Comment on LETTER: Water debate 21 years ago – similar in substance, but not in tone by David Chewings.

@Councillor Steve Brown; I don’t care whether you carry on with your enviro-nazi tirade or not.
I do care that you continue to call yourself a common sense ENVIRONMENTALIST.
You are in a very public place and still have not answered my question. You are nothing less than the Chairman of the council’s Environmental Advisory Committee.
As you have said, things have changed since you were a boy and that goes for your dad and his influence within the party.
I said it is your destiny to have an impact on the physical environment of Alice Springs. To my way of thinking, to refer to oneself as an environmentalist one must have rock solid credibility where it counts.
You have not answered this question Chairman Councillor Steve Brown to my satisfacion.

LETTER: Water debate 21 years ago – similar in substance, but not in tone
Another fascinating contribution (Alice Springs News, 2/12/12 at 1:42 am) Alex Nelson, which contributes in a positive sense to the overall health in Alice Springs.

Since Councillor Steve Brown initiated the Nazi thing, really Murray Stewart, it was not me, I have enjoyed, mostly in private, comparing Councillor Steve Brown with Hitler. Both had or have exceptional brainpower.

My concern is with the obvious love that Councillor Steve Brown has with calling himself a common sense environmentalist. I have asked the Alice Springs News to publish on this before but no luck as yet.

Councillor Steve Brown is destined to have quite an impact on the physical environment of Alice Springs and the town deserves to know precisely what is behind Councillor Steve Brown’s claim of being a common-sense environmentalist.

[ED – We assume Mr Chewings is asking Cr Brown to say what he means when he calls himself a common sense environmentalist. We’re happy to publish Mr Chewing’s question.]

A star on British TV, ignored by Tourism NT
Well said Terri M of Arizona. The tourism commission knows how bad they are and that has been the subject of previous ASNO reports. They operate in the same myopic manner which came from another age and which was in denial of anything indigenous. The road ahead will not be easy and will require respect for all players and exceptional leadership.

Council wants more time to respond to water plan
This is a very grave issue for Central Australia. The situation at Mataranka involving Tina McFarlane and her family shows just how quickly things can turn. I would advise all Alice Springs people to watch this space and take note of those who know about water for example, Rod Cramer.

Water – who is advising whom on what?
This is a commendable report Erwin. David Chewings.
