ISN’T it amazing, if you rearrange the letters in AFL, AFLX, AFLW and JLT, you get ... NRL.

ISN’T the whole idea of a democracy that everyone can have an opinion and speak openly about it? The PC brigade is totally forgetting this. No one dies from being offended.

THE AAT’s bewildering decisions surely must violate its members’ allegiance to this country?

GREG Angelo (YS, 13/3), how many people bought VW diesel vehicles on “the basis that they had low emissions”? I think most buyers look at value, design, performance and comfort.

IN France, Italy, Spain and other European nations, Barnaby Joyce would be the most popular politician. Poor fellow, my country.

I AM a self-funded retiree and have recently retired after 45 years in the workforce. Bill, how about having a fixed pension for all retiring politicians and see how you feel when the rules change? Yes, we do need a fairer tax system but let’s start with the Canberra gang.
I WILL tell my 95-year-old mum that she won’t be able to receive those couple of hundred dollars in annual franking credits because of Labor’s policy. I will also advise her not to stress as she is now considered wealthy.

WE are in our early 80s and started work in the 1950s. With the pension and share dividends, including franking credits, we live on about $50,000 a year. Now we find that Labor plans to take away several thousand dollars on which it has already collected tax, meaning we will have to live on about $45,000 a year. Thank you, Mr Shortfall.
IF Bill Shorten becomes prime minister, I hope the stolen generation payments include descendants of the First Fleet convicts. They were stolen from their country and their families.
HOPE the banking royal commission isn’t too brutal. I don’t want my super to plummet.
