Comment on Survey: How much do you like Adam Giles? by Di.

@ Hal Duell: I agree wholeheartedly Hal. As a voter in Braitling I can assure you that we haven’t seen hide nor hair of our “local” member since the CLP was elected to office.
Queries or complaints to the local member get handed off to the public service (last time I checked I didn’t vote for the damn public service!)
The old boys club of the CLP has led me to allow my membership to lapse and to seriously consider the ALP – which will be the first time since the 1983 Federal election that such a move is being considered.
I cannot believe that the CLP has created such a mess here in Alice, and look forward to holding them to account!

Rates may rise 3.5% but no civic centre swap in draft budget
Give us a bloody break – the council can’t even be bothered engaging local suppliers, but expect us to stump up year after year.
The poor taxpayer is funding how many levels of government? And for what?


Federal Budget ‘another big GST blow to the NT’
WHY should constituents in other States and Territories be forced to go without because our politicians can’t operate responsibly?
If the Treasurer would like to send me a draft of the NT Budget, and a red pen, I’ll fix the problem quick smart!


Miners are spreading myths, says environmentalist
“… yet now they are trying to hold the economy to ransom with tired big business talking points …”
Hold the economy to ransom? Would that be like “charities” masquerading as business and pushing full tax paying entities out of the market?
Take the wood out of your own eye, fella!


Parliamentary committee endorses a First Nations Voice
Obviously Neville Bonner, Ken Wyatt, Linda Burney, Nova Peris and Malarndirri McCarthy, the chap with the hat aren’t / weren’t First Nations Voices – who’d a thunk it? [Who would have thought of that …]


Business index shows NT to be least confident
We are taxed at every damned level that is imaginable – sustainability the Left cries, there is nothing sustainable about the charges that they are inflicting upon the populace, regardless of what level you are operating at.
But think about the business owners – not those supported businesses or the charities that are awarded work, not because they are the best, the cheapest, the most innovative, no, it’s because of the colour of the owner’s or the employee’s skin.
What the NT, local and Commonwealth governments have managed to introduce is the most racist damning policies that have ever been conceived.
They are stealing business profits via taxation, and using those funds to put those same firms out of business by picking winners and losers in the award of works and contracts.
Should Indigenous Australian’s be encouraged into business? Absolutely, but when they are subsidised by the taxpayer and given “not for profit” status that relieves them of the burden of taxation that every ordinary business faces, then all the government is doing is creating poverty for future generations from all races.
It is simply shameful.
