The right to buy liquor

Patrick Coyne, Fish Hoek

To make things clear, I have no connection to Pick n Pay and do not drink liquor.

I have crossed swords with Donald Moore, who is obsessed with this subject, on this before.

He claims it is an historical issue, (but) just because of a need a hundred years ago there is no need to perpetuate foolish outdated laws.

For example, we no longer have public flogging in Fish Hoek. That is a historical issue that no longer exists.

Joan Moore feels that “cheap” wine will attract the homeless. Pick n Pay are unlikely to sell any product cheaply, it is not good business.

It is the democratic right of Messers Moore and James not to buy liquor in Fish Hoek , I have the same democrat right to buy liquor if I should wish.
