Melbourne venue lockout dumped
The 2am lockout enforced on 46 nightclubs in Melbourne has produced an increase in reported violence and the plan has been dumped, reports The Age.
It seems all the "alcohol-fuelled violence" simply moved to an earlier time bracket.
One problem with the Melbourne scheme was its selective nature – also one of the fatal flaws of the Sydney version.
