Comment on Have Minister, Tourism Central Australia acted on tragedy? by Evelyne Roullet.

I agree with you Matt, especially having worked in the tourism industry. I can say that I have heard everything when giving advises some: I am on holidays, I do what I like! I am old enough to know what to do! I never wear a hat and I am not going to start to please you! Are we in a police state that you are asking me what time I will be home?! Do you think I need so much water? You want me to wet my pants?
“The Australian Outback can seem so remote and isolated and planning your self-drive adventure requires a lot of preparation.”
This is nearly on all traveling websites.
Advice from the site of the Alice Springs Tourism Center:
1.Bushwalking
Check the length and difficulty and if walking without a guide, tell someone where you’re going and when you expect to return. Wear protective footwear, a hat, sunscreen and insect repellent, carry a map and plenty of water. When walking read maps and signs, stay on the track, behind safety barriers and away from cliff edges.
2.Dehydration and Sun Protection
Dehydration is a common condition suffered so increase your daily fluid intake to approximately one litre of water per hour. Many parks and reserves do not have a supply of drinking water so always carry water with you.
The sun in the Red Centre is strong, always wear a shirt, hat, sunglasses, and a minimum SPF 30+ sunscreen lotion.
Apply sunscreen regularly, even if cloudy, and stay out of the sun during the middle of the day when the sun is strongest.
What more do we need? We talking about adults who should know how to organise a trip in a foreign land.

Psuedo Guru, I agree with you as this government is really not functioning as is should accept three responsibilities every government has towards its citizens:
1 Protect: The oldest and simplest justification for government is as protector: protecting citizens from violence. Gunner is not.
2. Provide: The concept of government as provider comes next: government as provider of goods and services that individuals cannot provide individually for themselves. Security for our proprieties is a service that we are not getting.
3. Invest in talent: The most important priority of government as investor is indeed education, but education cradle-to-grave. Any child on the street during school time should be taken back to his/her school and absenteeism without medical reason should be treated as child neglected.
@ Dr Ongo: Exactly, they may be Aboriginal or part Aboriginal part European; but then the accused could decide under which law he/she wants to be judged.

Bring back legally customary law and tribal punishment.
Aboriginal tribal law is often seen as harsh and brutal, but it ensured order and discipline.
If Aboriginal people want to keep their culture, respect their ancestors and their law puts them into a dilemma: How does this fit into the contemporary legal world, and how can Aboriginal people also claim equality and human rights?
Aboriginal people could still follow and practice customary law but there is no law that binds lawyers and judges to take traditional law into consideration

… with endless excuses made and programs on offer.
The same tired methods will produce the same outcomes.
All methods? Not yet. Why not community service as punishment? Cleaning parks,streets, town camps, clearing buffel grass which after all is growing on their land.

“These kids are out at night because they don’t want to be home. Home is not safe.”
Not totally true, as I remember very well when I had to put arc mesh on my son’s window to stop him going out when I was sleeping.I can tell you our home was safe.
Like Scotty I think often about the good old school Sergeant. Not only he gave my son a kick up the arse, but locked him up for the night and took him to visit Giles House to show him what will happen if he does not change his behavior. No court, no publicity, and I did not complain but said THANK YOU.

John: Where to now, Alicians?
Into the abyss until the politicians become responsible for their portfolio and their performance: No results, no salary!
They have to stop patting themselves on the back, try to brainwash us with their grand-new ideas.
ACER’s Progressive Achievement approach is used in thousands of schools in Australia and around the world. Let’s do the same with our leaders without waiting for the next election.
