Comment on Dylan Voller’s mistreatment started in Alice Springs by Another Observer.

@ Dalton Dupuy: You say that this happened on the current Government’s watch and Giles must resign. However, it is all over social media at the moment: The ABC once again, changing the news to suit a political agenda, had removed the time stamp – the date on the original video 12/09/2010.
Whilst I don’t agree with or condone the treatment of anyone in this fashion, what really makes me sick to my stomach are the “activists” and political parties who are using this to beat the CLP up.
The CLP deserve heaps of criticism, and in my humble view, GILES should be booted out the door – but my guess is that we will see The Greens use this as a platform to signal their moral virtue.

Dylan Voller’s mistreatment started in Alice Springs
@ Fred: With respect: “… here is no reason why business people like Steve Brown can’t take on some of these people as apprentices and show them life skills …”
Why is it private enterprises’ place to socialise and give life skills to people?
How about turning your focus on the continued failure of the school system and families who are turning out these people?

Wakefield ready for fight: affirms intention to acquire oval
Representative Government seems to have been left by the wayside.
#HowTheyRuleYa aren’t just words in a song anymore, it might be time for a reminder by doing away with the UniParty.
Wakefield ignoring the community is one thing, but I guess it isn’t as bad as Giles selling the NT out to the Chinese via the port of Darwin arrangements!

I’d be a bit more worried about cadmium from broken panels leaching into the ground – doesn’t this sit over part of the great artesian basin?

Bottle shop cops need to be brought into line: local chain
Anecdotal I know, but on two recent occasions, I’ve sat outside one of the AC owned bottle shops and was quite shocked to realise that the only commonality of those who were pulled up and questioned by the bottlo monitor, was the colour of their skin.
From a group of young women, to tradies on the way home from work, to older people and middle aged women – the only constant was their skin colour. Not good enough, NT Government.


‘Big Council’ needed in times of trouble
There is a very good reason why the majority of voters, in the majority of states voted against the bill.
Perhaps it is time for the council to focus on roads, rubbish and parks and leave the rest of it to the other two levels of government that the poor taxpayer is groaning under.
At what point is too much government enough?


Rates may rise 3.5% but no civic centre swap in draft budget
Give us a bloody break – the council can’t even be bothered engaging local suppliers, but expect us to stump up year after year.
The poor taxpayer is funding how many levels of government? And for what?
