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.

Government electricity firm in trouble as solar booms
I would be interesting to know the number of houses and buildings with solar power systems which
(a) did NOT keep their electricity on,
(b) kept their electricity on.
Does any know the numbers?


Labor, CLP discuss preference swaps: Scott McConnell
Are Australian political parties ignoring their members, even worse their electorates?
Recent Commonwealth election result reflects over-concentration on left or right issues whilst ignoring middle voters.
NT elections show wider variations, perhaps with less attention to middle of the road voters.
Politicians failing to demonstrate real recognition and attention to middle voter concerns are ignoring most voters.


Politicking or community: What to do about youth crime?
Re: Ted Egan Posted October 4, 2019 at 11:24 am
I respect Ted Egan, however he is wrong, it is apartheid.
Use of racist labels does not explain problems with youths, it just promotes racism.
Ongoing promotion of racism de-sensitises those surrounded by it.
Commonwealth imposition of apartheid upon Australians is racism.
Claims of short term gains from racist and apartheid policies ignores losses from maintaining those policies.
Fail-to-thrive remain a foreseeable legacy from Australian Commonwealth’s ongoing racist and apartheid policies.
Australians voted to eliminate apartheid, not maintain and promote it.
Resolution of apartheid’s disadvantages requires apartheid and racism to end, not continue.


Boy from The Centre to address UN Human Rights Council
Australia’s governments originally contributed, promoted, and supported the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Article 2
Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.
All Australians need their governments to constantly demonstrate their commitments to the clear meanings and purposes set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.


Nuke power way to zero emissions, or a solar shortcut?
Expect little public difference if we had 100% of the world’s nuclear materials.
Many regard the main issue to consider with nuclear energy is nuclear waste, including nuclear side-products.
Most IMHO do not accept these as safe, nor reliable, nor affordable.
Until clearer explanations, more details, greater education, concerning nuclear wastes and side-products are available, particularly these with long-term-lives, expect little change in public sentiment.
Public concern grows with political decision-makers dumbing down the public, exhibiting little interest in public involvement or consideration.
