The Chief Minister's chief minder didn't have a fantastic strike rate with his bid for one-on-ones with Town Council members about the National Indigenous Art Gallery: Cr Cocking and Cr Auricht (left) were clearly in no mood for behind closed door tactics. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
"It's the tourism, stupid." Planning for a grand "national" art gallery descends into small town bickering as visitor spending is in a massive 12-year long decline. Photo: No, this ain't the new Alice art gallery. It's the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao which turned a grimy industrial city into super destination for tourists. COMMENT by ERWIN CHLANDA.
UPDATE 5:40pm: Response from Tourism Minister Lauren Moss.
The government withheld information that should have been before the public in a proper consultation process prior to making a decision on the Anzac Oval location, writes Gary Higgins, Leader of the Opposition. IMAGE from the report released today: A house of cards?
