Commenting on the story: Aboriginal Children’s Commissioner finally set to be granted powers

This should have been enacted two years ago. Not good enough and shows the government were only making a token appointment with no capacity to address change.

Black lives matter, Premier! – David Furniss

Commenting on the story: China tariffs to squeeze jobs, production in leading SA wine regions

In addition, the State Government cancelling the Onkaparinga Council request (and others) to remain Genetically Modified Organisms free, which also has the potential to significantly reduce the exports to non-GMO preferred markets such as Japan and Europe, suggested to be several hundred million in potential losses.

Also I hope there is some assistance from the state government in particular for the industry to develop new markets quickly, as that particular decision has been the state government’s choice to allow GMO, which seems to show disregard for all other interested parties other than wherever the push for allowance for GM canola is coming from. – Nathan Tichy

Commenting on the story: Morrison Govt MP slams ‘harmful and unhelpful’ cashless Centrelink welfare card

Why is Scott Morrison trying to control this? He can’t even control his own party. Not everyone does wrong, but we survive on what we have.

What about stop giving the government more pay rises, and help the poor, the homeless and unfortunate. The rich get richer and the poor and homeless don’t have a picture for the future. – Graham Beattie.

Commenting on the story: Methane-busting seaweed farms on track for 2021 production

Fabulous news! Well done all involved. – Alison James

Wow – this is good news. Jan Faerber

Commenting on the story: What we know today, Thursday December 3

It is clear that the CCP wants the Chinese people to know that the Prime Minister of Australia has received a slap. WeChat does not usually leave a post to let people know a post has been removed, they just censor out of hand.

When Xi Jinping announced that he would be President for life, WeChat was very busy for a couple of days with people questioning the legality of the move, and then all reference just disappeared. I don’t think that means the people of China stopped thinking about it; they just were blocked from expressing their views.

The CCP might think they are winning the public relations war with Australia, but they seem to have forgotten that every other country with a free press is aghast at their current undiplomatic and punitive behaviour. China has been damaged more than Australia has. We are not the only country that is questioning the security of trading with a regime that is so capricious. – Patricia Chigwidden
