About time the Liquor Commission was reinstated.
Are there any Aboriginal members on this new commission, the people who are subject to and affected the most by grog? Should have seen Q&A the other week.
As far as online ordering of grog, Aboriginal people have adapted quite well to modern communications technology and use it to good effect like everyone else.
It is known grog has been ordered online. The Chrisco Christmas hamper to name one.
The new commission has a job ahead of it not just to listen to people but act in the best interest of everybody.
Grog running is a scourge that needs greater attention and much harsher and realistic penalties. This being inflicted on people by black and white grog runners.
These are just some of many things the new Liquor Commission may be confronted with once they have found their feet.

And Fred, Aboriginal people have constantly been subject to all sorts of social experiments and are still subjected to and you want more.
Come up with realistic solutions mate, not racist rubbish all the time.
The Aboriginal voice has been killed off by government policies and what we see is a result of hopelessness felt by Aboriginal people saddled with the rubbish CDP among other things, that causes more hardship than good, enforced by a pompous, out of touch Minister of Indigenous Affairs.

If any budget cuts should occur, it should be within the top heavy executive positions in government.
There are too many highly paid fat cats on $100,000 to $200,000 and maybe more, positions often offered to interstaters who know bugger all about the NT.
What exactly these highly paid people achieve for the NT is questionable. This is money denied to police, health, education etc, etc.
