SUNDAY AUGUST 22 2021 NEWS 03 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Saturday, Mr Burgoyne confirmed Mr Young as the staffer behind the incident. During the verbal altercation, Dheran confronted me and had to be led away by a fellow staffer, Mr Burgoyne said. As I outlined in parliament at the time, Dheran used words to the effect of Youre that [expletive] Josh Burgoyne. You better watch your language and Watch what you say. Mr Burgoyne said he was astounded Mr Young had been picked as Labors candidate for the by-election in Daly, due to be held on September 11. My concern is, that if I do not speak up now, the Territory risks having a thug in parliament who, by Labors own admission, does not reflect the partys values, he said. But Mr Young said while he acknowledged his involvement in the incident, he did not use expletives and it was in fact Mr Burgoyne who had made divisive, unfortunate and insensitive comments earlier the same day, in parliament. Josh Burgoyne used the parliament on February 18 to encourage people to view footage of an alleged murder in Alice Springs on January 7, Mr Young said. Mr Burgoyne later apologised to the parliament for his comments. I recognise he apologised for them and that it was not my place, at that time, to address the issue directly with him. Chief Minister Michael Gunner backed in Mr Young as the Labor candidate for the September 11 by-election. I couldnt give two figs about an exchange of words over six months ago that both blokes have apologised for, Mr Gunner said. My priority and Dherans GET your kids down to the Darwin waterfront at 4pm for a fun family concert. Childrens entertainer Justine Clarke will be the star of the show, performing some of her favourite songs, such as Everywheres A Dance Floor. This song gets kids up and moving, I teach a dance routine to the song and then we do the whole song together, Clarke said. Normally Clarke would be performing with her band from Sydney but due to lockdown constraints she is singing alongside local musicians I am so excited to perform with Darwins best, she said. Clarke encouraged parents to bring their kids to the event and sit back and relax. Because of Covid19 restrictions adults cant sing or dance, so you can relax on the lawn and let the kids dance and have fun, she said. Children are the most energetic, honest and enthusiastic audience and performing to them is incredibly rewarding. The free concert is at the Darwin Waterfront from 4pm to 6pm. FLOSS ADAMS CLARKE TO GET KIDS DANCING Childrens entertainer Justine Clarke will perform on the closing night of the Darwin Festival.

The NT News in February reported a government staffer was formally warned after he allegedly threatened Braitling MLA Joshua Burgoyne. In a statement released on priority is serving the people of Daly and the Territory the CLPs priority is trading insults. THOMAS MORGAN POLITICAL REPORTER HOSPITALITY venues have welcomed a promise by Lord Mayor Kon Vatskalis to do away with alfresco dining fees if he wins re-election. The pledge would still need to be ticked off through council if Mr Vatskalis wins on August 28. For Cafe 21 owner Jenny Um, the announcement is music to (her) ears. For us, individually on the mall it costs us $32,000 a year, or approximately $600 a week. That cost would roughly double if Cafe 21 wanted to serve alcohol. Ms Um said the plan would ease the burden, especially following Covid-19 lockdowns. Any reduction is more than welcome because going forward, its just so uncertain, she said. Hospitality NT chief executive Alex Bruce said Mr Vatskalis had shown strong leadership and called on other candidates to join the pledge. A week out, do they support it or not? he asked.
