N is for

NORTHERN TERRITORY. The 'intervention' begun by the last government to address certain issues in remote aboriginals communities, is so complex that it is difficult to talk about intelligently.
On the one hand children in peril demand swift intervention for their protection, on the other so much 'intervention' smacks of patronising interference of the white fella knows best kind.
We still ahven't got this right after 200 years.
