Commenting on the opinion piece: Exactly how SA’s politicians have protected themselves from ICAC

Watering down ICAC impacts all citizens and the total fabric of our political governance in South Australia. We should be outraged. But I watch eyes glaze over when I try to explain the ramifications of what the political class dished up last week. Thanks for the analysis. – Cathy Beitz

Unfortunately we, the voters, don’t get to see this preoccupation with self-interest before we vote them in. Our opportunity to change our representatives comes next year, if only we could be sure any other candidate would be different. – Anthony Curtis

If ICAC was adequately funded in the first place to adequately resource investigations, then matters would not have been drawn out? – Steven Harrison

George Orwell’s Animal Farm published 75 years ago is very to the point here. In the story, the pigs at Manor Farm took charge and decreed that “All animals are equal but some are more equal than others”. – Michael Whitrow

Commenting on the story: Council calls for halt to $20m Old Belair Rd junction upgrade and Your views Thursday September 30

The solution to the Old Belair Road – James Road intersection is to make the whole block one way. Cars going up the hill could all go up James Road and across to Belair/Blackwood via Sheoak Road; cars coming down from Belair or the park area could be denied access to James Road and come down only via Old Belair Road.

There would be grumbles but there are precedents. Anyone navigating the CBDs of Hobart or Sydney will have experienced minor diversions similar to this in length which are well accepted in those states. – Peter Whitehouse

Commenting on the story: Rolls-Royce cars to be all-electric by 2030

Rolls-Royce’s announcement is the latest in commitments made by carmakers around the world. They join the likes of Audi, BAIC, Bentley, Changan, Daimler, Ferrari, Fiat, Ford, Genesis, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Kia, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Lotus, Mercedes, Mini, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Toyota, Vauxhall, Volkswagen and Volvo that have committed to a majority or total electric platform from 2030-40.

Chances are that the next car that Australian consumers will buy will be partially or fully electric. Roll over Scott Morrison, electric vehicles are here, and there’ll be a lot more soon. – Jasper Lee
