Politics or the paranormal, have your say
FROM feedback online about last week’s Pollie Tickled column, to another letter in response to our story on strange and haunted places, Weekend wants to hear from its readers.

Online commenter Uncommonsense4me, of Maryborough, had this to say in response to Michael Burlace’s satirical Pollie Tickled column.
“We need an innovative solution from Turnbull and the (Dual) National Party,” the commenter wrote.
“We have gulag concentration camps full of refugees with no citizenship. We have a load of right whingeing politicians with one citizenship too many.
“The camps are costing us a fortune to run and we can’t back down and let them in because it would trash the reputation of our leader-in-waiting, Dutton!
“Just get the dual national pollies up to Manus and Naru and they can give the spare citizenship away to the poor refugees who are in limbo!”
A final message from mum
I’d just turned 16 when my mother passed away.
About a month later I heard very heavy, very scary breathing on my left side as I lay in bed at night. I thought there was an intruder in the room and even looked under the bed. Then after about 10 days it stopped.
A few months later my best friend said there was a teacup reader she’d heard about in the city, and it’d be fun to hear our future.
We went along and when it came to our turn to go in the cup-reader immediately looked straight at me, held her hand up to get my attention and said, “My dear, I have to tell you, your mother is on your left shoulder.” Tears flowed. I realised she’d been letting me know she hadn’t gone far.
