    At least one measure of alco-strife, street violence in and around licenced premises late at night, appears to very much support closing earlier (say 1am in lieu of 3 to 5am), lockdown after say midnight and no drinks sold within 30 minutes of close. The results coming in from Hamilton and Newcastle CBD, NSW, are strong.

    Maybe Croakey’s contributors will see more results in their emergency admissions stats than can ever be extracted through the obscured glasses of RTD statistics.

    I am not in favour of 6pm swills by any means, but if the justification for very late trading hours is social opportunity, then can anybody produce reliable statistical evidence that the person who you meet after midnight still looks good the morning after, with a hangover?
