Govt wowsers oppose alcohol licence for Twilight Gala

Maungaraki School Special Licence Decision

You have to read this decision on an licence. It was granted, which was the right decision. But the amazing thing is the local Medical Officer of Health opposed it. It shows the wowser culture that public health activists are trying to create so some adults can’t have a drink in the school staffroom during a gala.

The MOH argued that this would normalise alcohol consumption for children, while the committee correctly said that the event is a good opportunity to model responsible and moderate alcohol consumption.

What annoys me is that taxpayers are funding this activism. Surely the Medical Officer of Health has more important things to do than try to prevent a one off alcohol licence for a gala.
