Commenting on the story: SA Govt evicts National Trust from Ayers House, moves Govt tenant in

If what I have read is accurate, I am most disappointed in the actions of our State Government. – Roy Trotman

Why does the government give 31 days’ notice to vacate and then say they can take longer if required? Why would you do that unless you took your cue from Yes Minister.

Another example of duplicity by the Marshall Government. – Michael Corigliano

It sounds like the government is making sensible decisions regarding publicly owned assets. Additional space is needed in The Parade Ground for returned services organisations, the History Trust can logically be accommodated in Ayers House and the National Trust, which is a private community organisation, which has enjoyed considerable and ongoing support from Government through funding and access to Ayers House, needs to find new premises.

While it is understandable that they are disappointed at having to move after 50 years, it would be more productive focus on the opportunities for the future rather than dwelling on the past. Surely there is another heritage building that they can activate for the community. – Nicolette Di Lernia

This seems to be immensely unfair. The National Trust have been good caretakers and given an eviction notice with one month to move is ridiculous.  

Why can’t the History Trust share the venue, there is certainly a lot of room there, perhaps using the area where the restaurant is. Di Motteram

Everyone has heard and knows of The National Trust. Apart from National Trust members, I have not spoken to anyone who has heard of History Trust SA.

They ask me: ‘Who are they? What do they do?’ Doesn’t that speak for itself? Trust Governments to look after their own. – June Hedley

Commenting on the story: The Nathan Buckley I know isn’t the one you think you know

As an Essendon supporter, Nathan Buckley was just below Eddie on the hate list from The Carringbush.

I have heard all the stories and was interested in an alternate, and apparently, educated view. Opposition coaches are always targets and we forget are just humans like the rest if us. They have wives and families that are damaged by the pressures of the role and the relentless media. They are expected to suffer it as ‘part of the job’ without reacting or showing any emotion. Chris Scott is the current target for showing emotion.

On reflection, it would be good to have a beer with Bucks one day when the hype calms down. I might find an ordinary bloke who did extraordinary things. He won’t be lost from football, far too good for that. 

How would the rest of us manage 27 years in the spotlight? – Peter Leo

Great story Kevin. Having known the Buckleys and having watched Nathan’s career with great interest over the years. I have nothing but 100% respect for his football ability, coaching, understanding of the game and the way he communicates and presents himself. I wish him good health and a very happy and successful future. – Michael Stumbles

Great article about a great man in Nathan Buckley. – Bernard Ronchi

Thank you for this, enjoyed the read and watching Bucks over the years. He will always be a champion  in my eyes. – Joanne Rowe
