Comment on Advancement in the bush: no more ‘one size fits all’, says Minister by Paul Parker.

Agreed with Ms Havnen’s observation: “Far too many programs continue to be fragmented, short term and uncoordinated”.
Strangely Ms Havnen fails to recognize, acknowledge, reason for widespread poor coordination, short-termism and under-development of basic resources and services in these communities remains ongoing refusals to issue longer term leases. Recently changes flowing through where leases are issued.
Ongoing refusal of valid leases deters provision of services, opportunities and development in communities.
Misdirected to governments are criticism of “inefficiencies, duplication and fragmentation of the pre-existing approach to the construction, maintenance and management of remote housing”.
Criticisms need be directed to our private corporate landowners (eg Haasts Bluff Land Trust) and their property managers (eg Central Land Council) except where leases transfer responsibility.
Land owners remain responsible for buildings constructed upon their land except where this responsibility is transferred through leases.
IF these private corporate land trusts seek less responsibility, they need issue more valid leases.
Or is government now responsible to provide houses to all citizens who own land ?

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.


Prof Gerritsen: We got it wrong from the start
Prof Gerritsen correctly claims that residents of the Northern Territory would have a decent future if the Northern Territory was abolished.
Prof Gerritsen incorrectly suggests Commonwealth resumption of control as a solution.
Commonwealth racist tampering caused failure to thrive.
Commonwealth rejected equality of opportunity, instead promoting apartheid and racism.
Commonwealth ensured simple improvements were rejected, as they failed to satisfy Commonwealth apartheid policies, so ensuring each attempt to improve eventually became just another failure caused by racism.
Most failures within the Northern Territory of the Commonwealth directly result from the Commonwealth’s ongoing promotion of racist apartheid policies.
For NT residents the best solution is to rejoin it to the state of South Australia.
