Hi all, just doing some sorting of old files at …

Comment on Grog stats may be useless as they do not include online and mail orders by Ian Sharp.

Hi all, just doing some sorting of old files at home, came across a copy of a Bulletin article “Ringbarked in the Alice”, 5 pages … so a major feature story, by Lenore Nicklin, published July 10, 1984. On the very issues being canvassed on this website. Two km law had just been introduced, Lesley Oldfield (RIP) was Mayor, and Bob Durnan’s beard was still red!
Worth a read, for those interested?

In reply to David Chewings. Quaint spin? the 1984 article is interesting background, not sure it is spin for today’s NT Govt.
As for the Rothwell article you refer to, that was a very one sided piece of journalism … as I recall he described Damien Ryan as ‘hapless’, Adam Giles as ‘cerebral’, only quoted people from one side of the debate, and failed to disclose his relationship with one of the persons whose views were given prominence. I don’t put much credence in that article. Cerebral? Crikey, fair suck of the sauce bottle!

Nothing like a good bog event to test and build character … and to make drivers more wary in future. Well done the coppers.
