Any change to The Constitution Act needs to be free …

Comment on Will we better understand the ‘Recognise’ referendum than we did the 1967 one? by Robinoz.

Any change to The Constitution Act needs to be free of anything to do with race and will not be successful if it gives special advantage to any race, Aboriginal or otherwise.
One complex sentence could be used to acknowledge that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people inhabited Australia before European settlement. It doesn’t need to be a Bigger than Ben Hur arrangement.
The more changes the government tries to include and the more complex the issues, the less chance of success because people who are confused or unsure will vote “No”.

Four more years of same-same
We needed a council that will focus on council issues and not the so-called progressive issues of gender confusion, revision of history including changing Australia Day, renaming Father’s Day, unbridled immigration, destruction of coal fired power stations and the associated “flattening” of industry as described in our inexplicable signing of the UN’s Lima Accord. It seems that’s what the people elected.


Michele Castagna, 1944 – 2016
To Lyn Watson and family, our deepest sympathies. Michelle was a true example of our human spirit and will be missed, but remembered by all with whom she came in contact.


We have four times the nation’s rate of road deaths
It would be nice to see police enforcing stop signs, failing to keep right or left when turning right or left i.e., driving into the incorrect lane after the turn at intersections like the Stuart Highway and Larapinta Drive.
The idiots who signal to turn right on the approach of a roundabout and then drive straight ahead could also stand some attention.
All of these offences indicate that either drivers don’t care about road rules, don’t know them, or are just plain sloppy. Sloppiness in one part of their driving leads to other aspects of sloppiness and eventually traffic incidents.


The green, green grass of the Stuart Highway
Well done by the police. With only two major roads in and out of the Territory, hopefully they can knock off a few more drug peddlers.


Call to show respect for the flag
Flags must be maintained in good repair also. Flags that are falling apart at the seams should not be displayed.
