Comment on Gunner not the best Chief Minister we can have: McConnell by Eli Melky.

The ALP have successfully surpassed previous CLP government successes.
That is to say they are now well on track to be a one term administration.
Whoever thought it was a good idea to attack three members of your caucus should have their advisors badge suspended.
The challenge remains who will stand up for Territorians?
If we must have a political party, surely we can come up with better than the previously sacked CLP.

‘Cannibalising’ Vowles is childish, says CLP
The failure and bad decision making by an out of sort ALP should not be seen as CLP success. You still have to earn it.
This time Territorians are not just going to hand it to you by default just because you happen to be a challenger.
Time for change does not always mean go back and appoint a previously failed group.
Bad way to do business.
Territorians will be demanding a new political party made up of qualified, capable people with experienced corporate and community leadership experience.


Vowles, McConnell and Collins dumped from Caucus
Well all I can say is, CM, don’t let the door hit you on your way out.
Congratulations, you have well and Truly trumped the previous CLP Government on their inability to lead Territorians. Well done.


Suddenly everyone is talking about 1Territory
The ALP have successfully surpassed Previous CLP Gov successes.
That is to say they are now well on track to be sacked in 2020. The challenge remains whom will Territorians appoint to lead them out the s#@t?
Surely not the previously sacked CLP.


Code of conduct allegations ‘vexatious, frivolous’ – councillor
@ Steve Brown: On the code of conduct matters and to your strange comments “open disclosure may not support your publicly declared statements”.
I appreciate your attempt to justify your earlier story about you being served a code of conduct [complaint].
However, the public are aware that on this occasion it was multiple code of conduct complaints that were made against multiple elected members, served all within days of each other.
These matters have been reported on widely across many media outlets and very accurately here on Alice Springs News Online.
Cr Cocking and I have been exonerated from all charges. Those charges were dismissed after each councillor was required to go through an exhaustive legal process which involved providing a comprehensive defence, proving that the applicant made baseless, vexatious and frivolous complaints. If it is a full explanation you demand, then which part of “exonerated” don’t you understand?


Code of conduct allegations ‘vexatious, frivolous’ – councillor
@ Steve Brown: Your judgment of the democratic processes used to elect people is distorted and does not distinguish between the many voting systems in play.
As you are fully aware, long before any election candidates representing political parties usually go through a preselection process requiring the vote of a handful of people.
This is largely a closed door event and completely at the mercy of the factions and deal making that goes on behind closed doors.
This preselection process ultimately produces a candidate who will do what the party tells them to. It is at this preselection process that you should be angry about and not the people for electing a party badged candidate, especially as they had no involvement in preselecting.
At least a candidate who steps up to run in a council election is largely accepted to be independent of party politics.
It will then be up to them to work hard and achieve a reasonable primary vote to even be in the running for any kind of preferences.
The council voting system you crave for was nothing more than a covert system run by political parties to make sure they have the numbers in chamber.
