Comment on Ayers Rock Resort loan not from the public purse by Giddyup.

If the government and the tourism industry was able to respect aboriginal culture and people that would be the start of a whole raft of good outcomes.
But sadly that seems impossible for them.
I think in the next week or so Giles or one of his gang will be making an announcement about several million dollars of funding for an indigenous cultural event on Arrernte land that was thought up and planned before any Arrernte people were spoken to.
They have caused a lot of anguish and concern amongst the community but are continuing to drive their bulldozers through our unique living cultural heritage.

‘Government’s secret decision making’
So Mr Gunner is telling us there is no reason to vote for many of the Labor pollies as they won’t be allowed to represent us in important decision making in Parliament. What do we pay them for if they aren’t allowed to represent us?
