Ups and downs of life

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

THUMBS UP

TO: Dairy farm­ers. Don’t let them get to you. We know you’re do­ing a great job and we should be thank­ing you, not try­ing to close you down or tax you.

TO: Beau­den Bar­rett. He showed those fickle re­porters who doubted him last week. You just can’t trust the me­dia to get it right.

TO: Te reo and the way so many Ki­wis made them­selves aware of the lan­guage and what it means to all New Zealan­ders. Keep it up, I say.

THUMBS DOWN

TO: Peo­ple who see some­thing bad in ev­ery­thing the op­po­site party says in this elec­tion cam­paign. I wish peo­ple would just lis­ten to all sides of an ar­gu­ment. Isn’t that what MMP is sup­posed to be all about?

TO: Sea­sons lost. Last sum­mer, au­tumn and now spring. Good luck in try­ing to find good weather.

TO: Thieves who are tar­get­ing tradies’ tools. Leave them alone, you low life. Tradies have to sup­ply their own tools so you are of­ten steal­ing from ap­pren­tices, peo­ple who are try­ing to make an hon­est liv­ing.
