Comment on Gunner re-opens the Rivers of Grog floodgates by Interested.

The retailers have a responsibility to comply with the relevant act and regulations relating to their liquor license.
They are a lawful business, selling a legal product.
A business is essentially established to create profit.
Crime, anti-social behaviour, health outcomes – they are the responsibility of legislators and the appropriate government bodies – not a mere retailer.

Steve, I agree on many things you say – however on this occasion, not so much.
Buffel is the botanic cane toad of our region. It is a weed, plain and simple.
It is not the most palatable or nutritious of pastures.
Yes, the sheer quantity and rapid growth rates may make it a valuable food source at times, however our landscape would certainly be better off with out it, even if it means we need to reduce the stocking rates.

Ntharipe Observer: I am sorry you read my comment that way. The descriptions are solely leveled at the MLA(s) and not at Bruce the constituent.

Evelyn, the comparisons don’t end there! Nero was ruled by and for his mother. Gunner is ruled by and for his chief of staff!

Police drop MLA’s trespassing charge
Bruce, NT Labor are determined to stand up perpetual victims, identity politicians and social justice warriors. Unfortunately the most minor of challenges to them sees them wither – hence your totally uncalled for trespass notice.
What a disgusting thing to have occurred to you and what a sad indictment upon our democracy and freedom of speech.
If a politician cannot handle an energetic conversation with a constituent, what chance does she have standing up for her constituents against the mindless Labor caucus and their overarching bureaucrats.
To think Sandra served in the army! God help us if we are ever challenged by more than words!

Vowles, McConnell and Collins dumped from Caucus
Gunner also thought it wrong for the sacked trio to question the capabilities of Nicole Manison to handle her growing portfolio.
Let’s be honest, Nicole is in charge of two of the most important areas – police and treasury. Neither of these are going particularly well.
Perhaps we should look at the experience of the minister. Nicole is in her late 30s, entered parliament in 2013 at about 33 years of age.
So between leaving school and 33 you would hope she achieved something big? From what is publicly known, she studied PR and journalism, worked for a while in HR and then became a media advisor to past leaders Henderson and Lawry.
So she has never run her own budget, with her own money in her own enterprise and nor has she ever had to manage the security and ongoing crime in her own business. Yet now she is in charge of both of these things for the entire NT Population.
Experience? Nil. Performance to date? Fail.
The chief’s long list of experience are much better though. A bachelor of arts, some work at Big W and then a career working for Clare Martin.
No wonder things are so dire with the caliber of this mob. Put the business experience and fiscal management of the Labor cabinet together and you wouldn’t be able to run a chook raffle.
