Crocs in the Cabinet: The CLP, politics as farce and farce as politics

Bob GosfordNov 27, 2016

This book is about the fall of an empire – about the power struggles and missteps and flawed characters that took the CLP from the Northern Territory’s dominant political force to near extinction, from an election win in 2012 to holding just two seats in Parliament four years later: Ben Smee and Christopher Walsh.

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. Many had decided even before they departed school grounds that it would be the crowning achievement of the trip.

On "lifestyle choices" - an open letter to PM Tony Abbott from footballer Matthew Stokes

Bob GosfordMar 30, 20151 Comment

Comments like those made recently by our Prime Minister only serve to empower the ugly side of our society. For what it’s worth, I don’t think Mr Abbott was deliberately being racist, but one comment from someone in such a powerful position can cause so much damage.

Dumping on the Chief. Robyn Lambley on NT Chief Minister Adam Giles and more

I have no faith in a government lead by Adam Giles. I have stated publicly I believe Adam Giles has no integrity. I stand by that statement, and that alone is enough to mean he should not hold a position of community leadership. I believe a political party should be bigger than one person and as such I have not sought to depart from the Country Liberal Party. Robyn Lambley, 24 February 2015.
