ON MANY THINGS

■ Every driver on TBD ex­cept for me is a speed­ing wanka!

■ So Scott Mor­ri­son wants to put a big bulls­eye tar­get on every sin­gle Aussie’s head by mov­ing the em­bassy to Jerusalem. He want wants to big note him­self by throw­ing all Aussies in harm’s way, all for what? A few bloody po­lit­i­cal votes. I would sug­gest if any

things gonna make him lose the next elec­tion, this will sink his gov­ern­ment like the Ti­tanic. Sean van Boven, Dar­win City

■ I just read that 23,457 peo­ple got mar­ried last year. I don’t want cold face ly­ing & de­nial are one of the same thing. The Vir­ginian

■ Fair dinkum. The Gun­ner

Govt shld not b in charge of a kid­dies’ piggy bank. Sub­si­dis­ing Chi­nese air­line flights was/ is al­ways doomed to fail from start.Re­al­ity: if any­thing is a com­mer­cial ‘goer’ it’ll find com­mer­cial fund­ing. Only duds - done for po­lit­i­cal grand­stand­ing - need pub­lic ‘kick­start’ sub­si­dies poured in (to an in­evitable from start, black hole of - em­bar­rass­ing losses.)

■ On CBD : The mas­sage joints have found a way to save on the rent money, the shops are their ac­com­mo­da­tion aren’t they?

■ Has Dar­win City Coun­cil and NT gov­ern­ment con­sid­ered car­bon trad­ing as an in­come and aid to re­duc­ing heat? Huge green spa­ces of suit­able trees would also at­tract peo­ple and an­i­mal life. JT Anula

■ Global warm­ing is go­ing to stop peo­ple from mov­ing north to hot­ter cli­mates. Why would they? Fed­eral and Ter­ri­tory gov­ern­ments need to heav­ily sub­sidise so­lar power or in­tro­duce an af­ford­able pay­back scheme so the av­er­age per­son can live here with some com­fort.

■ Dong­hai hope­fully will turn the cor­ner. Big op­por­tu­nity.
