Commenting on the story: Section of SE Freeway to be upgraded to three lanes

What are the government thinking about? How is this going to relieve congestion over a 30 metre distance?

It is bad enough travelling along the freeway trying to exit at Stirling and having drivers come out of Crafers expecting you to move over to let them in.

This is almost impossible because you can not move over and get back in in the short distance available, let alone have a third lane in the mix.Andrea McLeod

Commenting on the story: Rail privatisation fight explodes, but the evidence is not black and white

As voters we would be so much easier to be swayed on the merits of privatising trains and trams, if only the Libs could explain how a private company employing the same number of personnel as are currently engaged in running our network, being paid the same award rates of pay, paying the same dollars into the superannuation funds of the employees as existing, and providing the public with the same services and timetables as we currently experience, can do all this without charging the state government more, and still make some profit to benefit its shareholders.

The Libs have been singularly lacking in detail as to why this step is so desirable.Jerome van der Linden

Commenting on the story: Touch Of The Fumbes: Theatre of pain

As a child I chose my own model of mediocrity and have supported Collingwood for 60 years.

So I read Fumbles each week with a detached mirth. It’s brilliant.

As an objective football observer – but a parochial South Australian – it has saddened me that we allow otherwise virtuous characteristics such as tolerance, patience and loyalty blind us to the point of impotence.

Adelaide is incestuous and we know what generational incest leads to.

If we don’t, just point at Adelaide’s genetic mediocrity.

Always look forward to Mumbles on Mondays. – Grant Ley
