The Weekend Australian - - COMMENTARY -

It ap­pears that ret­ri­bu­tion runs deep in the Turnbull fam­ily (“Don’t vote for Libs: Turnbull’s son”, 12/10). Peter Ar­mitage, Carl­ton, Vic If he’s got vi­able pol­icy al­ter­na­tives to of­fer, he should show some ticker and run for of­fice. Put up or shut up, Alex Turnbull. Mandy Macmil­lan, Sin­gle­ton, NSW Op­po­si­tion Trea­sury spokesman Chris Bowen calls for an in­crease in the su­per guar­an­tee levy from 9.5 per cent to 12 per cent. He is silent on whether the in­crease will be paid by the em­ployer or em­ployee. Given the union in­flu­ence on La­bor pol­icy, busi­ness own­ers should pre­pare them­selves for this im­post. David Crom­melin, Strath­field, NSW Us­man Khawaja’s bril­liant cen­tury against Pak­istan would have war­ranted a stand­ing ovation had there been any spec­ta­tors sit­ting in the sta­dium. Is there re­ally any sense in play­ing Pak­istan at Dubai? Surely it would be best to play in Aus­tralia. Crispin Wal­ters, Chapel Hill, Qld Vir­gin At­lantic is re­port­edly launch­ing a flight to­tally staffed by LGBTI mem­bers. Imag­ine the up­roar if they an­nounced a flight run ex­clu­sively by het­ero­sex­u­als. Jack Son­ne­mann, Lu­cas­ton, Tas How ironic that bil­lion­aire Richard Bran­son (“In­sta­bil­ity hurts cli­mate change fight: Bran­son”, 12/10), who de­rives his wealth from an air­line that dumps vast amounts of global warm­ing par­tic­u­lates and gasses into the at­mos­phere, sees fit to lec­ture the rest of us on cli­mate change. Ian Mastin, Woodgate Beach, Qld For­get about the lentils, Clare Ho­ran (Last Post, 12/10), what about the baked beans? David G. Nankiville, Brighton East, Vic
