Cricket chirping for Stars
CONGRATULATIONS to Australia’s golden girls the Southern Stars on their success in defeating England to win the Ashes on British soil for the first time since 2001. What a team of champions. Eric Palm, Gympie VERY interesting but disappointing that the result of the Ashes featuring the wonderful women Aussie cricketers was on page 81 of The Sunday Mail.
When the men’s cricket team were losing at a great rate, they received a great amount of coverage. Are losers more important than winners? Or is it a male/ female thing? Just asking. Connie Winsbury, Golden Beach WITH the famous Spanish “Tomatina” festival using 750 tonnes of tomatoes, perhaps this wasted food could have been better used feeding those people seeking asylum across Europe. Milvio DiBartolomeo, Wellington Point INQUIRIES, inquiries. We have gone from a can-do government to a can’t-do anything government hiding behind a no-do of endless committees and inquiries. Can’t a wellstaffed public service research and inform ministers of policy options? Can we can the no-do inquiry disease? Nola Croucher, Kenmore
