      PRIME MINISTER FOR INDIGENOUS AFFAIRS? HARDLY

      ABC The Drum: Prime Minister for Indigenous Affairs? Hardly
      http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-09-12/graham-prime-minister-for-indigenous-affairs/4951900
      13 Sep 13: "If the swing against the Coalition in
      Aboriginal communities was replicated across Australia,
      Tony Abbott would be leading a minor party, writes Chris
      Graham. ... One problem: no-one, including within the
      media, ever stopped to ask Aboriginal people if they
      actually wanted a "Prime Minister for Indigenous Affairs",
      and in particular whether or not they wanted Abbott.
      As it turns out, they apparently don't. Believe it or not,
      there is a simple way to get a broad feel for Aboriginal
      voting aspirations. All you need do is look at booths
      around Australia that are identifiably Aboriginal. ... "

      12 Sep 13: "The average vote directed to Labor in
      identifiably Aboriginal communities outside the Northern
      Territory (we’ll come to the NT seat of Lingiari shortly,
      because it’s a whole other train wreck) was 71 percent. The
      swing against the Coalition in some booths climbed as high
      as 40 percent, and averaged around 12 percent. That’s more
      than three times the national average (a 3.51 percent swing
      to the Coalition). And that’s in booths that overwhelmingly
      already voted Labor in the first place." By Chris Graham,

      Green Left: Abbott has no mandate from Aboriginal Australia
      http://www.greenleft.org.au/node/54937
      14 Sep 13: " ... Australia, a nation that continues to
      stray further and further from the only real solution
      - self-determination. Tony Abbott can quite rightly claim
      to have a mandate to govern Australia. But he has nothing
      even closely resembling a mandate to claim to be "Prime
      Minister for Indigenous Affairs". For some reason, I doubt
      that’s going to stop him claiming it, nor prevent the
      mainstream media circus from blindly embracing and
      reporting it." GLW author Chris Graham

      13 Sep 13: "NATIONAL: ... ANALYSIS ... The latest Census
      results found that the Labor government was failing in
      bridging the gap in employment outcomes between Indigenous
      and non-Indigenous Australia. It remains to be seen whether
      a disproportionate focus on the work of Andrew Forrest and
      GenerationOne will have an effect on closing the gap, or
      contribute to it widening. If anything, the data is simply
      not there." By Amy McQuire,

      ABC Darwin: Peris criticises intervention, super shires
      http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2013/09/13/3848172.htm
      13 Sep 13: " ... Incoming Northern Territory Labor Senator
      Nova Peris is criticising some Labor Party policies,
      including ... creation of super shires, saying the moves
      have taken power away from indigenous people. ... The
      so-called super shires policy was introduced by the former
      ALP government in the NT in 2008, and involved
      amalgamating 63 small councils into eight larger shires.
      Ms Peris said she understood the economic reasons for
      wanting the super shires, but the changes had a big impact
      on Aboriginal employment. ... "I want to get out there and
      be a voice for the people and to travel out to the
      communities to ensure that what is being implemented is
      achieving outcomes," she said." By Xavier La Canna
