Comment on Huge fence around Parliament is OK: Scullion by Evelyne Roullet.

They want to be cut off from us, feel safe but do not care for us, so we should cut them off next elections.
Parliament House is the heart of Australian parliamentary democracy, and one of the most open parliamentary buildings in the world.
Parliament House was designed to encourage public access and involvement. It was designed to be both a functional building and a major national symbol. It is “the people’s house”.
Nick O’Brien, a former British counter-terrorism policeman now at Charles Sturt University, said fencing off the slopes around Parliament seemed to be “more about stopping civil protests than terrorism”.
He is a graduate of the international Leadership in Counter Terrorism (LinCT) program and is currently a member of the LinCT Training Committee.
John Coyne, a former federal policeman now with the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, said fencing off the slopes was “a bit strange”.
Dr Coyne is the head of the Border Security Program at ASPI.
ASPI is an independent, non-partisan think tank that produces expert and timely advice for Australia’s strategic and defence leaders..
While stressing the Australian Federal Police and ASIO may have identified specific intelligence that warranted fences, he said it was “very difficult to see a clear cause and effect”.
The people have the right to know [1] what the treads are; [2] what other methods for achieving security outcomes had been comprehensively canvassed.

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.
The majority of attractions have become merchants, taking away trades from the Mall.
What we have left is the scenery.

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!
