Comment on Ayers Rock Resort loan not from the public purse by Fred the Philstine.

Will this loan eve be repaid, I don’t think so.
I don’t think this was a very well thought out plan. $65m on top of the $350m total $415m, and that is without the interest payment.
This does not make good economic sense. $65m to help create more jobs. How may more jobs are we looking at?
One wonders how long it will be before this goes bankrupt.
Why can’t the Anglo Saxon receive the same interest rates? Discrimination, I cry.

As a taxpayer I would like some of my money back, as this is just going down a black endless hole.

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.

Oops, forgot to mention about the greedy landlords. Maybe they can pull their heads in with the rents.
