FRIDAY JUNE 22 2018 OPINION 25 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Who do you think will win the World Cup? NO IDEA Im not really into soccer but theyre great actors. RENE XENIE, WULAGI ARGENTINA They have Lionel Messi so theyll win. DALLAS GILLETT, DARWIN CITY ENGLAND Id like either them or Spain to win. They play jolly well. MARGARET BABINGTON, FANNIE BAY AUSTRALIA Theyve got a good team. Up the Aussies! ZARA PATTISELANNO, FANNIE BAY PORTUGAL Theyll definitely win, theyre awesome. JACK HUSSEY, DARWIN CITY SPEAK UP 'Brit' the pup, pictured at the puppy yard at the RSPCA Clinic in Berrimah, is excited following the announcement of further funding for the clinic Picture: JUSTIN KENNEDY Super snaps has spent big on other venture and not paying bills. Lost $ every month last 12 and havent said a word to employees on what direction company taking. Why cant we send dehydrated meat overseas instead of live cattle. Surely that is more humane treatment of animals and they can rehydrate the meat at the other have any compassion for anyone. Jack Henderson, Larrakeyah. Signed I Am Woman just goes to show that whilst most women seem to support LGBTQIA they dont seem so keen for it in practice when asked to share their toilets with blokes. Another company in Darwin Police will do their usual terrific job - even though theyre understaffed and suffer from low morale. The problem is that when they get the damned miscreants into Court, the Magistrates punish them with a slap over the wrist with a wet lettuce leaf and release them back into society to do the same thing again within 24 hours. Ian Reduce the housing commission in the area and watch crime plummet! Just as it did in Parap! Chantelle OPINION: STRUGGLE REAL FOR TERRITORY WORKERS All Australian governments (local, territory, state and federal) have grown massively bigger over the past 40 years, consuming ever more of the nations wealth on mostly unnecessary services, and at the same time interfering and intervening in the operations of wealth producers and in the lives of individual Australians. Over-taxing, over-regulating and building ever larger bureaucracies has never increased the wealth and prosperity of any nation. These mindless measures instead destroy the wealth and prosperity of nations. Dave Wane My sympathies for the employees. The stark reality is that the economy of Australia is banjaxed by debt. Debt has replaced wealth. There is no money in the economy which is imploding along with the housing bubble. NT TELSTRA SET TO AXE 8000 JOBS ACROSS THE NATION Telstra need to return to call centres in Australia. Maybe then they can salvage something. Michelle N-BJay Shields How will axing 8000 employees & contractors, almost a quarter of its workforce, eliminate customer pain points? Kerry Kent txt the editor ON MANY THINGS Lasted stats on how well the north is doing, just take a look at the latest Darwin Katherine directory compared to last years. A shortfall of 59 yellowpages and 15 consumer white pages. Gee Gunner youre really on a roll! The US are getting what they wanted, and tough heartless President who does not NEW CCTV AT NIGHTCLIFF LOCAL SHOPPING VILLAGE I went through Coolalinga bus interchange on Sunday afternoon, there are CCTV cameras there too, two cars had smashed driver side windows. Cameras or not, they just dont care. Cameron Note to the Big Cheese for Crime Prevention in Darwin. London has tens of thousands of these cameras and yet it is plagued by an epidemic of crime. Detection of crime in London is laughably low such as less than 5% of burglaries. What Darwin really needs is more police with the right leadership, not the manifestly incompetent clowns we have had in place. NT @NT Your comment hardly makes an appropriate analogy. Londons population is currently a little over 10.5 million people. Whats Darwins??? How can you compare the two places? Besides which, the world wide web news@ntnews.com.au Im confused over by-laws IT seems the Darwin City Council has two sets of by-laws, one for the city and one for the suburbs. You cant park on the verge, obstruct footpaths, or the medium strip, or park in the wrong direction in Darwin city. But apparently you can in the suburbs. One only has to drive around and find multiple cars parked in the wrong direction in the street, parked on the verge on corners so drivers cant see what traffic is coming from a different direction day or night. After several com plaints to the Darwin City Council concerning the illegal parking, I was advised that the Darwin City Council alderman informed the DCC not to take action on this problem. In the last two weeks I have had sprinkler heads run over and broken by tradesman working on the house next door. The worst part is that when you approach them, they just laugh and refer you to the council. I have now turned off my sprinkler system. Name and address withheld LETTER OF THE DAY forthwith. Tennant Creek needs him to visit and be a presence in the town. Residents deserve his presence among them. HOP Our troubles started with Inpex! Theres no stop sign at a roundabout u prize turkeys. so dont damn well stop if nothins comin u fools. Horrace end. More work here at meat works for locals. Not at all suprised Audi drivers think they own the road. It must be the make of car. Road rules dont apply to them. Paul sp PM Malcolm Turnbull MAY visit Tennant Creek in August. This should be WILL visit. That visit should be confirmed 0428 NTNEWS
