Comment on Do these two people live in the same country? by Paul Parker.

Our politicians and governments refuse to accept Constitutional restriction on their ability to qualify the rights or responsibilities of Australians using race as their measure.
Commonwealth “NT Intervention” problems continue earlier Commonwealth mass-treatment applied by racial measurement.
Commonwealth obstructs relevant judicial determination processes.
Commonwealth claims it held no Constitutional authority to qualify rights and responsibilities on basis of race, yet it busily did and continues to do so.
Today’s problems result from earlier racial discrimination.
Australian’s Constitution sort to outlaw ALL legislation which qualified Australians rights or responsibilities using racial measurements.
Yet many opposing Commonwealth “NT Intervention” act with concerns for their preferred flavor of racism, not eliminating racism.
The Commonwealth Attorney-General advised Parliament Australia has NO racial tests.
Yet the Commonwealth supports, promotes and practices racism using racial measures.

Do these two people live in the same country?
[****Correction to my earlier comment awaiting moderation.]

Few people disagree some people do need their income managed – partly or fully, to ensure they maintain a roof over their head, and provide them money each week for food.

People go to welfare about this out of desperation, not desire.

The Commonwealth claims Australians’ identification of themselves with any of Australia’s many racial-sub-cultural groups is their valid measure to determine assistance.

IMHO (“in my honest opinion”) most Australians strongly disagree.

IMHO most feel Australians need protection from government assistance, particularly when racism is used as a tool.

IMHO most Australians do trust our Courts in making these decisions, as their state welfare authorities MUST PROVE THEIR CASE for each intrusive management to be imposed upon the citizens thus denying their civil liberties.

Courts can require privacy of parties to be protected, whilst allowing relevant facts be published. We no longer see enough reporting, so not enough public discussion of issues which are raised in courts. Result is less effective, less responsive legislation.

Do these two people live in the same country?
Two faces of racism, are NOT the only views.
Jenny Macklin maintains Commonwealth claim for 67 years it lacked authority to assist whilst at same time they practiced apartheid.
Richard Downs and others believe they advantaged from Commonwealth apartheid policies.
Hundreds of millions of public money spent perhaps could have achieved more if just given as compensation to all the intended beneficiaries of these programs.
Recipients made wealthy who then wasted it could at least look in their mirrors to see whom to blame.
Past 44 years Commonwealth busily promoted segregationist programs.
Schooling is about attending school, with nothing to do with racial identification.
Took government to make attendance a racial issue, then being government they wasted more public money.
Bilingual education was about teaching people to read, using words they understood, whilst also teaching them to speak English, the language of modern Australia.
People remain – in civilized societies – free to study any languages they like, as long as they have the basics needed to live in the wider Australian community.
Bilingual Education was NOT about expanding languages from our past to incorporate explanations of modern science, medicine, technology or quantum mechanics.
The Commonwealth Attorney-General told Parliament NO racial tests exist in Australia.
Yet Commonwealth racist actions include on almost every Australian a form our Commonwealth’s racial test.
Coldly, deliberately, refusing to all a chance to “decline to answer” questions to do with their racial identification. Any those who do not answer are then deemed to have answered NOT.
Why is our answer “Australian” NOT acceptable?
Such is the approach of our racists.
The Commonwealth promotes, supports and imposes also segregation upon families based on racial testing.
Proposed Commonwealth Constitutional proposal is NOT about helping people to fix past wrongs – have already wasted billions doing this.
Proposed Commonwealth Constitutional proposal is to widen up ability of Commonwealth to claim it has Constitutional authority and power to discriminate between Australians using racial identification as the measure.
Commonwealth denies legal support – when required by the Courts, to those who challenge this purported existing authority.
Australians at Federation, then again in 1967, overwhelmingly voted to extinguish, to eliminate, stop ALL racial discrimination between Australians, not widen opportunities for their Commonwealth to practice same.

Student boarding funding restored – for now
Pleased to see funding will continue to support rural and remote families able keep their children boarding at St Philip’s, and other colleges, and so receive mainstream education.
IMHO restoring level of funding is not sufficient.
It’s clear many rural and remote students grossly fail to achieve their potential.
It’s easy enough to provide schools for pre, infants and primary, however secondary education in many areas lacks population to justify secondary schools.
There exists still a failure to provide equality of opportunity in education for rural and remote families.
Alice Springs and other Schools of the Air demonstrate how improved internet enables lower cost specialist secondary educators to conduct rural and remote classes and discussions using video link with local support, but is this currently and regularly provided and used?
Education can ensure equality of opportunity.
There exists considerable room for improvement from Commonwealth, states and territories, each share responsibility for the social disease of failure to thrive in education.

Police want parents to stop youth crime

Perhaps it is time to re-read George Orwell’s books “Animal Farm” and “1984”.
I am prepared to defend the anonymous writers, many of whom am sure possess self-respect tempered by fear of revenge.
I agree it is essential to feel safe, to be able to express ourselves without fear of being judged, humiliated or discriminated against.
However many in the NT demonstrate totalitarian tendencies, with vindictive tendencies towards those who fail to agree with them.
NT politics, particularly party politics, is more like tail wagging the dog, than the dog wagging the tail.

Snouts who think their rightful place is in the trough
Are they planning any leases of new locations to the Chinese?
Perhaps forgetting the not so long ago Giles’s government diplomatic incident involving a lease which strained links between Darwin, Canberra, Washington and Beijing.

NAPLAN a flawed measurement, review needed: COGSO
Clearly Tabby Fudge does not understand the NAPLAN test.
Perhaps neither does COGSO (NT Council of Government School Organisations).
The NAPLAN test is NOT about passing or failing.
The NAPLAN has “No pass” and “No fail”.
The NAPLAN test measures where each student understands the core education principles. Those seeking grade scores for students or teachers clearly need look elsewhere.
This failing, when not addressed, reduces their capacity to learn more complex things they often are expected to learn later.
NAPLAN tests are essential to reduce student fail-to-thrive rates in NT post-primary education.
Each student needs understanding basic disciplines of literacy, numeracy and learning, their NAPLAN result is their learner education license.
NAPLAN tests confirm each understands core basics, certifies each is able to proceed to find their own way further around Australian education where they can improve themselves with further experience.
Many NT students fail their learner education license, yet are still pushed forward.
Later failure to achieve remains a foreseeable result from their failure to understand basic disciplines of literacy, numeracy and learning in Australian education.
NT’s failure to ensure these core education skills achieved ensures many students crash later due lack of core skills to understand enough to advance themselves further.

Police use drone in finding assault suspects
Even smaller drones a great tool for increased police efficiency.
Every rural NT Police stations need a drone with officers trained to use them.
