Comment on CDU oval a public place no longer by Surprised!.

It’s a sad state of affairs when it comes to this.
We all talk about the need and benefits for kids to get out into the fresh air and exercise, but the element of bad bastards in our society forces the fences to go up and the gates to be locked.
When I was growing up, we loved to go to the park and fly a kite, kick the footy or play cricket. Apart from giving us exercise and having fun, it may have helped us to keep us out of trouble too.
Why is it, that the people who generally do the right thing in society are continually penalised by these bad bastards.
Why not punish the bad ones instead and remove their privileges?
Oh that’s right, you need pollies with guts.

CDU oval a public place no longer
Makes sense to me BUT we also need real penalties for those who vandalise the place too.
So we’re back to pollies with guts!

Now that the Rock can’t be climbed, visiting it will cost more
@ Scott: To compare the AFL or movies is an unfair comparison. These are commercial entities which are not prepaid by the taxpayers.
I have and always will take issue with having to pay to visit things I already pay for in my taxes.


Salt mines and tourism: bread and circuses
Lindsay and Alex, you both raise some very good points.
Whilst the company involved is clearly looking at the commercial aspects first, which makes perfect sense, in my opinion it is the government that needs to provide the missing transparency.
People no longer trust the government and that is the crux of the issue.
They (the government) are so intent on finding as many dollars as possible in order to pay for previous mistakes and coupled with their short sighted objectives, will ultimately result in the Federal government stepping in to the NT.


Big drops in grog crime, break-ins on way down: police
Statistics are wonderful things. I’m unsure why everyone is so sceptical about them.
There’s was a story about a certain car manufacturer in Australia that doubled their sales in a year !
They sold their second vehicle at the end of the first year.


No power for eight hours on hot, humid day
This fiasco has become quite concerning. This is the same government that financially penalises the IT provider, for not swapping a computer keyboard on time, yet has the audacity to allow an essential service to regularly fail, with no thought of compensation to the customer.
Unstable and erratic power supply is becoming a major and costly concern for all.
Interestingly in SA, they send a cheque by way of an attempt to recompense for loss of food and a form of apology.
The NTG are far too arrogant for that and it is very disappointing, but we continue to accept and support incompetence.
For how much longer?


Election 2020 salvos fired with Alice the first battleground
Perhaps we could all vote for the independents instead of the major parties, that would send a clear message.
