JT, I think you will find most asylum seekers arrive here with little to no skills so go straight onto welfare. While you’re at it, check the statistics on unemployment rates of asylum seekers. – O1
Southport has lost its soul, no bakery to grab a pie or a burger shop when hungover. Bring back the mall. CBD insanely barren now. – Marshy
Yes Mr Barry C. Gold Coast and most of Australia is boring. So over regulated. Too many do gooders ringing up and complaining about everything. Plenty of little towns out west where you can go and live and sit in your quiet little town and be miserable. They need music and lots of little bars along our coast beaches so we can have fun and be happy. And yes I am an old person.
Prayers and best wishes for Tommy, our lovely Mayor and his family. Positive attitude as always Tom. – Shezz
A poll in NZ result was 70% don’t want Manus Island asylum seekers. Ardern’s offer to Australia to take them is hers not NZ's. Wonder how big her house and bank account is? KJ.
Sinbad you ask ‘what’s a 94 y/o doing behind the wheel’? Then we oldies ask ‘what’s immature teenage rev heads doing behind the wheel?’
GW it’s good you pay tax. Let them live off your tax all 600 of them. I would rather my taxes help pensioners who have paid taxes. What are your thoughts on refugees who have defrauded Centrelink of tens of millions of dollars?
JT, Tess 600 Manus detainees may well have become skilled workers if they came here. But what would we do with the other 30,000 the boat smugglers would have brought? – John Mc Can someone buy Fraser Anning a beer for dumping One Nation and becoming an independent? All of the voting public should do the same as they are a lost cause just like the LNP who are relying on their preferences to win. – Trust Me
No friends? Buy a ute, you will have more friends than you need in no time. – BigDog
Re. Nuclear power station for New England electorate. Barnaby Joyce must be supported by all parties so clean cheap nuclear energy can be generated. Families and businesses will greatly benefit. Family tax rebates could be increased. Let’s all get behind Barnaby’s push for nuclear power. – John
Will the abc ever put up a Xmas tree or decoration in the news room, cant remember ever seeing anything festive
BOM your forecasting leaves a lot to desire. Monday you stated 16C to 24C. But it was 19C to 26C, I understood your new equipment would make it more accurate, but it’s no better than before. – Terry
So they let 8 year olds drive a drag racer at speeds up to 90km/h. Absolute madness!
Can I sue for false representation? I used well known and expensive TV advertised fly spray on a lone fly. Fast knock down … huh? Sprayed enough on the pesky thing over the evening to kill an elephant. Plus my husband but it was still staggering around in the morning. Bring back the trusty fly strips. They were ugly but effective. – Granny Annie
Sarah Hanson-Young you nailed Pauline Hanson big time. – Pitbull
I was wondering, do politicians take courses in how to avoid answering questions. Some are great at it and others not so much. – GT
I am a little confused. Is silly fork-tongued Annastacia in favour of the Adani coal mine going ahead or not?
What kind of conspiracy are we having in Queensland Election this year? Only three candidates on a ballot paper. What happened to all the others?
If the trams are running from Helensvale, why can’t they be put on line for Christmas shopping before Christmas?
What’s happened to our beaches? The pumper has gone the legacy is that the beaches r probably the most dangerous they’ve ever been. Tough summer coming up for the lifeguards. – Concerned
Has anyone tried to swim at the beaches? They're a death trap. Can high paid spokesman justify the expense of the sand pumping folly?
Re Black Swan Lake. The bird life will find another home when the lake is filled in. The environment is always changing either by humans or through natural causes (drought, flood, earthquake etc) and animals move on. The birds probably go to other food source places on a daily basis anyway. I love animals but I have a realistic view.
Ever seen a schoolie high on red frogs, noodles and passion pop? I have. Double bolt your doors. – Fred
When I wake on November 26 I demand every political eyesore be gone from our city. These signs are a blight on the landscape. – Coaster
