Comment on The Territory is broke by James T Smerk.

I agree. This government is doing a not so great job (to put it nicely), but blaming them for the next 10 years’ worth of continued debt along the same lines is sensationalising the issue.
I’m pretty sure they won’t be in government for that length of time and who knows what changes to the economy may happen over that period.
The NT needs new industry developments, especially if they don’t care about our tourism industry which is obvious with the extreme crime in Darwin and Alice.
So get ready Hippies, the government will most likely open up a lot more mining and other stuff in the coming years.

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.
