Why the alcopop tax is unAustralian

Claire Masters had the following to say in today's Daily Telegraph:
"...where do we draw the line? If we continue with this nanny state mantra governing the masses with an iron rod to protect the few, then where does it end? Don't step on the grass, no colouring outside the line, don't smoke in your car with children (actually I agree with this one) and no drinking in your own home.

You might think that last one was just a glib, off-the-cuff remark but no - that's exactly where it could end."

This is a follow-up to the NSW Government announcing that under radical new alcohol laws to be introduced on July 1, regulation can restrict the sale, supply, possession and consumption of liquor on any premises.
