Comment on Match our works with our wonders by Bronte Zadow.

What is the price from refinery? Then there’s transport, government excise plus GST. Then fuel retailers get their share. The quantity off fuel sold in Alice Springs is not great. We have had service stations go into receivership. Most people do not use a lot. But don’t forget, some of the fuel excise goes to welfare in Australia. People working are a minority.

There is plenty of work out there for them. Tidying their own communities would be a start.

Tourism: let the battle for the big spenders begin
With tourism you need to lift your game. I have been around the national parks and facilities. They are poor. Go to Victoria and you will see good facilities. As for service in Alice Springs it is poor. The other night the wife and I went out for a drink. The bar staff could not even open a stubbie without it all going down my shirt front. So we decided to go to Lasseters and it took bar staff two stubies to get a glass of half flat beer. I would say poor is not the word.
