Commenting on the story: Revealed: How COVID-19 has hit SA’s spending habits

I read with interest the article on spending habits due to Covid 19 as analysed by the ANZ Bank.

The reason for the increase can be put down to panic buying, but the underlying factor is price.

Supermarket prices have steadily increased in the last month, with some items doubling in price.

Fruit and vegetable prices have increased substantially, but i wonder if the growers are seeing any benefit? – Ted Jaeger

Commenting on the story: Unley Council prompts union concerns over coronavirus staffing

Surely there is no reason to force leave?

It’s not as if local councils are suddenly not getting retail sales, or funds have been cut.

Rates have already been paid and I’m pretty sure that they will be sending out next year’s rates in due course regardless.

Libraries, galleries, etc are often understaffed trying to work behind the scenes while also serving customers, I’m sure that there would be plenty of catch-up work.

You never know, they could even take the opportunity to get ahead in planning and programming, and reorganising so that work was more efficient in the future. – Melina Healey

Commenting on the story: $50m luxury hotel to become “Sydney Opera House” of Barossa

This is an eyesore – find a better architect.

Repeating the mantra ‘this is the new Sydney Opera House’ doesn’t make it so. Josephine Shearer
