It’s reported that our major charities are being precious about how much of Australia and the rest of the world’s generous donation of multi millions of dollars will be passed on to those who have lost so much during our bushfire Armageddon. This is the way charities tend to operate and it is very wrong.
Congratulations to all Northern Territorians who earned honours and recognition in the Australia Day Honours List. And thanks to all Territorians (there are many) who put their best foot forward in sincere determination to better our place each and every day.
I could never understand (and still don’t) how the Giles Government could claim the leasing of Darwin Port to Landbridges as a fantastic deal. It’s leased for $507 million for 99 years. $5.12 million a year for such a huge facility is more paltry than fantastic.
