Manawatu Standard - - COMMENT&OPINION -

❚ Ma¯ori should not be a com­pul­sory sub­ject taught in schools. There should be spe­cial classes for those who want to learn it. Just like other lan­guages. ❚ Would any party bring back com­pul­sory mil­i­tary train­ing? Mike ❚ What’s hap­pen­ing to all the PO Boxes at NZ Post’s Church St shop? Looks like I’m safe, hav­ing one at Main St, close to my of­fice. SS ❚ I was re­ally im­pressed with my Mcdon­ald’s in­stant win prize of a dis­count of $10 off when I hire a car. I would have pre­ferred a big mac, not a dis­count off some­thing. ❚ With a $520,000 a year short­fall to run the Ma¯ori/dutch mu­seum in Fox­ton, to be paid by ratepay­ers, hope­fully the English/euro­pean de­scen­dants are ex­empt be­cause they’re not men­tioned in all the pub­lic­ity about this mu­seum, even though they are the found­ing cul­ture of Fox­ton. ❚ I fear for NZ should Labour win the elec­tion. We can­not have an in­ex­pe­ri­enced, self-opin­ion­ated leader run­ning this coun­try. Think hard NZ. JP ❚ ACC sign­ing work­ers off be­fore they are fit enough to work. Hos­pi­tals strug­gling to save lives through fund­ing short­ages. Vote for the cur­rent Gov­ern­ment? Think again, folks. Les­ley
