SHORT & SWEET
DENIS: Now we have the discriminatory “female veterans” as opposed to “male veterans” (“Women lead the shake-up at Anzac”, 15/4). Where is the equality in that? Aren’t they all just veterans?
LESLIE: Divided we stand.
VALERIE: Good on Fox for not sinking the boot in when someone is down (“Skipper’s call-up”, 15/4). Very Australian. It is different when some sportspeople are serial offenders and they need to go. But one mistake should not ruin someone’s life.
GARY: Michael Clarke is actually one of the best analysers of the game. I’d rather have him in than Steve Smith.
JM: Mark Latham is a sad, pathetic, desperate individual who needs attention like others need oxygen (Claire Harvey: “Racism a new law for Latham”, 15/4). Best to ignore him.
BETTE: Rude maybe, not racist. Mark Latham would have done the same to a white guy. It’s an obvious play on words.
PAULINE: As far as I’m aware, there’s only one race worth winning and that’s on the first Tuesday in November (“Winx makes it 25 straight wins”, 15/4). History shows only Melbourne Cup winners are remembered.
ASH: To put any doubters to bed, Winx has to run in a big race overseas and be an Australian invader.
RON: Why should gift cards have a expiry date (“PM’s gift card to shoppers”, 15/4)? You give good money for a piece of plastic. The retailer has the cash in the bank earning interest.
BRIAN: Expiry date was ever only daylight robbery. I have no idea how it could have ever been legal.
KAY: Let’s get one thing straight, Malcolm Turnbull did not win the last election, the National Party won it for him (Piers Akerman: “Trio of policies could save Turnbull’s skin”, 15/4). Mr Turnbull is not capable of winning the next election. He appears to be deliberately handing the government over to Labor.
