Comment on Voting for change? Don’t hold your breath. by Hal Duell.

Two of the points I find most curious about the coming election are:-
1) Can Abbott really be as bad as he has been painted? Many in the ALP comment loudly and often about the personal and viscous nature of the attacks on Gillard when she was PM, but were they any worse (or less sexually oriented) than the constant portrayal of Abbott as a hairy-legged Neanderthal man?
And 2) Of the two contenders for PM, which one quietly goes about his practice of spending a couple of weeks a year on a remote Aboriginal community helping with unpaid and unheralded labour?
Warren has had his chances. A change there would do us all a world of good.
And thank you Cameleer for your valid comments, nom de plume and all.

Looks like Wazza’s back
Jacinta was always on a hiding to nothing. Her own perceived sense of entitlement didn’t help her cause, but she was up against Snowdon who arguably doesn’t do much between elections, but once every three years he does win elections, and he wins them well.
The question now is, will Jacinta return to Council?

NTG asks AAPA to consult with custodians on gallery & new site
There are a lot of empty shop fronts in Alice right now. Perhaps we could have a pop-up Council. That might work.

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?
