Comment on Government grant for Todd Tavern, Alice Plaza development by Evelyne Roullet.

Alert bulletin from the National Centre for Disease Control: The Gunner government suffers from megalomania, a mental illness.
Symptoms:
• delusional fantasies.
• inflated self esteem and overestimate powers.
Not contagious and only know treatment is the isolation of the patients.

Government grant for Todd Tavern, Alice Plaza development
The Todd Tavern (originally the Riverside Hotel) is another historic site and building that is going to disappear, another nail for Alice’s coffin.
This hotel has had various owners and various names, yet it remains the oldest hotel still in use in Alice Springs.
The original building on the site, built about 1918, was a store. In 1951 an application was made for a licence for the “Riverside Hotel” and was granted on condition that the hotel be built by 1954. Nevertheless it was to be 1958 before the hotel was completed.
Designed by architect Beni Burnett, delays to the building were caused by both Burnett’s death and that of Jim Richards, the local builder who died in a fall working on the Flynn Church. The hotel was eventually finished by Joe Kilgariff. The verandas were added in the 1970s.
Two historic buildings, the Turner House and the Stuart Arms Hotel, disappeared to give way to the Ford Plaza when in 1986 bulldozers moved in.
The Old Alice was dead and this was the first nail in the coffin.
In 1987 the second nail came – Marron’s Newsagency.
The third nail is Anzac Hill School.
Soon the coffin will be sealed and we will bury Alice.

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.
