Comment on Sunset on Intervention in 10 years by Paul Parker.

Commonwealth needs look in the mirror. Commonwealth’s compulsory five year leases will end, claiming government (which?) is now to negotiate longer term voluntary leases.
What have they been doing to date? The Commonwealth refuses to acknowledge the problems.
The Commonwealth refuses to address causes of the problems.
After decades of Commonwealth abuse of authority, their clearest result is their failure to ensure effective tenancy leases for residents, and their failure to enforce public health, safety and other standards.
Shame on the Commonwealth!
Commonwealth failure to ensure tenants provided with valid residential leases is result of Commonwealth legislation.
Required is amending sections in Commonwealth legislation.
Commonwealth EXEMPTIONS enable, indeed encourage, certain NT corporate landowners to be EXEMPTED, from their responsibilities as landowners and as landlords.
Commonwealth EXEMPTIONS prevent them being held accountable, particularly in housing and tenancy matters.
Commonwealth EXEMPTIONS discourage resolving the problems, indeed prevent them being resolved.
Australians at federation, then again in 1967, overwhelmingly declared their intent that no legislation within their Commonwealth shall qualify the rights and or responsibilities of any Australian using racial identification.
Still the Commonwealth cites racial identification for its methodology.
Shame on the Commonwealth!

Call for public to monitor police at bottle shops
I do not support uniformed police being stationed at take-away alcohol outlets.
It is the responsibility of licensees within their premises to ensure compliance with requirements as set out in the legislation.
If licensees find it difficult to provide adequate security during certain times they need be temporarily closed during those times.
I support police attending to charge individuals and those licensees who breach banning provisions.
