The City of Yarra’s ban on alcohol in Edinburgh Gardens resulted in it being a ghost town over new years eve. Without the fuel to encourage them to defecate in children’s playgrounds and to destroy infrastructure, suburban losers went elsewhere.
The basic controversy is how the City of Yarra spent more money this year on preventing the gardens being trashed than they did last year cleaning up after they were trashed. Opinion on the no tolerance policy was mixed, but the consensus seems to be it went too far. But negotiating a common sense compromise with an amorphous yet-to-be mob seems unrealistic. What do you think should happen next year?

Congrats @YarraCouncil for NYE Edinburgh Gardens success. No more suburban dick brains pissing on our park and in our gardens.

@plumpesDenken you can't have joy without alcohol? I think you may have a problem.
