Steve” “Constitution of Australia which allows the government to make and implement laws based on race”.
It’s a double edged sword, this exact section allowed the Government to do what they did to the one race.
If this aspect was removed they wouldn’t be able to finely focus on the helping the Aboriginal people, they would need to use a broad sword which would affect everyone and cost 100 times the amount. For all the wrong things the government does it does mean well.
I think they just need better consultation before acting. Much like the detention centre Royal Commission, which was set up the morning after a TV show aired (which turns out was biased and inaccurate).
I’m not saying there weren’t wrong things happening that needed to be looked at, more that they should have investigated the facts prior to committing $50m on a Royal Commission.
End of Rant.

Most youth crime down to locals, not bush visitors
Well said Ginnia. The government is failing in its responsibility of ensuring a safe environment for its people.
Oh and I’m sure most people don’t care where the people committing the crimes come from, they just want it to stop and punishments to reflect the town’s interest.

Wow John, I didn’t know anything about the whole situation but what you have said certainly insinuates something …


Warrant for police search of construction firm office
Richard and Laurence, I’m not sure what you are reading but it looks like they are just informing us on a fact, they aren’t alleging anything.
I hope there is nothing wrong and maybe it’s just something that has nothing to do with the running of the company.


Master plan for town, reconciliation plan for Australia Day
The Flags should stay as they are, they represent something that shouldn’t be trivialised with [by] adding another flag for location reasons or any other. There is nothing wrong with adding an Aboriginal flag anywhere else in Alice, maybe even a huge one on the ranges or even a huge statue up there! I feel people pushing the adding of a flag to this specific location are just after publicity and trying to stir trouble. In a town that already has enough of that. I’m sure these same people will try to pick apart what I have said to try to create an argument, when what we need are ideas and constructive thinking.
