In­ter­est­ing to note all the money An­nasta­cia Palaszczuk’s La­bor Gov­ern­ment has given is all union jobs.

Can any­body who gets big bucks for pro­mot­ing tourism on the Gold Coast ex­plain what hap­pened to all the Ja­panese hon­ey­moon cou­ples and Mid­dle Eastern tourists that were here in the 90s? Bet­ter hope the Chi­nese don't dis­ap­pear as well. G.B.

To no-name, diesel al­ways was dearer than ULP, why any­one owns a diesel pow­ered car is be­yond me when the spit out ten times the pol­lu­tion petrol cars do, why aren’t the dopey gree­nies try­ing to get rid of diesel cars like they are do­ing in the UK and Europe in­stead of try­ing to close down our coal mines? Ben, an un­em­ployed miner vic­tim.

Park­ing at any train sta­tion is hope­less un­less you are there at 6am. We need high-rise park­ing. I know more peo­ple would use the train and re­tirees would spend the day in Bris­bane more of­ten. DL

Such a won­der­ful cruise ship mas­ter plan in Wed­nes­day’s Bully. Dump the Nimbys and bring this wildly at­trac­tive and ver­sa­tile project to life. Would greatly add to the Gold Coast’s rep­u­ta­tion as a beau­ti­ful tourist-ori­en­tated city.

I have lived on the GC for over 50 years and I re­mem­ber the same com­ments be­ing made years ago about tourism and devel­op­ment. Can’t we leave the Spit and Spring­brook NP for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions?

I am im­mensely im­pressed with the Break­wa­ter Group’s lat­est pro­posal for GC Cruise Ship Ter­mi­nal. So much so, that this is­sue alone will now be­come my fo­cus, as to who I vote for (sup­port­ing this) 0 next QLD State and GCCC elec­tions. The com­plete pro­posal does of­fer so much more to fix the whole area and pro­vide bet­ter in­fra­struc­ture and ameni­ties for the com­mu­nity and vis­i­tors alike. … B.O.

Just be­cause Tourist Tom won an elec­tion doesn't give him the right to de­stroy the GC en­vi­ron­ment.

To the per­son/s (or lo­cal gov­ern­ment body) that stole the swan eggs, de­stroyed abo­rig­i­nal his­tory and be­headed a bird last night at Black Swan Lake, you can let me know who you are through here. I’ll be more than happy to show you the er­ror of your ways! Ab­so­lute scum! John

Will light rail go into the air­port ter­mi­nal? If not then no

one is go­ing to drag their suit­cases all the way to the high­way to catch the tram. Light rail should be for the peo­ple who live here. Send it to Robina and Har­bour town. Red­neck ARE the po­lice train­ing their dogs with the Schuntzen method, that is to at­tack the groin rather than the arm or leg? It cer­tainly seems like the dog squad now have what can only be de­scribed as ball­tear­ers. Trust me

Robert S Buick - your ar­ti­cle (GCB 13/6) was bril­liant. Old school logic is sadly miss­ing these days. Ja­yar Palmy.

Such a shame about Surfers Par­adise lately ... not fam­ily friendly any­more. Should be re­named Sleazy Par­adise. Burleigh girl

Saw pic­tures of pro­posed CST. Love it, build it. Lo­cal non Greeny.

Prop­erty value drop con­ta­gion has al­ready be­gun in Syd­ney and Mel­bourne and is spread­ing na­tion­ally. And un­em­ploy­ment, in­fla­tion and in­ter­est rates have not even risen yet. Won­der­ful. - Lisa

About My Kitchen Rules send­ing you deaf. My re­mote has a mute but­ton that I use of­ten.

It’s Kim Jung Un that should be praised not Amer­ica or Trump, but the lit­tle Un, it’s very brave of him and the rest of North Korea. Imag­ine the hope the peo­ple have now for a bet­ter fu­ture. Once this is sorted at­ten­tion will be drawn back to mid east and Iran.

Can’t be­lieve some low life would steal my grand­sons prized pos­ses­sion, his scooter. It was in my daugh­ter’s back yard, which can’t be seen from the front yard. Paddy.

Dive tourism re­searcher. Per­haps more re­search should be done by you on spend­ing while in port by tourists. We are avid cruisers and by far ships dock for full days and all food and en­ter­tain­ment is bought by tourists in the port. If it wasn’t lu­cra­tive then ports would not be­gin to en­ter­tain this in­dus­try.

So the coun­cil has put biodegrad­able poo bags in parks. So I won­der why hasn’t Coles & Wool­worths done the same with biodegrad­able bags? No they just want cus­tomers to pay for thicker plas­tic bags 15 cents, but it’s just the same, they are not biodegrad­able. Sue, Cur­rumbin

Steven Jamieson will de­servedly cop plenty of crit­i­cism for his views on light rail to Burleigh (Tram raid ab­so­lute rub­bish GCB 14/6). He lives in Robina. Won’t use it, won’t be im­pacted.
