The despised porn & grog signs at entrances to Prescribed Communities are not legally required!


Gee, Networkers, I am sitting here spitting chips.  How many things go unchallenged in our nation because the powers on high lead us to believe that something is the Law of the Land?

Turns out that these signs which are at the entrance to "prescribed communities" under the Northern Territory Emergency Response (commonly known as "The Intervention") and which are despised - surprise, surprise! - by those who live on the thus signed communities are not a legal requirement!!!!

What would we do without Estimates Committees and forensic questioning by our elected representatives?
Looks like we have to check every jot and tittle of what the Feds and the NT Government are up to under The Intervention.  Might be a few others things that shouldn't be happening?  Shall we test income management?  Misleading housing deals and land grabs? Discrimination when Aboriginal communities don't get the same basic services as mainstream communities?  Could tie up the High Court ad infinitum!
