Commenting on the story: Warning that SA youth drug program could breach detainees’ human rights

Drug addiction is an illness, so how is it breaching your human rights to be potentially cured of this scourge? Has the world gone mad? – Hermann Weber

Commenting on Your views, January 12

It appears only views opposing the government’s plans get printed in this left wing publication. – Fred Driver

Agree entirely with Geoff Phillips when he says: Meanwhile in the bowels of the Government press releases is the news that the proposal to build a combined road and rail bypass from Murray Bridge to Mallala has been scrapped because it may have cost $2 billion. This would have allowed double-stacked container trains to travel non-stop between Melbourne and Perth, with a side benefit of removing the screeching of train wheels throughout the Adelaide Hills.

It is a ridiculous argument to can a project which would have had enormous benefits not only for the environment but also for society, when they spend around half that amount to build a 15 km of road as a bypass for Port Wakefield Road/ Expressway.

It couldn’t be that some people made a great deal of money out of these other projects, could it? – Graeme Crook

Commenting on the story: Urrbrae gatehouse demolition push despite millions in ‘contingency’ and heritage funding

Please don’t demolish this iconic spot. – Robyn Hargreaves
