Comment on WA communities profit from camels, not here by Toby.

Apparently, the office of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) is being quietly downscaled. That is the office that was established following the Intervention, to do a better job than ATSIC did in its days.
Well, the PM&C is a failed experiment too. Indigenous affairs with the Turnbull government it appears, is not a priority.
In the scheme of things, it is relegated to down the back somewhere.
States and Territories to take over. Anything established to do with Indigenous affairs, is always an experiment.

Aboriginal people will either forever remain on welfare or forever be “trainees” or both while others control their destiny. 30 years involved in Aboriginal affairs, a good number of those working for a Federal government department for quite a number of years on government funded training and employment programs, we believed we were making headway way back in the 1980s and through the 1990s (remember self determination?) where emphasis was on employment.
Yet today, we still see “training programs” for Aboriginal people no real jobs though. Continual training of Aboriginal people is an industry for everyone else. There are big bucks in it.
Unfortunately some people have now become conditioned to others doing almost everything for them that many have become idle.
Land councils fit in just nicely there as it serves their purposes well.
