Commenting on the story: QR codes are for “COVID only”: Stevens rejects Spurrier’s extension call

Where is Stephen Marshall backing Grant Stevens’ comments? The QR code system is for COVID-19 only, and not to monitor the comings and goings of South Australians.

Get rid of the system as soon as it’s safe to do so. – Jacqualine Avery

Watching people entering shops and supermarkets as I go about my daily business, there are huge numbers of people here in Adelaide that simply walk in.

No QR code, no paper sign-in. I have never seen anyone challenged about this behaviour. If contact tracing does become necessary there will be huge flaws in the system.

Having just returned from a trip to Bendigo, I can say that our system is much easier to use than the Victorian one – but at least they use the one that they have. – Robert Duncan

Please tell Nicola Spurrier that I have been prepared to use the QR Code system for every location I enter to deal with COVID, but I will rebel if I have to use it one day more than necessary.

Why? Firstly, if one is on quick errands to several places one has to use the system many times in a short space of time which can be very inconvenient. Secondly, many people do not appear to register by either of the methods so I will then join ASAP. – Matthew Linn

Commenting on the story: Zou SA Libs’ top donor as spotlight falls on party coffers

Whilst it is still legal for anyone, or any organisation, to donate money to political parties there really is nothing anyone can do.

I do not have a problem with individuals giving their money but I do have a very big problem with unions, commercial enterprises such as miners, developers, retailers etc, particularly those commercial entities which are listed on any stock exchange,  being allowed to do so.

Not all union members support the ALP so by what possible right does any union have to donate their member’s money to a cause which the member does not support?

Similarly, not all shareholders support the Liberals, Nationals or ALP, so by what possible right does any commercial organisation have to donate shareholder’s money, to  causes which the shareholder does not support?

It should be remembered that the union dues members pay is, technically, owned by the members and not the union, likewise  any profits a listed company makes are, at least technically, the property of the shareholders and not the directors. – Robert S McCormick

Commenting on the story: ‘Shocking’ public school wait times for educational psychologists

Everyone has to wait long times for a psychologist appointment and especially long for a good one.

There is a pandmic happening which meant school disruptions last year and continuing this year. I wonder what Labor’s policy was when they were in government and did the unions kick up then. Silence? – Fred Driver
