TUESDAY FEBRUARY 5 2019 OPINION 21 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Will you celebrate Chinese New Year? YES I havent before but I might join some friends to celebrate. YUSUF SURTIE, MILLNER YES Ill cook Chinese but I wont go out. TRACY BEESLEY, BELLEMACK YES But I might get Chinese takeaway. KYLIE ROBERTS, TIWI NO Im not Chinese, I wasnt aware it was happening up here. WAYNE WILSON, DARWIN NO I wont be celebrating, its not as big up here. FABIEN LUCOSSON, STUART PARK SPEAK UP Jerome Motlop and Bradley Mitchell during the Buffaloes and Wanderers match at TIO Stadium Picture: GLENN CAMPBELL Super snaps economy (esp gunshops, if not for NT wildlife) - & he, saved from having to gutbust workuntil 67/7O for it. Whod b a poor old worn-out pollie. How can i put this. Buffs you suck. Play footy as a team, not 20 Progressives can come up with all the fancy parenting rainbow dogma they like - but ment. Gerry Wood is spot on. I want to know how much money we are spending on those advisers that are sending the territory to the dump. They dont seem tohave any accountability! Pete, Rapid Creek At least Scullions 1/4 mil a yr pens will b good for the local Customers are whats needed. Damien Edwards Wont be shopping there. Plenty of established places that need support as it is. Id rather help them out nom nom. Kylie Bowler Restaurants going broke left, right and centre and someones had the brilliant idea to open more food outlets. Talk about over saturating an unsustainable market. Trent Menzies A BIT OF PIE IN THE SKY if you ask me it will end the mall Galleria eating hall of shops and put the nail in the coffin for the mall ANYWAY by the time this is built there will hardly be anybody living or working in the city Arfer Apple Sooo the cafes and restaurants that are the ONLY things keeping town alive at a status of a comatosed vegetable will now suffer and close just as everything else has? Nicholas Parry Is this some kind of joke? What about the struggling businesses in the area? How many others are going to be forced to close their doors? Something we dont really need right now, thats for sure! Graham Bouchere Looks about as tasteless as some of those concrete block and stick on plastic stone houses in zucoli or johnston or durack heights. James Neill Everything else is closing down, makes sense to keep building lol. Dan Brant And closed by the end of next year Caitlin Sherlock And who the hell is going to frequent it, locals wont and tourists seem too wary, understandably so.? Fred Rossiter Bojack Bond-Street I hope theres at least 5 roast and noodle shops William Tll TURMOIL IN THE NLC Scullion is going shooting and fishing dont bother with him. Chris Matthews txt the editor ON MANY THINGS Why the hell are they digging up cavenagh st near the crap shade structure again. There was nothing wrong with it. More money for mates by gobbling gunner. 23.5 degrees, brrrrrr! Thats starting to get on the chilly side of cool [gets back under doona]. Darwin must be the coolest city in Oz at the mo CLP OPENS SENATE SPOT FOR NOMINATIONS If they pick a former MLA who was turfed out of office they deserve to lose the Senate seat, please note that a number of years ago Labor narrowly missed picking up BOTH Senate seats! While it is unlikely that both the seats will go to Labor it almost has had precedent! Adriaan de Leeuw NEW FOOD COURT PLANNED FOR KNUCKEY ST People initially like new shops but if they dont have the money they wont go back. How about lower power and taxes so people can afford to live here and go out for dinner and spend money at shops Hannah Curran Its just gonna sit empty like the restaurant section at Gateway. Sam Wise Boundlessly ridiculous. Lucy Moore Darwin needs another eatery like it needs a hole in the head. world wide web news@ntnews.com.au scullion pays on his $250K pension for 18 years of so called service to the community. Coming back as a politician in my next life! Mr Gunner - please stop grinning: this is serious. The dismal NT Govt proves that more females in politics (or as ministers) - is not some magic fix for anything. every child born has an innate right to a mother - & father. Not by law of Any religion, parliament, tribunal - but by the Laws of Nature. Millions of yrs worth - even the Progs subject to (they think pro same-sex humantech will cleverly outwit.) Worked 36 years for nt govt however my pension is probably equivalent to the tax nigel 0428 NTNEWS Gunner not on our planet THE current crisis the NT is in would be more likely to be able to be dealt with if the Chief Minister was in the same universe as the rest of us. The contents of his article NT dont despair, in the Sunday Territorian of February 3, would suggest he is not. The CLP left Territorians with a deficit of $867 million. What he forgot to say was that was down from over $2 billion and all he has managed is to get it heading back to nearer to $3 billion? The CLP squandered the INPEX boom. The INPEX project did not end on August 27, 2016? Where is he living? If Nathan Lyon cant tour England, then the Aussie team could get a lot of help from Gunners team, they obviously have a lot of great reverse spinners! Peter Still, Bakewell LETTER OF THE DAY
