Ups and downs of life

North Taranaki Midweek - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - KATH BROWN OPIN­ION

THUMBS UP

TO: So many di­verse shows in the Fes­ti­val of Arts this year. There re­ally is some­thing for ev­ery­one.

TO: Beau­den Bar­rett sav­ing the All Blacks again. I just wish he had done it a lit­tle sooner. Any­one who thinks he can’t kick goals con­sis­tently should look at his stats.

TO: Taranaki half­back Ken­dra Cocksedge and her mighty Black Ferns be­ing crowned world champs. By the way, did you know she’s re­lated to Beau­den and Scott and Jordie?

THUMBS DOWN

TO: New Ply­mouth’s CBD area. It is dan­ger­ous when it’s wet. Who cares whether it’s the trees or the mil­lion dol­lar blue­stone pavers, just fix it please, NPDC. (OK so the mil­lion dol­lars might be a slight ex­ag­ger­a­tion but they were very ex­pen­sive.)

TO: Win­ston be­ing over­paid on his su­per? Surely not. He would be out­raged and not ac­cept any ex­pla­na­tion if it was any other MP.

TO: Gen­der vot­ing, whether you are male or fe­male. In­tel­li­gence is what we need, not good looks or a nice smile.
