Will Aboriginal councillor be blocked from town camps?
I think so too, Rapscullion, and also his children know they are not different that the camps’relatives.
Camps should be called Estate, as they are part of Alice Springs and not fringe residential area. For several decades Geoff Shaw and his spouse Eileen Hoosan have raised their children and grandchildren in their public housing home with a wide yard and a carefully tended garden.
Geoff Shaw is a decorated war veteran who stay in the camp even so this means he cannot have a beer with his friends in his garden.
Should he too leave his home to please those who really do not understand family ties and culture?

She can if she likes, but why not an Irishwoman?

With great respect I would like to ask why Jacinta is an Aboriginal Councillor?
I believe she is a representative of the all community of Alice Springs.
To tell she is an Aboriginal Councillor is an insult to the other white yellow brindle who had voted for her.
A Councillor is elected on his/her work/merit not on his/her ethnicity.

Tourism, pubs, history and today’s Alice Springs
“The goal was to “create a contemporary hotel by enhancing everything that was historic.” The old Alice is gone so then it’s history.

What we have left is the scenery.

Beautiful, uplifting! Do we really need an art gallery in Alice? A cultural centre definitively yes, but we must hurry before someone steals it from us.

Scotty: The population of Arrernte people living on Arrernte land (including Alice Springs) is estimated at 25,000, making it the second largest of all Central Australian tribes. How many were sitting in front of Centrelink?

Ok so which country? Which law? which flag?
May be Australia (at least the Northern territory) should copy New Caledonia.
It is a territory sui generis to which France has gradually transferred certain powers. New Caledonia was penal colony of the same period as Australia.
It is now governed by a 54-member Territorial Congress, a legislative body composed of members of three provincial assemblies. The French state is represented in the territory by a High Commissioner.
At a national level, New Caledonia is represented in the French parliament by two deputies and two senators.

Mabel, do you have somebody in mind?
Keep in mind that there is good and bad in all ethnic groups and that Australia has been built by convicts and prostitutes!
