Has badly needed cash for the Territory bush been hijacked?

Chief executive ’s nine-page report is filled with inconvenient accusations and has had everyone from northern politicians to east-coast PC activists running for cover ever since…..

…..Even worse, consider the decision to build a new hospital at Palmerston, just a 20-minute drive from . Both sides of politics at a Territory and Federal level are responsible for this calamitous move, one that was driven by bullshit arguments about the and allowed to proceed because Solomon is a marginal seat. God only knows how the plans to staff this new facility when it can’t even fill the roster at RDH. Perhaps that $150 million would have been better spent on renal services in remote communities, so patients don’t have to fly to Darwin every time they need dialysis. They would have saved a fortune on patient travel and might have even helped address the itinerant problem…..
