Comment on Top scorer knocks back Deputy Mayor job by Laurence.

@ Rippedoff Ratepayer: I think I am forced to disagree with your assessment of Mr Cocking’s hairstyle. To me it is no different from the Mullet that I wore as a younger person, remembering that a Mullet was business up front and party round the back.
Mr Cocking’s hairstyle represents his age and life choices, you and I may think they are feral. But he has the courage of his convictions and he has the right to present himself accordingly.
It also allows you to see the true person rather than some gormless robot doing their master’s bidding.

@ Hal: Hahaha. I didn’t catch on at first. Definitely a fashion trend that is totally out of place in Central Australia.

@ Evelyne Roullet: Thank you for putting your name on your posts, but what has that got to do with what I wrote? But thanks for pointing out that my name is a pseudonym, I guess the gig is up and we thousands of Laurences will have to revert to our true name of Laurence.
Describing yourself as a useful idiot is your prerogative and until I see evidence to the contrary I can only accept your judgement of this.
Then quoting Hillary Clinton moved the debate to a whole new level.

Sorry, Alex, you are being a little silly when you say “Presumably they felt they had nothing to lose by indulging in this behaviour and were heedless of the possible consequences of their actions.”
There is no consequence for their actions, they could be “suitable for a diversionary program” or haven’t reached the age of criminal culpability or we will victim blame the criminal offence away. But I guess we are lucky now we can focus on empathy.

I wonder what these horrid people did to these poor misunderstood youth. As we all know they are surely perfect angels and I for one cannot understand why these sweet, misunderstood little darlings have not been canonised.
But I have no doubt it’s their own fault for walking the streets at night as we now seem to have the art of victim blaming down pat.
It’s never the fault of these little arseholes, it is always someone else’s or something’s fault.
How about we all focus on the reality which is that no amount of hand-wringing or “world’s best practice” are going to make an iota of difference.
Can’t wait to hear from the usual useful idiots chanting that it takes the whole of a village to raise a child.

Town Council still blocking two servos: United
Thanks Alex. I totally forgot about the Centre servo where KFC are and the Shell Oasis (sort of) has been replaced by the Coles / Shell servo on the corner.
As usual you are a font of knowledge in regards to Alice Springs! Cheers.

Interesting that you would say that Alex, and please correct me if I am wrong on this.
Since I came to live in Alice Springs we have lost three service stations, Shell Todd, the Mobil Palms and Cnr Smith Street and Stuart Highway, but have gained at least six others (Truck Stop, Heavitree Gap, Mobil Larapinta, Mobil Eastside, Transit Plaza and the Woolies station).
I can’t see another couple doing much damage, but am not sure about the location of one in the Beaurepaires site. Surely we have enough trouble on that corner already.
