Comment on Shires: either revenue must go up or expectations, down by Paul Parker.

Agree with Bob Durnan: little logic exists in Commonwealth’s puppet string controlled NTG charade being played out.
These are NOT growth towns, NOT even communities.
They are zoo cages under Commonwealth control with Commonwealth appointed agents, the Central Land Council, acting as zoo keeper.
Little likely economic, legal or social basis exists to establish viable private businesses.
The reason is simple, these Zoo managers do NOT want any private developments.
Issuing leases provides accountable rights and responsibilities, so Commonwealth exempts themselves and their zoo keepers from issuing valid leases for houses and other developments.
The entire process to obtain and maintain leases is then corrupted.
Real victims are those forced to negotiate this charade, along with intended beneficiaries from these zoo management schemes the “Traditional Owners” as both residents and beneficiaries they remain denied their basic rights as fellow Australians to healthy communities.
“Traditional Owners” are temporary residents in what Commonwealth purports to be their homes, denied basic civil rights, such as the right to have families live with them or visit them.
The Central Land Council argues “Traditional Owners” have no right to live in a house, no right to have family live with them or visitors visit them.
Commonwealth defends its abusive legislation, and its managers, the Central Land Council, by refusing legal aid, so courts do not allow proceedings to continue towards judicial conclusions.
Clearly “Traditional Owners” are little more than shareholders in these Commonwealth created entities.
The Commonwealth allows these corporate entities to ignore basic legislation, responsibility and accountability as apply to others.
It does this because all this racist behavior remains a product of Commonwealth racism towards Australians.
Such racist behavior is NOT tolerated within the wider community towards fellow Australians.
Unchallenged the Commonwealth soon enough will knock on other doors.

Racism is about dividing people into separate groups, identifying them as different due ancestry, social behavior, innate capacities, and other, frequently using these to exclude or include them for “special treatment” whether this by advantage or disadvantage, also to rank then as inferior or superior.
The term “racial discrimination” means any distinction, exclusion, restriction, or preference based on race, colour, descent, or national or ethnic origin which has the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic, social, cultural or any other field of public life.
The Commonwealth continues to seriously infect the Northern Territory with its racism.


Jacinta Price spits dummy
Jacinta, your response to Erwin Chlanda of Alice Springs News is a great disappointment.
I have know Erwin Chlanda over 40 years, his work and commitment as a journalist is exceptional.
Apologise with grace, or shame yourself further.
IMHO Erwin Chlanda is well overdue for recognition by the NPC.


Horses starve, rotting carcasses near homes
Around Australia corporate or natural persons as land owners, managers or others are prosecuted, found negligent and penalties are applied.
Other than racial prejudice, why are these relevant corporate land-owners (Land Trusts), their relevant corporate property managers (Land Councils), their relevant executive management boards, or other relevant individuals not prosecuted?
Frequently applied is the legal principle that ignorance of the law is no excuse.


News cycle: It’s all over in a day
None may claim surprise, the Commonwealth long conducting “racial profiling” since it took over the Northern Territory from South Australia.

Commonwealth promotion of “racial profiling” and apartheid is easier to recognize in the NT.

Commonwealth cares little for equal legal rights and equal legal responsibility which our Constitution offers all Australians.

Puzzle is why so many content to ignore denial of their equal rights, thus opportunity, for a few silver coins…

As Pastor Martin Niemöller explains it:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.


Public may pay for government fake news: Opposition
The Chief Minister Michael Gunner and his government adopting principles of Dr Goebbels [Adolf Hitler’s propaganda minister – ED]:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Possible advertising change: “Welcome to the Northern Territory land of big lies.”
Every MLA is part of the NT Government, their is role to draw public attention to serious failings and disgraces.
