It’s not a failed education system. It’s just that the people won’t go to school.
They need to stop being pampered and get them to take responsibility for themselves.
If the literacy of these people is only the standard of a grade 2, who is going to employ these people?

@ John: Well said. There are alot of fudged figures around the place just so people can keep their jobs.
Can you also look into the Indigenous working for the dole? As these figures would be fudged as well.
Signed off that they are working when in fact they are not actually working.

@ John. Are telling me they are all crooked? The rest of Australia would be appalled how the tax payers’ money is being wasted.

You cannot keep blaming the system. That is the biggest cop out I’ve heard. Indigenous people have the best opportunity.

We need more police. True or false?
False. We do not need any more police just police who are going to work.
Remember the issues in the NT are mostly Indigenous crimes. We need to control the Indigenous. Where are we going to get the funding for extra police when the NT is broke?


Flag on the Hill: When No became Yes
@ Concerned Rate and Tax Payer: Well said! My family have been in the great wars. We do not recognise the Indigenous flag.

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.
