Lobbyists Must Be Controlled!

Lobbying, which is the act of attempting to influence decisions made by government officials, can play an important role in the democratic process by allowing individuals and groups to share their perspectives and concerns with decision-makers. However, if not regulated, it can also lead to problems such as corruption and the undue influence of special interests over public policy.

Here are a few reasons why lobbying should be regulated:

  • Transparency: Lobbying regulations can ensure that the public has access to information about who is attempting to influence government decisions and how they are doing it. This can help to prevent corruption and ensure that the public can hold elected officials accountable for the decisions they make.
  • Fairness: Lobbying regulations can help to level the playing field by ensuring that all individuals and groups have an equal opportunity to influence government decisions. Without regulation, wealthy individuals and special interest groups may have an unfair advantage over others in the political process.
  • Conflicts of Interest: Lobbying regulations can help to prevent conflicts of interest by requiring lobbyists and government officials to disclose any potential conflicts of interest. This can help to prevent decision-makers from being unduly influenced by special interests.
  • Ethical Standards: Lobbying regulations can help to ensure that lobbying activities are conducted ethically and in compliance with the law. This can help to prevent corruption and maintain the public’s trust in the political process.

Overall, lobbying regulations can help to ensure that the democratic process remains fair, transparent, and accountable to the public. By providing oversight and transparency to lobbying activities, regulations help to prevent corruption, undue influence, and conflicts of interest, and promote ethical standards.

The NT Is Going Backwards

Our elected members have failed us. Crime continues to get worse as the social fabric of the NT seems to be disintegrating. Not one person is prepared to engage in the hard conversations that need to be held. Everyone remains tight lipped lest they be called a racist. Political correctness, self-censorship and cancel culture are ruining the NT. Whinging on social media groups will not achieve change. Change comes at the ballot with electing candidates who will take action.

Consider the idea of using security dogs in Alice Springs. There would not be enough security dogs in all of Australia to effectively patrol Alice Springs let alone dog handlers. The whole thing sounded like a subsidy scheme for a security firm. Besides it would not work, we are sure that those targeted by the dogs would soon start using poison baits. LINK

The Trust notes that Aboriginal people in the NT have always been on the outer, separate, marginalised so it is not surprising that many disengaged young Aboriginal people do not play by mainstream society’s rules. Yeh, they do not care and prison is considered to be a hotel, a criminal record is meaningless when it is their norm.


NTG Vendetta On Rolfe Not Novel

The Northern Territory Government and various bodies closely associated with the government (so-called independent boards, bodies, societies etc.) have a long history of retaliation against those who have digressed from the NTG narrative.

According to this narrative Rolfe should have been found guilty and now should be inside a prison. When things do not go to plan for the NTG it becomes vendetta time. Anything and everything will be used against the subject of the vendetta. No amount of money will be spared in pursuit of an individual.

Police, nurses, medical doctors, teachers, lawyers and various other public servants who have refused to be involved in cover-ups, have questioned mismanagement or have gained a victory like Rolfe have all become subject to the NTG vendetta.

There are those in the higher echelons of NTG agencies who become fixated with scoring a victory over an individual at any cost. The Trust has been provided with reliable information from several sources to verify that NTG officers will tell lies and commit fraud to carry out a vendetta. It is win at all costs for the NTG.

So it seems Zachary Rolfe is not the only NTG employee with a target on his or her back.

Telling tales or doing the right thing? When should you ...

Remember that the Northern Territory Government has vast amounts of taxpayer dollars to pursue an individual. So solicitors, barristers and investigators can easily be engaged by government, cost no object.
