We now know that the legal drafters for the Northern Territory are not very good. Bans on soy sauce, vanilla essence and mouth wash! What a nanny state!

Alcoholics will drink anything that contains alcohol even risking death with methylated spirits.

There is a great scene in Sunday Too Far Away with a shearer’s cook sloshed on lemon essence. It was in the movie because it was fact but lemon essence was not banned.

Why not just ban everything Natasha Fyles? Will yeast and sugar be next because you can make alcohol with these ingredients? Will bakers shops be raided?
