Six months before the NT general election on August 2016, then-Labor opposition leader Michael Gunner told Mix 104.9’s Katie Woolf that his government would be “excitedly boring”.

Eighteen months later Gunner -- much to the relief of most Territorians -- has certainly led a boring government. Though more than a few pundits -- particularly those who were able to make such merry hell of the four years of chaos inflicted by the Country Liberal Party between 2012 and 2016 -- will be less than happy at the absolute lack of scandal that the first quarter of Gunner’s first four-year electoral term has delivered.
