On state elec­tion

The po­lit­i­cal cash splash buy­ing gullible vot­ers is like throw­ing bur­ley in the sea, they do it ev­ery time. Judge them on per­for­mance not prom­ises be­cause your grand­chil­dren will be the work­ers pay­ing down the debt, if they can get a job. Brian, Ku­randa

If there is a God and One Na­tion gets the bal­ance of power we are cer­tainly go­ing to need his or her help. Icarus, Atherton

Most Queens­lan­ders haven’t a clue who they are vot­ing for ... just a road­side mugshot and mickey mouse slo­gans. 2Tall Jones, Cairns City

On climb­ing Uluru

Paul, Cairns (10/11). In­dige­nous law was dif­fer­ent for ev­ery no­madic mob. Ex­ist­ing mobs are no longer no­madic, but I’d be cu­ri­ous to see a list of ex­ist­ing in­dige­nous laws. There never was and still isn’t a law re­gard­ing climb­ing the Rock. If you know of one, let us all know. There are cul­tural and sa­cred is­sues re­gard­ing lo­ca­tions around the base which should be re­spected. Ivan, Gor­don­vale

Ju­lian Tom­lin­son (9/11). Straight talk­ing. Again you said what 80 per cent of us dare to say. We need you in pol­i­tics. Don, Ear­lville We should be able to climb Ay­ers Rock cause we are all Aus­tralians. Janelle, Woree

On other mat­ters

Pitt, what a croc. (CP, 9/11). We had no croc at­tacks prior to their re­lo­ca­tion by Na­tional Parks and Wildlife Ser­vice. An­other $5.8 mil­lion sur­vey, what a waste. Dotch, Port­smith

How many ex-prime min­is­ters and ex-mem­bers of par­lia­ment are re­ceiv­ing pen­sions, even gold cards when they were dual cit­i­zens? Renu­mer­a­tion while be­ing an il­le­gal member of the Aus­tralian Par­lia­ment (as per the Con­sti­tu­tion). This needs to be stopped and money re­paid. Will this ever hap­pen? Viv, Ear­lville

Re: Sheri­dan St ute fire. Why couldn’t that car be dragged into the side street and open the road. Five hours to clear a non-fatal ac­ci­dent is be­yond ridicu­lous. Late for work, Cairns

Strongly dis­agree Josip Cri­jen (let­ters, 9/11). A Mel­bourne Cup pub­lic hol­i­day would rob work­places of the col­le­giate at­mos­phere and kill the shared vibe. Ter­ri­ble idea. Miss T, Tolga

If, as sug­gested the La­bor and Lib­eral Party are in­dis­tin­guish­able, why not join to­gether and be­come known as the Short­bull or the Bull­short Par­ties. Ron, Ma­landa

$9.5 mil­lion for re­hab cen­tre for drug abuse will not solve the prob­lem. We need re­sources to catch the ones sell­ing the drugs and how do these kids get the money to buy the drugs. John, Gor­don­vale

Again. When are the one’s re­spon­si­ble go­ing to stop these rude, ar­ro­gant peo­ple smok­ing at bus stops. Fair dinkum, we are sick of it. Greg, Cairns

Pic­ture: ISTOCK

BUTT IT OUT: One tex­ter is fed up with peo­ple smok­ing at bus stops and wants some­one to po­lice this is­sue.
