Ab­bott only per­son who can save LNP

The Queensland Times - - NEWS | OPINION -

THE Fed­eral LNP is haem­or­rhag­ing under Mal­colm Turn­bull.

Un­less it changes lead­er­ship now there is no hope of their sur­vival; the LNP under Mr Turn­bull can­not win.

Peter Dut­ton, while a good man, is far too green for the in­sur­mount­able job ahead. Julie Bishop was com­pli­ant with throw­ing Tony Ab­bott under the bus.

The LNP’s only hope now is to re­in­state Mr Ab­bott as leader be­cause he is the only man with fire in his belly to drag the Lib­er­als out of the mire that Mr Turn­bull thrust them into.

Get Tony now be­fore all hope is lost. — ROBERT McBEATH Race­view

Plovers are lovers of down­pipes

THOSE amaz­ing plovers; they have moved into our parks and on to sports fields.

We’ve all seen them but some peo­ple have even seen the plovers nest on the roof of the Bras­sall State School Li­brary and get their chicks down to the ground through the rain­wa­ter down­pipes.

Is there any­thing more amaz­ing than that? — BARRY BEETHAM Ip­swich

Up­set over theft of bird eggs

POSSIBILY the most dis­turb­ing and up­set­ting story I’ve read in a long time was the theft of the plover eggs (QT 14/10).

Why? How can peo­ple be so cruel? — JEANETTE COLEBOURNE Booval

There are no grey ar­eas around DV

PAR­TIES are dis­tanc­ing them­selves pref­er­ence-wise from One Na­tion af­ter the state­ment “Good sex should be in the grey area be­tween tickle fight and do­mes­tic vi­o­lence” ap­peared on the Face­book page of the adult store Thuringowa can­di­date Mark Thorn­ton’s owns.

Does Pauline Han­son, who sup­ported Mr Thorn­ton af­ter this state­ment, feel dif­fer­ently? — EL­IZ­A­BETH CURWEN Red­bank Plains

Get­ting sex ed­u­ca­tion right in class­room

OWEN Jac­ques (X-Rated Sex Ed? QT 11/11) ob­vi­ously be­lieves in sex ed­u­ca­tion be­ing taught in schools.

Mr Jac­ques said “our young peo­ple need to know about their bod­ies be­fore they learn about STIs”.

Knowl­edge does form part of the em­pow­er­ment process. An­other part of the process, though, is val­ues.

I would like to know the val­ues be­hind this be­lief of Mr Jac­ques. — SA­MUEL CARROLL Bun­damba
