Commenting on the story: Knoll, Lucas at odds over Service SA centres closure

More insanity from the Libs, who I voted for.

Go to the shopping centre where the Prospect branch is and there are people lined up outside the door!

The local shops survive off these people. How ignorant can these politicians be?

Get in the real world. Telstra has displayed that no service is doom. Now we have the public service doing the very same. – John Lewis

Commenting on the story: Council call for 24/7 park lands booze ban “unworkable”: Govt

What about the south-west community and local residents who enjoy a day in the park with friends? 

Why should we have that taken away from us? We pay our council rates.

Why are our rights taken away as a result of the authorities not knowing how to manage a much bigger problem?

Do you honestly think that the main offenders are going to be deterred by the risk of what? Being fined?

It will be the genuine family groups who are affected the most. What an absolutely ridiculous decision, you should all be ashamed. – Kerry Zivkovic

Commenting on the story: Kimba firms as nuclear dump site after Hawker ruled out

Just as we realise our planet is suffocating in our own waste and filth, along comes another politician wanting to further degrade our nation.

In an effort to understand the magnitude of dangerous waste, here are a few stats from the International Energy Agency (IEA) which expects a wave of nuclear reactor retirements from here out to 2050.

The IEA reports that as of September 2019 there are: 94 nuclear reactors abandoned construction, 46 nuclear reactors under construction, 415 nuclear reactors in operation, 28 nuclear reactors in a long-term outage and 183 nuclear reactors in a permanent shutdown mode.

So there are untold tonnes of this dangerous and lethal waste that the minister wants to store in our backyard.

It will never be safe. Perhaps it can be stored where he lives.Roy Ramage
