Commenting on the story: Radio ratings: Mix extends lead as Ali holds onto breakfast
The reason FIVEaa has lost breakfast is because the radio is crap after midnight, playing music. Used to be better when they had talkback.
So listeners change station at night and when breakfast starts they can’t be bothered to change back to FIVEaa.
The station needs to go back to talkback format, not music. – Frank Garcia
Commenting on the story: ‘Justice denied’ as Aboriginal people left without translators in court
Excellent highlighting of lack of translators, as many agencies forget to ask for interpreters.
Also please make agencies aware that TAFE and UNIS could offer short-term translation courses for the Indigenous students who wish to work in this area. – Anne-Marie Smith
Commenting on the story: Govt defends ‘miserable’ $3.57 a day JobSeeker rise
Yes, I understand the concept of getting people back to work – but try and do that in your sixties.
Too young for the aged pension, and often too old to be given a job. The “don’t fit” age. Thanks for the $3 a day extra, that’ll cover the cost of a loaf of bread … just.
And no, not long-term unemployed, was self-supporting and paying taxes for 40 years, but circumstances changed. – Paul Lockwood
Commenting on the story: The ‘sin’ of simply being yourself
Great article by Simon Royal. – Michele Madigan
So beautifully written, Simon Royal. The 1980s seem a world away now, but we owe it to all our young people to understand what happened then so we can make sure that the fear and judgement of little Eve and many people gay and straight never happens again. I hope we are kinder now. – Julia Grant
Such a wonderful piece by Simon. As with all things that get better, it’s so important to listen to the stories of those who lived through the bad and try to understand what they went through, not only so we don’t let it happen again but so that we truly understand the human impact fear can have. – Taryn Alderdice
This is beautifully written. Some, too many, reacted like medieval plebeians back then and once again, science to the rescue. No, it must not be forgotten. – Helen Ryan
