Vintners need to take greater responsibility

Once again, we have vintners moaning and whining about losses they say they will incur by not being permitted to sell alcohol Good Friday.

How can one incur a loss when one never sold something on that specific day?

Once again, greed takes preference.

These people are oblivious of the tragedy drink inflicts on families on a daily basis.

Perhaps it’s time that those who sell alcohol be held responsible/accountable for the consequences of their actions ?

It’s time to make the “seller” responsible.
