Comment on Uproar over welfare houses by James T Smerk.

This is the same for many houses around Alice, not just renal houses. I wish they would open one up in the golf course area, it would be good to see the posh part of town live like the rest of us.

Uproar over welfare houses
Interested, Rippa! I thought they dealt with this issue ages ago when they build the accommodation out by the show grounds, and then again with the dozen new houses just before the race course.
Maybe they could look at the issue of why this is a growing requirement and address the cause and not the effect.
I understand family need to be close at these times but if we can stop or slow these issues down it’s got to be good for everyone involved.
I think the government seem to be more interested in working reactively and not proactively.

Yes, everyone keep talking about this thing that will never happen.
Why aren’t we coming up with alternative ventures for the Government to build?
They have been promising this for far too long while doing nothing else (big project wise) for the town.
Stop following their carrot and make them give us something else!


Online hate speech by leading tourism figure
We are focusing on the wrong thing here. Someone is angry that someone else is breaking the law and constantly getting away with it. I would be angry too and wouldn’t hold back from swearing. Let’s get angry at the criminals and not the victims.

‘Voter apathy greatest threat to Territory democracy’
It’s great everyone having a vote. The trouble is when the vote is coming from someone who is uninformed and simply votes based on what they have been told by old mate ‘Fred’ which might or might not be based on facts.
Would be good to have unbiased forums and information sessions held in communities pointing out the differences on who you are voting for.
And not a system where they vote who they are told to by old mate who tells them how to vote at the front door.
