Lockout Laws

Recommended Posts

fifi

Why is it that Sydney is now the only city in Australia with lockout laws?  That stupid f**kwit #casinomike has left politics now, so why hasn't Gladys Berejiklian gone and repealed the law?  Is she just as corrupt as him and wanting to line her pockets with the cason's money?

Come on Sydney, we need another march to show we won't roll over!

Actually Sydney is not the Only city with lock out laws.. it's just the only Major City with lock out laws, Newcastle have had lockout laws for about 10 years now, they were the first city in the country I believe to trial these laws.

Oh, thats terrible that they would model sydney after newcastle!  How did newcastle's nightlife fare after the introduction of the laws?  Did it die like sydney?

It killed it!  Not quite as bad as the Sydney scene, but it really killed it!  Clubs closed, others rebranded, this website shut down (it was known also as newcastle party.com), the record stores closed, people lost their jobs, the clubs that did stay open just played commercial rubbish to try to keep people there.  It was terrible.  It still hasn't recovered, especially the commercial rubbish everywhere!

I feel like the lockout laws were not really a solution anyway. There are always fights and people having heated discussions on my walk to a train station in the CBD. :|

Agreed!  The problems that #casinomike was trying to use as a reason all happened BEFORE 1am anyway!

hey @Kaytland, did you used to work for ozclubbers before as a photographer when it was newcastleparty?  I remember a Kayt who used to take photos of me back in the day ;)  And with such unusual spelling for your name, just putting 2 and 2 together

Even the threat of lockout laws here in QLD made alot of venues wind down their acts and artists i noticed.  Two even closed because of the threat of the lockout laws.

      Has anyone actually decided to start fighting the lockout laws that killed our vibrant nightlife nearly a decade ago?  I know there was some discussion about it late last year, but like always it seems to fall on deaf (read: religious / aged / nanny-state) ears
