My greatest hope before I die is that fellow Queensland­ers see you politician­s for what you are at the next election. BIG MIKE TOWNSVILLE

So the police are not allowed to do their job, Mr harper how do think the crime problem will be solved. It appears the car thieves are running the town and you and your mob are protecting them. How about protecting us who pay your wage? If you can’t handle the job, resign. MARTYMTLOU­ISA

Well another night of terror on the streets of Townsville, cop cars again rammed, a copper taken to hospital after a rock thrown through the cop car window.

Aaron Harper MP in your letter Tsv Bulletin 08/09 you state “This is a sad reflection of these MPS in North Queensland who are not listening to their constituen­ts.” Is this some kind of self reflection or just your standard level of hypocrisy? Block away my boy, block away! CM WEST END

It’s not that hard to understand. JASE AVALE
