Comment on Snowdon keeps Lingiari despite a drop in his vote by Maths.

It seems to me that what the community wants is not a monopoly on power, not two parties arguing for the sake if argument and constant denigration of minor parties and independents.
The people want more voices in Parliament. They want open and respectful dialogue and they want compromise.
They want negotiated policies that reflect the wishes of a broad majority, not the grandstanding, posturing and power tripping of the Labor and Liberals who are rarely if ever elected with a majority of first preference votes.

It would be interesting to know how many people actually voted for Wazza. I mean they actually want him. Compared to how many voted against the Liberals. I mean like anyone except the CLP.

I would have used gutless as my pseudonym, Evelyne, but I thought that was more appropriate for Wazza.

How disappointing. While I’m happy it’s not a CLP stooge elected, the prospect of this do nothing bloke continuing as our rep is depressing.
His mail out shows just how pathetic he is, just sprouting the crap from Canberra and nothing really relevant for our Territory.
Where’s Wazza has been in Canberra too long. He is not a Territorian, just a useless political hack who has completely lost touch with reality.

Maybe equity is a better word to use than equality. Some people have different needs.
If you are deaf and in court it is fair and just that you get to have an interpreter to sign for you so you know what’s going on.
Is that equality? I mean the deaf person is getting special treatment.


Salt mine: Alice needs to grasp a major opportunity
It makes good economic sense to fully use existing infrastructure.
The trainline seems a good way to shift the workers down there – cheaper, safer and less pollution etc.
Why not use what we have already? It could also be a great service for the Titjikala community.
If we must have a mine there then there should also be plans put in place for the maximum opportunities for the Titjikala mob.


Grandson and grandmother come before the Royal Commission
“Where are the parents?”, always an interesting question when you put it in an historical context.
How many of our good old pioneering families recognise their not completely white offspring. You know the children of those women and young girls used by these fellas. Who owns the stations and businesses started by these guys on country stolen from the children’s Aboriginal family. And often built with cheap or slave labour. The white kids or their black brothers and sisters?
Our present situation is built on our past history and as much as we want to hide it, it’s still there and it’s not pretty. With all the talk about domestic violence today we need to remember that this place was settled by white people with a huge amount of violence. The effects of which are still impacting today. That violence and mistreatment was accepted as the norm and ok to a great extent, and I think that many in the community still think it’s ok.
