ONE wonders what the fate would be for anyone in the audience who didn’t jump to their feet and enthusiastically applaud Robert De Niro’s selfindulgent rant about Donald Trump at the NY Radio City Tony Awards ceremony? SINBAD, Hallett Cove. ROBERT De Niro is quick to put Donald Trump down, but I haven’t heard of anything significant that he’s done for the benefit of mankind. JUST RUDE. I TOTALLY support paying the additional 15 per cent on public holidays to ensure hospitality workers are paid appropriately. But to be served microwaved eggs for brunch this Queen’s Birthday holiday at a Henley Beach establishment because “they were so busy” really adds insult to the charge. JB. CHANCELLOR Angela Merkel should be held responsible for the murder of a 14-year-old girl by an Iraqi asylum seeker ( The Advertiser, 12/6/18). This is only a small indication of what the future holds for Germany due to WHETHER it’s rock throwing or torching stolen cars, police need the friends of these crims to dob them in. Such information would solve most crimes. People simply don’t care enough to help the police or victims. TJB.
