Commenting on the story: “I never wanted to be known for the worst thing that happened to me”

Chelsey Potter – this is a magnificent article, a magnificent and extremely courageous callout and respectful naming.

You will be known for many wonderful things in your life.  

Even if many of us have little hope in many politicians when it comes to general government policies and action for the common good of country and its people, it is still somewhat of a surprise to hear of the failure to stand up for the wellbeing of individual staff in such serious matters.

Protecting the brand is the preferred way. Up till now, at least. – Michele Madigan

Congratulations for having the courage to speak up. Without the bravery of women like you, nothing will change.

The politicians and employers must be held to account, both for their failure to act at the time and for their feigned surprise as the incidents come to light. Jan Edwards

Commenting on the story: Marshall, Spurrier among first to get COVID jab in SA

The Premier jumped the queue of frontline workers, medi-hotel staff and Adelaide Airport staff.

I would have thought he could have waited his turn. – Bob Korbel

Commenting on the story: What we know today, Monday February 22

Interesting read of your article which mentions‘South Australia’s vaccine program is not mandatory, and the federal government has repeatedly said it will not force people to get vaccinated.

This statement is technically correct; the Government is not making it mandatory, they have given employers that privilege instead. I know plenty of people who have been told if they don’t have the jab, they won’t have a job – so most I know will be getting it under duress.

Explain to me how that is not mandatory? – Vicki Jenner

Commenting on the story: New quote to move historic Urrbrae gatehouse

Surely moving the road behind the house has been considered? Two lanes for traffic turning left onto Fullarton Road going south would leave the house on an island, but that could be made to work safely.

The land behind is really of no significance. Seems too simple, so what’s wrong? – Greg Baldock

It’s so typical of Government hypocrisy to name a property or “Heritage Listed” then decide to demolish it in favour of $$$. If it’s convenient they decide to keep it and if it’s more financially viable they knock it down.

If something is Heritage Listed it is there for a reason – it has historical significance.

And if it’s worthy of making the list then it should be respected as such and left alone. It should be preserved for future generations regardless if it would be more expedient to build a bigger road or a larger shopping centre. – Erika Windt

The state government should be congratulated on their demonstration of a sustainable controlled burn. – Mike Lesiw

Let’s hope the Gatehouse saga is drawing to a conclusion. Several key indicators have emerged in the convoluted political machinations around this process.  

The Government must save the Gatehouse: to do otherwise would unleash a major electoral backlash across the community. The Gatehouse is a State Heritage icon and it is the State Government’s responsibility to fund and manage its safe and efficient re-location.

The university’s role is to determine its ultimate site, and to ensure that it becomes a functional component of the Waite Campus. – Warren Jones

Commenting on the opinion piece: Sky News intent on moving Australian politics to the right

As a watcher of Sky News, much of what Mr Muller says is as exaggerated as he purports Sky News to be.

He has as much right to express his opinion about Sky News as they do about him and the Centre for Advancing Journalism. – Peter Hamilton

Am I to take from this article that CNN is without bias? –  Graham Tull

I hope this bloke is right. If people don’t read The Australian or subscribe to Sky and Sky News they don’t really know what is happening in Australia. Ted Schoff

More Murdoch conspiracy theory. Twaddle. Sky in fact is far more balanced than the ABC. In the ABC, a conservative is nowhere to be seen.

Sky News always has both a Labour Party/lefty as well as a Lib (centrist/conservative) on all its panels. And arguments are full on.

Of course the lefties of this world – most journos, and of course Rudd the Great, Master of the Leftyverse, failed candidate for DG of the UN. Dear me, makes me think InDaily is a leftist journal? – Robert Warn
