Alf put to rest the mischievous and petty licensing judge’s pursuit of getting me out of the hotel industry by sending him a letter describing to the judge his vast experience of thirty odd years in the police force as a detective and this took him into all the hotels in Melbourne as a policeman and a drinker, he stated to old fool that if the hotel industry had more publicans like me there would not be the trouble that we have today, this man is without doubt the best publican I have ever seen, and he is still learning, he is the type of person we need in the industry, not kick him out, he showed me the letter before he sent it off.  There was no more shit from this petty fool judge after he received Alf’s letter I bet it pissed him off, I needed someone to go into bat for me.
