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.

Seeking equality as Indigenous distrust of government peaks
The cited “limitation of democracy” and “muffled voices” was ended when Neville Bonner was appointed To the Senate in 1971.
Consider his election in his own right by popular vote in 1972, 1974, 1975 and 1980.
Since Neville Bonner broke the ice, others have been elected.
Australians support equality of legal rights and legal responsibilities as Australians.
Australian voters’ silence is towards in-equality.
The Uluru Statement promotes in-equality, not equality.


Yuendumu murder charge update
Re: Psuedo Guru Posted November 15, 2019 at 8:15 am “Anarchy rules in Alice Springs.”
I doubt anarchy rules in Alice Springs.
These problems are not Alice Springs problems, they are Australian problems.
The problems relate to “racial tag” support from racists.
We need to end the Commonwealth’s ongoing promoting, enforcing, defending its wedging of Australians using “racial tags” to diminish our rights as Australians.
The Commonwealth needs to act for Australians in need of basic services, not racial wedging.
While “racial tag” wedging continues then yes, the racists are winning.


Government fails bush on health, police: McConnell
Government(s) fail on more than health, with reduced services not just an NT problem.
Related issues effect most Australian regional and rural communities.
Regional and rural Australians suspect ongoing reductions of services to their communities result from purported government(s) efficiency “money saving” policies.
Are all communities entitled to same levels of service?
Do all understand relationships between population levels and services available?
Are services allocated using population per square kilometre?
Are services provided using distance from major service township ?
Do aircraft transfers provide services cheaper, more effectively, than local services?

Who pays the bills ?


‘Cop will be labelled for the rest of his life as a blackfeller killer’
I am puzzled by comments from the Central Land Council (CLC) CEO Joe Martin-Jard and CLC deputy chair Barbara Shaw.
Are they each claiming NT Coroner hearings are not independent, fully transparent and thorough?

Re: Chris Slater, posted November 10, 2019 at 8:23pm:
“The stark reality is the risk is always there and officers are forced to make a split-second decision about how to respond, to protect themselves and others.”
I agree.
In life we all may at times be forced to make such split-second decisions.
If accurate the deceased resisted arrest, using a knife, the entire NT community needs address why so many fail to understand how making such decisions increases danger to themselves and others.
Now the investigations, particularly the inquest, which is a court hearing, need time to collect all available, at times conflicting evidence, time to consider then determine relevant facts, which will be released in the Coroner’s findings.
Coroner hearings and their findings are open to the public.
