Commenting on the story: Liberal veteran sounds land tax alarm as Labor flags backing Bill

My information is that the changes proposed would bring SA in line with the eastern states.

If that is true, the dire predictions of developers fleeing to the eastern states is probably not a great risk. – Ivan Miller

Commenting on the story: ABC to cut more jobs as funding freeze bites

I cannot believe that there are to be more cuts to the ABC staff / journalists.

When will this carve up of our national broadcaster stop? – John Macgowan

Commenting on the story: Hutt St Centre incorrectly blamed for crime: SA Police

I have a somewhat belated comment on the article. 

The Hutt St Traders Association say that the Hutt St Centre is bad for footfall along the street.

And yet, in my mind at least, the association’s persistent and vocal demonisation of the Centre has cemented the street’s image as a place for out-of-touch NIMBYs who have far more money than empathy.

That doesn’t really make me want to spend time in their shops and cafés, so I’m not sure they’re doing themselves any favours with regards to footfall.

I’m a CBD resident currently looking to move; I just looked at a listing for a unit, noticed the nearest retail precinct was Hutt St, and went “ugh”, but not because of the Centre.

Perhaps if I do move there, I’ll match every purchase I make at a Traders Association member with an equivalent donation to the Centre. Leigh Brenecki
