@ Scarlett Grant, “Confused”.
To remove any confusion, Scarlett, I do not want any senseless vandalism of property committed by anyone or group of persons to continue in our community. I am incredibly concerned that if we allow this to continue the damage will be to our whole way of life and not just to property. The town is being tested to its limits at the moment so we need to unite. The Government must act and act quickly to mitigate this risk by ensuring sufficient resources are provided and if needed introduce or upgrade existing legislation. Where government fails to act, I would consider that as negligence and the community can and should consider a class action for damages.

@Richard, “the government isn’t to blame”.
Richard I am not blaming Government, I said “the Government is the one we must turn to lawfully to arrest this problem”. I see Government as being able to control funding, resources and can make or amend laws to govern our community. You must agree that if this ongoing destruction of property and lawlessness by rampaging groups of people continues, it will bring this town to breaking point. I am seeking an immediate action from Governtment to put an end to this crime and lawlessness spree by this gang. I would also welcome any and all organisations who can and should assist to join and support the community.

Shame shame, soon the insurance cost will be so high that the ability to run a business in this town or insure your home or car will be impossible, if not completely prohibitive.
There is a role here for all of us to find a solution, but critically the government is the one we must turn to lawfully to arrest this problem and now.
We rely on our decency and our values, as a community we have chosen to live by a democratic political process and as part of that comes an obligation on those elected to act in the best interest of the community.
Keep us safe is one priority, ensure our economy is sound which means keep cost of living down, support small business, support a health system, an education system.
Essentially we want to live in peace and harmony with others.
We trust in our judicial system, our police, our judges and our parole system.
However this is a clear indication that the whole system is broken.
Where the government fails to act immediately, I strongly suggest we the community seek to take action against the government in the form of a class action: The government needs to reimburse all costs for damage town-wide from this rampage, plus reimbursement for excessive insurance costs. For example, body corporate managed strata title units used to pay $30,000 for insurance. Quotes we now get are around $130,000 for a unit complex.

‘Cannibalising’ Vowles is childish, says CLP
The failure and bad decision making by an out of sort ALP should not be seen as CLP success. You still have to earn it.
This time Territorians are not just going to hand it to you by default just because you happen to be a challenger.
Time for change does not always mean go back and appoint a previously failed group.
Bad way to do business.
Territorians will be demanding a new political party made up of qualified, capable people with experienced corporate and community leadership experience.


Vowles, McConnell and Collins dumped from Caucus
Well all I can say is, CM, don’t let the door hit you on your way out.
Congratulations, you have well and Truly trumped the previous CLP Government on their inability to lead Territorians. Well done.


Gunner not the best Chief Minister we can have: McConnell
The ALP have successfully surpassed previous CLP government successes.
That is to say they are now well on track to be a one term administration.
Whoever thought it was a good idea to attack three members of your caucus should have their advisors badge suspended.
The challenge remains who will stand up for Territorians?
If we must have a political party, surely we can come up with better than the previously sacked CLP.


Suddenly everyone is talking about 1Territory
The ALP have successfully surpassed Previous CLP Gov successes.
That is to say they are now well on track to be sacked in 2020. The challenge remains whom will Territorians appoint to lead them out the s#@t?
Surely not the previously sacked CLP.


Code of conduct allegations ‘vexatious, frivolous’ – councillor
@ Steve Brown: On the code of conduct matters and to your strange comments “open disclosure may not support your publicly declared statements”.
I appreciate your attempt to justify your earlier story about you being served a code of conduct [complaint].
However, the public are aware that on this occasion it was multiple code of conduct complaints that were made against multiple elected members, served all within days of each other.
These matters have been reported on widely across many media outlets and very accurately here on Alice Springs News Online.
Cr Cocking and I have been exonerated from all charges. Those charges were dismissed after each councillor was required to go through an exhaustive legal process which involved providing a comprehensive defence, proving that the applicant made baseless, vexatious and frivolous complaints. If it is a full explanation you demand, then which part of “exonerated” don’t you understand?
