Commenting on the story: SA looks to ease Vic border restrictions in ‘coming weeks’

Given the controlled situation in Victoria, the maintaining of a hard border with Victoria is an outrageous overreach of the Emergency powers.

I find it staggering that a Liberal government would seek to control its population in this manner. – Vincent Tremaine

Commenting on the story: Complaint about minister sparks independent inquiry

That is a bit rich from Tom after what he said and did with Renewal SA in 2013, and then there was the famous expletive rant by Labor minister Ian Hunter against Victorian Water Minister Lisa Neville and Acting Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce in November, 2016.

People in glass house shouldn’t throw stones. – Fred Driver

Commenting on the story: Lucas tight-lipped on workers compo changes

Why is this Government so hell-bent on disenfranchising their electorates and doing so by alleging there has been engagement and consultation?

I have voted Liberal for the past 40 years, something which I am embarrassed to share now, but am appalled that they do not listen to those with appropriate issues to raise.

We see it in their poor dealings with the National Trust, Law Society of South Australia, the medical profession and workforce, the environmental and planning groups to name just a few.

 For the Treasurer to say that he is being courageous is bluff, just as he and Return To Work SA saying they have engaged in meaningful and proper consultation over proposed changes is bluff.

For me, I hold strong views that our elected politicians should engage with their electorate and key stakeholders. They have done the opposite, a “quick shut-the door” strategy to not face criticism that so riles sensible people with opinions that need to be heard for good governance.

Being courageous is when you allow others to express their views, you listen, you then consider and balance all appropriate considerations. – Hugh Rischbieth

Commenting on the story: Top BHP miner sweetens the deal for Robern Menz

Polly Waffle. Sure to bring a smile to the buyer. There’s a lot of polly waffle around already, but not with choc. – David Donaldson
