SHORT & SWEET
ADAM: Most people get some sort of welfare, for example, childcare subsidies, aged pension (Peta Credlin: “Hand up not a handout to be squandered”, 8/9). So it will be interesting to see if they start targeting others with drug testing later.
JASON: I’ve never met anyone who hasn’t thought that protecting society is more important than protecting these predators’ freedoms (David Penberthy: “Let grubs like Guider rot forever”, 8/9).
WAYNE: The poor old doctors and nurses and the paramedics will be under the pump again as they clean up the mess (“City’s lockout laws lifted but Cross still no-go zone”, 8/9). The hotels are happy to fill their patrons up with lunatic soup then let them out on the street after they’ve made a quid.
GARRY: What could go wrong, Gladys, except that a few innocent people could be subjected to violence. This is a change of laws that will result in more injury in order to appease business. It wouldn’t happen in building or construction industry, so why is it acceptable in entertainment?
IAN: Great news. It will be great to see the new George St pumping late into the night and people who work late actually being able to grab a drink after work in the city.
