This is the third instalment of the NT Independent’s 2020 Year in Review. In this segment we relive some more of the only-in-the-NT absurdity of the year, with the NT Police executive telling officers to lie to the public; the NT Government lying to voters with misleading financial figures before the election; an unresolved conflict of interest at the public broadcaster’s Darwin newsroom making national news; some more questionable trips at taxpayer expense and the Chief Minister finally getting his Dan Murphy’s that he wanted all along despite stopping it at every turn for four years.
This is the second instalment of the NT Independent’s 2020 Year in Review. In this segment we relive some of the truly magnificent ‘no consequences’ moments of the year, like a senior public servant going to Disney World; the Administrator going wherever she pleased and then causing legal constitutional concerns; the Police Commissioner dancing for the Chief Minister and a deeply unpopular NT Labor Party winning re-election as the public service and net debt levels grew to record heights.
EDITORIAL: As the tumultuous year that was 2020 takes its final gasps, the NT Independent is looking back at the year in news with our three-part series on the stories that made headlines – many of which likely wouldn’t have happened had this online paper not existed. And we feel we need to continue, despite the government’s attempts to silence us.
