Re: not born here ... you are a tourist. I am sick of people like you (LNP voters) who move here for a better life and then want to chop every thing down, dig every thing up and put a building there. How will a cable car ride help people drive up and down Springbrook?
I saw a 20-something woman who looked like she went 10 rounds with Cassius Clay she had so much botox in her face. Why?
There are almost always unacceptable waiting times at the two sole Maccas and Hungry Jacks at Surfers Paradise .... and a couple more of these highly popular affordable food outlets, would surely be welcome, especially for the young budget tourism market.
I have travelled the M1 from Helensvale to Coolangatta at least three times a week for the past 15 years and I am warning all vested interests that it, along with its commuters, is about to implode! It’s your nightmare to fix Annastacia. What is your fast- tracked solution?
Political correctness is an insult to average, sensible funloving Aussies. Only weak, misguided minority groups with baseless fears push ridiculous rules down our throats. PC should stand for puny citizens.
It’s about time people realise that being good or excellent at something doesn’t make you a good human, role model. It’s just a bonus if you are. Lookout.
How long does it take for our Feds to wake up that our youth is screaming out for National Service Training?
Who is the person that makes these rules? Volunteers using gender-neutral terms, kids can’t say Jesus, no Xmas carols blah blah. Who are they? I’d like to meet these people. And have a little chat. Why are they so elusive. Who is doing it?
Remember When (GCB 8/1/18). Yes I remember when we were scarce of doctors. Then the wonderful Dr Tom Challenger started up the after hour surgeries and emergency departments coast wide. Many are now in practices all around the coast including my own wonderful doctor. A service that has helped many in distress in the middle of the night.
To gauge how “sexist” Australia is as a country ..... we have a “minister for women” not for “gender equality”, just for women.
For those who think Oprah for US President your mind is very much clouded. Plus where are
all these women voices when it comes to their counterparts suffering in places like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Burma etc? Doug.
Could we please have more articles like the one about Allambe Memorial Park? Very well written, very enlightening and very local. Let’s have more about regular local people, their jobs behind the scenes. Not local sports, celebrities, politicians, wannabes, intsafames. Just local people, doing regular or irregular jobs here on the Coast. Thanks.
Re: gender neutral games. I can solve it. And the pay gap. Simple. Everyone competes in an open field. Men, women and the rest. We’ll see the best in the finals and the winner gets the trophy. Now, that’s equality.
Want an insight into how our Politically Correct world will look like in the near future? Watch the 1993 movie Demolition Man with Wesley Snipes and Sylvester Stallone. kamora.
The Commonwealth Games “joke book” is now not to be followed. Ok to say mates, g’day etc! Who on earth allowed this to be published in the first place? And at what cost? Bloody Americanisms! Struth.
Grandpa John, I must agree with you about the shocking numbers of children locked in cars, drowning in pools, getting sunburnt, emergency admissions, the list goes on. Surely, with all the “bells and whistles”, required by law, for everyone else allowed around their precious children, you’d think a basic IQ test wouldn’t be a bad idea before pregnancy is allowed? Long overdue, I’d say. Queenie
Stevo, if you want daylight saving go south. Now that’s got to be cheaper than a vote. Bye. Mick.
Tennis Australia, stop wasting your time on Tomic, give another kid a crack, one with respect for themselves and their country. TomAtor.
One of the main reasons they changed the name from global warming to climate change was because people incorrectly thought the only consequence was warmer weather. Whereas, it actually means extremes of climate - hotter summers, colder winters, worse droughts, worse floods etc. So anyone who says “it’s never be so cold” obviously hasn’t even looked at the affirmative side of the argument.
Mary Cassar’s letter regarding parking restrictions, unfortunately these instances are not uncommon. I needed to get to the University hospital for an appointment, and was advised to drive to Pacific Fair, park there, then catch the tram. As the distance is about the same from my home to Pacific Fair or the hospital, I chose to drive to the hospital and park there. Ridiculous!
Hey Barmy Army ... you are not singing now.
