Comment on Help from fracking campaigner, or orchestrating students? by John Bell.

To those Alicians who profess outrage at the claim that the student Climate Change protest was a political stunt organized in this Federal election period:
I strongly suggest that the Political Stunt Deniers read Peta Credlin’s critical expose of the nationwide push into our schools by GetUp! strategy that was published in the Sunday Herald Sun.
Of course you PS Deniers will turn tour nose up at Peta and News Limited. However, Peta knows those in the halls of power on Capital Hill like few media commentators do.
One thing she does extremely well is to thoroughly research her topic for factual data. And she presents it fearlessly, without worrying what anyone thinks. A Warrior Woman in a Man’s World.
In every protest march there are the passionate foot soldiers and behind them the organizers and manipulaters of the populist masses.
In this case the school kids and behind them the adult Greens and GetUp! and political adult activists that Peta so accurately identifies and nails.
Alice is part of it. No different from the rest of Oz.
The passion of kids Kids manipulated by savvy adults pushing their so called “progressive” agenda in the causes that will get rid of all who think differently, “conservatively”, from all seats in the Parliament at the coming election.

Council may take up slack of the NT government
Advocating council to step in to take a role in the NT government’s debt problem is a double-edged sword.
The danger is that the role of “small government” by local council increasingly blurs the demarcation of powers between elected Parliamentarians whose role is to legislate, and elected councillors whose role is delivery of essential services eg roads maintenance, collection of rates and rubbish collection.
Local councils everywhere are stepping stones for wannabe State and Territory pollies. Local council charter is not meant to be political.


Looks like Wazza’s back
I have been asking Wazza questions of accountability for significant expenditure of Commonwealth grant funds in a charity for the Indigenous Marathon Project for six and a half years now.
As the keeper of public trust for the Aboriginal people of remote tribal communities in Lingiari, Wazza should be transparent.
He should come clean now that he remains the keeper for the next three years.
I would be very happy to get to his electoral office in Alice somehow for a cup of coffee and a couple of simple answers in the public interest.


Anti-fracking Greens: Are jobs for the dole schemes legal?
No discussion about the state of the economy. Neither NT nor national.
The Greens everywhere avoid discussing how to repair and grow Australia’s economy like the plague.


Back to the future with Warren Snowdon
Warren has an unenviable task promoting Labor’s Federal fiscal policies in the Lingiari electorate with the millstone of the Gunner government financial disaster hanging around his neck.
Understandably, he distances Federal Labor from NT Labor with his response to Erwin’s questions: “The NT Government is responsible for any debt it incurs. It has a responsibility to repay it. And it will.”


Price family were sole complainants against Cocking & Satour 
@James T Smerk. There are penalties for vexatious litigants in tribunals and courts. By way of award of costs against the vexatious litigant. I speak from practical experience. However, where the decision maker is simply a departmental committee, there is no jurisdictional power to penalise, to my knowledge.
