Comment on Sit-down money: Pointless jobs for the dole by Graeme Lewis.

Well said Bob. Well past time to be rid of the sit-down money concept. Money-for-nothing does nothing for the self-esteem of the people nor for their future advancement.

Fracking interim report: Two bob each way?
My criticism of your report stands. Report facts or editorialise, but make it plain which it is, for all to see. I submit that you failed to do this.
Same goes for what Richard Bentley has posted. Let’s see fact about “methane escape.”
Does such a statement have validity? If so, was it put to the scientific enquiry?
As for gas supply adding to the CO2 burden, does this guy prefer coal? Or does he want to live without electricity until someone builds enough solar panels that will keep the lights on all night. Dreams!


Fracking interim report: Two bob each way?
The integrity of your reporting is compromised by the inflammatory questions inserted into your “factual” reporting of what is in the interim report. The key statement in the published report, is “to sort fact from fiction.” Regrettably so much fiction has been presented to the enquiry. Mark says “be sure to voice your opinion,” but this enquiry is NOT about opinion, but about real science in the matter of the utilisation of a major resource that is badly needed by our nation.
Come on Erwin, again – report facts. If you want to state your opinion, say so, and use a different banner. “Alice Springs News” should be just that!


Supreme Court – the inside story
This is so sad! Courts are in every way a threatening and uncomfortable place for us ordinary people, and this was a wonderful opportunity to get it right. It is a travesty that professional public servants with all their corporate knowledge could not have given the developer sensible guidelines based on case history, to ensure sound planning principles were applied.


I cannot recall, Giles tells the Royal Commission
Such a disappointing response from someone who, as Chief Minister of the NT, always maintained that he knew it all! Shameful.


CLP: Back to the future
Thanks Phil Walcott for your very astute observation. Far more valid than the inane comment of Steve Brown, who obviously cannot see the wood for the trees. The loss of all those elections absolutely reflected the failure of the Giles government to govern for all Terrotorians. “Toxic” indeed!
Shane Stone was a fine Chief Minister who achieved the best-ever CLP election outcome in 1997, and whose positive legacies are well remembered in Alice Springs and across the NT. His work in and for the NT has never ceased, and will continue.
Mr Brown of course was nowhere to be seen at the CLP conference this week – so much for his concern.
