Have pity on those objecting to new liquor licenses in NSW

The outer western Sydney suburb of Casula is one of those communities.

    This is such an important issue and we are not hearing enough about it. Good on you Di for getting the story out into the public domain.

    It’s an appalling way to make big bucks, booze and pokies go together and rob the community of its safety and savings. Criss is an inspiration and the community can be pleased they have her, but she’s up against a policy of allowing more alcohol businesses that we don’t need. There is also a big story that needs to be told about fetal alcohol syndrome.
