Comment on Keep your nose out of our business, candidate tells Amnesty International by Hal Duell.

Can anyone doubt that the NT Legislative Assembly would be a better place with the inclusion of Bess Price? And with Alison Anderson sitting next to her? How did NT Labor manage to lose two such dynamic women when their first inclination must have been toward the ALP? Certainly Alison’s was, and I assume Beth’s was – apologies if I got that wrong.
Amnesty and the Greens have taken many admirable positions on both current and past issues, but on the Intervention they have placed themselves on the wrong side of history. It may not be perfect, but as a work in progress it’s already better than what was, and it will get better again.

Town Council riven by conflict, lack of leadership
Just after midnight last night I was returning home from a shift stocking shelves, and I decided to travel up Gap Road. Suddenly, WHOOSH!, a wagon wheel passed me.
And I thought to myself, ‘Self, I wonder what wagon that wheel has just come off of?’


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.
