Letters to the Editor

This Month

“Western nations must avoid allying themselves too closely to the provocative and aggressive Netanyahu-led Israeli government.”

Australians should unite to support Israeli and Palestinian civilians

The Middle East eruption and its repercussions in Australia; post-mortems on the Indigenous Voice referendum.

“Mr Dutton’s name will henceforth be associated with opposition to closing the gap.”

Voting conservative a last resort for this voter

Letter writers opine on the Voice referendum, lawyers and company boards; the idea of taxing retirees; and Jorn Utzon’s incredible achievement.

Voice referendum result reveals who we are

Fallout from the failed referendum; mortgage ‘cliff’ myth; Middle East conflict and Jesus’ teachings; Joe Aston’s best quips; Cheng Lei and Julian Assange.

Is hydrogen taking Australia in the wrong direction?

Hydrogen dream is taking Australia in the wrong direction

Renewable journey shouldn’t include hydrogen; Chairman’s Lounge membership a mistake; franking credits ready for reform; a sad farewell to Joe Aston.

It has been suggested to Chris Bowen that the ban on nuclear energy should be lifted.

Are small modular reactors really a solution?

Nuclear option’s pros and cons; skills shortage and foreign students; Voice campaign and identity issues; motherhood and sexism; the new, improved Collingwood.

The Voice will only “speak to parliament and the executive government, but does not replace, direct or impede the actions of either”.

Constitutional principles are not challenged by the Voice

Fearmongering on the Voice; repeating myths about the Constitution; super’s hit on housing affordability; misplaced Wallabies gloom.

Day of reckoning approaches for Australia.

I’ll vote Yes for the Indigenous religion of sustainability

What the Voice referendum means; accounting firms and accountability; Mike Pezzullo’s record; Victoria’s Dan disaster; two sides to Australia’s Timor role.



Celebrating Dan Andrews’ departure

Delight (and some dismay) over Victorian premier’s unexpected exit; our risky US alliance; constitutional provisions; Indigenous disadvantage; energy transition.


‘Don’t know? Vote No’ translates into Yes for this reader

The Voice referendum grabs some and alienates others; why support for nuclear power is increasing; is Vanessa Hudson blameless in Qantas’ failings?; a reason for construction labour shortages.

Rupert Murdoch’s retirement and Lachlan’s ascent are not the end of the succession saga.

Murdoch’s pursuit of ‘freedom’ and ‘truth’

Rupert Murdoch’s legacy; Albanese’s absurd COVID inquiry; frequent flyers find Qantas pointless; Rishi Sunak’s net zero backtracking.

Yellow Brick Road founder Mark Bouris.

Mark Bouris’ Yellow Brick Road has led investors nowhere

Understanding the Yellow Brick Road proposed delisting; a super solution for rail freight; the dangers of Britain’s net zero backflip.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.

Tell the PM he’s dreamin’ on his social housing ‘accelerator’

Carlton “accelerator” model is not going to help Anthony Albanese reach his targets; nuclear’s long-term effects; AI is no match for human nature.

Chris Bowen.

We already have a nuclear fusion reactor – it’s called the Sun

Chris Bowen is correct on nuclear; time for a debate between Jacinta Price and Linda Burney; childcare is more than child minding; Tim Gurner spoke the truth; AFL ignoring concussion, Indigenous issues.

Gurner must remember the human cost of jobs

Truth hurts: Gurner call on the money; Qantas treating Perth like foreign base; Fair referendum or political bunfight?; Stamp duty change not the answer.

Qantas Chairman’s Lounge: so what?

Tim Gurner’s plan ignores an obvious downside; Voice debate should focus on wording; Albanese, Burney need to hit campaign trail; Don’t let hindsight be governor Lowe’s judge; Time Santos and others invested in the future.

New Qantas chief executive Vanessa Hudson will take delivery of a new plane every three weeks for three years under the airline’s fleet investment program.

Time for a super profit tax on Qantas

Taxpayers want their $1.5 billion back; what’s the point of useless Frequent Flyer points?; Yes vote could be a first step to something better

September 6, 2023

Is the tide already turning at Qantas?

Customers’ ‘me-first’ attitude is just as bad; Qantas’ hypocrisy got it into trouble; Langton too late to change minds; Eraring can be closed on time.

  • Updated
Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce will retire early.

How I got a Qantas refund in three months

Qantas charged me a $1200 cancellation fee and my points were gone. Getting them back took persistence; If you don’t know about the Voice, go and find out.

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce.

Why does Qantas get away with this?

Passengers list their unhappy experiences with the national carrier; not the first outing for John Farnham’s ‘Voice’.

Alan Joyce

I was a loyal Qantas customer for 30 years. Not any more

Aston a one-man opposition; Still the best CEO in Australia?; Virgin isn’t perfect either; Spare a thought for Qantas staff;
