Comment on Black security guards hired to mask racism? by Fred the Philistine.

@ Laurie Butcher: You need to talk to the Yeperenye management if you need more seating. As I have said that it is the same for me. I fail to see why we have Sudanese people doing this work when we can have Australians.
If everyone behaved themselves we would not need them. And as for Alfred saying who is going to give him a job, he needs to go and see Adam Giles. It is very hard to employ people who can not read or write.

@ Hal Duell: The security company whoich operates in the Yeperenye Centre are supposed to patrol the whole centre, car parks and the perimeter. As Donald Trump would say if they are not doing their job get someone else.

Black security guards hired to mask racism?
@ Laurie Butcher: Some consolation, we now have a new and highly reputable security company in town.
@ Alfred: Why don’t you approach Warren Snowdon or Adam Giles or Nigel Scullion, who is the Minister for Indigenous Affairs, for a job?

Did Wilfred and Gisela Thor have to die?
I agree with Baffel. Tourists should be more responsible, however, we need to take more precautions as well.
Having emergency packs in hire vehicles (like a knapsack with water, tourch, flares, space blanket, hydralite tablets etc).
Also on hot days, the rangers should be checking the car parks every afternoon at 4.00pm. If cars are still there he should then go and look along the track.
There needs to be more signage. Like all the parks around Alice Springs, the facilities and the signage are very poor.

What a total waste of money this is going to be. NT Govt is already $875M deficit in the budget. By the way, who is going to run the so called cultural centre?

If it is going to be built on the Melankas site, what about the sacred trees, or aren’t they sacred anymore?

‘Extreme vetting’ and Pine Gap
The fairest thing is to send them back to their own country and let them come in through the proper channels like the migrants in the 1950s to 1960s had to do.

Four lanes through Gap: Does Alice need them?
You are all missing the point. This town is a service town for the Indigenous.
People only come here for the work. If this town did not have social security moneys, this town would be even smaller. There is nothing here to attract people except for work.
You also have people who take advantage of the Indigenous, e.g. taxi drivers. This town is controlled by very few people.
What annoys me is the police at the bottle shops. This should be funded by the bottle shops themselves. Why should the tax payers pay for it?
Take the social moneys and the government grants out of this town and see what you’ve got.
A four lane highway through The Gap should have been built in the beginning.
Things here have been done so slovenly, but have made alot of people rich. There is no town planning in this town.
Maybe we need to get someone like Donald Trump to kick some arses and sack a few councillors and employ some who will get the job done.
