Comment on NT Govt. pays the rent, Intervention Mark II, arrest tourism slide, and bid to conceal child abuse? by DN.

Re your comments – Nice little Earner.
I know that you might not publish this comment Erwin and appreciate that fact, but at what point does the taxpayer begin to get a return on their investment?
Across the country at the moment there appears to be an expectation that workers will pay and pay &and pay. When you look around the Territory – where are the tangible returns for the taxpayer? It certainly isn’t in affordable housing for our young people.
I think that it might also be time for the NT Government to work out who is going to pay these bills. Given also that we see all and sundry out there telling us how good we will be as a STATE. Don’t we need to be able to generate our own revenue to support that? Or do people still think that the Commonwealth will foot the bill?

CLP pushes for oil & gas, including fracking
The arguments here over who is right or wrong are really moot.
The real question is how are we as a Territory going to pay for the services that our citizens need / demand.
If selling gas is the only option, then we sell gas.
We can no longer expect taxpayers in other struggling regional areas of the country to subsidise us $5.28 for every $1 we collect in GST revenues.

And just to highlight my personal views – I didn’t vote for the ALP because of their views on fracking / 50% renewables (which is totally unaffordable).
I voted for them because they weren’t Adam Giles.

Town gets a say in its economic future as $2b cut hits home
All of these comments here about “our” loss, but what about the loss of those that actually pay the GST? $0.30 for every $1 collected in WA, whereas we receive $5.28 for every $1 collected.
The only answer is MORE private industry, but I fear that we are pushing it up hill, when we see that the NTG is still using government owned / operated facilities to compete with private industry (sentenced to a job program), and we have not for profits competing against industry for work, and activism dressed up as business.

CAAMA radio: questions on Hampton appointment
Are we getting to the point that we have too many snouts and not enough troughs?

Shock resignation as radio station ‘Aboriginalises’
If this is true, it is simply shameful.
But coupled with the “Special Measures” that the NTG has implemented for jobs with government it is not surprising.
I was raised by my parents and encouraged by my teachers to believe in leaders who said things like:
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Sadly, aided and abetted by social justice warriors and successive governments of both stripes have reduced some of us into thinking that this type of behaviour is OK. It’s not. #shamejob

We need to bring trust back to government: Dale Wakefield
Congrats to Ms Wakefield.
Whilst we are having this frank and fearless debate, can we have a little chin wag about the public servants at the ABC, and the Don Dale situation being used to influence voters.
I’ve looked and looked, and no where in their charter can I see that they are supposed to be the propaganda wing for the Green and Labor parties in this country. I do stand to be corrected though.
