Comment on Booze action pays dividends: Fyles by Chris.

You have to be kidding right? So the current NT government removed the POSIs, and allows chaos to descend, then panics, introduces a heap of rubbish, like floor pricing which has no effect, reintroduces the POSIs at the same time to cover their incompetence, and now wants a pat on the back for their effort. Give me a break, they are fooling no one.

Shooting, not selling feral camels
The biggest problem is not transport etc. That can be overcome as it is already happening.
And trackless? People can muster cattle on the APY lands. The camels are coming in for the water.
I think the biggest issue is with the landholders.
I know of the problems they were having with the donkey and horse musters.
It could be very profitable now and that profit margin is only going to increase once the full effect of the drought and fires take their toll on the cattle and other meat industries which is going to take a very long time to recover – unfortunately! Problems are just opportunities for solutions.

Shooting, not selling feral camels
All these people out there crying they need job opportunities / meaningful employment.
Well here is another chance that will slip by waving to them as it goes.
So many opportunities which could have quite a healthy profit that could be used for so many good things in the communities.
I can’t believe people actually have to fund this stuff. Would love to know why BHP is funding, just quietly. Even if it was just a cull and the meat was to go to waste, (which would be a real shame and loss of good income or good tucker for the communities).
I am sure there are people out there who would pay good money to go on a guided hunt to shoot camels.
Then again, why do anything if your being paid to sit down by the tax payer and cry poor me?

Three killed in road crash
The three people killed were actually really good people and good parents too.
Unfortunately, people will judge them on the final act of the driver.
This wasn’t an accident, it was an act of sheer stupidity that cost people’s lives.
I also understand the frustration of the people in Alice with regards to the crime in Alice.
The three who died had jobs and were a shining light in their community.
This does not excuse the stupid act of the driver, who could have killed other innocent people with what he did.
But to put all of them in the same category as the thieves, property smashers and assaulters is not fair.

Claire Hockridge found dead
Couldn’t agree with Ted more with regards to using the Aboriginal trackers.
Not only would it also go along way towards reconciliation by working together to achieve something great, but it would also give those people some purpose in life and hopefully inspire some of the younger generation to learn and carry on some very useful skills.

Vital police service to be withdrawn
Just when you think Gunner’s government couldn’t screw things up anymore, BOOM! Thanks for another kick in the guts.
