    Why are they removing the lock-out? Cut it down earlier if you ask me, 11pm lock-out sounds good.

    Perhaps it's not so much the time though, but rather the venue? These sorts of trouble clubs promote violence, drugs, and promiscuous behaviour. The solution may be to encourage the old-styled pub, as opposed to dark pits with electronic music and ecstasy pills ...

    The solution is to decentralise the night life as then you don't get the transgressions as people move around and mill.

    But all the do-gooders and old fogies forget that they were young once and can't handle any noise in the burbs regardless of what it is.

    I'd say you'd get a fair reduction in drink driving as well if this was the norm again.

    I can sympathize with the old-fogies and do-gooders (perhaps I am one? Doubt it, I'm hardly a nice person :)) though; as loud parties late at night can be quite a hindrance to a good nights sleep! I hate it when the neighbours have a party on a Saturday night, just terrible :eek:.

    I would question as to why so many young people feel the need to get so wild and rowdy though?

    All they need to do is charge the Licensees who serve grog to drunks, but they wont do that will they. No that might upset some big boys so stuff around the edges trying to make it look like you're doing something.

    Because they like to socialise and the stimulation that night life brings?

    Never had that sort of requirement?

    But people like to dance, listen to music etc. A whole heap of things. Not any different to any other generation throughout history.

    Should move to Perth or Adelaide Nyden. Sounds like you'd fit right in. ;)

    Well... I had to be finger printed before I went into my regular haunt on the weekend.

    It seems to be the norm these days.

    And I find it quite unnecessarily authoritarian and quite scary really.

    I don't think such draconian measures should be imposed on anyone or any business.

    People at some stage just have to take responsibility for their own actions. All this baby sitting, nanny state garbage is just the result of that mentality as an expectation.

    I know you were insinuating something about me there Chops, but I have been to Adelaide and I just love it :p:

    Well, perhaps stimulation is part of the problem? Too much of it! Music that's too loud and repetitive, alcohol, drugs, the list goes on. Well, my idea of a relaxing night is a rental video, some popcorn, and perhaps a bottle of bubbly :)

    Although, if I moved to Adelaide - I would miss my beloved casino too much :)

    The thing is, some people's casino is a club or a pub or whatever. They get the same stimulation from being out in public at night that the oldies do with the flashing lights of a poker machine.

    I see a lot of live music, but also like to go to certain places that play music I like - not repetitive at all... Pretty hard to lump it all as one thing.

    My opinion is that social groups that would not normally be together, are forced together, against their will, because of the imposed centralisation of night spots, and hence trouble.

    I think the role of drugs are overplayed. I've never experienced any widespread problems with violence with the heavy drug taking crowds. Quite the opposite in fact.

    The main variable seems to be the CUB crowd.
