Comment on I cannot recall, Giles tells the Royal Commission by Phil Walcott.

Such a Richard Nixon response.
Arrogant and contemptuous behaviour that seriously adds to the already poor legacy of the former NT government under his “leadership”.
No effort at reflection or even trying to remember the incidents in question. No preparation, no submissions, no credibility.
Similar behaviour to that displayed by him in estimates hearings over travel costs undertaken by former ministers and their minders.
Long, drawn out, monotonous responses to questions posed in an attempt to not seriously answer them.
Only airfares were quoted (not associated costs like accommodation, meals, travel allowances or on-ground transport) in an attempt to make the costs cheaper than they actually were. Selective memory serves us all.
At least John Elferink was able to recall.

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.
