Comment on Aboriginal flag to fly year round on Anzac Hill by Interested Darwin Observer.

Victory is ours. Anyway, now lets move on.
I don’t personally see the need to fly the TSI flag. This is Arrernte land and I am not suspecting TSI people will take offense to it missing nor expect to see it flying.

Can council please put the same energy into the disgusting amount of rubbish littered through the town? There are bylaws for this but not much action…
The amount of litter through CBD, on council lawns etc is terribly off putting for both locals and tourist alike. Dealing with littering may not be overly symbolic but it sure is practical.

Qantas boss earns 270 times the national average
It’s called capitalism. You can always buy stocks in the company and vote against pay rises and so forth.
Qantas “owes” the NT tourism sector nothing.
Point the finger instead at the under achieving, completely incompetent, unqualified and inexperienced minister for tourism – Lauren Moss.
Her claim to fame is being the youngest ever NT Parliamentarian not for actually achieving anything in her portfolio!
Unlike Alan Joyce who keeps getting contract renewals, pay rises and keeps the company making (record level) money, Minister Moss will soon be out of a job.

Police gets street parking, cops’ private cars in compound
Alice Springs Town Council freely giving up the public’s car parking reminds me of the free pass that successive Federal governments have been given when ramming legislation of “national security” through Parliament.
There really is no need for the council to prioritise this parking to police. It is a nuisance to the public.
Also, the parks often have unmarked police cars.

Ministers lash out at council over gallery
No one in their right mind believe these guys could deliver a project of this significance.
Dale Wakefield, Lauren Moss and Michael Gunner will certainly be on the list of the unemployable. Generally cushy jobs and consultancy positions become available to ex pollies, but the complete ineptitude of this trio will no doubt leave them jobless once they are booted from office next year.
In the last three years they have achieved NOTHING.

Rules for outback work travel may catch some out
So not even the regulator can reasonably manage all the bureaucracy they impose?

Value of NT mineral production highest ever
It is important to understand that this is the value of goods and is no indication of production.
Given terribly low business confidence and the struggling manufacturing sector a great deal of this growth must be attributed to growing market prices.
Certainly major export commodities such as manganese has seen considerable growth in value over this period.
But again, as the NT Minister for Resources said recently: “I’m not a mining expert …”
You got that right minister, you are an electrical trade unionist.
