14th reshuffle: Tollner back in 'nest of vipers'


p2160-Natasha-FylesLETTER TO THE EDITOR
Sir – CLP chaos and dysfunction continues in the wake of yet another CLP Minister moving to the backbench – sparking the 14th Cabinet reshuffle in just two and a half years.
The calamity of events over the last week has left an incompetent CLP Government proving they can’t run themselves, let alone our great Northern Territory.
Matt Conlan [yesterday] resigned from Cabinet and abandoned his three portfolios of Transport, Infrastructure and Housing.
Robyn Lambley has been sacked from Cabinet and lashed out at Chief Minister Adam Giles saying lacks “honesty, integrity and respect”.
Dave Tollner, who resigned from Cabinet last year embroiled in a homophobic slur, is having his career revived by a desperate Adam Giles, despite referring to his CLP colleagues as a “nest of vipers”.
Ms Fyles said more than half of Adam Giles’ colleagues voted to oust him. Nine out of 13 Members of the CLP Government don’t think Arrogant Adam Giles should be Chief Minister.
Adam Giles admitted his deputy doesn’t have the “capacity, professionalism and tenacity” to carry out the top job but rewarded his disloyalty with the Deputy position, pushing aside Peter Chandler.
How are Territorians expected to believe that this, their 14th Cabinet reshuffle, will stick and instil some stability after two and a half years of dysfunction?
The situation within the CLP Government has gone past ridiculous and Territorians are calling for an early election.
The CLP are too busy taking care of themselves rather than Territorians.

  1. What’s with Labor letters to this site all the time?
    How about releasing some real policy issues, solutions. There’s a smorgasbord on offer with the current hideous government.
    Maybe then we, the public, will take some notice.
    I know I’m looking for options as are plenty I continue to talk to.
    If not Labor, then Independents.
    If I cop the same Braitling Labor option as last election, it will definitely be independent for me.
