New NT Government lineup - the 16th* CLP reshuffle since August 2012

It is almost impossible to keep count on how many iterations of the CLP government (under coup victim Terry Mills from August 2012 to March 2013) and Adam Giles (from March 2013 to date) - the ABC is today reporting the tally at fifteen but others are pitching sixteen, so I'll go for the higher number until proven otherwise.

Fear and Loathing '72 is ... "a kind of bible of political reporting. It’s given birth to a whole generation of clichés and literary memes, with many campaign reporters finding themselves consciously or unconsciously making villainous Nixons, or Quislingian Muskies, or Christlike McGoverns out of each new quadrennial batch of presidential pretenders."

He dealt with this journey over the last year with the same dignity and grace in which he lived his full and purpose filled life.

Chips Mackinolty and the long view (from Palermo) on the Adam Goodes furore: "La dimostrazione di sostegno è di circa un uomo aborigeno, un calciatore molto importante, che viene abusato dai tifosi razzisti ... simili in modi ad alcuni appassionati di calcio europei. Il suo nome è Adam Goodes, e in questa foto è sostenuto dagli aborigeni della regione centrale del deserto dell'Australia."

Robyn Lambley on the CLP and Chief Minister Adam Giles: "The Northern Territory Country Liberals have been betrayed, and taken over by a dark, unpleasant, amoral cabal" ... "the Chief Minister whose modus operandi is to eliminate, execute, annihilate and assassinate – and of course has no use for the truth."
