How ironic that the conservatives and their media hacks are all of a sudden deeply, deeply concerned about conditions in Alice Springs at the same time there is a debate about a First Nations Voice to Parliament and a growing push to recognise January 26th as not appropriate to celebrate the nation for a myriad of reasons.

One of the political parties playing political games, colour me shocked.

If we were honest, all political parties game.

It's a pity serious problems can get overridden by the politics/media bluster when we just need real solutions.

Territory Labor has governed all but one term since 2001. It's not politics that is the issue, it's the strength of the misery industry combined with deeply flawed beliefs of what is the cause of the problems. The cause is the parents, just like nearly every out of control kid of any other colour. Until they address the actual problem and forget about the grandstanding paternal bullshit for fear of upsetting the influential city folk, it'll just keep getting worse. Land councils need a massive shake up too, they block individual communities from using their own lands to create industry and jobs, which leads to self-determinstion. Speak to elders on the ground, they'll tell you thst sit down money is a scourge.

Alcohol... makes some people want to punch on.
Especially young lads in their early 20’s..

most of the time there’s something that triggers it though. A past grievance, an accidental bump while passing each other in the crowded pub, fighting over a chick etc etc..

but in this instance there was nothing. It was just two lads that felt they needed to punch each other out after a few beers..

Had this discussion with a elder who had a property near Curtain Springs he used to drag youths in to break brumbies

So, two of your mates are thugs, pub brawlers, street fighters. Fight over nothing. Not well spoken and easygoing like you. :think:;)

Nah , only the vocal few indigenous folk and the lefty media...And the majority of those making the most noise have more European blood running through their veins than indigenous blood. Somebody needed to say it.

Aboriginals are just like everyone else. They are individuals who have their own personal views. They don't all hold the same view.

Personally, I think the date should be changed,

Same here ....I don't think changing the date is a massive issue ....most Australians, remembering we are now multi-cultural, just see Australia Day as another holiday

I don't have a problem with changing the day/date either but if anyone thinks that will stop the the carry on from the usual agitators and their supporters they are sadly mistaken..

If anyone wants to change the date to stop the 'carry on', maybe they should reassess why they want the date changed.
