Comment on Tourism smaller but better, pollies must talk to the people by Reality Please, Tourism is a Maybe.

Tourism has been a good spinner but really who will be able to come to the NT from overseas until Corona has a vaccine
Even then it only takes one infected person from Asia, Africa, South America who are backpacking to dare I say it, wipe out an Aboriginal community.
The truth is Aboriginal communities and people are most vulnerable and it is only by the grace of God and geography that there has not been a Corona breakout in Aboriginal Australia.
It is Aboriginal communities and people who will stop tourism simply by their way of life and the flu season is now upon us – winter.
Therefore, how does government start up a tourism industry from even here in Eastern Australia, let alone overseas where the chances of spreading Corona are real as shown in Darwin with the Defence Force personnel with Coronavirus reported and now in hospital.
As Mr Gunner said “I am not even thinking about opening the borders” and Alice Springs is not trusted by Darwin or Canberra by prohibiting camping in biosecurity areas?
I would think there are biosecurity areas all over the NT including Darwin?
Stinks of the Berrimah line mentality to me.
Truth is tourism is still a maybe and Central Australia is not trusted by Darwin.

We will not feel the economic benefits for years from this projected estimates funds, maybe not at all with weirdo fracking people. It’s up to the people on these issues, economic enterprise and prosperity or weirdo anxiety affected that creates high unemployment and extreme poverty. Your choice, NT.

Deloitte to close Alice Springs office
It would be advisable for all Alice Springs and Central Australian businesses to utilise Alice Springs accountants.
If Deloitte cannot support Alice Springs Business it naturally follows we cannot do the same.
There are plenty of accountants in Alice Springs who would be happy for the work.

Person offences up, property down, in lock-down month
I have lived in communities with curfew and they do not work.
Aboriginal kids actually play the game with Night Patrol and police by throwing rocks on roofs and disappearing into the bush.
Aboriginal kids think its fun and then when they are caught and taken home they laugh with parents who allow them out again.
What’s missing is a dedicated venue to hold these kids until their parents are called. Then there should be the question asked about the ability of the parents’ responsibility. Curfews sound good but in reality they are a bit of a dog whistle, really.

Conflict of interest: Councillors allow candidates Ryan, Paterson to attack Government

This is normal democratic evolution of democracy. Whats the fuss?
If you do not know of this then maybe you have not had the everyday benefit of living in a built up area? Any way this is normal stuff. We love Alice Springs.

Masters Games this October, not 2022: Lambley
I’d like to see the Master Games back but it will only take one infected Coronavirus person to kill many Indigenous people. Right now it’s a Russian roulette just with movement to Indigenous communities.
