Commenting on the story: Property Council pushes Darley to back land tax shakeup

Give us a break!

By far the greatest number of electors own only the property they live in, pay no land tax and are the biggest of all stakeholders in this lop-sided debate.

And since when did the Property Council give a tinkers cuss about Mum and Dad investors?

If they did, they would be screaming opposition to the Rau/Knoll planning reforms which are stripping away the character and value of our many Mum and Dad residential property investments to make way for those being developed by their members. – David Plumridge

I think South Australians have missed the point. 

The truth of the matter is that the previous Labor government sold out South Australian assets in record numbers, leaving the new Liberal government desperately short of a steady income stream.

16  years of unchecked government spending, and increasing their voter base in the public service. 

It doesn’t matter how the Liberal government goes about sourcing revenues, someone will be hurt.  Mike Lesiw

Commenting on the story: SA sub jobs waiting game continues

Yes, it would indeed be wonderful if all those jobs stayed here in SA. Like no other state or territory isn’t SA, simply indulging it what it does best?

Sheer, unadulterated selfish parochialism?

Australia does not begin and end at the borders between SA, WA, NT, Vic and NSW. We are supposed to be a single nation.

Supposedly iconic Australian companies such as Qantas, Telstra, the banks etc have sent their maintenance, call-centres etc. offshore to support employment and the economies of other countries – countries which have no interest in supporting Australia’s serious unemployment rates and it’s failing economic situation.

So long as all that work is carried out in Australia by Australian workers it doesn’t matter a damn where it is done. Robert McCormick
