Blog comments Your Say

  • Well Gayle
    You should be happy living anywhere in Australia.

    It appears that if anyone offers an alternative view to the stance that you take, your coping mechanism is to revert to a childish asinine immature barrage of insults against the person posting.
    In view of your inability to have an adult debate and put forward an intelligent response to postings I will take the adult stance and ignore your puerile ravings in future.

  • So I should lower my standards to the level of yours Bob?
    MY standards dictate that it should be safe for an old age pensioner to be able to shop in safety at 10.30 in the morning not be put at risk buy a bunch of drunken yobbos.
    MY standards dictate that you should be able to park your car in a shopping centre car park and not come back to discover that it has been broken into.
    My standards dictate that a person should be able to drive down the street without fear of your car being hijacked.
    My standards dictate I treat people with respect until they prove they do not deserve that respect which is why I have absolutely no respect for either you or your comments and judging by the comments directed to you on this blog most agree with me.

  • What's the difference Gayle - expecting everyone to live to your standards?
    The colour of the skin of the people involved?
    There is no difference. People drinking, people pushing and shoving. The time is irrelevant. The colour of skin is irrelevant. Shit happens in a drinking society.

  • Stupid comment as usual Bob Lord there is a big difference between 10.30 am in a shopping centre and late at night near a hotel in a known entertainment area, but I expect nothing less from you.

    Gayle Wednesday 16 January, 2013 - 1:41 PM
  • Ah well Gayle
    If you drive through the Valley or Surfers Paradise late at night, or anywhere near a busy hotel in fact you will find your Caucasian people drinking and shoving each other around.

    Bob Lord Wednesday 16 January, 2013 - 12:59 PM
  • I drove through Woodridge recently on my way to Springwood at 10.30 in the morning, first reaction after stopping at the lights was to lock the car doors because the car park of the shopping centre had several groups of younger people drinking and shoving each other, most noticeable was the lack of Caucasian people compared to the indigenous and Islander people around.
    If Pam Parker wants to see problems they are just down the road from the Council Chambers, perhaps she should start there.
