The coalition goes to the bottom of the class to not learn the lessons


Can this government not consider any surplus as a "war chest" ("Coalition gathers the electoral war chest", November 26)? The taxes we have earned, the business and export profits are necessary for infrastructure, education and health investments for the country as a whole, for wisdom, without loss of efforts to return to a government that has not proved to be worth voting for once again. – Sue Lubbers, Killara

"They have learned nothing and have forgotten nothing," said Talleyrand of the French Bourbon: a condition now so close to Einstein's definition of madness that it does not matter. An inclined government to the right can really be charged to buy the next federal election, but will it really save? – Max Fossey, Oakville

It would be a good idea for the Coalition to release the detritus at the bottom of their war chest before putting anything else into it. – Joy Wilson, Kensington

A head-to-hand approach of an earlier benefactor, Malcolm Turnbull, can pay dividends. – Steve Ngeow, Chatswood

Congratulations to Daniel Andrews about his victory. It made me sad, like a NSW woman, to hear her state Victoria is the most progressive state, because she is right. – The Coral button, North Epping

In recent days, I have seen Victorians say that Melbourne is Australia's food capital. They also claimed to be the sports capital. On Saturday night, their prime minister claimed he was the most progressive state. While we quarreled with none of these honorable honors, I gave Victoria the extra title of champions undoubtedly undoubtedly the universe in hyperbole. – Ross Elliott, Balmain

Turn your way to irrelevancy and defeat

The Liberal Party, both state and federal, should continue to go right ("Take a Step Right: Lesson for Berejiklian", November 26). Then it can become the extreme right edge party that is irrelevant that it deserves to be. – Simon Squires, Hornsby

John Ruddick refuses to face the lessons of a series of electoral elections, victorious elections, and years of bad opinion polls.
The policy of hard conservative law is increasingly unpopular. One is left to wonder if this determination is driven by nothing more than the odd taste-like ideologies that seem to have for a glorious, quixotic defeat.
As long as there is some space to the right of the policy in which Gladys Berejiklian could move the NSW government, I hope he does. Because then, in March, you can make the movement you have to do – out of power. – Michael Hinchey, New Lambton

Tony Abbott did not win the "moral" election in 2010, after having won a preferred two-party vote of 49.88%. Far from being "desperately willing," the 2014 budget was a massive failure, a widespread attempt to implement an imbalanced ideology that targets poor and middle-income employees, while enriching the wealthy. Abbott and his treasurer, Joe Hockey, have never recovered.
People in NSW are not so different from other Victorians. And they want investment in schools, hospitals and public transport. They do not want evil policies to punish minorities for political gain. Another right-wing direction of the Coalition in this state would be disastrous for its people and, ultimately, for the Coalition itself. – Jonathan Tanner, Darlinghurst

Ruddick wrote a book called Re-turn the Liberal Party again. The problem is that Australians do not give a figure in 2018 to make any great political party again. What interests them is to find people capable of pulling this country from the past and into the future, far from the policies that Ruddick and his kind keep so dear. Penny has not fallen for them and probably will never. – Denis Williams, Sydney

It is good to see that political satire is still being published in herald. How long before a good understanding church promotes a modest proposal to cope with overcrowding and overcrowding? – Evan Bailey, Glebe

The outcome of the Victorian elections means that in NSW, could we be free from the mindless ones who crawled each other in terms of law and order? I'd love to see closed prisons and open schools. Is that so hard to imagine? – Laurence Pearson, Castlecrag

Macquarie St pairing is good news

In this age of sharp division and aggressive partisanship, we rarely see opposing camps that combine for greater good ("Keating, Turnbull to help Macquarie St's muzzle," November 26).
But the news that Paul Keating and Lucy Turnbull will enrich their expertise and passion for sprawling on Macquarie Street is a very welcome exception.
Importantly, both of these people are visionary with an understanding of history and an eye for aesthetic qualities – unfortunate because of the explosion of accommodation developments across Sydney. I look forward to the changes that these two experts propose. – Des Connolly, Loftus

A good start would be to get rid of all the visual pollution that is displayed around the light poles, banners / advertising flags installed by the Sydney City Council and the need for so many parking signs. – Jeremy West, Paddington

Now there are five weeks since the Wentworth election, but there are still posters of candidates on the electorate's posts. A fine on unsold posters or a repayable deposit on posters could speed up their removal. – Graham Russell, Clovelly

Sydney can go tall

Yes, Sydney could "overcome the world," formalizing a track from Manly to Bondi ("New Walk of Sydney", November 26). After I have traveled many of the world's most important routes, I know in a scenic way that it will rival all. – Katriona Herborn, Blackheath

The efforts of the six councils to bind the coastal walks around Sydney Harbor are good, but the full ride might be great. A walkway off the coast of Darling Point would be the best. – Alex Erskine, point cremorne

What a good idea. Being embarrassed by the fact that you need to readjust your steps when you go to South Cape when a small naval landline could make that part a circular ride. Shame also about the entire walking street, because of the rich whose properties go directly to the edge of the cliff or the harbor port. – Josephine Piper, Miranda

My friends and I went in stages from Barrenjoey Head to Otford, being the southern end of the South Coast route of the Royal National Park. The variety of landscapes along this coastline and around the harbor can be worthy of the title "the most spectacular in the world," but not the mini-ride from Manly to Bondi. Unfortunately, a bit of it is accessible for wheelchairs. – Mike Cuming, Carlingford

Patients need the opiate plan

Not only are patients relieved from the hospital on opiates, which may or may not be necessary ("I'm not lollies: calling for a reconsideration of opiates," November 26), but in my experience as a general practitioner, considering a written plan or even verbally about how to resign to less powerful analgesia.
I have often discovered patients for as long as two weeks after stopping they just took opioids even when they had no pain, fearing that if they stopped, they would have pains. Like antibiotics, they think they have to "complete the course". – Dr. Ruth Ratner, Northbridge

Ethics displayed

Your correspondent argues that synchronized operators are salvaging the opportunity to eliminate the governments of the workers who have come, well-meaningful subsidies for storing internal battery power (Letters, November 26). It would be a good idea to make a cost-benefit analysis of education and education development programs to build educational revolution programs for homeowners and individual schools and the country in general. Your correspondent will discover that the new government has learned a strong lesson on the ethics of small businesses. – Marjorie Sutcliffe, The Rocks

Infrastructure nonsense

Your correspondent (Letters, November 26) seems to want to take the lead in "commonsense" suggesting that infrastructure (or lack) is the only problem with high population growth. Like many articles in herald have suggested that lack of infrastructure is just one of the many problems caused by rapid population growth. Saying that we need more infrastructure is not good. – Andrew Cronin, Robertson

Forty years ago, the state government qualified Rouse Hill as the next major housing development. Telecom Australia responded with a network launch so moving people could have phones (fixed phones) in the shortest possible time but the government has suddenly changed its mind and Rouse Hill lagged for over three decades . Expand this imbecile to include transportation, utilities and facilities, and get the picture. Where is the national water management plan? Power? Decentralization? Transport? – David Gordon, Cranebrook

It is very good to ask more immigrants to bring their wealth or, in their absence, at least the best intentions to love and promote their new home. But at a time when we redirect our reserves of electricity to turn sea water into fresh water, we do well to remember that they can not bring anything to drink. – Mitch Geddes, Palm Beach

Income tax

Just because the current franchise system was only in the Howard years, does not mean that the previous system was right (Letters, November 26). A single tax of 30% of all dividend income is not fair for low-income people, such as pensioners. It is better that income from shares be taxed at a rate of personal income tax, up to 30%, even when entering a zero tax environment, as a retirement pension scheme rather than a grasp of 30% of citizens' incomes. – Vicki Stone, Kingsford

Lessons for Life

A wonderful article by Alana Leabeater ("I received an ATAR 99 but I had a bad education," November 26). He presents himself as a practical and successful young student, whose self-education will accompany him for the rest of his life. They want her good. – Anne Galbraith, Cremorne

In our "Kate" praise

Good (again) Kate McClymont ("The State to Follow Obeid for $ 5 Million," November 26). If you want something well reported, bring Kate. No matter what is paid, Walkleys aside, deserves more money. – Judy Powell, West Pennant Hills

Cavalry winners earn the best billing

What a pleasure to see Australian women's cricket team receives top billing on sports pages ("Top of the World", November 26). When was the last time that female sport was so great? – Rob Phillips, North Epping

While I'm not a sports fan, I even know that the Australian team beat England to win the T20 World Cup. Congratulations, team. – Karen Eldridge, Leichhardt

Wow! Honest athletes, dedicated and talented. No dragon queens. – Colin Hutton, Collaroy

Flying with the pants chair

Easier business class pajamas? And plastic ice buckets? Such abominations for weight reduction in aircraft ("Aircraft Weighing Flyers and Good Boats", November 26). Sounds like a Fawlty Towers episode. – Judy Finch, the Cedar Party

While airlines fly to paper, plates and pajamas to reduce their fuel bills, they do not seem to be willing to address the elephant in the cabin: the weight of the passengers. – Amanda Berry, Scone

They could escape the duty-free carriage and those fat catalogs that clutched our leg room. That should beat a few pounds. Implementing the transport rules would also ease the load. – Geoff Goodfellow, Moss Vale
