On Eureka flag

The Cairns Post - - VIEWS -

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.
