The Australian government wants to overrule Northern Territory on nuclear waste dump

The Australian government debates the ACT’s Euthanasia bill.  The debate seems to be all about euthanasia. But actually – not so.  This debate is about the rights of the ACT”s democratic government to make its laws –  or whether the Federal government can overrule them.

This looks like a precursor to the National Radioactive Waste Management Bill, where the same issue will arise, regarding the Northern Territory.  Perhaps that’s why we can expect that the Australian Government will not weaken on its over-riding of the ACT’s Euthanasia law.

If the y did weaken, well it might set a precedent that would inconvenience the nuclear/uranium lobby
