LAST POST PER THE OZ WEBSITE ON MARCH 3 2015:
I have no idea where this comes from - it is incompatible with anything published the last few days in The Australian.
THE true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity. Say what you mean and mean what you say. We are sick of obfuscation, weasel words and lies. It’s not about loyalty to your leader, the party and your colleagues. It’s about loyalty to our country and those who voted you into office. Before we decide to vote informal at the next election, please reintroduce some integrity into Australian politics.

Tony Abbott will be basking in the good news about improved polling. Unfortunately for him there is the possibility that the improvement may be based on the electorate’s expectations that Malcolm Turnbull will soon be PM.

The Coalition parties should not be asking what Tony Abbott can do for them, they should be asking what they can do for Tony Abbott.

Perhaps the Prime Minister ought to replace his good mate and Treasurer Joe Hockey with his good mate and Vatican financial watchdog, Cardinal George Pell.

Why do I get an uneasy feeling leadership speculation in the Liberal camp has more to do with power posturing in the party and little if anything to do with the national interest?

Thank you, Vic Alhadeff, for exposing what is being said on the streets of Sydney at a time when unity and respect are what is called for (“It may be more difficult to recognise and counter, but nonviolent extremism is no less deadly”, 2/3). Jew hatred expressed by these evil sayers of Hizb ut-Tahrir is truly dangerous. You don’t have to be cutting off heads and burning people to be violent and dangerous Words can also incite and influence.

The recent video shown by Hizb ut-Tahrir gives us a glimpse into their medieval world beyond the nuanced speech of their apologists. In Australia, we can’t afford to be complacent.

Thank you, Grace Collier, for your Q&A critique (“Lessons of the leaf taught me a lot”, 28/2). It took me only a few episodes to understand that this program is nothing more than a scripted parlour game in which a self-congratulatory presenter shows off his political savvy by asking loaded questions to which he already knows the answer and the panellists then win applause for their prowess as dodgers, deflectors and dissemblers.
