Comment on Convincing win for Country Liberals: ALP likely to lose its only seat in The Centre by Paul Parker.

Clearly ignorance distorts thinking, when hear suggestions the newly elected NT government shall play a major role towards improving and providing housing in rural communities where voters shifted away from ALP.
Governments – Commonwealth and NT, long sought to construct more houses to satisfy the needs.
Failure to provide sufficient housing within these communities is caused by refusal of corporate agents and corporate private land owners to issue the required valid leases.
Anyone purchasing or constructing a house knows finance depends upon a valid lease or ownership.
Older houses constructed funded with expectations valid leases would be resolved and issued, rarely were they.
Valid leases regularly refused by these corporate agents for the land owning corporations.
Tenants in these communities, many of them shareholders in these land owning corporations, find themselves grossly denied their basic civil rights because they are denied valid leases by these land owning corporations and their agents.
Ultimately responsible is the Commonwealth due constant exemptions for these corporate property agents and corporate private landowners from being held accountable for refusal to maintain basic legal standards for housing, civil rights, and the gross damage to persons resulting from these denials.

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.

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.

Horses perish in abandoned Aboriginal outstation
People may be living on the land from time to time.
Did these residents obtain clearly worded leases from the relevant corporate Land Trust(s)?
If not, the relevant corporate Land Trust(s) should be held accountable.
Failing to hold relevant corporate owners accountable before the courts appears either to be neglect of duty or an act of racism.
