Ups and downs of life

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

THUMBS UP

TO: The All Blacks. Not only did they come to Taranaki to play a test, they had the de­cency to win. Be­sides the plea­sure of watch­ing the Bar­rett boys we all got to see the next su­per­star, Vaea Fi­fita. What an amaz­ing ath­lete and a joy to watch.

TO: Politi­cian’s prom­ises. Bring them on I say. With every day I change my mind about how I am go­ing to vote as the bribes, I mean pledges, get big­ger and bet­ter.

TO: Tele­vi­sion cov­er­age of Hur­ri­cane Irma. It makes a wel­come change from lis­ten­ing to politi­cians.

TO: Chil­dren with good man­ners. It shows their par­ents care about them.

THUMBS DOWN

TO: Politi­cians who are promis­ing away our fu­tures. Ev­ery­body knows if you spend ev­ery­thing you have you are in deep trou­ble. Back off guys and gals. Credit us with some sense.

TO: Chil­dren who eat with their mouths open. It puts other peo­ple off. Of course if you get to eat what oth­ers can’t then I sup­pose it’s a good idea - in the­ory.
