Comment on Advocate: Getting it wrong on their big day by Surprised!.

Well I’ve been here for 22 years. I been involved with newspapers for quite a few years before I got here. Never particularly liked the papers much due to their political bias.
Never was really keen either even on Alice Springs News at first, (my ignorance) but the more I watched what was happening around the place and read the paper, I realised that we are very privileged to have it.
It is one of the only newspapers around the world that is NOT politically driven or coerced by politics.
They report FACTUAL information only, so that we the readers can make informed opinions.
We are lucky to have a publication that genuinely cares about its readers and not paper sales. Suggest we all support this publication and give the respect it has earned and deserves.
Keep up the great work Erwin.

I’m with Janet Brown on this. She puts it succinctly and eloquently.

Police seek information after attacks on two women
When I go walking my dog at night, I carry a knife for protection.
It’s about risk assessment. The risk of being attacked or menaced is a lot higher than being caught by the police, so it makes sense.
In the unlikely event I get caught by the police, I’ll cry that I had a bad childhood or use the race card and the court system will let me go with a smack on the wrist.
To do otherwise would be seen as racially prejudicial.

Robbed man gets empty wallet back
Wow, those girls must be so fu**ing tough. To be able to rob a 71 year old. Perhaps we could nominate them for some kind of award.
How about the Sewer Rat Award? We could get one of the piss weak pollies to be MC.

Suddenly everyone is talking about 1Territory
Why is it that the pollies who did this are not held to account?
Surely in the legal system there is an avenue as there would be for former company directors?
I wish 1Territory the best of luck and they will get my vote.

Wakefield insists on Anzac Oval, ignores majority
Steve Brown: You raise some excellent points Steve, however you seem to be overlooking one very important fact.
If the government wanted to consult the masses, they should have taken the opinions more seriously.
The fact that they didn’t, is disrespectful to the taxpayer. So, was it just lip service?
I think you’ll find that this may be what has pissed people off.
