Victorian government’s ‘sober clinics’ are a ‘bizarre decision’

The Victorian government’s recent decision to build “sober clinics” following the uplifting of a ban which prevented public drunkenness was a “bizarre decision”, says former Liberal MP Nicolle Flint.

“What does make sense over there in ‘Danistan’, the former beautiful state of Victoria, this is a really bizarre decision I think by the Andrews-Labor government,” she told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

“It’s going to cost the taxpayers in Victoria something like $50 million – maybe more – over just two years to essentially run a trial.

“So they get rid of the crime of public drunkenness and start new centres to send heavily intoxicated people to so that they can sober up.”
