As stated before we don’t need another art gallery here. Even if at the civic centre or Anzac Oval … where to park?
We have too many art galleries already and they are downsizing.

Mass rally shows fury, distrust for police, government
Interesting how you only focused on the rally and not what happened Thursday night when youths damaged businesses and also bashed a man.
We concentrate too much on rallies and other things but don’t work toward being united as one people in one country.
All the hatred now out there is dividing our country and I can see no peace between whites and blacks as there is too much mistrust. How sad for our nation. Divided we are now.

Big drops in grog crime, break-ins on way down: police
In response to Domenico Pecorari: Can I say figures can be manipulated very easily and I’m sure they have been.
The police do what they can when they arrest people but a slap on the wrist from the court system doesn’t teach the offender anything.

Big drops in grog crime, break-ins on way down: police
What a load of rubbish.
The police really think crime has gone down and everything is hunky dory here.
Get off your damn figures and go around the town and see what sort of nonsense is going on every day.
I thought the police do a good job but the bosses fudge the statistics.

Online hate speech by leading tourism figure
Seems Mr Thompson is expressing his views about what certain elements do at night by smashing windows etc.
The whole town is sick of it and businesses pay so much extra for insurance because of it.
Lock them up and throw away the key.
Nothing’s changed in 50 years with these people. The NT Government has no solution. And as for Southerners who comment and try to do something they have no idea of the problems faced here.
I don’t know of a real solution.
Excuses, excuses all the time from powers that be.
