Comment on Shires: either revenue must go up or expectations, down by Paul Parker.

Agree with Bob Durnan: little logic exists in Commonwealth’s puppet string controlled NTG charade being played out.
These are NOT growth towns, NOT even communities.
They are zoo cages under Commonwealth control with Commonwealth appointed agents, the Central Land Council, acting as zoo keeper.
Little likely economic, legal or social basis exists to establish viable private businesses.
The reason is simple, these Zoo managers do NOT want any private developments.
Issuing leases provides accountable rights and responsibilities, so Commonwealth exempts themselves and their zoo keepers from issuing valid leases for houses and other developments.
The entire process to obtain and maintain leases is then corrupted.
Real victims are those forced to negotiate this charade, along with intended beneficiaries from these zoo management schemes the “Traditional Owners” as both residents and beneficiaries they remain denied their basic rights as fellow Australians to healthy communities.
“Traditional Owners” are temporary residents in what Commonwealth purports to be their homes, denied basic civil rights, such as the right to have families live with them or visit them.
The Central Land Council argues “Traditional Owners” have no right to live in a house, no right to have family live with them or visitors visit them.
Commonwealth defends its abusive legislation, and its managers, the Central Land Council, by refusing legal aid, so courts do not allow proceedings to continue towards judicial conclusions.
Clearly “Traditional Owners” are little more than shareholders in these Commonwealth created entities.
The Commonwealth allows these corporate entities to ignore basic legislation, responsibility and accountability as apply to others.
It does this because all this racist behavior remains a product of Commonwealth racism towards Australians.
Such racist behavior is NOT tolerated within the wider community towards fellow Australians.
Unchallenged the Commonwealth soon enough will knock on other doors.

What REALLY goes on in our streets: Youth worker
There is little need to change the criminal code.
There already exists a process used to determine whether parental responsibility is failing or working, and what needs to be done.
Even the best of parents may find themselves in court with their children following a single act of youthful irresponsibility.
Any parent can find themselves with youths no longer prepared to follow their reasonable instructions.
The need is for clearer policy dealing with parents who are irresponsible, and more assistance for responsible parents before they become a minority.
The need is for the responsible “Docs” department aka “Territory Families” with Minister Dale Wakefield and CEO Ken Davies to start attending public meetings with media present in Alice Springs to answer questions then respond to address raised issues, on how these problems are being addressed.
Clearly the NT has become an apartheid state, where the rights, responsibility and accountability of residents appears first determined by racial tags.
Racial tags are the responsibility problem, so not part of the solution.


NT road sealing costs threat to Outback Way?
Perhaps a major contributing cost to the deplorable condition of the existing road between Yulara and the border is that it is NOT part of the public highway.
The Commonwealth’s land rights act needs be amended to enable the NT Government reclaim land required for public roads, the same as other states, with just compensation determined and paid.
It is financial and political irresponsibility for NTG to pay for construction of privately owned roads and housing.
The failure of the Commonwealth to enable such resumptions contributes significantly to deplorable conditions.
These wealthy private corporate landlords need spend their own money, not milk public funds.
The failure to eliminate such a rort contributes to the Commonwealth’s reputation as a government committed to promoting racism and inequality.


Getting screwed
Is the NTG Revenue Discussion Paper clear enough?
Without considerably more public discussion before the [Tue, 23 January 2018] meeting in Alice Springs may there be a wipe-out?

Salt is a corrosive, spread of such corrosion is found with increased salt in the air, as those living closer to salt water soon learn.
We need greater public understanding of effects of salt, how its effects can be multiplied by inappropriate metals or flooding.
We need clearer explanations of the procedures to reduce, and resolve possible corrosion issues over several thousand years.
Even several years appears too long for many politicians to consider.

Will the Gunner government persuade the Commonwealth to ensure the Aboriginal Land Rights (NT) land trusts pay the “Land Tax on Territorians”?
Will the Gunner government persuade the Commonwealth to ensure the ALR(NT) land trusts pay other conventional NT and Local government charges like rates?
The ALR(NT) corporate land trusts remain significantly financially advantaged over other land-owners given the Commonwealth’s exemptions freeing them from conventional land-owner responsibilities.
Equality of opportunity and responsibility requires treating the ALR(NT) corporate Land Trusts same as other corporate or natural land-owners in the NT.
