Malcolm has a loose 1 billion to throw at the M1. Today he found another 5 billion to build a train line from Melbourne Airport to the City. Where's all this money suddenly coming from Mal, couldn't be you're under the gun at the moment, could it? GT
A gold medal to Peter Beattie and the Comm Games Muppets for the scare campaign driving locals away from the games. Thanks for the signage up and down the motorway - stay away, keep away, send your staff on holidays they have driven locals and tourists away - my business turnover is the worst I’ve seen in 30 years. Jack, Southport
Sydney/Melb centric Turnbull, can find 5 billion to construct a rail line to the Melb airport, but can’t find a lousy 1 billion to fund the 10 klm GC missing rail link, from Varsity lakes to the GC airport.
Where can I get a Borobi? Many merchandising outlets have sold out. Are they going to order more stock?
The only things that Bill Shorten didn’t explain was where he hid his halo and how he is going to cook his magic pudding.
20,000 more government jobs in its first term of office You voted for a big bloated Labour State and now we're all going to pay for it. Don
GOLDOC before you start beating your chest over the best games ever just remember you chased half the town out of town and sent the ones left behind broke
The carbon footprint of the average cruise ship tourist, is about 5% of that of tourists who come by air ... and tourists who come by car. Now .. i wonder why all those supposedly intelligent, ‘know-all’ anti CST spit greenies, didn’t tell u that?
All this talk of M1 upgrades to Varsity Lakes to Tugun and Eight Mile Plains to Daisy Hill. What about the nightmare stretch from Coomera to Nerang plus all the off ramps?
Angelo Biggera Waters - obviously u don't live in the lower end of the Coast on daily gridlock we need the upgrade to M1. Your dribble about cheaper electricity giving families more time is just a fairytale! Sue, Currumbin
The Indigenous activist Wayne Wharton is quoted as saying “I guess we’re lucky a lot of old racist dinosaurs are slowly dying off”. To describe the death of anyone as a lucky thing is disgraceful and disrespectful. Especially if these
Many more hundreds of millions of people around the world, have now become even more familiar with our very distinct GC skyline with it’s luring beach frontage ... and rightly so.
people fought for Mr Wharton’s right to protest. Replace racism with ageism and that's OK??
If every public transport traveller had been charged $1 a trip !!!! Gee there would have been heaps of money in the coffers!!! Opportunity lost.
So the manufacturers of the flu vaccine have decided to leave out the Brisbane strain. That should make it easier to fill out the autopsy reports . Roy, Burleigh Waters
Re. Over 65 flu shot. Bonus first government to reduce age pension liability going forward. Let’s start a pool in how many will not survive this year’s outbreak and the savings to the budget. Mary, Surfers Paradise

We showed off our ghost town to the world. 1982 games it wasn’t. - Larry
Facebook’s Zuckerberg is also blaming Russia for his greediness. What would the Americans do without Russia? They should have a good look at their own operations since WW2 ...
Does the bureaucrat who scared residents of the GC about traffic during the Comm games have business interests in tourism NSW and bicycle shops? They both did well. John Palm Beach
Enough of the Queensland advert about the jumping whales. Loved it the first couple of times, acting was genuine, scenes were great but now I'm over the repetition. GT
Israel Folau’s comments cannot be justified as ‘freedom of speech’. They were homophobic, and ‘hate speech’. As such they should be condemned. Col H.
I just loooove positive people. Yes, new roads and new sporting venues are great but believe me this city is doomed without efficient public transport! We are 200 years behind and counting...
Suggestion for the M1 crisis. Go to Bangkok & copy their motorways on stilts. No need to widen the M1 & buy land. Just go up in the Air.. simple... Commonsense Al
The cartoon artist for The Bulletin gives me a good laugh every day, most of the chatroom a misery. d, nerang
Tom. Your text on Friday made my day. Funny as. Kl
So “Mr Architect”, of the Games athletes village, where are all these ‘new’ residents the Gold Coast are expecting, as it “forges its own identity”, going to find employment? We have too many on the dole already.
