POINTS TO PONDER

Matt Cunningham’s column (‘Get on with governing’, NT News, 27/6 is spot on. Too often politicans seem to be there for themselves rather than as elected persons charged with leading for Territory enhancement and the good of all Territorians. The energies of our politicans should be focussed on building their electorates and the NT as a whole. Instead, parliamentary sitting weeks are too often reduced to tatters by poor behaviour and spiteful antics. As Cunningham says, we deserve better.

The most obvious way to the future for the AFL in this COVID-19 disrupted season is to uplift all Victorian based teams to hubs in SA, WA, Queensland and possibly the NT. After quarantining and Victorian teams have played all teams in one hub, they move to the next hub . Victorian teams play each other on a rotation within interstate hubs. Finals should be played within the hub structure.

It is a great pity that Rio Tinto acted far too quickly in closing its alumina refinery at Gove. Following the closure, the price of oil used to fire the power station started coming down while the price of alumina started going up. This effectively reversed the economic situation Rio faced at the time of closure. Sometimes it pays to hold on, rather than taking economic decisions which turn out to be made hastily and prematurely.
