Who’s in charge of the asylum? A bunch of tyrannical fools, that’s who

Foster's still has long neck exposed

Surely this time they have gone too far: Now they’re confiscating alcohol delivered to locked-down Australian apartments if booze volume exceeds state-sanctioned limits. You can see from the way this is written, it’s for a non-Australian audience who think Australia is run by despicable idiots.

In New South Wales — a southeastern state encompassing Sydney — alcohol deliveries to apartments under COVID-19 lockdown are being confiscated if booze volume exceeds limits mandated by the Ministry of Health, news.com.au reported.

The powers that be are enacting daily alcohol limits to “ensure the safety of health staff and residents,” the outlet added.

— and it should come as no surprise that they don’t like it….

Residents are allowed to receive a ration of one of the following: six beers or pre-mixed drinks, one bottle of wine, or one 375ml bottle of spirits.

Excess alcohol is being confiscated until lockdown rules are lifted.

Residents can consult with a clinician if they think they need more than the allowed limit.

A Sydney Local Health District spokeswoman confirmed the limits are in place in NSW Health’s Special Health Accommodation where COVID-positive patients and close contacts are sent for isolation, news.com.au reported.


Anyone who is afraid to go out should sit home. The rest of us should be allowed to just get on with our lives.

  1. Gladys had decided to stop doing daily pressers. She’s on the nose. Release from lockdowns looks to be coinciding with the return of parliament in mid Oct. And without those pressers can momentum of media hyperbole of case numbers continue?

    The new Opposition Leader in the State has said there will be scrutiny of the decisions that have been made. If a politician can sound genuine – he does on this. I think the internal polling can’t be good. Two western Sydney members (one state, one federal, but both Libs) have said the curfews/lockdowns must end.

    And Mark Latham is introducing a private members bill that will require all health orders to have attached the health advice. Lastly, the Supreme Court case into the constitutionality of mandatory vaccination of employees etc starts on 30/9/21.

  2. For years they’ve been telling us that 2-4 standard drinks per day is going to, you know the rest. These limits are at least twice that. When bureaucracy meets reality.
    “Residents can consult with a clinician if they think they need more than the allowed limit.”
    So, a script for VB, a nice chianti or Valium. Choices, choices.
