Comment on Will NT fill nature tourism void when reef dies? by Fred the Philistine.

it’s not global warming which is killing our reef. Humans are. Just look at the foods we eat which are all chemically tainted, e.g. fruit, chicken, vegetables etc.
All these chemicals which are used to grow cotton in Queensland, or fruits, which require a lot of chemicals, especially cotton, where do you think the contaminated water ends Up?
In relation to whether or not the NT is going to fill the void, I doubt.
Alice Springs will need to clean its act. Last weekend in the Herald Sun, Alice Springs was named as the most dangerous place to live.
It was described as the murder capital of Australia. Yes it has got some very beautiful places, but these too need a tidy up. I do believe that the Darwin and coastal area will see an increase in tourism.

Ms Lambley was quite correct in what she said, that the Budget was impressive and mature.
We do not need any more funds spent on Alice Springs. Let’s stop being ostriches, pull our heads out of the sand and use what we have got.
We have everything.
We need to stop the spending, not only here in Alice but in the whole NT and start reining our debt in. The NT has had it too good for to long.
The Indigenous need to stop winghing and start working together with white man. Do the Indigenous need to work for the dole, if not why not!

Court placing itself above the community?
The Indigenous do not have to be tried by white man’s law, they can be tried by their own people, but choose ours, as apparently the sentence is less severe.
On the other hand, they better start learning not to break white man’s laws.
