The Government is listening

The government pays monitoring companies to scan the talkback sessions looking for the mood of the electorate. So, send a 'letter to the editor' or phone your favourite radio talkback programme. Let others know how you feel.

Letters to the Editor

Letters to the editor provide an avenue to make your views public. Make the community and policy makers aware of your opinions!

Six tips on writing letters to the editor:

  1. Keep it short. 100-200 words is usually the absolute maximum.
  2. Use simple language.
  3. Relate what you say to a previous story (or letter) if possible.
  4. Don't send it as an attachment. Make your letter the body of the email.
  5. Include your name and address.
  6. You might find it helpful to use some of our suggested talking points, which you can download from here
