Comment on Can Bess Price wrest Stuart from Labor? by Hal Duell.

Two of the more positive commonsensical voices speaking as Indigenous leaders from Central Australia over the past few years, and especially since the Intervention, have been Bess Price and Alison Anderson.
It was put to me the other night that one of the better, and hopefully lasting, legacies of the Martin / Henderson ALP government is their turning the CLP into a responsible, positive political party. They have certainly come a long way since their dark days in the 90s.
A really good and timely article, Kieran.

No ‘comprehensive business case’ yet for gallery
I think that whether the art gallery is eventually built somewhere in Alice or, as seems more and more likely, in Adelaide, the whole exercise will go down as a textbook study in how NOT to progress a major project.
I don’t know what this means for the Gunner government, but the longer he pushes it, the more the fable of Br’er Rabbit and the Tar Baby spring to mind.

Panel of just two for controversial Ilparpa decision
What! A social engagement with the PM in preference to a local issue that really matters. Onya, Jimmie and Jamie, ya pair of wannabees.

Cr Melky breaks silence on Code of Conduct complaints 
Onya, Rex. If ever there is a local theatrical adaptation of The Silver Skates I hope you take the leading role.
