News flash- man leaves bar pissed
"A Wellington RSA has been banned from selling alcohol for a day after one of its members got drunk at the club and was caught drink-driving at nearly four times the legal limit..."
Slow new day, huh?
Everyone knows that driving pissed is a bad thing. That is not the issue here.
If there were any consistency in policing, EVERY drunk picked up in town who had come from a bar should result in a prosecution for that bar. [insert Tui ad here]
If all bars lost a day's trading for every drunk that staggered out the door- you would have a hard time finding a bar open at all.
It isn't even happening with people convicted for drink-related offences in other cases.
Why single out the Tawa RSA all of a sudden?
Some copper get their membership application blackballed?
