 PM - Little to change: Burke
Denis Burke spoke to Camille Funnell in Sydney late today.
DENIS BURKE: Well it will make a difference because a 17 year old under our mandatory sentencing provisions will experience detention on their second conviction on a court if they're judged unsuitable for a diversionary programme or fail that programme.
DENIS BURKE: Yes, because we discussed putting in place additional diversionary programmes, putting place an Aboriginal Interpreter Service, and the fact that it would take about $5 million additional to put that in place properly, and the Prime Minister agreed to that.

 NT ATTORNEY GENERAL - DENIS BURKE - GUILTY - CONTEMPT OF COURT
The contempt action followed a press conference Mr Burke gave on June 7 at which he described a challenge by NAALAS to the appointment of Hugh Bradley as the territory's chief magistrate as a waste of taxpayers' money.
NAALAS had argued Mr Burke's attack was intended to prevent the service proceeding with the case and dissuade witnesses from coming forward.
But he warned: "Mr Burke would be prudent to proceed on the basis that, if he were to repeat his contempt, the court would be likely to impose a very significant penalty; quite possibly a term of imprisonment."

This collection brings together the major fictional works of poet, critic and literary theorist Burke (1897–1993), one of the most unusual and adventurous American writers to explore mid-century modernist concepts and prose styles.
The book presents Burke's dreamy, ethereal novel, Toward a Better Life (1932 and later revisions), as well as 20 stories that showcase his wild imagination, which can be as frustratingly inaccessible as it is brilliantly luminous, often within the span of a few paragraphs.
Burke's sentences offer surprises that make this minor period work a worthwhile read, but don't expect it all to hang together.
