Sydney following Melbourne

Sydney, in a move approximating civilization, is doing what Melbourne has done for years. Nice.

Under the laws, the new wine bars will not be allowed poker machines

But will they be forced to have Keno? After all, the government needs income from somewhere!

$15,000 for a liquor licence? That's pretty steep. I would argue that such a reduction should help pubs and clubs to survive without having to "go pokie".

And, given the predilection of the blue collar to spend their money at the pokies, I would argue that poker taxes are simply a tax on the poor.
