SHORT & SWEET

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - OPINION -

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.
