Your views: on rogue MPs, climate change and people who make a difference

Reader contributions

Today, readers suggest reforming the system that allows unrepresenative MPs, argue two sides to climate change, and appeal for more light among dark clouds.

Change the system, not just the member

Commenting on the story: Dutton urges voters to dump Senator Fraser Anning

Regarding Senator Anning, never mind amending section 8 of the Privileges Act to allow Caesar to judge Caesar.

Get rid of the quirks which permit the seating of an individual who garnered 17 (or thereabouts) primary votes. 

Our democracy should sort this out – don’t seat people who did not register on the horizon – not those who may for all sorts of reasons abuse such a right. – Frank Taylor   

Two sides to every story

Commenting on the story: School’s out for climate protest

It is all very well for Jim Allen and others to welcome adult conversations on the topic of global warming and to put down those who think “climate science is crap” – but he could be backing the wrong side of the equation.

While I have yet to hear anyone deny that the climate is changing (it always has…), he is backing theories that advocate that humans are the main cause of (apparent) current global warming. Some of us are more guarded about drawing this conclusion.

Further, from what I read, a lot of what is put out as “climate science” is really “crap”. All strength to those who warn against rushing head-long into “solving” what might be an insoluble (by humans) climate scenario. – David Linn

We need more Marcelas

Commenting on the story: More than a haircut: the simple human kindness that changes lives

It was a pleasure to read the lovely story about Marcela Lastra and Paul Mortimer.

I am a long-time client of Marcela and she truly is a benevolent dynamo. We need more Marcelas in this world.  

Well done Genevieve Meegan and thank you InDaily for some uplifting positivity in a world which seems increasingly grim. – Traci Ayris
