Comment on CLP pre-selects Steve Brown for Araluen by Janet Brown.

I would like to remind the readers it was due to the Labor Party in government that starved Alice of funding.
Closed us off to land to build houses. It deliberately stifled us of growth.
The result of years of that has closed doors on businesses ensured our growth stopped and declined so the results caught us.
A new seat in Darwin and a lost to us here in Alice. We now have two seats. Araluen and Braitling. We lost Greaterex. The CLP has ensured land is available to build homes.
New business ventures are about to proceed. Work coming to liven up the CBD.
People will say money pulled from some services. Services that were high cost and little or no outcomes after millions were spent.
We have to fund programmes that benefit our youth our unemployed our elderly our people our communities.
People are important our prosperity is important what is not important is funding organisations that continue to fail and deprive people of real outcomes.
The CLP is gaining its balance and credibility. We now have forward momentum. Voters just have to decide: Do we continue to grow and prosper with the CLP or climb back on the slide heading down and backwards. With Labor at the wheel.
We all have a choice to make how you use that choice will ensure which direction we go. Independents have a place in politics we have all seen the disaster of the federal outcomes where Australians were short changed by deals that got their support.
We are the Territory. We need to grow the regions, that is what makes the city strong. Regions are the base to a good economy and strong people.

Liquor Commission: Lawyer, social worker represent Alice
Russel has made it clear he supports the BDR. He also supports [Dr John] Boffa.
I was sitting next to Russel, me on the right in the photo. Were else would I be?
He supported removing police from bottle shops.
These positions should not be given to persons who have a desire to implement floor pricing. That will affect those who do not have a drinking problem. They have no answer to fix the problem drinkers. So they attack the rest of community.
Russel is okay, his big pay packet can cope with extra cost. What about the working people in Alice?
Just making ends meet with high rents and electricity cost and the rest of extra costs due to living here in Alice.
That’s right. Just attack them again in the wallet that is nearly empty already.
I am sick and tired of this punish he majority for the minority. Bad choice in my book.


Surprising conservative on council: Jacinta Price
The issue of the feminist voice is that it groups together to attack any woman who dares to stand alone and not join their pack of the pathetic victimhood clan. Those who are prepared to throw men under the bus to obtain superiority. At the same time they take the same approach to any woman who defies their rules. Stand strong Jacinta. Victim cards cannot be found in your purse.


Ballooning electricity costs: NT could make a difference
The elitist are always so far from empathy it is amazing that they can bring themselves to notice the people suffering or find $1 for the organisations helping the poor. Hey True But?
Your remarks are display a complete lack of empathy for anyone struggling with power prices. Your comments also display a “I am okay, not worried about anyone else” tone.
I do worry about elderly paying so much on power that they cannot afford eat.
I do worry about the families who are paying so much for power that food is now a luxury more than a necessity for survival.
Our governments have forced this on the people of Australia by their inability to risk manage solar implementations. What a sad world we live in when the life of ours is so easily dismissed for the belief in a ideology based on propaganda. And greed.


Ballooning electricity costs: NT could make a difference
Rising electricity costs are being ignored by government. Why? Let’s go back.
Before solar. In a clear way let’s say it costs $10m a year to run the power station. Then comes solar. More and more business and households get solar. Then over a few years those with solar are paying either nothing or getting a payment from PAWA.
The facts are the power station still requires $10m to operate.
So for example those with solar have removed $7m from payments to the power company.
That requires those without solar to pay the $10m.
Simple maths based on logic and fact.
Governments are hiding their heads in the sand as they know what they have done.
Blaming the power companies and accusing them of price gauging is a lie.
This is purely the lack of risk management of renewable energy establishment.
I raised my concerns when solar first was starting up only to be called an idiot by the then CEO of PAWA.
The NT Government should be paying the difference for their stuff up. So should every government and mostly the Feds.
There is no mystery about this. It is not a conspiracy. It is purely a lack of risk management failure by government.
