On Eureka flag
The Eureka flag deserves to be flown often and everywhere in the country. The Eureka incident was an integral part of our development as a free nation. But it is criminal that the flag has been hijacked by gangs and extreme left and right organisations. Lindsay, Freshwater QTU member Steve Brech believes unions can misappropriate the Eureka Stockade flag because it’s “a symbol of nationalism”. But unions are a symptom of socialism. Nationalism plus socialism became a huge problem in Germany and resulted in World War II. The QTU needs to learn some history. Mic, Cairns colonise Mars is unclear when Mars’ atmosphere is 95 per cent CO2, a gas the left hate with a passion. Too weird. Woz, Parramatta Park Crocodiles are part of the natural environmental attraction along with the Reef and the rainforest for visitors to North Queensland. The hysterical scare beat-up by a politically-motivated minority is falling on deaf ears. Local, Cairns want only electric cars sold after 2030. So how much more coal will need to be burnt to charge all of these millions of cars? Renewable energy sources cannot even power our homes reliably, let alone millions of cars as well. Tell them that they are dreaming. Brian, Redlynch With the flooding, Labor and the Greens are strangely silent on damage to the Reef. George, Watsonville The grass on the sides of the highway and median strips between the Edmonton traffic lights and Robert Rd is up to a metre long. Who is responsible for the upkeep? It’s an utter disgrace and looks absolutely terrible. Great for tourism. Moa Dan, Gordonvale Elaine, El Arish. (CP, 14/3). I couldn’t agree more. I’m sick of hearing about Thurston. It must make the rest of the team’s players feel a bit fed up too. Nora, Earlville It’s actually a shame that Brisbane isn’t getting the cyclone the TV news was freaking out about. It might have evened up the insurance market a bit. Miss T, Tolga The floodwaters have receded and the the Tolga rites have resurfaced. Give us a break please. Wayne, Innisfail Making Bill Shorten Australia’s prime minister at the next federal election would be the nail in the coffin for Australia’s transformation from a democracy to an ineptocracy (Google it). Joanne, Mount Sheridan Watch out. Bill Shorten is coming for your super. It was always going to happen. We have to pay for excessive immigration somehow. Scotty, Gordonvale Hidden health concerns in snags revealed in a study, but I like eating sausages, so choose carefully. Janelle, Woree
HISTORY: The Eureka flag is a proud symbol of an event that was a key part of Australia’s development as a nation.
