The fact the NT Government had to change a law to allow Dan Murphys to build a store so close to a dry community says something creepy. Darwin already has the highest density of takeaway alcohol stores in the country. Why add fuel to the fire?

Let’s hope the independent commission Woolworths (owner of Dan Murphys) commissioned to make a decision to build the store or not uses some decency and common sense and helps dry communities stay minimised from alcohol which causes so much violence in the Northern Territory (34% of people in the NT had experienced alcohol-related violence).
