It’s no surprise. Never seen a state / territory run so poorly.

The Territory is broke
It’s laughable as the Territory wanted to become a state. So much for self governing. Nothing has been achieved. Too much money wasted.

Firm ‘no’ from PM, Scullion to bailing out ‘bankrupt’ Territory
It’s about time the Commonwealth had opened their eyes. The Territory, especially Alice Springs, is a black hole when it comes finances.
It is time they start raising their own revenue as they have relied on Federal funding for far too long.
The rest of Australia is starting to wake up, that investing in the Territory is not good value.


We need more police. True or false?
False. We do not need any more police just police who are going to work.
Remember the issues in the NT are mostly Indigenous crimes. We need to control the Indigenous. Where are we going to get the funding for extra police when the NT is broke?


Flag on the Hill: When No became Yes
@ Concerned Rate and Tax Payer: Well said! My family have been in the great wars. We do not recognise the Indigenous flag.

If crime has become part of culture in this town as one reader writes, why then are we wasting tax payers’ money in services to the Indigenous, such as police, hospital, ambulances etc.
Let’s reduce the services! Save money. The problem is they are getting TOO much!

@ Hal, you cannot keep blaming the government for this. There is more money spent on the Indigenous people than any other in Australia.
We need to review what the Aboriginal corporations are actually doing for their people and spending their funds appropriately. Not hoarding the funds for their own use.
It’s time the Indigenous people and corporations take some responsibility for their children’s actions. Our police force and the law e.g. judges need to enforce far greater punishment. Puttitng them in a detention centre is a holiday to them.
Alice Springs has the most police per capita, come on what’s the problem?
Do they need more training or are they there just for the money?
This is not a new problem. People are just taking care of their own pockets and do not want to solve the problem or it might mean a loss of jobs.
