Comment on Advocate: Getting it wrong on their big day by Paul Parker.

Am one of those lucky to have known Erwin about as long as he has been in Alice Springs.
He has my long term respect, often admiration, for his ongoing international demonstration of excellence in journalism.
Erwin, keep it up 😉

Care to identify some remarkably consistent patterns ?
Most easily to accept are possible various disruptions of services in regional / remote communities may be part of a deliberate policy to move a population.
Many suspect governments make considerable effort to avoid providing details, which reinforces conspiracy theories.
Frequently there are other reasons, like late submissions, essential details missing.
Like most assumptions, to actually prove them requires far more detail, which requires more open governments.
