Excellent comments from all contributors thus far. Privatising the profits …

Comment on Police presence cuts turnover of pub by 40% by Phil Walcott.

Excellent comments from all contributors thus far. Privatising the profits (not declaring turnover either) and socialising the problem has long been the “sneaky” issue. Excessive consumption of alcohol has become “normalised” for many around the NT for several decades. It’s NOT “normal”.

Responsible consumption, keeping enough money to spend on food, shelter and kids needs to take priority again. All people (where able) over 18 to be employed or/and in education so they are not spending their time in alcohol-driven activities leading to misery, pain and social disengagement. Promoting dependency on alcohol and welfare??? – now THAT’S soul destroying for humanity and culture.

@ Braedon: Sandra indicated last year (or before) that she will not be re-contesting Katherine in the 2020 Legislative Assembly elections.

“We Deserve Better.” Sound familiar?

Jacinta Price: 4 year commitment lasted 18 months
Prediction: If Jacinta is not successful in winning Lingiari in four weeks and Josh Burgoyne doesn’t win the second Senate seat (which won’t happen because the Senate roles are ‘fixed’ at one CLP: one NTALP), they’ll both contest the August 2020 NT Legislative Assembly in Braitling (Jacinta) and Araluen (Josh).

First Aboriginal doctor: Gordon Briscoe AO, BA (Hist), MA, PhD
A terrific read … great acknowledgement of a man who looks like having significantly contributed to many generations of Aboriginal people, both locally and around the country.
Always good to learn of such accomplishments from those of us who had a difficult beginning.
Happily shared on some social media. Thanks for being, Gordon.

Pretty obvious this is a blatant political move by the Feds. They back their own team in SA to the detriment of the opposition team in the NT.
