Public’s Poo Patrol Pessimism

The Territory Government’s much publicized ‘Poo Patrols’ are a lesson in abject failure, Shadow Attorney General and Member for Port Darwin John Elferink said today.

“On the way to my market stall this morning, I counted at least 15 itinerants lying and sitting on footpaths between the Parap lights and the Parap shops.”

 

“All morning, members of the public have been complaining about the failure of these Patrols to bring about significant change.” Mr. Elferink said.

“This Government has lost control of our Streets and their Press Releases and hollow promises no longer convince anyone.”

“Across the Territory our communities are under siege as a result of the Henderson Government’s failed policies. This is maladministration at its most basic and Labor is bereft of ideas.” Mr. Elferink said.
