So far, Trump has relied largely on the media to get his message out. As one experienced Donald-watcher explained: “It’s not that he hates the media – he doesn’t like investigative reporting about himself. Hillary hates the press. She’d be fine if the press never covered her again, but Donald Trump wouldn’t.”

Clearly built without the aid of an architect, Po' Monkey's Lounge crazy structure sat in the middle of a cotton field — a mile and a half off Highway 61.

"Soft as, bruss!" Tony Jones flogs Adam Giles with a feather

Bob GosfordJun 2, 2016

Giles can win this election, even with the odds stacked against him. Incumbency and being cashed-up will help with that but, with most of his senior list retiring he'll be hard pressed to put together a quality team if he does win, and the NT's economy is set to all-but-collapse in the next 12 months.

Ask a Red Centre tour guide - you can’t tell Australians anything. During school holidays we would always get a lot of school trips; of the ones I guided 100% of students climbed up Uluru along with most of their teachers.
