Commenting on the story: The ex-Libs club | Tall poppy syndrome

The Liberal Government attacking Mr Goh for having a nice car is gutter-level politics and a desperate grasp of reality.

Mr Goh should be applauded for years of study, hours of enduring patients with bad breath, spit, blood and digging around in people’s mouths.

Remember if Mr Goh didn’t buy his Bentley and pay his luxury car tax to the Federal Government, stamp duty, registration fees, everyone else would have to pay a little bit more tax to compensate.

 The purpose of a tax cut is to leave it where it belongs – with those who earned it.

This Government is purporting to cut taxes, yet taking it from those who earn it?

I support Mr Goh and I have never met him. – Chris Carter

In regards to the proposed land tax aggregation I feel angry and sick at the Liberal government’s arrogance.

This is class warfare at its political worst. Roberto Formato

Commenting on the opinion piece: Crows should welcome board democracy

I attended Port AGMs and the information supplied got less and less each year.

I stopped attending the year that the AGM was closed early so the board could go to the Adelaide Oval that Friday night of the Mundine/Green fight.

That was where the board’s priorities were – not to the members, who are really just seat buyers. Bill Hecker

Commenting on the story: Council bans fake grass from city verges

Seems double standards apply to council decisions.

Ok to chop down a few 100 year old trees in the name of safety and progress.

But I refute councils claim of artificial grass versses synthetic grass, heating up the surrounding areas.

Isn’t the black bitumen roadways the major heat sink causation? Or is our progressive council going to replace the bitumen with grass and horse-drawn carriages, to reduce climate change. 

Honestly, it’s no wonder councillors can’t agree on anything. Mike Lesiw
