Comment on Central Australian Aboriginal Legal Aid defunded by John.

Chairperson Terry Tilmouth says: “It again shows the true spirit of the Commonwealth Government to neglect Aboriginal affairs.”
He goes onto say: “Aboriginal people in Central Australia see themselves as a distinct desert group, separate from the rest of the NT.
“Our culture, languages and kinship systems are different to the NT and other states.
“This is another slap in the face for Aboriginal people by the Commonwealth Government who are showing their true agenda of creating disharmony, division.”
I think there is more disharmony and division in his talk. We are all Australians, aren’t we, trying to head towards a future to be treaded all the same!

Just another government official bla bla bla …

Maybe the gate is part of the 40.5m from the government and cost them $100,000 to put in and another 25,000 for the lock?
