Comment on Burn, not bury rubbish: Incinerator plan by Observer.

If we are going to burn waste (at an energy plant !) we should at least investigate the potential of energy capture / storage though the process to help offset the incineration.

Police on hunt for young men after ramraid this morning
If a person is unable to call a spade a spade (the police have released multiple photos of multiple offenders) then how exactly can we expect to accurately implement the myriad of discriminatory Government policies and laws under the guise of affirmative action?
Here’s a tip for 2017: Improve your job prospects and help your children have an equal opportunity of a government or trade job / apprenticeship. Tick the indigenous box.
As the comment below indicates, if it is racist to presume an Indigenous person to be Indigenous, the same overly PC attitude applies to presuming a white person is not Indigenous.
2017 – tick the box, break the system!


Boardwalk now a permanent blight on the landscape
The galvanized finish is indeed the end product. No painting or anything further to come.
I have always been uncomfortable with the notion that a sacred tree can have a price tag attached to it. However in this instance, I suspect the TOs (and the general population) would have been better of having a tree or two removed or cut back to allow the construction of a discreet, flood proofed footpath rather than the eyesore which has now been constructed.
A few other notes of interest: The project was designed in Darwin, according to a local structural steel worker the boardwalks were apparently manufactured interstate (good local support to our local steel fabricators) and it appears as if the boardwalks failed to avoid the sacred trees, requiring a costly rework. How much did this cost the taxpayer? $70,000? $90,000? A request to the appropriate department would provide this information.


Bulldoze vile, medieval Don Dale centre: CLP candidate
Steve, you have just gone and destroyed the CLP’s last chance of appealing to rednecks and revenge seeking cowboys.
Who is left to vote for the CLP now?
Certainly not the business community. They are fed up with the dodgy procurement practices, looking after “mates” and discriminatory tendering policies (this, you have gone awfully quite on.)
Dare I say, the only chance that the CLP will even exist come September, is if Giles is dis-endorsed now, the party admits he was a big mistake that should have been dealt with earlier and to stand people of integrity, consistency and critical thinking.
Of course the CLP will still not win, but it is better to start the renewal under your own steam than at the wrath of the electorate.


Palm Valley suffers as buffel intrudes
Cue comment from CLP Araluen nominee, Steve Brown …


Black security guards hired to mask racism?
Your use of the term “indigenous” in referring to Sudanese people is ridiculous.
Aboriginal, African, European, we are all equally indigenous and endemic to the planet.
