Comment on Federal Police uses drone to spy on tourists by Gavin Carpenter.

It was a very popular spot for weekend BBQs 50 years or so ago, out of town, peace and quiet, reasonably easy to get there, out of sight, out of mind.
Dropped in there some months ago for a look, first time for years.
Wasn’t even sure how to get there again. Feds turn up within a few minutes of pulling up with the usual questions, Who? Why? Where etc. Your rego is out of date!
It was several weeks over so a trip via MVR on the way home. They come in handy for the odd things in life.

Curfew: What else could fix youth crime?
We attended a function recently. About half the number that should have been there were missing.
On contacting and approaching a few as to why they did not attend the answer from all were “we don’t go out at night anymore, will not park our car in the street at night”.
A couple of very long timers even said they were looking at moving out.
About time the powers that be found some intestinal fortitude and cleaned the place up regardless of what UN, social workers, dreamers and do-gooders have to say!

Conflict of interest raised in council’s rejection of gallery offer
So it is now the Town Council’s fault nothing has happened!
The council have finally got the message from the town’s people about what could / should / possibly happen and it so transpires it does not agree with the government line.
They now bring up any excuse to blame the council, the street sweeper, the garbage collector, anyone they can think of except themselves for the idiotic way they have gone about the whole process.
Kindergarten kids could do a better job. This whole issue has cost thousands through total incompetence of the current government.

Ministers lash out at council over gallery
More garbage and spin from a mob of incompetents.
If you want something to happen you take the crowd with you, something these clowns have no idea about. Had this happened in the first instance there is a fair chance the place would have been half built by now and millions saved.
Meetings behind closed doors will only get people off side.

Gallery statement by ministers mischievous: Councillor
Well said, Eli, a perfectly logical point of view. The current government could not be trusted to run the local Friday night chook raffle at the club.

Locally produced hemp could replace plastic
Come on Trevor, this is positive thinking and we unfortunately have very little of this available in the Territory.
I have two hemp shirts, the hemp grown overseas, the shirts made and purchased overseas and will get a couple more when overseas soon.
Best shirts I have ever had. Bad luck they are not Australian.
