Giles threatens to bring the party down if he’s booted …

Comment on Alice CLP branch solidly behind Giles government by Melanie Ross.

Giles threatens to bring the party down if he’s booted as CM but that’s all OK with the local CLPers!
Instead they boot Robyn for having the balls to stand up to the dodgy brothers.
Good on you for calling a spade a spade Robyn – anyone who has had dealings with him knows Giles has no honesty, no integrity.
This is their first step to getting rid of Robyn and Conlan – good riddance to Conlan but Robyn is a decent local member. I live in Gillen and she’s helped friends and family out with quite a few issues.
Gotta ask – just how much did Giles pay to buy the Alice branch?
C’mon Erwin, keep digging.

The Alice Springs Town Council is just become a defacto branch of the CLP.
The CLP bloc just vote how they are told.
What a disappointment you are Jactina Price, I expected more from a strong woman who I thought could make up her own mind and not just follow along your party line.

Just because they aren’t talking to you Erwin doesn’t mean they aren’t talking to people in their electorate.
I’ve spoken to Wazza many times … often to argue with him.

@ Steve Brown: Not envious of you at all. A bit of pity that your boss has dumped you in it over your Opposition to his Aboriginal Affairs strategy maybe.
A bit sorry for you when your boss Adam Giles said you were xenophobic. One of the few times I agreed with him.

@Hal Duell I suggest you take a look at the new electoral boundaries. Namatjira will take in the Alice Springs rural area. To suggest that “Paech has gone of town” is totally incorrect.
Everything I have ever seen and heard from Chansey Paech indicates he’s a man who is passionate about his home town, where his family have lived for generations. Namatjira it’s true takes in a large chunk of the southern part of Central Australia – of which Alice Springs is the major service centre.
To contrast, when Steve Brown talks up its usually in self interest, either as a builder or a land developer.
Perhaps you should stop interpreting others dreams and stick to your own fantasies Hal.

Thanks for the clarification Kieran. I have to admit I forgot to say I did see Eli at the town meeting, so apologies for that. And interesting to know Mr Brown and Mr deBrenni there but didn’t seem to hear a thing local people were saying.
