Comment on Booze consumption went up after floor price came in by Interested Darwin Observer.

Thank you NT Government brains trust for over regulating we the people and through it, increasing our cost of living and causing unnecessary interference in our lives.
Also thank you for wasting tax payers dollars on a study which had no possible chance of determining the impact of a regulation whilst it is coexisting with other, already proven, policies. I.e. PALI.
Further thanks for having the study completed by an individual qualified in Arts and Philosophy.
The 285 page report conducted by a group of alcohol expert academics is useless upon reading the fine print in the report:
“Some changes coinciding with the introduction of MUP … coincided with other interventions that were implemented at a similar time meaning the independent impact MUP was impossible to distinguish.”
Long may Socialism prosper!

Massive military spending: Election distraction?
Maya, what higher purpose does the democratically elected government of Australia have which is greater than national defence?
I am more than happy for my tax dollars to go to the cause of keeping Australia safe. That is job number one.
If you prefer a government that will instead raise taxes and spend it all on social outcomes such as education, housing and health – well that is your choice to vote those people in.
But Australia as a whole obviously doesn’t have an appetite for that. I can educate my children with or without taxpayers’ involvement. What I cannot do is buy and operate a missile system. That is what governments are for.
To believe that China does not or will not pose a threat to our way of life is naive in the extreme.


NT to become just one Federal seat of Parliament
Now we can be terribly “represented” by just the one member not two. I see this will make absolutely no difference. Neither MP has achieved anything meaningful for the NT.


Federation Party announces candidates: more councillors joining the fray
Arrunta Man – Not so sure of your theory.
Marli will struggle to be anywhere near competitive in Braitling. Catherine will also have a tough time find relevance in Namatjira. Kenny in Gwoya I am not so sure, but I would anticipate a Labor win there.


Federation Party announces candidates: more councillors joining the fray
This is a legitimate question to the candidates or the party leader:

Have any of the candidates established and operated a successful company and if so, what was it?

I see Marli is described as a “business woman” but this is somewhat vague.

Government is a business, when you don’t run it as a business you end up with endless programs and massive debts – just like what we currently have.


Person offences up, property down, in lock-down month
Detag, a word of advice: When you bring ones skin tone and biological appendages into an argument you have already lost the point you hoped to make.
