Comment on Make September 8 Australia Day, anthem in Pitjantjatjara by Rosalie Schultz.

I agree with many of Ted’s ideas but would like to provide information on Australian languages:
Pitjantjatjara may not be the most widely known Australian Indigenous language. According to the 2016 census, Pitjantjatjara is fourth after Kriol, Yumplatok, and Djambarrpuyngu.

Major Business Group discloses members, draws fire
We need to recognise that prisons are places of intense harm and suffering. Rather than increasing the size of the prisoner population, we should instead regret the need for prisons and develop strategies to reduce the number of people incarcerated, and particularly those who are re-incarcerated through failure of the justice system to rehabilitate.
If the community leaders in the Major Business Group are benefiting from the prison, they have little incentive to use their leadership to work towards preventing crime through building fair and strong communities.
I support Scott McConnell’s opposition to another prison, of any form.

Gas-first government dodging urgent need to act on climate
As the leader of a government that was elected with a promise to introduce a moratorium on fracking, Gunner doesn’t look very insightful.

Torrent of toxic Facebook posts after Mall melee
I’m as concerned about these obscene and racist posts as I am about the kids they describe. Anti-social behaviour on both sides is disturbing.

Fracking inquiry left me thankful, fearful, focused
Good news is that if the Inquiry recommends that fracking can be regulated, there’s sure to be another moratorium and Inquiry the next year – just like last time in NT and in WA.
If the Inquiry recommends a ban we’ll see energy transition – just like in SA and Victoria.
My advice to the panel and the government is to save energy, and recommend / implement a ban on fracking with this Inquiry.

‘Dangerous, alarming’ property tax strongly opposed by council
$300 per year sounds quite an inconsequential addition to a $550 000 house price. It’s only 60 cups of coffee.
Doesn’t sound “dangerous” “alarming” or an “out and out money grab” with a “dire effect on the property market”.
