Norfolk islanders still waiting

Plans to do wonders for the governance of Norfolk Island have been kicking around since May last year, when there were suggestions the territory was bordering on "failed state" status. Debate on the Territories Law Reform Bill to achieve change resumed in the House of Representatives yesterday. The Opposition points out that a local administration geared for a community of 1500 or so could get by with something a bit simpler than the full force of federal freedom of information and privacy laws. Wait for it-debate was adjourned. (Update: the House passed the bill without amendment.)
