Comment on No Turnbull Christmas present for CDU by Fred the Philistine.

Long overdue. People from other states would be appalled on how much money is wasted in the NT. The NT owes more money now than in the history of the NT virtually the NT is broke! Far too many people on sit down money and over service to the Indigenous.

If crime has become part of culture in this town as one reader writes, why then are we wasting tax payers’ money in services to the Indigenous, such as police, hospital, ambulances etc.
Let’s reduce the services! Save money. The problem is they are getting TOO much!

@ Hal, you cannot keep blaming the government for this. There is more money spent on the Indigenous people than any other in Australia.
We need to review what the Aboriginal corporations are actually doing for their people and spending their funds appropriately. Not hoarding the funds for their own use.
It’s time the Indigenous people and corporations take some responsibility for their children’s actions. Our police force and the law e.g. judges need to enforce far greater punishment. Puttitng them in a detention centre is a holiday to them.
Alice Springs has the most police per capita, come on what’s the problem?
Do they need more training or are they there just for the money?
This is not a new problem. People are just taking care of their own pockets and do not want to solve the problem or it might mean a loss of jobs.


Diversification tipped to make millions for cattlemen
@ Pseudo: Unfortunately, the more you produce the less money the grower receives.
I have to say, feed lotting cattle in the NT would not be so successful, due to weight loss in trucking the beasts down south to market.
We did have an abattoir in Alice Springs once, but this was not so successful.
Feed lotting cattle in the NT do better if they have adequate shade.


National Indigenous Gallery advisors: ‘Release full report’
I think it is time the indigenous fund the art gallery themselves or their respective land councils.


New abattoir for Alice? Some cattle men pushing for it.
There’s only one thing for it, let the cattle men put their own money in to an abattoir and run it.
