Examine those who sanctioned Burke's behaviour

SMH Letters

The investigative arm of the Herald is to be congratulated for pursuing possible perpetrators of serious crime regardless of their reputation and for being?"Independent. Always".

Stadium spend a shocking extravagance

SMH Letters

Gladys, I'm sorry but you've lost my vote ("When we build them, the crowds will come", November 25-26).? Coming on the heels of the unnecessary massive cost involved in shifting the Powerhouse Museum and your focus on roads, rather than prioritising rail, the $2.3b (and?sure to rise) on stadiums is a shocking extravagance when your government cries poor on a litany of other, far more important issues. You are recently quoted stating there is an economic case to justify this extraordinary exercise, so please do feel free to articulate your position.?I won't comment on Allianz, other than to ask how do taxpayers know that the replacement won't be as poor quality as the current one?? If Roman stadiums have stood for a thousand years, then with all our technology, why can't yours last more than 50 years? Kay Buckeridge, Mosman

PM's parliamentary sittings whim out of order

SMH Letters

The media coverage of Malcolm Turnbull's political whim to cancel sittings of Federal Parliament next week has overlooked where he gets the power to make such a monumental but "stroke of the pen" decision. It is not strictly the PM who has the power – it is the Speaker of the House Tony Smith who relies on standing orders to control sitting schedules.

Publisher playing into China's hands

SMH Letters

Allen & Unwin should hang its head?in shame ("Writer fears great pall of China as book ditched",?November 13). By not publishing Clive Hamilton's book, Silent Invasion: How China is Turning Australia into a Puppet State, it is?playing right into China's hands.?If the publisher is?so concerned with Chinese government litigation, why not have a British?or US publisher publish it and we simply import or download copies. Or better still, beef up our own litigation laws to avoid this happening.?As the recent Four?Corners investigation showed, we as Australians need to have the facts before us. Why is China so concerned about the truth? Les Herbert Castle Hill

Burning the Midnight Oil over park use

SMH Letters

Peter Garrett's claim that "if?The Domain?was good enough for Paul's mentor Jack Lang it is good enough for Midnight Oil" rings hollow? ("Keating accuses Garrett of squatting on a sacred Sydney site", November 11-12).

Other-worldly display from Julie Bishop

SMH Letters

Obviously Julie Bishop didn't take notice of the weather forecast last Saturday. While wearing a giant flying saucer-sized hat at the Derby she could have been blown away.

Our leaders should care more for refugees

SMH Letters

Peter Dutton boasts that no asylum seeker has drowned on his watch ("As hardliner breaks ranks, PM leaves door ajar to NZ solution", November 6). Several have died, however in attacks or by suicide, and most will no doubt bear emotional scars for the rest of their lives, thanks to the mental torture they have been subjected to in our name.

NZ govt throws shade on Coalition's boors

SMH Letters

I feel ashamed as an Australian that we have such a dysfunctional and boorish government, in contrast to the relatively civilised and progressive government of New Zealand.
