Comment on Cops called in on overseas trip by Chandler: details by Patsy Hickey.

This government rightly cuts back funding when it considers the funding is not giving us OUTCOMES.
Mr Nairn was asked by this newspaper for outcomes.
His response gave none. Cut back his funding!
And cut back the Minister’s funding. He seems unable to give us itinerary – let alone some OUTCOMES.

Cart before the horse on gas pipeline?
Dear Minister Moss,
Reported in the Alice Springs News Online recently re the gas pipe line project.
The EPA says: “The proponent [Jemena] did not provide the necessary information to allow the NT EPA to adequately assess the potential impacts and risks to water resources and road safety as an issue associated with increased traffic movement from construction vehicles on the Barkly Highway, and other roads.”
Does this not indicate to yourselves what little regard this firm has for our resources?
If not then you confirm my growing disrespect for yourself and your party.
I have struggled long with your supposed moratorium on fracking because of your backing for this pipe line.
It seems to me you cannot have one without the other so your party’s supposed consultation is nothing more than a pretence.
I was long a CLP supporter but swung due to their bad performance. Sadly your party is no better.
