Comment on Price wants council to do better than basics by Evelyne Roullet.

@ Fred the Philistine: Have you put your hand up for Saturday elections? It does not mean that you have to love the seven candidates, but we should show respect to them for offering to work for the town.
As for the rates in Alice Springs, they are not much different than in other parts of Australia. I am certain that the council aims to keep the increase in rates to a minimum in order to lessen any impact on ratepayers, but at the same time generate enough income to provide adequate levels of service that the people of the town expect.

Quote: “Jacinta, regarding your successful business, what assistance have you received on the basis of being Indigenous.”
All those born in Australia are “indigenous Australians”.
Oxford Dictionary: Originating or occurring naturally in a particular place; native.
Origin of the word: Mid 17th century from Latin indigena “a native”.

@ Fred the Philistine: If, if, if. If my auntie had balls, I would call her uncle.
Right now, what stands between you and great visions is your philosophy of life, your attitude and your inability to take action.

@ Steve: Could we ask the candidates to tell us if they intend to put their candidature for the next Northern Territory general election scheduled for 27 August 2016?

New COVID initiative rehashes old projects
I have two questions:
• How much this committee will cost us, as I do not think that Dale will not get an extra allowance for her new portfolio and that the committee members do it pro bono.
• Will the government listen to the decisions and findings or ignore the results like for the guidance from the National Reference Group for the art gallery?

Country Liberal Party: custodians ignored on gallery
@ Surprised: A moot point can be either an issue open for debate, or a matter of no practical value or importance because it’s hypothetical. Therefore it is not a mute point when you said: “He who pays, makes the rules. Like it or lump it.” Your comment is opened to debate
• Who is “he”? In my opinion “he” is the people of this country paying taxes and a lot of Aborigines pay taxes.
• This article is about “the custodians being ignored”.
• It is their art their culture and yet all the discussions and debates are based on the “invaders” making money from something of which they have no knowledge and for which they have no respect.
Let them decided what they want.


CLP would build gallery at Desert Park, not Anzac precinct
Alex the whole performance of Gunner’s government is a major political scandal.
The governor general should had sacked him longtime ago (Whitlam was dismissed for less than that).
Could some one from the party explain in details here for all to see what Gunner has achieved in his time on power? It is the right of the public and the voters.


Gunner again cites COVID for his failing to answer questions
All politicians during interviews, especially before elections, should do it hooked up to a lie detector (polygraph).
They are not 100% accurate but better than nothing.
