The public service keep the Government wheels turning … cutting …

Comment on Town gets a say in its economic future as $2b cut hits home by Old Maate.

The public service keep the Government wheels turning … cutting positions opens it up to mistakes / corruption and hurts the local economies.
In saying that I’m sure there are some positions that should be cut i.e. the ones “Appalled” talks about, bigwigs.

Daniel, the amount is calculated on the cost of delivering services over the state / territory.
Hence the NT is a lot bigger and costs are higher, mixed in with numerous little communities all over the territory.
WA’s amount takes into account their mining boom dollars they received. It’s all fair and reasonable.
The thing that affects everything is the mining boom in WA has finished up so there will be more sharing of the GST coming in the years to come.
This is only the start.
The only way for the NT to get more income would be to create a revenue stream via mining … which they are slowly doing.

Mark my words, two months after it opens there will be no extra foot traffic and it will just be a sad experiment, much like millions spent putting a road back in there.
I also give it a month before there are broken windows.


Morrison announces cash injection for NT
We need a formal process for people to complain about Government decisions and they being investigated (for real)?
I feel like things like this happen and they just get brushed under the carpet and forgotten about, when they should be looked at, especially if they have persuaded the decision making process.
Stop with the secretive back door deals, how about we all be honest about what we do, especially if you are payed by the taxpayer. Or is that too much to ask?

It’s obvious there is something they are not telling us a about the location, kick backs or future plans, otherwise why wouldn’t they listen to the people?
Why was it rushed with minimal discussion prior to the location being selected?
They had their minds made up well before they “consulted” with the public. Good idea just gone wrong.
