Mr Di Natale’s vague answers and non-answers to Erwin’s questions …

Comment on Greens on Pine Gap: Move towards non-aligned foreign policy by John Bell.

Mr Di Natale’s vague answers and non-answers to Erwin’s questions neatly expose the Greens as a vacuous party machine driven by emotive causes with no clue whatsoever on practical governance.
In the Greens’ re-arranged new world order, if anyyone thinks he or she is disadvantaged, then they are disadvantaged – in stereotyped groupings approved by the party machine.
That’s OK if there is a bottomless supply of public funding. At the moment, roughly 60% of Australian families pay no nett tax … on the public purse … supported by the 40% who earn wages and pay taxes.
All reasonable people agree with principles of fairness for all.
However, the Greens clearly lead the political pack in their unwillingness to bite the bitter bullet we know as financial responsibility. Not in the Greens’ lexicon.

Sleeping on the floor in over-crowded juvie
In Victoria, stats released last week show that the 15 to 19 age group has the highest rate of violent crime.
If juvie detention centres in the NT are bursting at the seams with teenagers who assault guards, surely this tends to suggest that around the country, this age group is in serious danger of breaking down the sovereign borders of restraint and authority’s control.


Remains of missing man found near Yambah
@ Alex Nelson. Thank you Alex. It was a very sad situation. I have often wondered about the two young lads who found him and how they must have felt.

This brings to mind the finding of a human skeleton in the early 70s.
Up on the cliff face of the MacDonnell Range near Heavitree Gap, stuck in a cleft, an old .22 by his side, ragged remnants of clothes, with pre-decimal currency in the pocket.
He had been looking out over Sadadeen for quite a number of years, discovered by young lads climbing.
I cannot recall if identity was ever established, whether it was suicide or an accident.


Business group may establish ‘federal’ prison in The Centre
@ Carly. Your rather crass comment is perhaps better suited to the Twitteratti social comment medium, rather than in this respected cyber news medium?


Business group may establish ‘federal’ prison in The Centre
Strewth. A Federal prison in the Alice. The mind boggles. It could be filled immediately with Feddie ratbags and bushrangers for whom warrants are still outstanding from Traeger Park days of the 60s, 70s and 80s.
I can think of a few lads to be cell block chiefs. And then there are the Eover boys, the Pioneer lads, the Soupies … the place will be chockablock in an eyeblink.
They will have to throw away the keys.
