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.

Delay in Rolfe prosecution: virus, huge brief to blame
Due to COVID-19 the courts unable operate normally. For judicial matters to continue video-links provide a partial solution.
With COVID-19 social changes are happening faster than usual, many of these changes will continue long after COVID-19 is forgotten.
There are reasonable judicial concerns towards live-streaming court process to wider public.
IMHO is NOT acceptable when identified journalists, all of whom are accountable to the courts, are NOT able to receive secure live screen viewing of video-link sessions.
Justice does require accurate reporting to inform the public.

The insidious impact of racism is clearly visible when racial tags used in public discussions.
Australian Governments, Parliamentarians, our media at all levels regularly promote racism.
As do those who identify fellow Australians, or call for special treatment, using racial tags.

Hospitals may need restrict face to face visits to reduce cross-infections.
Those with mobiles already can use video-links.
Perhaps hospital can provide a small video-conference room for each ward so available at arranged times for staff and/or patients to be able to video-conference.
This is suggested to aged care services facing restriction on visits to residents.


Coronavirus strategies in the bush still a work in progress
For many activists their primary goal is to maintain separation and dependencies of our families in rural and remote communities, delaying learning skills we all need to improve our own lives in our wider, modern, and far more comfortable, world.
The corporate Land Owner Trust(s) exclude themselves from being held responsible and accountable for living conditions they as the corporate land owners are responsible for.
Communities are obtaining housing, radio, and TV.
Communities need to use internet to educate themselves.
Reducing public group close contact, better general cleaning, provision and regular use of soap are essential.
We do not need treat everyone like idiots.
Those identified as infected need be isolated within caring environments.
COVID-19 aka Coronavirus is spreading, most who get it will have it mild.
Our goal is to reduce number of deaths while it spreads.
Our most at risk are a small section of our population.
We need educate those at risk, and assist them.
For those with serious risk, required is lesser contact with others.
We need reduce deaths whilst we build up an immunity.
Social distancing does not requiring being locked away, being “managed” to deny you your right for family, relations, others to visit you when you want.
Those who fail their own basic self-management are those most likely to be forcibly managed.
