Comment on NT cost of living $1700 a week by Dr Who.

@ Peter: I can’t think of any state that has reduced car rego, power, water etc when the mining royalties come in.
I have friends in WA and the previous government went on a spending spree, now the state is in a massive debt problem and fees / costs are going up.
The NT I’m guessing would be no different, apart from the fact our water would be at serious risk from fracking.

NT cost of living $1700 a week
Exactly Frank, The majority of people living in the NT are against fracking, it’s just too dangerous to play around with our underground water table, conventional, ok but NO fracking. You cant ever Un pollute the underground water we all rely on! Why don’t the CLP get it?

Pack of girls attacked me, says Chinese on working holiday
Lawrence: I have to sadly agree with your comments, “a whole village”.
Well, let me say as a single father I brought up two boys myself from age of two and five.
They are now almost in their mid 20s, working here in town, good jobs, no issues.
It is hard by yourself sometimes, but not impossible. Time to make these parents responsible and make kids go to school, etc. But it seems it’s all to hard and against the new PC brigade. I can’t see it changing anymore. Sadly.

Not a million dollar dunny
I would rather walk an hour out of town in 40 degree heat than even touch the door of one of those revolting things, here or anywhere.

‘Dangerous, alarming’ property tax strongly opposed by council
@Steve Brown, I couldn’t agree more, land tax in other states is only on commercial property, not residential, council rates in Alice Springs are high as it is, and as you say, if implemented this new tax would go up every year. I thought the government wanted people to stay in the NT when they retired, these sort of added costs will just add to those that leave already… And for the aggravation it will give people (we all hate new taxes) the amount it is supposed to raise is a non event in the scheme of things.

Hot and dry? Stand by for more, tourism.
I have heard many times that the Alice airport has very high fees.
Could someone perhaps actually find out and prove one way or another?
Actually after a long day, now at home I think I’ll try and find out myself. There is more to this than alice airport charges.
ED: Hi “Dr Who.” You will find some answers here.

Ailing economy needs on-shore gas, says Opposition
R Henry: I agree, they MUST know the majority of people don’t want fracking, yet they persist.
It would seem that what’s left of the CLP here is a constant re run of dumb and dumber.
Having said that it worries me that the Opposition is … just not an Opposition.
