The Thursday Quote

“It is time Melbourne’s beer strike ended. It has lasted 22 days. That’s 22 days too long. It is every man’s right (or it should be) to walk into a pub, and say ‘Beer, please’ – and get his beer.
This, anyway, is what I think. The ordinary man should be entitled to get his beer, as he gets his tram ride, his loaf of bread, or his lamb chops. He doesn’t care a hoot about the mechanics of
the process. He is only interested in getting what he pays for.”

“Beer”
John Hetherington
The Melbourne Argus, November 21, 1952
