Comment on Murdoch’s Centralian Advocate probes Alice Springs News Online – and engages in selective quoting by Gavin and Joan Carpenter.

If the Advocate put the time and effort in, chased and printed news like the Alice News and had a web page, sales would no doubt soar. Long live Alice News.

With Gunner and Scullion, Batchelor doesn’t need Santa
Batchelor Institute is a huge sponge soaking the dollars thrown at it with little result.
Some 12 to 15 years ago a very nice lady was given teaching qualifications (three years as a full time Batchelor student) with all the raz ma taz to go with it, the congratulations, head nodding, hand shakes, fancy certificate etc.
Good on her, but unfortunately she could not even fill out the simplest of forms when asked.
What hope did the kids she was supposed to teach have in the big bad wide world?
Overall a very expensive and sad situation. What has changed?


New attraction while we can’t look after the ones we have?
Gunner needs an edifice to hang his hat on before he and his Government disappears into oblivion. Will need to get it built quick he way they are heading. Trust the credit card can handle it!


Judge Borchers: no misconduct but inappropriate conduct
The truth hurts! Unfortunately some people cannot handle or face the truth. However, at times one needs to be cruel to be kind. Well said Judge Borchers, should be more of it.


Ratepayer, do you want your money back?
Your’e elected to make decisions council, make them! Just take it off next year’s rates and stop pussy footing around wasting money on how to spend it or how to return it.


Advocate: Getting it wrong on their big day
The Advocate has never been the same since you left all those years ago, Erwin. The investigative part of journalism left with you.
Read it in the “Darwin News” today and the Advocate next week is the current situation, papers not worth reading often.
Like so many things of today, unfortunately the dollar rules!
