Comment on Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: it’s not over yet by Mark Wilson.

If indeed, as stated by Cr Satour, that the petition is “a very strong representation of the community that is in support of the flag” it is nevertheless a very poor result for the fly the flag case. While 1000 plus people is significant, it falls well short, indeed even close, to the majority of residents.
Perhaps we need to move away from pressure groups attempting to impose either view and instead get our Alice Springs Town Council to collect signatures and addresses of all interested residents.
The front desk at the council is one way to collect a true feeling over – say – a two week period without significant expense. Out of towners could email their vote.

Global traveller ran out of power only on the Stuart Highway
Would be a real accomplishment if the power he plugged into to recharge was actually renewable power. Most I suspect would have been fossil fuel based. So what precisely did it achieve, I wonder. Think I’ll wait for the hydrogen car.


Gallery business case far from ‘well underway’
Is everyone as confused as me? So, more consultants are needed until they serve up the desired outcome? Maybe the Minister should have said “plans for plans are well under way”.
All sounds quite a fiasco. So, fix the brief to fix the desired NT Government outcome and dress it up as consultancy. I really must be missing something. Silly me. Forgive me, please.


Lhere Artepe director on aggravated assault charge
That we are having this conversation of said assault by a person emerging from the court on aggravated assault charges confirms that naivety aside, that too many people do have the attitude as described by Trevor.
We witness this type of behaviour daily. It is not wholly confined to Indigenous either. Our society has encouraged a sense of entitlement and a tolerance of unsatisfactory behaviour.


Visions from the Centre to light up the Sydney Opera House
How wonderful is this! The Opera House has become such an amazing canvas for all sorts of causes.
I do hope that the space is used for inclusive and not divisive causes of City of Sydney Council and NSW Government.


Will more consultants get tourism out of the mire?
Sorry Local 1, you don’t qualify for a consultancy fee on two grounds:
1. You’re a local and may see our town up close and holistically.
2. You speak too much common sense. Cannot possibly be a bloated “consultant”.
