Comment on NATS benefit to economy open to question by Brent.

Center NATS brings a fortune into town. Businesses all over town benefit. From hotels to petrol stations and souvenir shops. Even tourism ventures get a boost.
How much did that stupid light show cost? Because not a single extra visitor came for it. It should be noted that Center NATS costs less than a third of what the CAFL football finals cost, and the only industry that gets more work on the back of the finals is the court docket.

Proposal to make Finke track an official recreation area
When has the government getting involved in an area that doesn’t need improvement ever actually worked? If Parks get involved, they will do an audit and get the track paved for safety.

Cart before the horse
We can thank our esteemed Federal Member for the lack of funding.
The Northern Australia Counil which he chairs negotiated with the Federal Government to match dollar for dollar what the state or territory puts in.
He complained in question time shortly after that about the deal that he did, without once mentioning that his mate Gunner needed to pony up the other half.
He basically tried to score points by highlighting how abysmal his own performance is. Luckily he will be out of the job in May.

Scott McConnell now to vote as an Independent
Scott is the only decent guy in the Labor party and I believe his heart is in the right place, however I won’t believe a word he says until I see him vote against Labor in Parliament.
All these promises will mean nothing if he keeps voting with the 5th floor machine.

No youth detention facilities in residential areas: MLAs
I bet the residents of Kilgariff who built their homes in a nice safe area would appreciate a jail next door. The extra traffic and families hanging around will not be a bother at all.
Given how much the NT Government hates Alice Springs, I expect it to go ahead. It will get priority project status if the residents object too loudly, too.

Jacinta Price reneges on council undertaking
Hypobole aside, there is no need or intention (or even requirement) for her to resign. She can do both. You will find the Mayor of Sydney is also their state member. You will also find the Federal member for Lowe is on his local council, so are two Labor senators and one Greens senator.
So thanks for the misinformation.
