Comment on Federation Party announces candidates: more councillors joining the fray by Interested Darwin Observer.

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.

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.

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.

While your at it, perhaps would be good to ask about the number of NTPS jobs, slowly, discretely but surely heading north from Alice to Darwin.


Curfew a child protection measure: Territory Alliance
Maybe we could understand the impact on crime during what was essentially a “curfew” during the Covid-19 (over)reaction if the crime data was released.
Has anyone not wondered why April’s data is now five weeks overdue? In fact May’s data is due today also!
