Far more, such as politicians should have done time for what they have done
but got away with it

Yeah, you have a point, it's certainly unusual for me to be sitting on
the same side of the fence as Boxer...

I guess because I can't see the potential as a real issue. It's
certainly not *impossible* that every pub in NSW will suddenly refuse
to serve anyone in bike gear; but I just can't see it happening
anywhere other than a handful of pubs who have a jumped up idea of
their own status.

I also can't see how it actually changes anything. There are already
pubs today that will prevent people entering based on what they wear.

The only thing that worries me is the possibility that it is being
forced on the pubs - if that's so, I have a real issue with it.

I have no issue with any pub trying to choose who their patrons are.

Could also be that Damien could have been walking through the Cairns
shopping centre
and the looks were not of disgust, but amazement because of the heat

Hang on. According to the facts available we have an explicit list of
18 banned clubs. So the Hells Accountant in his HOG jacket turns up
and the bouncer says no "Hells Angels" and he turns around and says
"is my logo on that list" ? And if the bouncer still refuses him
admission on the basis of being a banned OMCG club member he can lodge
a complaint with fair trading which will cost him $35 and cause enough
inconvenience to the publican to ensure his door apes attempt to read
the logo or at least go find someone literate who can read it.

It's just as plausible a scenario as the Damien "the world is caving
in every biker will be banned from every pub in Australia" version.

I don't know which will happen, but I'm betting on the latter.


The HA could also turn up with their red "81" shirt
which knuckle dragging bouncer would know what that meant?
