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

Oh dear, where to start;
Hal, CLC is a Commonwealth Statuary Authority under the Federal Land Rights Act.
It is bound by all the regulations covering these, and is one of the most rigorously scrutinised bodies of its kind.
WA Land Councils are subject to totally different laws and control.
Alan, camels ARE feral pests. They have been trashing the environment in Central Australia for a couple of decades. Commercial development cannot control the numbers.
Farmed animals may become a viable industry, but despite the efforts of Governments, and lots of public money it hasn’t happened yet.
Trevor, wishful thinking is no match for commercial reality. Even if it could be harvested at a viable cost (from the Simpson desert for example) which it can’t, it is still problematic.
What about the existing meat industries?
Ever heard the slogan “give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Give a man a line he eats for a lifetime”.
Giving away meat would destroy the meat producers in the target economy.

In a flap over flags – a possible compromise?
A great story Alex, thanks.
There is also some significant creation story associated with it that someone more knowledgeable than I could add.
Your suggestion has merit, and I would be interested in a response from the Aboriginal community.


National Indigenous Gallery advisors: ‘Release full report’
Is that the Prof Helen Garnett, former VC of CDU?
If so, as I recall, she is a virologist.
What is her expertise in relation to this project?
She would also be Darwin based.
The mismanagement of the process has the stink of Darwin decisions imposed on Alice as it is.
I have previously written in support of the Melanka site, but with the further information on the vision and scope of the project, I see that the Melanka site is inadequate.
And so is the Anzac High? Hill? Oval? site.
The open space in the landscape near the Desert Park fits the bill, now that we know a bit more.
We need to know it all.


What kind of world is this?
Yes, I can see the similarities now that I look, and perhaps the fictional dream is combining the two somewhat.
Being originally from NSW I always thought of Sturt as being based there, which he was originally, only basing his third expedition from Adelaide.
And he did suffer from scurvy on his final trip.


What kind of world is this?
“From this first story we move to ‘At Failure Creek’, to the perspective of a “land explorer”, recognisable as Captain Charles Sturt: a man in a “weakened and near blind state”, perhaps close to death himself …

… to the dream of the dying man – of a glorious imagined parade down Rundle Mall”

This is blatantly, obviously, StuArt, not Sturt.
