Sorry Michael Liddle, I was trying be ironic after reading Anonymous Mark’s post. But I did see a rainbow bee-eater!

Convincing win for Country Liberals: ALP likely to lose its only seat in The Centre
Yes, Anonymous Mark, the sky is blue again, rainbow bee-eaters have appeared, people are perambulating on the streets again, walking their dogs, smiling at passers-by, greeting neighbours, security fences are coming down. There is a new atmosphere in the town.

Crikey, the only positive thing to say about Steve Brown’s latest comment is that he put his name to it. Let us generously assume he is on a high over the CLP victory and will calm down over time. Let us also hope Terry Mills will take him at face value, what you see is what you get. The new Government deserves a good go, they face the eternal problem of scarcity of resources, over-promising, unreal expectations in the electorate, the last thing they need is Steve Brown in full flight. Will be fun to watch though.

The electorate has spoken, congratulations to Terry Mills, not so long ago he was just one of four CLP members in NT Parliament. Good thing about this election is that it WASN’T decided in the northern suburbs of Darwin. Big implications for NT politics and allocation of government spending.
Will be interesting to watch the new government in action. Some hand grenades about for Terry to think about. Final word: Like John Elferink’s comment on ABC TV last night. This is how to change a government, not like they are attempting it in Syria. We should celebrate the fact that we can change governments lawfully and peacefully, without any fears of election rigging, bribery or violence.

A woman I knew back in the 1980s or 90s was required to drive a Landcruiser out bush alone without the knowledge or capability to change a wheel if she had a flat. Luckily it never happened.


Value of NT mineral production highest ever
In 2017-18 our mineral resource exports, including base metals, earned Australia more than $220bn (total exports exceeded $400bn for the first time).
Hard to judge (because NT figure quoted here doesn’t include oil and gas, and not all Australian production is exported) but it still seems the NT’s production value of $5bn is not much.
On the upside that indicates there is a huge potential for future exploration and development.
