Dear Editor, I’ve always preferred your paper over that “Other” Bribie giveaway – yours has usually been free of political input, whereas the other one is a shill for the Liberal Party conservatives and reptilian social conservatives. So I was disappointed to see your “Laugh Riot” section take a spiteful whack at Greens voters (“no job, no plans…”). This is just another inaccurate caricature with no basis in actual fact. Still, I’m sure it raised a few guffaws in your readership, so in the interests of balance, I thought I’d submit a few more jokes for you. I haven’t got them all written yet, just the endings, but I can work on them further if you’d like. In the meantime here are the punchlines: “A typical Liberal voter,” he said, “smug, selfish, uncaring and in the pockets of Big Business!” “Oh no! He’s a Labor voter!” she exclaimed “A hypocritical yobbo… in the pocket of Big Business!” “Just like a One Nation voter,” he groaned “An ignorant bigot… in the pockets of Big Business!” Let me know if you’d like more zingers like these – I got a million of ‘em.
Regards, Tony Longland, Bellara.
Dear Editor, Weather as given on the TV Channels Given that we are advised of forthcoming weather wouldn’t it be nice to have weather presenters do it properly? I cannot accept the need to send a weather presenter on a jolly to the Ski Fields in Canada when presenting Australian weather. It seems to me that it is a total addon cost and unnecessary? So where are these places that are given as – “The Goldie, Tassie, the Alice, etc.”. With possible showers, sunny with occasional rain, windy at times and hot. I ask with the millions spent on weather that more accuracy is given than possible weather, and keep our presenters in Australia rather than junket’s overseas. Come Home Stevie! A Happy 2019 to all.
