■ SN, YPN. All the coal we ex­port for elec­tric­ity gen­er­a­tion ac­counts for only ONE per­cent of all global CO2 from coal. Even if we to­tally stuff our econ­omy, it will make NO dif­fer­ence to cli­mate change.

■ MAG­GIE. I am hop­ing The Yes cam­paign is suc­cess­ful to­mor­row and my beau­ti­ful niece Laura and her fi­ance Jen can get mar­ried.

■ BJ, ROCKY. Sick of all the ‘we want a high school for poor Grace­mere’. Well have you asked Cath Ed why they have not built one out there? NO be­cause they say the same as Ed­u­ca­tion Qld, the num­bers don’t add up to spend­ing mil­lions on a school with less then 30% of stu­dents. Re­mem­ber stu­dents at pri­vate school will still go to them fact again sorry it’s the way it is.

■ JEFF, ROCKY. Great to see our ADF tri­al­ing their new tanks re­cently at Shoal­wa­ter Bay. How­ever, as usual it all gets packed up and taken back along the metaphor­i­cal Bruce High­way/Drainage Pipe to the SE oc­to­pus. A per­ma­nent ADF base in CQ is well over­due! This is a com­mit­ment amongst oth­ers that both par­ties need to make as the once great ad­van­tage Qld had, that of de-cen­tral­i­sa­tion, is fad­ing fast.

■ CJB, ROCKY. I am sorry to in­form you KD Walk­er­ston, it is now called a Golden Rain­bow not a Golden Gay­time.

■ CD BERSERKER. Is any one hav­ing trouble with Op­tus Mo­bile cov­er­age in Berserker? My mo­bile can­not re­ceive or make voice calls but drive 200m up to Frenchville and it works. Very frus­trat­ing as I have spent hours on lan­d­line try­ing to re­solve this.

■ BILL TENNENT, COOWONGA. A royal com­mis­sion into the banks? It is my un­der­stand­ing that a Royal Com­mis­sion can only be es­tab­lished by the le­gal power ex­er­cised by the GG act­ing on the ad­vice of gov­ern­ment min­is­ters. It ap­pears there­fore that talk re­volv­ing about the La­bor Party ini­ti­at­ing a vote in the House Of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives to estab­lish a Royal Com­mis­sion is again, so much smoke and mir­rors.

■ ANON. why is there fifo there should plenty lo­cals want­ing work the mine been in the pipe line for some­time train­ing should have started years ago

■ ROCK. tell me this, when rent sky rock­ets where will the low in­come pen­sion­ers live in flam­ing tent on river bank? Greed is cruel, power and cost of liv­ing al­ready hurt­ing some­thing must give

■ CJB, ROCKY. Let me say to any­one who cares to read or lis­ten, Al Byr­nand is a very wise man.

■ A PROUD QUEENS­LAN­DER. Rock It takes two dirty NSW play­ers in World Cup to give all oth­ers in the Aus­tralian team a bad name.

■ GUN­NER. Drugs, crime & vi­o­lence, the law and order crit­i­cal is­sues, all placed in the far too dif­fi­cult bas­ket by all those aspir­ing can­di­dates once again.

■ RAP. If elec­tion can­di­dates are go­ing to be al­lowed to stick their signs up ev­ery­where then they should be made to check them ev­ery day. Some are al­ready knocked over and they just add to the rub­bish on the road side. ■ LBS. Neg­a­tive tv ads about the op­po­si­tion are not go­ing to make me vote for any­one. I want to know what you are go­ing to do if re elected. Get it? ■ MOOSE, DE­POT HILL. To my old mate AB. Just walk up to the gate and walk through it and say “I don’t need to be told how to vote it’s all in my head.” ■ STEPHEN BAR­TON,

AL­TON DOWNS. Re. Mal­colm Wells (13/11) and Po­lit­i­cal Car­toon op­po­site page. Some peo­ple think it is funny to mock the things of God. They should con­sider the whole of His Third Com­mand­ment “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guilt­less that taketh His name in vain”.

■ ARTY, ROCKY. Re­li­gious lead­ers should stick to pas­toral care and not pol­i­tics. The Angli­can priest does not speak for the congregation.

■ AB ROCK­HAMP­TON. I voted on Mon­day, parked out front then had to get past the skir­mish to the front door of the build­ing. I thought this mob had to keep a cer­tain dis­tance from the front door of a build­ing for vot­ing.

■ JS, PARK AV­ENUE.

Projects like the one in Mount Mor­gan that im­pact shops should be ten­dered out to pri­vate com­pa­nies with a cri­te­ria of be­ing com­pleted as soon as pos­si­ble. The coun­cil will not work week­ends will not work RDOs and don’t mind how long the project takes. There is a way to speed up projects.

■ MAG­GIE. How un­real has the Rugby League World Cup been over the past few days.

I couldn’t re­ally get into it ini­tially, it all just seemed like a fore­gone con­clu­sion. Aus­tralia V Le­banon was in­spi­ra­tional. What a tough game. Tonga de­feat­ing de­feat­ing NZL, who’d have thought!

How in­cred­i­ble is the reach for the NRL to ex­pand and cap­i­tal­ize on fu­ture growth. Also, our tal­ented women’s crick­eters and Soc­ceroos con­tinue to ex­ceed all ex­pec­ta­tions. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie OI OI OI

■ DM. Bris­bane to get an en­ter­tain­ment cen­tre at Roma St park­lands worth mil­lions if La­bor win elec­tion. The great SE wins again. Rocky doesn’t have one cen­tre or a sports sta­dium, we have to go to Mackay.
