Ups and downs of life

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

THUMBS UP

TO: Home­com­ing he­roes. It’s great to have the All Blacks here for a week. Wel­come home Beau­den and Scott (no last name re­quired).

TO: The NPDC, which or­gan­ised a mov­ing powhiri on Sun­day night to wel­come the All Blacks, and to the dig­ni­fied re­sponse from the team, es­pe­cially Nehe Mil­ner-Skud­der who an­swered in flu­ent te reo on their be­half.

TO: Cop­ing well. It is great to see Taranaki Base Hospi­tal is able to cope with huge num­bers of ill peo­ple this win­ter. Well done to ev­ery­one in A& E and the wards.

THUMBS DOWN

TO: Doc­tor short­age. What has hap­pened to all the GPs in Taranaki?

TO: Self­ish drivers. I know I’ve said it be­fore, but what makes some peo­ple think they can park in clearly marked car parks for the dis­abled?

TO: Peo­ple who try to shout down those who dis­agree with them. I would hate to see NZ fol­low­ing the United States, where peo­ple are beaten up be­cause some­one else dis­agrees with them.
