TEXT TALK

Herald Sun - - SATURDAY KNIGHT -

WHY has Daniel An­drews, and his in­com­pe­tent La­bor, al­lowed DP World Aus­tralia to in­crease its con­tainer fees by over 400 per cent? A union sweet­ener? B. Foxwell, Cran­bourne East

GEE, pri­va­tise wharf and fees go up. I’ll bet Dan’s as sur­prised as Jeff was when he sold power, etc. Ab­so­lute ge­nius. Big Brian, Por­tar­ling­ton

HAS Phil Ingamells (Opin­ion, 11/10) seen the high coun­try af­ter a 4WD has been through? The horses and deer don’t make any­where near the mess one of these do. Dave, Yin­nar

I TOO re­mem­ber the Vinelander, Julie Camp­bell (YS, 11/10). For years it al­lowed Mil­dura’s se­nior stu­dents to en­joy a day or two in Mel­bourne ev­ery year vis­it­ing museums, plan­e­tar­ium etc. For many coun­try kids, it was their only trip away for the year. Carol, Seaford

FAREWELL Hendo, and happy re­tire­ment. One of the best news­read­ers in the busi­ness. But ABC, please don’t pro­mote the some­times weath­er­man with the swiv­el­ling voice. Macca, Gee­long

AL­CO­HOL pack­ag­ing should be plain, like cig­a­rette pack­ag­ing is. Lucy, Bal­larat

I’D like to ex­press my sym­pa­thy to the re­porters and crew who reg­u­larly have to lis­ten to Bill Shorten as he drea­rily de­liv­ers his mono­tone and elon­gated press con­fer­ences. It’s a tough gig, guys. Chris, Men­tone

SO Thurs­day was “In­ter­na­tional Day of the Girl”. If the Left has its way, it’ll be­come “In­ter­na­tional Day of the They”. Strewth. JW, North Mel­bourne

KURT Fearn­ley is a wellde­served win­ner of The Don. Put sim­ply, he is Su­per­man in a wheel­chair. How he trekked Kokoda still blows me away. Wood­sey, War­randyte

I THINK Syd­ney is be­gin­ning to re­alise it takes more than money to cre­ate a “Mel­bourne Cup”. Gra­ham B, Narre War­ren South

SURELY the Marsh broth­ers have to get dropped for sec­ond test. Nine­teen runs com­bined in a Test is pa­thetic. Lucky their mate Langer is the coach. Davo, Croy­don

LOTS writ­ten about the pre-draft wheel­ing and deal­ing but lit­tle on St Kilda. Billy Slater may be a nice pick-up on the coach­ing panel but we need new blood on the field. Looks like an­other sea­son dwelling in the cel­lar. Deek­sie, Essendon

I DON’T see why the Bach­e­lor is be­ing bad­gered be­cause nei­ther of the “hon­eys” were sweet enough. Nipped in the rose­bud. Peter, Mt Martha
