Commenting on the story: “Selfish, apocalyptic”: PM plans to “outlaw” activist protests

As I recall, similar comments were made by those in authority during the Vietnam Moratorium years.

As history shows they were wrong then, and they are catastrophically wrong now. – John Walsh

And so, sadly, we have finally reached fascism. – Etiennette Fennell

About time. Great idea to name, shame, and strip them of their Centrelink entitlements. 

Better still leave them glued to the road. Or stuck up a tree or public building. It used to be called breaking the law. And you were jailed for it.

Minorities can vote for anybody they like, that’s how it works. Surely there are enough left wing nutters in parliament to keep these people happy?

Or they could move to Russia or China and try the other system, communism. – Terry Griffin

How unsurprising that Scott Morrison wants to crack down on climate protesters.

It will distract from his woefully inadequate policies which continue to produce rising greenhouse gas emissions, and continually high power costs, while a policy review he has established will operate in secret with only handpicked people with a vested interest in ‘business as usual’ involved.

With what we now know about climate risk, it is extreme to be doing very little about it, like Morrison, actually.

Throwing a few folk in prison, keeping the rest of us in the dark, and refusing to rise to the occasion in a crisis are not the hallmarks of a good leader concerned about the public good. Jim Allen

I agree 100 %  with what Scott Morrison is doing.

Put an end to these kinds of demonstrations, which want to disrupt and cause chaos to our capital cities.

As well, stop the vegetarian and vegan demonstrators from trespassing on farmers’ land; its hard enough for them to make a living, and to put up with that is very stressful. Mario Del Medico

Commenting on the opinion piece: Adelaide – it’s time to grow up

Administrative targets concentrate on shoring up the administration itself and actual service provision runs a sorry second.

Project initiatives are based on PR value. Where do you start? – Paul Abram

As a new resident, married into the city and state it’s super frustrating trying to travel south to north for work on a country town road in a city of over a million. 

I’m from Darwin. We’ve got heaps of highways. Perth – highways. Brisbane- highways, tunnels, bridges.

Adelaide – you are not a country town.

Grow up, open your bloody supermarkets Sunday morning. 

Adelaide- you stuffed up and slowed down.  Open up for business and be more welcoming.  

P.S: great place to live. (Can’t wait for driverless cars as you’re terrible at merging.) It’s not your fault, you never had a big boy road to learn on. – Adam Hansen
