    Shall we take it as a tacit admission from administration that positives (prevent untoward incidents to a level that its understaffed departments can handle) are overwhelming in comparison to negatives (loss to the exchequer)?

    This is absolute unwarranted. The city administration decides to close bars and wine shops for every silly reason. And most of the time people end up storing more alcohol at home and tend to drink more. Time for mature thinking.
