Re: The SA Politics Thread

The deductions arent as significant as some think. The point is you have one house you pay $300 lets say. How do they justify then charging you $4500 for two houses of similar value? Yes its coming down, but that doesn't mean its at an acceptable level. If you tax mum and dad investors, your ordina...

Re: The Federal Politics Thread

Re: The Federal Politics Thread

Except, issues based progressive activist groups very often attack free market capitalism as the problem, and their answers to "progressive issues" seem to always involve some sort of socialism as the answer. That is why generally, people associate progressives with socialism. So although not the s...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Grange branch could be replaced by bus, even better as it can run via QEH providing Grange and Seaton residents a direct link with QEH.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Obviously I don't often use heavy rail in Adelaide. But on a visit earlier in the year, I used Glenelg tram for a trip to the beach, and the Grange train to visit my mum at Grange. Although the seats on the tram were less comfortable, the actual speed of the tram over the train was better, given it...
