Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

With the coun­cil go­ing on about our wa­ter short­age who wants to make a bet that they re­duce the amount of wa­ter we are al­lo­cated per year by at least a third or maybe a half to be able to sup­ply all the new sub­di­vi­sions and then they will also make a for­tune in ex­cess charges when you go over ur lower al­lowance.

Don’t see why any­one would be op­posed to mov­ing the union grounds to Mur­ray, it is the sport­ing hub of the city isn’t it?? Jay, 4811

To first Aus­tralian 4818. Just 2 re­mind you, this coun­try is bought and paid 4 with the blood of Aus­tralian sol­diers, black, white, and ev­ery other na­tion­al­ity who was here in the 40s and since who thought it was worth fight­ing for. Get over your­self. True blue 4814

So glad that Ewen Jones has the in­ter­est of vot­ers at heart while his Govt. is ne­go­ti­at­ing a FTA with China. cu­ri­ous though he said “vot­ers” not “work­ers”. and could he tell us if it’s true that his Govt. wants to re­lax writ­ten English re­quire­ments for sec­tion 457 visa work­ers ? CA, 4810.

Re: Ewen Jones bi­ased rant in Sat bully. You need to wake up and what your govt is do­ing by this ridicu­lous FTA. Chi­nese work­ers will be al­lowed by the hun­dreds into our coun­try skills unchecked and take Aus­tralian jobs. So glad to see Ewen Jones sup­port­ing China rather than Aus­tralia - but what else is new. BH4817.

I al­ways en­joy read­ing Jess Steele’s col­umn ev­ery Satur­day and her last piece was the best yet. Fam­ily re­ally are the most im­por­tant peo­ple in our lives and we should tell them so. Hav­ing re­cently lost my lovely Dad Jess brought tears to my eyes this week when nor­mally I have a good laugh. Thank you Jess. God bless. Leo 4817

I know there’s not much on TV, Shari Tagliabue, but that’s no ex­cuse for watch­ing the con­trived pos­tur­ings of tal­ent show hosts, par­tic­u­larly when you know it’s all a fraud! Please, let’s get some de­cent pro­grams on TV, not just mind­less pap and end­less re­peats! It would be nice if we weren’t all treated like vil­lage id­iots. Ags C’jong

If the Storm and Dragons can take a game to New Zealand, surely the Cowboys can take a game to Cairns. Don 4814 To the ALP: if u do not sup­port the ‘ turn back’ the­ory, u may not get back in. Tom, we. Has there ever been an NRL player that gets in­jured more then Steve Matai? Manly would have to have a trainer specif­i­cally as­signed to the man. Give the game up mate. NT, South Tsvl

A whole heap of brick­bats to the ABC, for clos­ing all its shops, Oz wide. These shops were al­ways well pa­tron­ized. It was easy to just walk in, and pick out what you wanted, they had a great range of DVD’s and books for all tastes, and age groups, but now the ABC ex­ecs have de­cided they were too un­prof­itable to keep open, in their present form, no­body thought of ask­ing us, the gen­eral public, all very well to say, buy on line, but not ev­ery­one has ac­cess to com­put­ers and smart phones.

Read­ing in the pa­per that the Po­lice ar­rested 18 for drug of­fences. Po­lice stated that these al­leged drug­gies were to quote. ‘ Tak­ing a foothold and that is why they acted’. Does this mean that the Po­lice only act if you be­come greedy. What about low key drug­gies and all the other such grubs around town. This means to me that if I am a low key dealer not com­ing to the at­ten­tion of po­lice I might be left alone. Wrong state­ment by Det I think. Bill Idagi. 4815

Hagar sat 25/ 7 gave me the best laugh for ages. WW C/ jong.

Cowboys, stop whing­ing about Mon­day night footy & low crowd num­bers. If you played Tville’s big­gest school footy fi­nal at 5pm in­stead of 3pm, Kir­wan & Iggy would get another cou­ple thou­sand to the game as fam­ily, friends & stu­dents of both schools could make the game af­ter work & school. Un­happy par­ent. An­nan­dale
