Comment on 000 police response: nearly 5 mins delay, then more than 13 by Hal Duell.

I am so glad Bob Taylor has refocused this debate. It’s all well and good for the NT Police to answer to the minute, to the second, but what HAS happened to the “horrible armed mob who lay siege to Mr Roberts”?
And who will pay for the damage to the property? I have suggested at other times that the parents of minors should be asked to pay, even if only a small amount each fortnight. With the police and courts largely dealt out of the equation when minors are involved in a proven crime, it’s down to their families to bring pressure to bear on these kids to change their attitude and behaviour.

Megafauna museum: Locals outnumber tourists
Erwin, a minor point, but when these large birds were first discovered a few years ago, they were referred to in the local press as the Ducks of Doom. Much better than Big Bird.


Budget repair: Check out the cost of this load of rubbish
Thanks for the story, Erwin.
You’ve detailed a journey into the bureaucratic maze of “it’s not mine / I didn’t do it”.
Talk about kicking a can down the road!
I also like your suggestion that the NT government sack half its public servants and compel the remainder to do their jobs.
That’s another can ready to be kicked down the road.


Massive horse deaths now a risk to humans
Are you saying, Eugene’s mate, that the dead animals should be left as a community health hazard while CLC asks for someone’s permission to heap them up for burning or for burial?
Or perhaps that’s not CLC’s job or problem, but then it never is, is it?


Massive horse deaths now a risk to humans
In a drought, especially if twinned with poor land management, stock will die. That’s one thing.
Then there’s the dead carcasses to dispose of. That’s the next thing.
Heap them up to burn or bury. That’s a no-brainer.
The CLC is acting like a rabbit caught in the headlights.


All views about gallery location will be considered: Lauren Moss
From time to time political commentary throws up a new and apt phrase. The one I’m thinking of is “nothing burger”.
This whole art gallery shemozzle is looking more and more like a nothing burger.
