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?

There’s more to renewables than sunshine
Meanwhile, throughout the world, there is a growing realisation that the great climate con is all about the money and where it is flowing.
How much longer are people going to put up with this renewables fiasco?
It seems to have escaped a great number of politicians throughout the West that business = tax revenue and the more businesses that are driven out of operation by escalating costs the less real tax there is.

Ratepayer, do you want your money back?
They can give the damned money back!
We are taxed to the gunnels by all levels of government and enough is enough.

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?
