Commenting on the story: Chapman quits politics within hours of leadership ballot

True Chapman, arrogant to the very end. Don’t worry Vickie about the cost of the by-election, don’t worry about saying you were committed to serving the people of Bragg, don’t worry about the Liberal Party funds put into the campaign, you just go off and enjoy your pension. – Lachlan Miller

Commenting on the story: Great Scot: Speirs takes leadership as Libs seek renewal

Congratulations David Spiers and good riddance Vickie Chapman. Her (perceived) conflict of interest was one reason I didn’t vote for the Libs in the recent State election.

I’m still reeling at the way the ICAC was dumped, so David Spiers would do well to advocate for its reinstatement with stronger independent powers. – Ray Goulter

Centrist, you have to be joking. This guy is as right wing as you can get, as seen by his voting against and obstruction of Voluntary Assisted Dying laws. – Martin Byrne

I am very concerned that David Speirs is the new leader of the Liberals. He has publicly stated that he doesn’t believe there should be a separation of church and state.

I think this is a dangerous belief that suggests a total lack of understanding of our political system. He is proud of his right wing status and will lead the Liberals back to the dark ages. – Carol Vincent

Commenting on the opinion piece: It’s time to talk about menopause in the workplace

I am delighted to read this perfectly toned article on a topic rarely discussed or written about. It is heartwarming to read the advancement of industrial relations provisions in the Australian workplace.

I write as 54-year-old full time working female. Certainly, menopause is not an illness, rather a challenging state of being, one that requires bespoke survival skills at work and home. For me, the past eight years of menopause has been relentless. However, with kind understanding from colleagues, friends and the right medication, I am at near the light at the end of the tunnel.

Widespread education of this topic is much needed. I’d love to see menopause become accepted as common place vernacular much like the once judged topic ‘mental health has become. With workplace provisions to follow.

I look forward to watching the progress in how Australian business supports the future generations of working women who encounter menopause during their careers. – Kirsty Willis

Commenting on the story: Year-long cough, chronic fatigue: SA doctors sound ‘long COVID’ alarm

Thanks for your article highlighting the long-term effects of Covid.

I too am one of those post-Covid sufferers. The problem for many of us living in semi rural areas (although I’m only an hour from Adelaide), is access to a doctor: there is currently a months wait to see my GP. I therefore rang the Covid ‘information line’, who simply said it was ‘normal “and wait and see”.

My concern is the hundreds like myself who obviously have ‘long Covid’ but will never show up in data (hence follow up statistics). Given the sharp rise in cases and shortages in GP care, the true extent of the impact on communities will never be known and therefore planning for future epidemics/ pandemics will be inadequate. – Susan Jacquier
