Comment on Surprising conservative on council: Jacinta Price by Evelyne Roullet.

“The only thing that one really knows about human nature is that it changes. Change is the one quality we can predicate of it. The systems that fail are those that rely on the permanency of human nature, and not on its growth and development. The error of Louis XIV was that he thought human nature would always be the same. The result of his error was the French Revolution. It was an admirable result.” Oscar Wilde

To err on the side of caution is not good enough in this case.

Fracking OK, but under ‘strict laws’ – Gunner
Domenico Pecorari: Gunner does not care about the next elections. He probably has a good CEO job or consultant reserved for him in the mining / fracking industry like Adam Giles with the pastoral industry.

@ Ban Fracking: Have you forgotten 2012 NT elections?
I was the Green candidate for Greatorex and was very upset when I was told I had to make a deal with Labor. Nothing I could do, but then I quit the party after the elections. Since then I do not trust any party.
