Commenting on the story: Lifting SA crowd caps will depend on vaccination rates

The Transition Committee keep on making up new excuses for not lifting the caps on pubs, clubs and restaurants.

First it was the QR coding and now it’s vaccination. The vaccination will take months due to the Federal Government backing the wrong vaccine.

No other industry has had to tolerate this, and we can go on packed buses and into full football stadiums. The hospitality industry is being discriminated against by an unelected group of people who have never run a business. I suggest the industry take legal action. – John Lewis

Doing the right thing?  That would have been getting hundreds of thousands of vaccines into arms. 

Why hasn’t this been done as a matter of great importance? Deflecting by fining people for not registering attendance at a business, despite nobody in the general community having Covid. Important if Covid gets out, but vaccines to everybody is crucial. – Graham Bartlett

Commenting on the story: Grant millions for city cycling back on track after bikeway scrapped

Well, that’s something at least. But what we really need is a serious investment in cycling infrastructure across the whole Adelaide plains.

Try $1 billion over ten years. We could utterly transform patterns of human mobility and associated wellbeing across the whole of greater Adelaide if we only only dared to imagine. We are just as flat as Copenhagen, with much more cycle-friendly weather.

We can do this. We can afford it. Lets just pause the insane roads and car growth for a while, and chart a new, safer, healthier and sustainable course. – Peter Martin

Commenting on the story: ‘Secret’ plans to ax doctors, nurses from Adelaide hospitals: clinicians

How about we cut the Staff at SA Health by half, and keep the doctors and nurses. How many millions per year would we save? 

How many of the boffins at SA Health have ever worked at the coal face in a hospital? 

Top-heavy health system, but very sparse on the hospital floor. – Margaret Spencer

When I worked as a child protection social worker, friends would sometimes ask me what it was like working under the existing government.

My response became something like: “Much worse than the last government, not nearly as bad as the next.”

Similar could be said about SA’s health services. – Adrian Watkins
