Comment on Town Council riven by conflict, lack of leadership by Evelyne Roullet.

Cr Matt Paterson, do you really believe that the attitude of our PM, Jacinta Price and Senator Scullion are a good role model for our youths?
In my eyes they are three snobs in the real sense of the term: “Peacocks with no breeding.”
Where did they learn their manners and diplomacy?
Of course the whole town could not have be on the guests list, but the rightful custodians of the town and the councillors representatives of the community should have been on it.
Jacinta, so proud to be Warlpiri / Irish, should have shown respect of protocols and sensitivities.
As an educator I always believe that children should be taught tact: It encompasses many things, including emotional intelligence, respect, discretion, self-awareness, thoughtfulness, compassion, subtlety, honesty, diplomacy, and courtesy.
I did not see any of those elements in the PM visit.
Tact is strongly influenced by culture and because we are a multicultural society tact is important.

Who invite should pay the bill:if the Town Council invited the PM the ratepayers should pay; if Jacinta Price invited him she should pay. I do not give her the title of councillor, because in my opinion political parties are infiltrating local government and pushing their agendas to the detriment of local issues. She was elected as a representative of the whole community not as a CLP candidate
Councillors are supposed to be there for community issues, so unless the PM came with solutions for our problems we should not fork out for the bill.
POLITICAL parties should be banned from local government.

Police said they will interview Morton once he has recovered to learn more about his 17-day disappearance, including how he was able to survive in the extreme conditions. ???
The same way that Aborigines used to survived in Australia before the white settlers came.


The stolen child who went to university
@ David, Posted February 11, 2019 at 11:00 pm: “We need to get some things straight here.
If policemen, holy men of the cloth, miners, pastoralist, vagabonds of the day, had kept their trousers buttoned up and not pursued Aboriginal women, there would not be a stolen generation, that is, children sired by non Aboriginal men as those described.”
Your comment underlines the fact that those children were part of two communities: Aboriginal and European.
I am in total agreement with you, it was a disgrace that those children were stolen from their mother; but in this period of history women of any skin colour did not have many rights.

@ Alex: I think that unless we sit with all our different sources, we will never agree on this point, as even our government states that Cook claimed Australia.
