I’m sorry but when I see the term “whitefella” used I get annoyed.
I know you aren’t allowed to have feelings when you’re a white fella but I do and being put in the same bucket as the “whitefellas” that are being talked about annoys me.
Also the fact no one is looking inwards when the two year old was violated annoyes me too! Is it the Territory Families’ fault and not the person doing the crime or others around who would have been well aware of the situation but neglected to care more or do something about it to ensure it wouldn’t happen?
I think the Aboriginal is a culture to be proud of, well at least the many years ago it was, the term pride gets thrown around a lot nowadays but I’m not seeing a lot.

Good luck trying to cut spending. The NT public service has a large portion of its spending dedicated to our first people.
Unfortunately (currently) they take up a larger than proportionate amount of time from our police, hospitals, prisons and a lot more services supplied by the NT Government.
Their culture doesn’t meld with modern culture so we can’t expect to treat them with modern techniques.
The question is how to we get a round ball to fit into a square hole? The answer to this will save many many millions and lives.

Sounds like the start of backing out of the project altogether. The old “they don’t want it so we won’t do it now” as if they were ever going to.
It’s been something for them to talk about for Alice Springs whilst they have been in Government without doing anything else for the town.
I doubt they ever intended to go ahead with it, just dangle the carrot so no one ask what else you are doing for the town.
