Commenting on the story: Suburban high streets drive ahead as CBD struggles

The CBD’s time has come. With the total city stretching for almost 90km north to south and the cost of travel increasing dramatically, it is not surprising people are going to shop more locally. Less travel equals less carbon emissions which has to be a good thing.

The CBD’s supply of eateries has always outstripped demand so in hard times the weaker, less innovative will fail.

Regional centres and good old-fashioned suburban shops and recreation facilities are what Adelaide needs rather than a hyped-up CBD. – David Plumridge AM

Commenting on the story: Cardiologist accuses SA Health of derailing research, planning cuts for QEH

After a week in QEH, as a patient, it was evident to me just how much the government has cut from the public health system, putting patients lives at risk, forcing health workers to ignore duty of care. It’s all about the numbers. – Karen Winning 

Commenting on the opinion piece: Marshall the political outsider whose govt favours insiders

I think this is a very accurate view of the Marshall government at the present time. After 16 years of a deteriorating Labor government always lurching further to the left, I was very pleased when Steven Marshall was elected and I had given considerable money to the party for that purpose.

Since then it has all gone downhill with many political members losing their portfolios due to questionable practices. Land tax on the very citizens who had helped to put them there led to a huge loss of confidence by the aspirational citizens in our community. The party seems Labor-lite and as such does not represent my beliefs. – Rodney Twiss

The communication around land tax reforms was woeful and deceitful. Liberals insisted on passing this unjust measure without listening to the public. It was clear from speaking to Steven Marshall and other MPs that they had no understanding of the concept but continued to back Rob Lucas.

Eighteen months later we are still waiting for our 2020/21 land tax notices because, according to Revenue SA, it is proving to be more complicated than initially thought. This government is becoming increasing elitist and only has regard for big business. – Trish Zollo
