Commenting on the story: SA businesses warned not to discriminate against people with mask exemptions

What needs to be acknowledged in these circumstances is the grey area of confidentiality. Working in retail where surgical masks are provided for those who haven’t brought one with them, we’re obliged to remind patrons to take one.

I’ve been told by people they have exemptions, but when I ask politely to see evidence of that they say they’d rather not show me for confidentiality reasons. So then what happens? Are they wanting to retain their privacy or are they just blatantly lying? In most instances likely the latter, but we’re powerless to stop it and the business is at risk of being fined should SAPOL walk through the door.

Exemptions for wearing masks are all well and good, but businesses should be able to refuse entry should they not produce the evidence. People who have an exemption have no right to complain if it’s the case they’re not cooperating. – Katina Vanopoulos

Commenting on the story: Former subs boss blasts ‘hocus pocus’ nuclear deal

All the negs and anti-nuclear experts immediately throwing up their obstacles. Nuclear propulsion is the only sensible way forward for the submarine program; without it they are a very expensive white elephant. – Paul Venables

Commenting on the story: ‘Unprecedented’: Adelaide house prices continue rapid climb

As a friend said: “The party that makes interest on a first home loan tax-deductible, up to $1m value and subject to income limits, will win the election.”

This policy, with limits on new investors to one investment property, would level the playing field for locked-out home seekers. – John Greenshields
