It is now abundantly apparent that Ben Roberts-Smith was either ill-advised or just plain pigheaded in regard to his action in defamation. One day a “saint” the next a sinner.
According to the BBC Roberts-Smith is a “liar and bully”.
Roberts-Smith is a perfect example of what is so common in Australia, the lauded individual extolled as a veritable saint who in reality is a liar and bully.
The Northern Territory Public Service is riddled with such people of the Roberts-Smith ilk. Perhaps you have encountered some of them. But it is not only the NTPS that has these individuals, the NT Legislative Assembly is also full to the brim with them.
Unbelievable? Yes we thought so as well until we investigated.
We have been reliably informed that a manager in an NT Government agency stated that ” I cannot have your job evaluated to a higher level because you will not win the position due to special measures”. Talk about making assumptions in regard to selection panels.
What is the NT Government doing about this situation?
Do you vote? Do not vote for politicians who support these policies. Thus do not vote Labor or CLP.
Teacher crisis – Combine the changing and challenging nature of teaching with the dysfunction of the NTPS along with the added psychopathy of managers and the executive officers.
Eva Lawler adds to teacher misery in the NT.
We are hearing a lot of bad vibes from NT Government public servants at the moment. Several public servants have contacted us regarding the upgrading of their positions. They fear they will lose their current jobs to special measures candidates and become displaced officers.
We did a some rapid research on the OCPE website and could find nothing about special measures pushing out current employees. However it does not mean that such things are actually happening. The OCPE has not updated the website in almost 2 years. LINK
If you work for the NT Government we suggest you always have a copy of The Asshole Survival Guide by Robert L. Sutton and the phone number of a good solicitor handy.
We wonder if Mark Monaghan has decided to take wee detour and head to Caledonia? Has Mark been perusing the finest single malts? Perhaps he has been considering having his very own tartan created? Why not a haggis on the taxpayer?
If he does make such a wee detour we hope he is greeted with a “Glasgow kiss”!
Natasha Fyles is sending the Northern Territory to oblivion. If you elect the CLP they will say Labor spent too much and there will have to major spending cuts. We suggest that you do NOT vote for either the Labor Party or CLP.
Create a new party.
Data from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare showed the rates of hospitalisations of Indigenous Territorians due to assault were the highest in Australia, particularly in disadvantaged remote areas.

There are many Australians who now claim to be so-called sovereign citizens. From our understanding these individuals believe they are not subject to the laws enacted by the parliaments of Australia. An interesting concept that has absolutely no basis legally. These “nuts” will tell you that it is all in the Magna Carta.
Just imagine a country full of freeloaders who refuse to pay tax running around armed to the teeth doing as they like. It sounds like the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The Northern Territory is like a petri dish for the growth of the lunatic fringe. According to our sources extreme right extremists including sovereign citizens are on the rise in the NT.
