Comment on Braitling preferences ‘not a get Giles exercise’ by Evelyne Roullet.

So? Do leaflets matter? Can voters make their own decision without them?
Are these expensive scraps of propaganda full of over-inflated claims and dodgy data really necessary, or in any way useful, to the running of an election?
Why do we have to have more than one per party in our letter boxes?
We have TV commercials and newspapers for advertising, could not the parties save money, trees and the planet all at the same time?
The one with the note: “Sorry I missed you” makes me wonder, as I have not been out for weeks and I know no one called.
Politicians spend a lot of dollars to convince us to trust them. But the fevered competition for votes virtually compels them to lie to us.

Air traffic: Looking down on Alice
“There will now be less capacity for Centralians to travel directly to Cairns and Perth.”
It has been like this for a longtime: Qantas wanting to fill up its planes had Cairn – Perth directed to Alice Springs with a feeble excuse and Alice Springs Perth cancelled with another excuse.
Then, everybody was put on a Melbourne flight, made to wait for hours for a Perth flight. Tough, like if your holidays or business were ruined.

Travelers around the world go to specific places for their attractions / landmarks.
What would be Paris without the Eiffel Tower? Sydney without the bridge, the opera house? London without Big Ben?
What will be left of Alice in years to come? Nothing – it will be just a town in Australia.

Ms Moss is not an artist and has no idea of what makes Alice Springs a town like Alice.


Anzac Oval will be site for gallery: Gunner
Mister Gunner is playing with words, splitting hair.
Normally a precinct is a building and its boundary like a school precinct: building and playground. Vehicles cannot enter a precinct (except service vehicles).
An oval is a play/sport ground. Part of our oval will become included in the precinct and the rest will be car parks joined to the gallery precinct.
It will not be big enough for a large tourist bus, caravans and the local wishing to park near the CBD.
