Comment on Government alcohol policies a giant hangover by David.

The NT Government has extended special measures for a further three months in Tennant Creek to allow things to settle down and the Tennant Creek residents to decide on what the next step should be.
Why should it be left to the Tennant Creek community to decide the next step for them?
Alcohol issues and violence are a Territory wide problem that we are all well aware of, along with all forms of costs associated with it, not just in money terms alone.
And it’s not unique to Tennant Creek. The NT Government has the power to legislate like any government, so enact legislation that is uniform right across the NT to get on top of the alcohol scourge to control it with effect.
Quit kowtowing to the liquor industry and listening to inept advice of spin doctors.
In the end it’s down to government to act in the best interest, well being and safety of all Territory people, So stop piss farting around the edges and get to the guts of it.

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.
