Commenting on the story: No illumination: Council’s ‘bob each way’ on Palestine call

I don’t believe that local government should be involved in any way with making comment or decisions regarding this conflict, or any other conflict or political issue .

Local government is just that – local issues for their local community. Councillors obviously have their personal views but they should be kept out of the council chambers. – Carol Vincent

Hasn’t the Adelaide City Council better matters to discuss than this virtue-signalling nonsense? Local councils should not become involved in international affairs. – David Churchill

The argument made by Annetay Henderson-Sapir is in bad faith. A “dangerous minority” could (and often does) interpret something in a manner with “less pure intentions,” resulting in “unintended consequences.”

Take the example of the Australian flag; some might see it as a symbol of the Australian far right since its ubiquity at the Cronulla Riots and within the Reclaim Australia movement, but it is also commonly seen at sporting events like the recent Women’s World Cup in support of the Matildas.

When a child waves this flag to cheer on their sporting heroes, are they simultaneously showing their support for the far right? – Louis Rankin

Commenting on the story: Dry Creek housing development site ‘will be inundated by 2100’ 

I lived quite happily below sea level for seven years in the Netherlands. There are always engineering solutions.

Not many agencies, and the general public, fully appreciate that after the last major ice age between 14,000 to 8,000 years ago, sea level rose by over 100 metres without the help of mankind. This is a rate of sea level rise greater than the 0.84 metres by 2100 predicted by the IPCC. Why bring climate change into the discussion? – Robin George
