Comment on Liquor Commission: Lawyer, social worker represent Alice by Surprised!.

The commission will have its work cut out for them.
Having two Alice Springs people and a former Alice Springs person Pauline Reynolds, will assist in at least us getting some local input.
It is more than apparent that the commission won’t win any popularity contests, but hopefully they will provide some much needed guidance to the policy makers.
In the end we may have a safer place to live.

Bottle shop cops need to be brought into line: local chain
I’m a little confused here. Is the issue the racial or the profiling?
I am white, possibly by selecting the wrong parents, nevertheless I am pretty sure I’m not allowed to send my kids to Yirara College.
I need two permits to drive to WA via the great central road to be allowed to go more than x metres off the road or camp along the drive. Says a lot about caring about driver fatigue.
Am I allowed in the renal clinic on Gap Road?
If I had selected different parents, I would be allowed to do these things.
So what is different? What, really is the go here people?


Is it time for a First Nations university?
I am unsure if it’s such a good idea.
I feel it may promote the already large gap between people.
I am of the understanding that white people would not be allowed to enrol and if that is the case, it is clearly racist.
Somebody asked who would fund this, well perhaps a consortium of the royalty receivers could, so that everyone has skin in the game and hopefully work together to make it a success.
If it goes ahead, it is imperative that the standard of education be maintained or it risks insulting and undermining the Indigenous people who previously worked so very hard and achieved great heights in the existing facilities.


US military base in Darwin: what risk to NT?
We all know how desperate Gunner must be to at least put one run on the board, so perhaps it’s as simple as an injection of $300m and the ongoings from that, plus the additional spend of the military personnel.
Based on the bullshit income the government tells us the red centre Nats brings in (BTW I like the Nats) we’d be set for life!
The Gunner induced deficit would disappear like a mushroom cloud in a tornado.


Why the NT Govt sacked the volunteers managing an icon
@ AScomment: It’s about the government giving its support to this icon.
Some mentoring may be beneficial rather than heavy handed tactics.
As someone pointed out, the government can’t even get its own arse in gear, or for that matter our taxpayer money.
At least the THF hasn’t put us in any debt !
At least the THF runs on passion unlike the government who is run by parasites.
I’m a director and a CEO so I understand the importance of good governance but also understand the importance of mentoring over bullying.
It’s a pity the government can’t sort its own mess out first.
I say apologise to Liz and the crew and offer some genuine assistance.


Soy sauce now only from a bottlo
You have to be kidding ?!*!
