The Devil’s Big Day Out

During the Eighties, I dialed 000 one night as half a dozen young men were left lying, stabbed with flagon shards when a fight broke out on a dance floor that I regularly promoted, so imagine my droll reaction when seated in the Todd Mall last Saturday, as I saw a young bloke carrying one of the new "33% more" empties.  I said to my friend, “he’s carrying a weapon.”  Within seconds and metres from our table, he smashed it over the head of another bloke, who pulled a knife.  Simultaneously, a middle-aged woman came up to our table and held the stump of an amputated hand in my face while chopping at it with the other hand. In a comment piece, RUSSELL GUY reflects on the opportunity of Saturday's council election to put an end to the bigger is better mentality in the availability of alcohol.
