Comment on Stuart statue competes against a light pole by Janet Brown.

@ Edan. You really did not write Stuart did not behave in a manner set in correct protocol.
You really are lost in your very own world. If I remember correctly women did not have the right to vote. Now how does your protocol comment make any sense.
Times change, lessons are learnt and the world moves on.
But wait there is more. Edan is about to give us a lesson on the mistakes of our past.
No matter that we have evolved. And everyone makes mistakes, even today.

Stuart statue competes against a light pole
I have no problem with the liberal views. I may not agree with them all but I understand them. On the other hand the Labor socialist views where in meetings everyone is referred to as comrade I strongly oppose.
If you are green your voice is amongst the radical extremist. Just goes with the turf.


Stuart statue competes against a light pole
@ Edan Baxter: Historians have been on the ABC radio stating clearly that the accusations that were raised in the flyer circulating and the statements made to council Monday night were formulated on mistruth and intentionally designed to denigrate a pioneer of this area.
So you are confirming that persons voicing their opposition to varying public opinion you are willing to formulate lies as truth and you hold no conscience to doing this to win your point. Shame on you.
But this episode is one of many that has occurred the animal liberation movement that say animals are skinned alived for their fur. Lies that tail docking and other procedures are cruel on lambs. Lies. Docking tails on dogs is cruel. Lies.
And then situations such as this. All based on lies to achieve your desired outcome. What is wrong with you people is the truth just to hard to accept.


Stuart statue competes against a light pole
My oh my, the radical few are handing out and delivering flyers full of lies about John Stuart. I believe one of them is also responsible for the paint thrown at the statue. You are all vandals and liars. One of the group was on the ABC this morning and would not give up the name of the person who prepared the flyers. The woman who lead the few to council and spoke as the leader should be publicly humiliated for her lies. Maybe stocks by the statue. Now there is an idea.

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.
Check out the person wanting your vote.


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.
