Comment on Compromise was needed to save youth crime plan by Fred the Philistine.

I would say no way we fly the Aboriginal flag on Anzac hill.
We Australians fought under the red and blue ensign. As in my family 35 members fought in the WWII. We were Polish descendants – does that we should have a Polish flag? No way, our family fought under the flag of Australia.

Compromise was needed to save youth crime plan
@ Domenico: The Australian flag has been around for 100s of years.
The Australian flag which flies upon Anzac hill, commemorates everyone who fought in the world wars.
It has nothing to do with the Indigenous and their land. If they want to fly their flag, let them do it on their sacred sites, not ours.

The rest of Australia is starting to wake up, that investing in the Territory is not good value.

The Territory is broke
It’s laughable as the Territory wanted to become a state. So much for self governing. Nothing has been achieved. Too much money wasted.

It’s no surprise. Never seen a state / territory run so poorly.
