@ Chalkey Cheese. What you say is true. However, the reason we may never get another Centre based Chief Minister is because of the appalling performance of the current.
To ensure that never happens again, the actual branches have to preselect much better candidates, without the branch stacking to get whom individuals want. Candidates that actually understand the Territory, business and community.
Giles had been here five minutes, had none of these qualities, but worked out the quickest way up was stacking, and off he went.

Greatorex gets the flick
Boundary changes also results in a shift in the CLP party control for the first time since the party was formed.
The branch power base will no longer be Alice Springs, it will be Palmerston and Darwin.
Another fatal blow for the Giles – Tollner circus and their games.

One big difference with your comparison, Alex Nelson: Marshall Perron was a man of substance, conviction and credibility who came to leadership through hard work. Adam Giles is not. He’s antics, deception and lack of NT understanding are very telling.

Darwin port: Captain’s call by Giles rocks boat
Giles slurping from a wine glass, a common practice, speaks volumes. If one photo could define the so called man – that would be it.
He thinks it’s all just one big party. Enjoy the wine Giles. Like our patience, and your tenure, it will run out.

Agreed Jason and Phil. Fracking is a very relevant topic for all locals and their town leaders – including those who what to become leaders. So to suggest otherwise is simply ignorant and out of touch.

Demise of Greatorex hastened by MLA’s departure
It says a lot. The town goes backwards in every sense, including population – and electorates, yet we have the “Chief Minister” from here. Go figure?
Could have understood how it happened with Labor in, but no, it’s the CLP’s watch.

Scullion stays Minister for Indigenous Affairs
Yes, makes sense. An “easy” way for Giles to escape the public booting his heading for – and he knows it!
