Commenting on the story: Mandatory vaccination for Adelaide Oval spectators

Double vaxxed and wearing a mask. That’s overkill. Come on South Australia, let’s get on with our lives. – Chris Brougham

Commenting on the story: COVID entry: Students drafted to drive ambulances, triple zero calls to surge

Less than one week before the Marshall regime lets the plague into a virus free state, they are still making up the rules of who can travel into SA, quarantine times are like cross lotto numbers.

What a mortality circus. Why not find the guts Marshall to admit your date is way too premature and postpone the opening? This is one of the most callous and incompetent decisions ever made by an Australian government. Clearly many people in our populations are expendable.

Many families will look back on this holiday season not for love, gifting and get togethers but for illness and, sadly, deaths of their loved ones. – Maria Vouis

Commenting on the story: Unprecedented: Deputy Premier Vickie Chapman loses no confidence motion 

Current KI mayor Pengilly has been vehemently opposed to the pine and gum plantations on the island for decades, but strangely he had next to no influence on council’s strong opposition to the site of Smith Bay for the proposed port.

Twice council was required to provide input to the planning process with council being told their views would carry weight in the final planning decision and twice council voted unanimously against Smith Bay, with Mayor Pengilly having neither discussion input or voting.

How would I know? I was councillor at the time.

There is absolutely no doubt “No” is the right decision. A continuous logging industry of the size resulting would have destroyed so much of the social and environmental fabric of the island. – Graham Walkom

Commenting on the story: Whitmore Square apartments next to go in council selloff

So now the ‘affordable housing’ in Whitmore Square is being sold off by the Adelaide City Council.

When is there ever going to be serious system that delivers long term affordable housing? Not surprising, seeing what the elected members have just done over the Park Lands.

Shame on you, councillors. There isn’t very much evidence of a sense of civic duties or ethics in the way elected member decisions are made in  private. – Iris Iwanicki

Commenting on the Theatre review: Dry

Great show, great acting and great backdrop. – Allen Harris

Commenting on the Theatre review: Eureka Day

I liked the way the play allowed for inclusion of different opinions and open debate, something sadly missing in our media.

The final outcome does not bode well for the exclusive and parallel pathway our society is now embarking on. – Joan Nelson
