Our Brave Leader has announced that the run to the election is on and he would like you to forget all the bad stuff of the last couple of years and, rather, enjoy the show as his government jumps through hoops like a pack of performing seals for your amusement.

“At the half-way point of the parliamentary term, an energised Government was looking forward to a period of heightened activity and achievement, Chief Minister Jon Stanhope said today. Among the highlights of the remainder of this parliamentary term would be the Governmentâ€™s responses to a high-level inquiry into affordable housing options and the new Skills Commission, an unprecedented capital investment in public education, continued investment in the security of the Territoryâ€™s water supply, the completion of some significant infrastructure projects and the election of a representative Indigenous body.
