Whilst I can appreciate that Labor wants to regain office and is afraid that Abbott’s “security uber alles” approach, if not appeased, will be to the Party’s disadvantage, I can only bemoan your acquiescence in okaying the bombing of Syria. Do you Ms Bird honestly think that this will result in making Syria in particular and the Middle East in general a safer and better place? Has the bombing in Iraq done so even to a small extent? It would seem that the thugs and nutters that make up much of IS are in the ascendency (and one can only hope that this is temporary) in part because we were a part of the invasion of Iraq in the first years of this new century. What we are committing to as now greater members of this current coalition of the killing is a continuation and perhaps increase in the suffering of those poor people in Syria in particular and the Middle East in general.

Your party and the Lib/Nats have no endgame and no real solution. The place is a geopolitical quagmire. Do you and your party honestly believe that more bombing will help? I can only hope that you do otherwise your acquiescence in this tragedy is nothing more than political expedience, a fair bit of which is the reason your political opponents are in favor of this furthering of our immoral involvement.

I can but hope that as my Federal MP you personally will oppose any more feet on the ground. That would be nothing short of lunacy.

Am I a cynic, or is the TV show on the ABC about the Rudd/Gillard years designed to take the spotlight off the implosion of the Liberal party?
Still, it’s better over now, and not during an election campaign.
But will Tone call an election in the very middle of the series?
What crass opportunism THAT would be!
Sarah, go visit your relatives in Scotland.

How good are your memories?
Remember when Dick Smith produced such products as Dick Smith Peanut butter? I bought it.
But he ALSO produced a “copy” of Readhead Matches.
Humorously, and perhaps self-effacingly, he called them “Dickheads.”
Richard Smith, OAM, will this be an ASSET or a liability?
Depends who you are MATCHED against, does it not?
With the Feral government the laughing stock of the entire world, matches like this will get people FIRED up. And there’s already a lot of arson about!
(Oh, it’s SO hard to speak
With tongue in your cheek!)

There’ll be a snow storm in hell before the current Feral Government come up with a decent climate change policy. Ralph Hunt wants to PAY people not to pollute. Could we also PAY people not to steal? Not to graffiti? Not to beat up their wives and children? CRAZY!

Would you please see what you can do in regards to internet services provided to a Helensburgh. We need to be able to conduct business but also do homework and it is next to impossible

My major concern is about Global Warming and Climate Change. I support Labor’s position on Renewable Energy Targets. Australia needs strong political leadership to make the changes required to be a front runner in finding solutions to the Global Climate Change risk to future generations.

Labor’s support for data retention and off shore processing are why I will no longer vote labor.

Hi Sharon,
I have to disagree with Labors decision to support Abbotts attack on Journalists sources. Labor should have shown some guts and refused point blank to work with them. Makes Labor look weak AGAIN.
