Commenting on the story: What we know today, Wednesday November 18

If testing is so critical to controlling this virus, why are there such long delays?

Aren’t there offers from interstate counterparts to help out?

Get extra qualified people who can do the testing in urgently – airfreight the samples out to interstate labs if our labs can’t handle the load.

But get the testing done quickly. Having to wait seven hours for a test is ridiculous, and a deterrent to people voluntarily coming forward.

All stops must be pulled out now. – Robert Kirk

Commenting on the story: Minister claims credit for ending Centrelink robodebt scheme despite $1.2b class action settlement

I am glad that this occurred and that many people will be having their invalid debts returned to them.

However there are still many of us like myself that have had this occur to them but most likely will be ignored. It came as a great loss to me as I had just separated from my ex whom I was with for nearly 13 years whilst having our four children in tow and trying to start a new life for myself and my children.

I notified Centrelink of this on numerous occasions and due to their ignorance nothing was done. It was a hard fight to try and have this debt returned to me. Despite my efforts and Centrelink’s admission to be at fault I however only had a partially amount of debt taken off of the overall and was never returned the money they took from me. – Stacey Gray

Commenting on the story: Electric car tax might short-circuit in Parliament

Anyone who uses the roads and creates a cost needs to put their hands in their pockets. Otherwise when we’re all using these electric vehicles there will be a massive government deficit.

It seems like a lot of whinging by people who could well afford to pay the tax. – David Rowe
