Commenting on the story: Speirs calls for end to Libs’ ‘Divine Right’ recruitment drive

Is this the same David Speirs who was videotaped last year at a Pentecostal church passionately espousing the recruitment of right wing conservative Christians and the melding of church and state?

If so, he has either had a rapid revision of his seemingly core principles and or has had a conversion of biblical proportions on his way to the ballot box. – Warren Jones

“If I’d known there was a camera on me I might have made more nuanced remarks…”.

These words by new Liberal leader David Speirs concerning his Southland speech remind me of the power of cameras as evidence and the way politicians can be caught out speaking in different tongues to different audiences.

It will be interesting to watch for consistency from Mr Speirs (and all politicians). He said on radio this week that the South Australian Royal Commission  report by Bret Walker is bunkum. Will Mr Speirs repeat that word bunkum in future discussions on the Murray-Darling Basin Authority with informed panels of scientists and farmers? – Julanne Sweeney 

Commenting on the opinion piece: Ali Clarke: The power of doing nothing

Some of us call it “fishing”! Your article explains why people go home happy even if they don’t catch anything.

Fishing has become extremely popular in recent times, probably for the very act of doing nothing. It has little to do with patience but more to do with nothing. Doing “nothing” has become big business. – Jill Kennare
