Comment on Royal Commission’s broad inquiry: ‘the way kids live their lives’ by Phil Walcott.

Thanks for reporting on this, Kieran.

It’s so very clear that ‘the system’ is a broken model. The people within it are generally wonderful but they too are ‘stuck’ in the dysfunction of a very badly organised bureaucratic structure. It is highly overloaded with a variety of ‘managers’ who appear to do little more than ‘manage’ their power and salary status.

It’s time to ‘flatten’ the silo and allow the people who actually aim to deliver programs for the care of children to have a greater input into how those services are delivered in a comprehensive and compassionate manner.

Jacinta Price: 4 year commitment lasted 18 months
Prediction: If Jacinta is not successful in winning Lingiari in four weeks and Josh Burgoyne doesn’t win the second Senate seat (which won’t happen because the Senate roles are ‘fixed’ at one CLP: one NTALP), they’ll both contest the August 2020 NT Legislative Assembly in Braitling (Jacinta) and Araluen (Josh).

First Aboriginal doctor: Gordon Briscoe AO, BA (Hist), MA, PhD
A terrific read … great acknowledgement of a man who looks like having significantly contributed to many generations of Aboriginal people, both locally and around the country.
Always good to learn of such accomplishments from those of us who had a difficult beginning.
Happily shared on some social media. Thanks for being, Gordon.

Pretty obvious this is a blatant political move by the Feds. They back their own team in SA to the detriment of the opposition team in the NT.
