Comment on See the Red Centre without setting foot in Alice Springs by Evelyne Roullet.

Reading the article I can hear the voice of the poet Angela Wybrow

This town is becoming like a ghost town;
Many of our local shops are closing down.
Once upon a time, this town was really hopping,
But now people go elsewhere for their shopping.

The life from our town has been sucked out,
And nowadays there is hardly anyone about.
Local people go to other towns and cities:
That it has ended up this way, is a real pity.

The town’s population is rapidly growing,
But trade in our shops is rapidly slowing.
Many units stand empty for years and years:
Owners found the rents were just way too dear.

We need some life breathed back into town;
We need to turn this situation back around.
Of help for new businesses, we need much more,
So that our town can be the place it was before.

New COVID initiative rehashes old projects
I have two questions:
• How much this committee will cost us, as I do not think that Dale will not get an extra allowance for her new portfolio and that the committee members do it pro bono.
• Will the government listen to the decisions and findings or ignore the results like for the guidance from the National Reference Group for the art gallery?

Country Liberal Party: custodians ignored on gallery
@ Surprised: A moot point can be either an issue open for debate, or a matter of no practical value or importance because it’s hypothetical. Therefore it is not a mute point when you said: “He who pays, makes the rules. Like it or lump it.” Your comment is opened to debate
• Who is “he”? In my opinion “he” is the people of this country paying taxes and a lot of Aborigines pay taxes.
• This article is about “the custodians being ignored”.
• It is their art their culture and yet all the discussions and debates are based on the “invaders” making money from something of which they have no knowledge and for which they have no respect.
Let them decided what they want.


CLP would build gallery at Desert Park, not Anzac precinct
Alex the whole performance of Gunner’s government is a major political scandal.
The governor general should had sacked him longtime ago (Whitlam was dismissed for less than that).
Could some one from the party explain in details here for all to see what Gunner has achieved in his time on power? It is the right of the public and the voters.


Gunner again cites COVID for his failing to answer questions
All politicians during interviews, especially before elections, should do it hooked up to a lie detector (polygraph).
They are not 100% accurate but better than nothing.
