No cops, no clinics
The way I see it, if people want to live on the land (as they have for thousands of years) then they should.
I have never understood why the NT Government are responsible for setting up police, shops, schools and health centres in these locations.
Essentially creating a tiny (white fella style) town at very high cost to the tax payer and very high safety risk staff .
Why not focus on the regional towns and ensure they have the services needed and let the people who want to live out bush do so without the benefits of “city life” AS THEY ARE OUT BUSH.

How many Welcomes to Country is too many?
I lived next door to an Elder a few years back when all this started and he told me the welcome to country was a made up white man thing to make them feel better about taking their land.
It is not their way but if they were willing to pay him (it was $2,000 a pop) for a one minute speech he would go along with it.


VIDEO: Watch yourself in the NAIDOC march this morning
Fighting “for what’s right” would include having a deterrent for not breaking the law, and repercussions for breaking the law!
Not fixing this problem won’t fix anything. Allowing kids to not be punished for crimes is inviting the development of serious offending adults, with no future for them and their families.
Maybe there should be more talk amongst parents and shaming when they don’t do what they should do.


Man charged with sex offence, boy with multiple thefts
In a small town this should be on the tips of everyone’s tongues. But no, just business as usual, and if anything a slow news day. Sad.


Drunk driver had 11 people in his car
And nobody is surprised. Sad.


‘Catastrophic’ drop in construction work
And yet I still can’t get a tradie around for a quote for house upgrades, because they are too greedy for juicy Government works.
Rare to find a tradie nowadays who doesn’t own multiple properties early on in their work life.
I chose the wrong career path obviously.
