In reading Phillips & Ors v Chief Health Officer & Anor  NTSC 97 (Phillips) we have noted that Ray Phillips, Conan Hammett and John Anstess are just stooges of United NT Business.
In paragraph 13 of Phillips the defendants (the NT Government) noted that on the 13th of October 2021 it was announced that vaccinations would be mandatory yet it took the plaintiffs almost two months before they commenced proceedings. The three plaintiffs in Phillips could never have afforded to commence proceedings were it not United NT Business, hence why we call the plaintiffs stooges.
Phillips brings into question so-called special measures arrangements in relation to Aboriginals in the Northern Territory. In paragraph 22 of Phillips there is a mention of a ‘special measure’ made for the benefit of Aboriginal people. Should the plaintiffs at a later date receive a positive judgement in this matter it be the end of special measures in all matters related to Aboriginals in the Northern Territory including government employment.
The Trust has only one message for the three stooges, go and get vaccinated and stop wasting everyone’s time. As for United NT Business (the CLP by proxy) the vaccination mandate serves as a vehicle to get some headlines.
