves national price--for Alcohol
plan for uniform rise of
up to 75%
Cheap wine a thing of the past for Aged pensioners who like a tipple with a meal.
The government has over reacted to heavy use of alcohol by certain groups in Australia.
They have overlooked a growing population of older people who are not able to buy a $10-$15 dollar bottle whereas they can buy a cask which will last them a fortnight or a few cheap bottles for the same price.
Typically they are using a sledge hammer to crack an egg, it would be nice if for once government looked at the whole picture and what the affects might be on oldies.
Limited may their life style be, but lets not deny them a tipple now and then because some people somewhere in Australia, can't handle alcohol.
