Comment on Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: it’s not over yet by OMG.

The Aboriginal flag is a National Flag of Australia, one of only three, and is governed by a Commonwealth Act, therefore voiding the requirement for only locals to sign the petition.
The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet state that permission is not needed to fly a National Flag so why are they being forced to ask permission and petition?
These women are not as ignorant as some like to think. In fact they are exercising their express right, enforcing a Commonwealth Law and acting out the strength and smart they claimed in their original statement. Go ladies, show what real community consultation looks like!

Cr Melky: Mayor’s CLP candidacy, a risk for the council?
Our Town Council is a joke. Apart from two councillors, the rest are not in there for the betterment of our town or its people, [some] feathering their own nests and trying to advance their political careers and reputation.
They should be concentrating on their honesty, loyalty, morality, ethics and integrity!
The current Mayor is using the Aboriginal people of this town for votes – left his run in politics a little late?

Councillors send message to Jacinta Price
About time! She is only a name on paper! She does not have Aboriginal people at heart. It’s all about her. Change the record, Jacinta, you’re dancing to the wrong beat.


Custodians decline meeting with council on gallery
Good job! Thats what they get for trying to play (Aboriginal) people against each other.
All their underhanded and dishonest tactics backfired on them. Whilst trying to divide (Aboriginal) people, they have succeeded (unwittingly) to unite people and TOs.

How can someone earn so much money in a leadership capacity for so long and not make positive changes!?

@ Neil Woolcock. I was also at the meeting and your account of what happened is spot on!
I was not suprised at Price’s lack of support – nothing new!
The failure of Paterson to even pay attention was surprising – isn’t he Aboriginal?
The Mayor’s rudeness and disrespect was shameful and Auricht was on a mission. God knows what it was though!
