Commenting on the story: Concerns over ‘privatisation’ plan for child protection service
After seeing how privatisation of aged care, disability care, private security in hotel quarantine, and job-seeking have been raging successes, how idiotic is this idea for our most vulnerable citizens? Keep it public, monitored, and transparent. – David Everett
For goodness sake, protection of children is too important to be given out to the commercial sector.
The Marshal Government should take some initiative and instead of giving us spin, think of the future of our young people. Commercial care doesn’t work, look at the recent quagmire of child protection, look at the privatisation our aged care system, look at the overworked, under-resourced health system etc. – Gordy Rollins
Commenting on the story: Apple and pear growers reject push for GM-free Hills
Why would you make a decision on a particular GM-free crop re apples and pears when, by their own admission, no such GM crop varieties exist at the momen? When they exist in the future we can discuss it then.
As for the wine industry, I see there is no supporting information re what our current and future markets will accept with regard to GM free varieties and the resultant wines. Yes, lets make a decision on GM free and see ourselves get locked out of overseas markets. Clever, not. – Geoff Moore
Commenting on the story: Slowing the sprint towards a cashless society
Yes, it should be slowed. Can you imaging the hardship this would bring to people who struggle to keep on top of their credit cards now?
Eventually you would have no control over your own money and you would be paid an allowance to live.
They should bring back commerce studies at school in order to understand money. – David Broad
