Comment on Incompetent Labor Government deserves $2b cut: 1Territory by Braedon Earley.

Opening a Dan Murphy’s isn’t going to increase alcohol consumption, it is going to take revenue from existing takeaway outlets – that’s the real argument.
The Federal Government is sending a message and for those that don’t listen you will have your funding reduced, period.

@ Harold: This government has plenty of time to research and understand the role of the Commonwealth Grants Commission and the formulae by which they distribute the GST funds. Here it is for your information, please read it then re read what we have issued as a press release.
An independent statutory authority that operates under the Commonwealth Grants Commission Act 1973. The Commission recommends to the Australian Government how general revenue assistance should be allocated between the States and Territories. The Commission’s recommendations are based on the principle of horizontal fiscal equalisation, which is defined as:
A distribution of Goods and Services Tax revenue to State and Territory Governments such that, after allowing for material factors affecting revenues and expenditures, each would have the fiscal capacity to provide services and their associated infrastructure at the same standard, if each made the same effort to raise revenue from its own sources, operated at the same level of efficiency and maintained the average per capita net financial worth.

@ Russell Guy: Sorry, mate, didn’t realise communities didn’t include townships.
The Dan Murphy’s no go is about political donations and mates of mates, your comments are noted, the BDR/TBL or retail floor size doesn’t stop the increase / decrease consumption of alcohol or problem drunks it just moves the problem out of your eyesight.
Last time I checked my B.App.Sc (Property Economics) was still on the wall. Cheers.

‘Gunner the Betrayer’
I agree with Bruce. I can also confirm that Sandra Nelson gave me an undertaking (as did the lying Labor Bastards that we did a preference deal with) that she was against fracking and would not let it get up in the Territory, hence she got my preferences in Katherine, which she won on.
As the next Territory election draws close watch the FAILED cowards run for the hills and not contest their seats. Watch as the spending starts to go through the roof in regional NT, particularly around Aboriginal communities, but more importantly watch the lies that fly from both parties’ mouths.
But remember this, the Territory has never been in such dire economic straits whist at the cusp of destroying our greatest asset and draw card – our environment. Thanks to both the CLP and the ALP.


NT at the bottom of the barrel
What is sad, Gary, is the part you and the CLP played during the last term of Government.
Put your hand up and take some responsibility for the current status quo.


Town Council: protect Alice water from fracking
Don’t Frack the Northern Territory.
Short sighted politicians, and their advisers are destroying the Northern Territory. Let’s leave a positive footprint and environment for generations to come.
As for Price, surely some disciplinary action is warranted.


Price family were sole complainants against Cocking & Satour 
Jacinta do the right thing, resign from the Federal election race, you have proven your skill set beyond reasonable doubt.


Satour & Price seeking legal advice in Code of Conduct saga
Can you just imagine Price in Federal politics?
If her behaviour in the Alice Springs Council is an example of what she does when she gets a bit of power? Her behaviour and targeting of fellow councillors is un-Territorian.
