Watched the press conference. A joyous presentation to Territorians who apparently live only in the Darwin area.
Fishing camping swimming, markets.
Not a word about Central Australia.
I could drive up the Ross Highway to Trephina or Arltunga and pass two outstations and a couple of dozen cows but I can’t.

Spend most of their time advancing personal interest and make bad decisions.
They seem to have no clue what the well paid third level bureaucrats are doing. Sweep them out and let’s have wards. Make them represent the ratepayer.
