Comment on CLP pushes for oil & gas, including fracking by Hal Duell.

It seems Shane Stone is joining those other tired, mostly retired and now irrelevant politicians such as Tony Abbott, Tony Blair and Hillary Clinton in harping from the sidelines.
I especially like his call for the fracking industry to be governed by world’s best practice and science-based regulations.
World’s best practice has failed to protect water aquifers all around the world, and science-based regulations is just another way of saying you can’t criticise what I’m saying because I have science on my side.
Bullshit. Anyone not liking what one scientist says need only shop around. It’s never hard to find a contrary opinion.

Thank you.

Anzac Oval: hand it over, says NT Government
So much for those wanting a seat at the table. Looks like pretty thin fare to me.
This raises another question. Every move CM Gunner has made on this issue has been to dictate divisive non-options. We know the NT Government is heavily in debt and probably lacks the funds to build this gallery. So has that been his plan all along? Has he intentionally queered it to get out of an election promise and push the onus of its failure onto the ASTC?

Alcohol floor price may breach Australian Constitution
It is a source of continuing amazement that any attempt to rein in our use of alcohol is met with obstruction and derision.

Police want parents to stop youth crime
One reason, perhaps the biggest reason, why government authorities are scared shitless to do anything about the kids running wild in Alice is they fear being tarred with the “stolen generations” brush.
Why the Indigenous authorities do nothing is anyone’s guess. Mine is that they are scared of them, or scared of the payback that any action on their part would generate.

Council poll says ‘no’ to gallery at Anzac Oval
Multiple devices? Multiple addresses? Sounds like Putin did it.
