Student Drinkers Persecuted

Student Drinkers Persecuted

Dear Sirs,

I wish to bring to the notice of fellow students, the treatment by the management of the Royal Tavern of its student customers.

Apparently filled with a desire to elevate the status of its clientelle it has resorted to persecutory tactics on anyone who shows the vaguest appearance of being a student. Regular student customers are subjected to lengthy weekly interrogations and age checks despite the fact that their ages should by now be known to the management. Students have been thrown out on occasions even though able to provide evidence of being over 20.

We intend to take preventative measures to combat this form of social persecution. Students are asked to gather for an end of term piss-up at the Royal Tavern Dungeon Bar on Lambton Quay at 4pm, Friday, October 5.

For god's sake turn up or we shall be back to the old idea of students being able only to drink in slums and hovels of bars.

Yours affectionately

T. Aldridge.
