Wider changes needed to remove barriers against essential changes.
“So the local politicians and education bureaucrats would usually prefer to have the next generation of local children get no decent education than go through the pain of this disruption.”
Offender and prison numbers clearly reflect wider problems, reduction requires significant changes to education.
Paul Frijters suggests necessity to “force individuals to go to schools further away (a big no-no in policy land, particularly when pertaining to Aboriginal kids)”

Critical need is wider reading and participation in such discussions, yet those living in communities with most to benefit remain with limited access.
If Adam Giles and NTG serious about reducing prison numbers, it is essential to encourage isolated minds in rural communities to join the wider community online – particularly the youth. Online participation in discussions wider than their rural and remote communities is critical to educate them.

Obstruction and absence of development in communities demonstrates local Taliban ongoing battle against our liberation of minds and communities.

Once again the Criminal Lawyers Association of the Northern Territory president Marty Aust claims people on custodial supervision orders are almost always housed within prisons because nowhere else is suitable for them.
Is my opinion the Criminal Lawyers Association of the Northern Territory wears racist blinkers on this.
The Criminal Lawyers Association of the Northern Territory’s attack upon the NT Government ignores simple facts.
Decisions to provide leases to provide suitable housing placements for these mentally disadvantaged individuals within or closer to their communities rests with their relevant corporate Land Trusts.
Have these relevant corporate Land justs provided the relevant long term leases?
If not, why not?
What efforts and what successes achieved by the Criminal Lawyers Association of the Northern Territory towards obtaining relevant required leases to accommodate these individuals?
At this time the NT Government is unable to resume land, despite Constitutional requirement for payment of “just compensation”.

Make Oz Day a celebration of the future, not the past
The logical and legitimate historical relevance is that Australia became an independent self-governing Commonwealth nation with Federation on January 1, 1901.
Our formal functions need to stick with the first Federation timetable, nothing before noon, as logical to enable majority recover from their New Year celebrations in time to attend and enjoy.


Australia Day: Alice’s role in it
Fit as well for Northern Territory to lead promotion to replace 26 January with 1 January which is anniversary the establishment of our Commonwealth of Australia.
IMHO requirement we would need to ensure NO ceremonies before noon to ensure all recover from their New Year celebrations in time to attend.


NT and SA amalgamation: Would they have us?
A treaty proposal as little more than a promotion of permanent racism, a promotion of permanent apartheid, a promotion of the ongoing disadvantage of many, within Australia.

Perhaps Alex can explain what each Land Trust as corporate land-title-holder and owner, actually spends building and maintaining housing being used by their shareholders “traditional owners” who do live on their land-title-held land ?
Perhaps Alex can explain what each Land Trust as corporate land-title-holder and owner actually collects as rent to be spent building and maintaining housing used by their shareholders and “traditional owners” who do live on their land-title-held land?
Perhaps Alex can explain the Commonwealth and NT Government financial contributions to benefit each land-trust-titled area?
Please include also the dollars per resident.
