The Advocate has never been the same since you left …

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

The Advocate has never been the same since you left all those years ago, Erwin. The investigative part of journalism left with you.
Read it in the “Darwin News” today and the Advocate next week is the current situation, papers not worth reading often.
Like so many things of today, unfortunately the dollar rules!

Don’t mess with our treasures, says Alice
I’m not sure it should be heritage listed as the many changes made over the years have taken away the original concept.
My understanding is that if heritage listed any further alterations or repairs would not or could not be done without problems as has been proved elsewhere.
They then fall into disrepair and eventually fall down anyway. Is there another way of saving heritage without the restrictions of total heritage listing?
Great dust storm photo taken from the rear of the ANZ Bank prior to add ons.
Holden car belonged to the chemist Don Brown.
Some great meals had at the walk-in cafe run by Billy Woods in the 60s. Steak and eggs cooked straight on the top of a big wood stove was a favorite.


Vowles, McConnell and Collins dumped from Caucus
Vowles being pushed by the press made more sense in 5 minutes than any pollie has in the last 5 years. Spin is all the current mob know.
Time there was a complete clean out of broken down advisors and spin doctors, all being paid well above their capabilities.


Air traffic: Looking down on Alice
Can’t help but being a cynic, direct flights from China then on to The Rock for 24 hours and back to Darwin to catch the return flight to China, with a short time spent in Darwin and surrounds.
What else have the Government cooked up?
As for the press release saying how good it all is, just more spin and garbage pumped out by half baked minders who would have difficulty getting a real job.


NT Govt persists with push for Anzac Oval ownership
The only thing definite about this art gallery is that the government really has no idea of what to do or how to go about it.
It puts out pollie talk press releases and advertising at great expense that say nothing of consequence.
When some concrete plans, designs and ideas are presented it may encourage people to go along with what is proposed and even be involved with the final result.
Until then bully boy tactics by the government and their minders will continue to get people off side and dig in harder against the whole issue.


Council shoots Anzac precinct gallery down in flames
The council have finally found some intestinal fortitude, well done to all.
Now is the time for the government to start afresh with some genuine consultations, some constructive ideas and plans and a desire to do what they are elected to do, govern for the community.
Has this whole incompetent fiasco been the elected government as such or is the tale wagging the dog as has been happening for years? The beauracts running the place like the famous Yes, Minister?
