Comment on Dylan Voller’s mistreatment started in Alice Springs by Another Observer.

@ Dalton Dupuy: You say that this happened on the current Government’s watch and Giles must resign. However, it is all over social media at the moment: The ABC once again, changing the news to suit a political agenda, had removed the time stamp – the date on the original video 12/09/2010.
Whilst I don’t agree with or condone the treatment of anyone in this fashion, what really makes me sick to my stomach are the “activists” and political parties who are using this to beat the CLP up.
The CLP deserve heaps of criticism, and in my humble view, GILES should be booted out the door – but my guess is that we will see The Greens use this as a platform to signal their moral virtue.

Dylan Voller’s mistreatment started in Alice Springs
@ Fred: With respect: “… here is no reason why business people like Steve Brown can’t take on some of these people as apprentices and show them life skills …”
Why is it private enterprises’ place to socialise and give life skills to people?
How about turning your focus on the continued failure of the school system and families who are turning out these people?

CLP pushes for oil & gas, including fracking
The arguments here over who is right or wrong are really moot.
The real question is how are we as a Territory going to pay for the services that our citizens need / demand.
If selling gas is the only option, then we sell gas.
We can no longer expect taxpayers in other struggling regional areas of the country to subsidise us $5.28 for every $1 we collect in GST revenues.

And just to highlight my personal views – I didn’t vote for the ALP because of their views on fracking / 50% renewables (which is totally unaffordable).
I voted for them because they weren’t Adam Giles.


Town gets a say in its economic future as $2b cut hits home
All of these comments here about “our” loss, but what about the loss of those that actually pay the GST? $0.30 for every $1 collected in WA, whereas we receive $5.28 for every $1 collected.
The only answer is MORE private industry, but I fear that we are pushing it up hill, when we see that the NTG is still using government owned / operated facilities to compete with private industry (sentenced to a job program), and we have not for profits competing against industry for work, and activism dressed up as business.


CAAMA radio: questions on Hampton appointment
Are we getting to the point that we have too many snouts and not enough troughs?


Shock resignation as radio station ‘Aboriginalises’
If this is true, it is simply shameful.
But coupled with the “Special Measures” that the NTG has implemented for jobs with government it is not surprising.
I was raised by my parents and encouraged by my teachers to believe in leaders who said things like:
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Sadly, aided and abetted by social justice warriors and successive governments of both stripes have reduced some of us into thinking that this type of behaviour is OK. It’s not. #shamejob


We need to bring trust back to government: Dale Wakefield
Congrats to Ms Wakefield.
Whilst we are having this frank and fearless debate, can we have a little chin wag about the public servants at the ABC, and the Don Dale situation being used to influence voters.
I’ve looked and looked, and no where in their charter can I see that they are supposed to be the propaganda wing for the Green and Labor parties in this country. I do stand to be corrected though.
