Comment on First Nations want a ‘Voice’ enshrined in the constitution by Popwasa anzac.

In this town there are people who have managed to turn the small (or larger) fortunes their ancestors left them into a secure and relatively wealthy lifestyle.
I’m thinking about pastoralists here as the easiest example.
There are other people in this town whose ancestors had their ownership of land taken from them and then worked for rations for the usurper.
They were unable to leave any assets to their children.
It is very easy for someone from the first group to say that we have to get over the past and move forward, it is divisive to look at past wrongs etc. Very easy when your living a comfortable and privileged lifestyle built on the land taken from someone and using their unpaid labour to add value fencing dam building etc etc.
It’s a difficult issue but we can’t just forget the past as if it never happened. Every year a predominately Muslim country (Turkey) lets thousands of Australians visit to commemorate a failed invasion attempt.
But we want everyone to forget the successful invasion that happened here. Lest we forget.

Perhaps we should keep paying as long as we keep making money from stolen assets?

Back to the future with Warren Snowdon
Warren, there’s a clear ongoing demand for gas extraction from whom? For what?
Australia is the largest exporter of gas in the world so we clearly don’t have a shortage.
Who’s demanding we endanger our future? Why are you supporting this dangerous industry.


Price family were sole complainants against Cocking & Satour 
Not the kind of person we want representing us in Canberra.


A change in Lingiari? History holds some clues.
A vote for Labor is a vote for fracking, climate change and poisoned water.
Same unfortunately with CLP. Not a lot of choice in the NT.


Nationals in Canberra run Country Liberals media
So a vote for Snowdon is a vote for fracking, a vote to endanger our water supply and a vote for global warming.
A vote for the CLP is the same thing but they will never change. Labor might if they lose votes and don’t pick up the preferences.
They will definitely be chasing those votes / preferences next time.
Tell Wazza he won’t get my vote or preferences unless he √†nd his party change their line on fracking.


Jacinta Price spits dummy
The sad thing about all this is that the way our system stands at the moment your vote is going to go to either the CLP or Labor.
The CLP is abhorrent but Labor is so crap that I feel I will have to put them below CLP in the hope that they will come to their senses at the next election.
One Territory or Greens then the cupla complete nut jobs, then CLP then Labor last.
I won’t be voting for Jacinta just more strongly against Labor and their support of fracking etc.
