Second Barkly child tragedy highlights need for urgent action
Bit simplistic and unrealistic to ban all alcohol, Phil.
The government gets tax from the sale of alcohol, where is the money going to come from to reimburse hotels, pubs and bottleshops that would be shut down.
Not to mention all the people put out of work in the pubs and delivery drivers, warehouse staff.
And the impact to the tourism industry would be horrific Territory wide.
It would only start up convoys of cars going interstate empty and coming back loaded with grog to sell on the black market.
Prohibition didn’t work before and it wouldn’t work again, just like the BDR.

Being in the industry, it would be great to have someone from NTPFES or police commit themselves to recommending a type and brand of emergency beacon that could be hired out.
I have tried several times to get an answer with no-one willing to commit.
Maybe this is a start for the Department of Tourism to follow on from the Coroner’s decision.
At least it would be a start, maybe along with some posters for accommodation reception areas.


Vowles, McConnell and Collins dumped from Caucus
You couldn’t make this stuff up.
We could have three ex labor ministers stand as independents, joining the other 2 (Robyn and Terry) who were ex CLP.
And Terry was a Chief Minister and Robyn was ex treasurer.
Suddenly the independents could outnumber the Opposition.
Think I’ll sit back with a big tub of popcorn and watch the show!

Does anyone know if Qantas has paid the Alice Springs airport the money that it allegedly owed them?
I know Perth Airport is taking Qantas to court over unpaid fees. I’m sure Alice Springs airport could use the money that’s owed to them if it hasn’t been paid yet.
