And fi­nally ...

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Saturday Extra -

Per­haps Adam Mar­shall should fix the traf­fic jams com­ing in and out of Syd­ney Air­port be­fore wor­ry­ing about al­low­ing more planes to land per hour (“Plane and sim­ple”, 13/10). It would just make a bad sit­u­a­tion worse. Let him have a chat with the taxi driv­ers and see how they feel. Cathy Robin­son, Moss Vale The Shoot­ers and Fish­ers Party was a nar­row in­ter­est group that changed its name to Shoot­ers, Fish­ers and Farm­ers sim­ply to draw votes from the Na­tion­als, but I doubt that they have much in­ter­est in farm­ing. Their ad­vo­cacy of firearms train­ing for chil­dren is highly ques­tion­able. Brian Why­brow, Wa­ni­assa, ACT How typ­i­cally hyp­o­crit­i­cal of the loud left. They screamed about the misog­yny of Don­ald Trump yet when one of their own (Har­vey We­in­stein) is ex­posed for sys­tem­at­i­cally sex­u­ally abus­ing women, they stayed silent. Michelle Te­soriero, Bev­erly Hills Turn­bull and co. want us to shut down our air­con­di­tion­ers when elec­tric­ity de­mand is high. Will we see pol­lies switch­ing off the cli­mate con­trols at Par­lia­ment House and gov­ern­ment build­ings at these times? Not a chance — telling lies is hot work. Chris Drury, Eglin­ton No mama, tell me this ain’t hap­pen­ing. The Turn­bull gov­ern­ment plans to pay con­sumers to off­set their us­age of elec­tric­ity this sum­mer ie. air­con­di­tion­ers (“Aussies warm to hot idea”, 13/10). No Sweat Pty Ltd would be a good name for this in­sane buy­back scheme. It’s ut­terly ridicu­lous. David Grif­fiths, Gorokan It is quite clear that Peta Credlin does not suf­fer fools lightly, oth­er­wise she would still be in pol­i­tics. Peter Wil­cox, Blayney It’s is a treat each morn­ing to read The Tele­graph’s let­ters to the ed­i­tor and en­joy the in­sights of other read­ers. Politi­cians and pub­lic ser­vants should make a point of read­ing the let­ters page to get a grasp of what the peo­ple are re­ally think­ing. It’s free ad­vice from peo­ple who care and want to make a dif­fer­ence. Thank you for this ex­cel­lent va­ri­ety of opin­ion from var­i­ous walks of life. John Par­tridge, Manly
