Comment on LETTER: Macklin’s government berates NT over liquor policies, but funded the purchase of three booze shops, says Tollner by Ian Sharp.

Bloody Bob Durnan! Tripping Janet up just as she was hitting her stride. Bugger the facts, Bob, Janet was set to take off. Huge windfall for LAAC owning all those IGA’s across the country! If only. Some food for thought for Dave Tollner there too, Bob, but I don’t think his diet includes reasoned argument or inconvenient facts.

Janet originally said: “This same group owns nearly all IGA stores Australia wide. And all funded it seems by Australian government funds” (this same group being the LAAC).

And now she says “Bob you need to do more reading and investigation. What I said is very true. But typical of the true laborites. Just blindly follow and believe what you are told.”

The IGA website claims that most of their stores Australia-wide are owned by independent operators. What does Janet know that we don’t? Please explain.

Assume Janet’s last post is in response to “seduxen” who is criticised for using far fetched and misleading figures! Pot calling kettle black in light of her earlier post re ownership of IGA supermarkets across Australia? Propaganda indeed.

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.
