Protesters in Australia have successfully helped to overturn a new law that banned “stylish” bags from being worn on flights.
The new law would have meant that airline staff could no longer approve certain bags without going through a simple step of inspecting them. Other penalties could have included removing baggage handler uniforms or enforcing “no face filters” policies.
New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian has told the Daily Telegraph it’s a case of “ultimately, we’ve made a call to the people of New South Wales. They’ve responded and seen fit to change the law.”
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the law was “like putting a stop to all mid-air food preparation.”
And, home brewing is also in the spotlight as city and country councils are deciding whether liquor licences should be given to approved homebrewers.
FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports on the home brewing brewing issue from Australia:
Let me get this straight. Since kids don’t trust adults with the kitchen gadgets, a legislative thing has been enacted in Australia which allows the same city, state or town to limit the products the new “pre-packaged” kids are allowed to use when in a store.
Federal Liberal MP Eleanor Turner argues with all the options available kids deserve to choose the product of their choice. So, she reckons kids should only be allowed their choice in one of two ways: pre-packaged adult products and packaged foods from own-brand foods.
We’re continuing to push forward on this issue. Over the next couple weeks, the Home-Brewing Movement Australia’s committee is planning on holding a home brew festival to help push the industry forward.
