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

Neil Hod­gins, Mor­well

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.

Snicks, Malvern East

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

Gary, Glad­stone Park

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.

Kevin Col­drey, Frankston

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

Mario, Light­ning Ridge, NSW

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.

Fred, Pre­ston

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.

Ray, Wan­tirna South

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.

Bob, Li­ly­dale

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.

Ray, Rosanna

HOPE the bank­ing royal com­mis­sion isn’t too bru­tal. I don’t want my su­per to plum­met.

Chris, West­mead­ows
