Your opinion: on ICAC changes and more

Today readers are commenting on parliamentary protection, a roundabout and the electric near future of driving.

Commentary on the opinion piece: Exactly how the SA politicians protected themselves from ICAC

The weakening of the ICAC has implications for all citizens and for the overall structure of our political governance in South Australia. We should be outraged. But I watch my eyes glaze over as I try to explain what the political class was presented with last week. Thanks for the analysis. – Cathy Beitz

Unfortunately, we, the voters, don’t get to see this self-interest preoccupation before we vote it. Our chance to change our representatives will come next year, if only we could be sure that another candidate would be different. – Anthony Curtis

If ICAC had been sufficiently funded in the first place to get enough research funding, wouldn’t things have crystallized? – Steven Harrison

George Orwell’s Animal farm Published 75 years ago is very to the point here. In the story, Manor Farm’s pigs took the lead and determined, “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others”. -Michael Whitrow

Commentary on the story: Council calls for halt to $20 million upgrade of Old Belair Rd junction and Your opinion Thursday 30 September

The solution to the Old Belair Road – James Road intersection is to make the entire block one-way. Cars going up the hill can all go up James Road and up Sheoak Road to Belair/Blackwood; cars coming from Belair or the park could be denied access to James Road and only came down Old Belair Road.

There would be grumbling, but there are precedents. Anyone navigating the CBDs of Hobart or Sydney will have experienced minor diversions comparable to this length which are well accepted in those states. -Peter Whitehouse

Commentary on the story: Rolls-Royce cars will be fully electric by 2030

The Rolls-Royce announcement is the latest commitment made by automakers around the world. They join Audi, BAIC, Bentley, Changan, Daimler, Ferrari, Fiat, Ford, Genesis, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Kia, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Lotus, Mercedes, Mini, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Toyota, Vauxhall, Volkswagen and Volvo committed to a majority or all-electric platform by 2030-40.

There is a good chance that the next car Australian consumers will buy will be partially or fully electric. Roll over Scott Morrison, electric vehicles are here, and there will be many more soon. – Jasper Lee
