Commenting on the story: SA’s ‘worst grain road’ to be fixed under safety upgrades

Why not use the existing railways that were laid for that purpose anyway?

The current rail operator may have to do some overdue maintenance. – George Hobbs

Commenting on Your views and the story: Antic declares left wing “pandemic as SA Liberals’ shift to right confirmed

It’s amusing to see people so singularly focused on culture wars and the idea of “woke.”

Sure, Senator Antic might ‘… take the party away from the woke, virtue-signalling “progressives”…’ (presumably Ms Higgins means the adherents of Classical liberalism who have been crucial to the Liberal Party’s electoral success since its foundation) but judging by his State Council speech, he offers little more than the same tedious grievance politics of the past decade.

Thankfully, most Australians have more pressing concerns than glib culture wars and “wokeness” when casting their ballots. – Louis Rankin

I’m not surprised by Antic’s antics. It’s straight out of the US Republican handbook.

Don’t conservatives have any fresh ideas? My bet is abortion or voter fraud will be his next big issue. – John Clayton

Commenting on the opinion piece: The kids are alright, so give them a vote

This is such a bad idea. Let the young have their idyllic dreams for as long as they can.

They do not need to be subjected to the political bulldust thrust upon the rest of us, like “We will fix ramping” or “We will reduce your electricity prices” only to be rudely awakened by the back-pedalling hyperbole which inevitably comes when the promises can not be kept.

At least us old codgers have been around the block enough times to know better.

Social media just gave the politicians a tool to lie to us faster and more often, and we ain’t going to put that genie back in the bottle.

If you want the youth to be engaged in the political process, get them to start thinking of meaningful ways to change the system and to hold the blighters to account because the current system is going down the toilet real fast. – John Roccisano
