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 ?

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.

Does Chief Minister Michael Gunner guarantee treatment of detained youths and adults? This should not be qualified using racial identification.

Call for public to monitor police at bottle shops
I do not support uniformed police being stationed at take-away alcohol outlets.
It is the responsibility of licensees within their premises to ensure compliance with requirements as set out in the legislation.
If licensees find it difficult to provide adequate security during certain times they need be temporarily closed during those times.
I support police attending to charge individuals and those licensees who breach banning provisions.

Such logic supports amputating a leg because a toe is sore.
Most persons on Centrelink do manage themselves on their limited budgets, albeit with difficulty.
Restricting their capability is unlikely to improve things.
The problem remains government focus on racist tag games.
Without racial filters everyone can concentrate on actual problems, not grossly over-rated racist symptoms.
