Comment on Alice water cap lifted ‘under pressure from political advisers’ by Janet Brown.

@Tanya. No one referred to Ann as a greenie. And your knowledge base or lack of it is clearly evident by your misinformation from sources that deliberately feed out misinformation to those gullible enough to believe it.
PAWA deliberately put out misinformation to avoid spending money in correct environmental best practice management. Ask the right questions to PAWA. Why do they continue to damage our environment by pumping our water from one hole without moving the pumping area to another giving that spot time to recover.
Why do they pump raw sewage out to the swamp without building a treatment plant that would see treated water poured out to the swamp. In the case of Darwin why do they let raw sewage out to the ocean to pollute the beaches. 30 years ago an idea here was to build a dam wall on Ilparpa road area and pump treated sewage water out to provide a water recreation area for residents.
That is not possible now as the land is too polluted and the cost to fix this issue to expensive. The money wasted to pump sewage to the dry aquifer as admitted by Desert Knowledge has not been successful not even a little bit. And only about 3% of waste from the ponds has been transferred. Real questions Tanya need truth. Anne was part of the false mistruths that were spread around to deceive Territorians by bureaucrats. So tell us all again that my husband has his own agenda and it is misguided. We actually research information unlike yourself, Arid Lands and Anne we are not so gullible.

Planning another plan
We need planning to be the role of the town council, not the NT government from Darwin.
How can we plan for our future development when there is no plan.
A town plan from the early 80s is lost.
Until we have a town plan on development any master plan is a joke. And to my knowledge the master plan does not include development areas for our growth.


Senator Scullion will not contest Federal election
Identity politics. It has to end. Politicians need to be representing the people. The Territory.
So far I have seen none of this from those putting up their hands.
They are only talking at election time. Voters are confused on their rights. As a voter we have the right to demand elected members who will work for a better Territory. Not a better Darwin over the rest of the Territory.
Our Federal ministers have the role to work for the entire country. As minsters elected by states and territories into a Federal seat they should be ensuring the best of Federal funding for their electorate. They are elected to represent Australians. Yet they are managed by government departments.
The departments have signed agreements to allow overseas businesses to avoid taxes. The departments who have allowed foreign governments to own Australian land. The tax office which negotiated agreements with overseas companies to avoid paying taxes that everyday Australians have to pay.

Make Oz Day a celebration of the future, not the past
Appeasement is not the answer. Appeasement is the catalyst for further division.
January 26 is the date chosen to celebrate our place in the world.
People from around the world choose our country to call home. Because we are amazing. Australians are proud of our home. The division based on race is not Australian. That is apartheid. We need to stop this vile hatred of Australia now.
Australia Day is not up for destruction by an angry and racist group.


Custodians decline meeting with council on gallery
I for one do not see this town and its progress as being at the whim of aboriginal people over the residents of Alice Springs. This type of division has its claws strongly embedded in segregation and apartheid mentality. The future of our town should be decided by all residents. I am so fed up with people using the race card to gain control. This should not be about who has the biggest stick, it should be about the majority seeking growth and prosperity for Alice Springs. Not personal agendas and petty jealousy.


GST billions yet we’re still the basket case
Jack, I do not have to walk a mile in anyone’s shoes.
It is clearly obvious that bandaid government mentality is all wrong.
What happened to outcomes and audits. Never happened. Throw more money at is the battle cry.
Regards of the fact that billions of dollars has only exacerbate the problem.
Money for nothing comes to mind.
Yet for governments to get that money some of us work hard to pay taxes, fees, levies and so forth. Our borrowings are through the roof. Time for outcome audited funding checks.
