Les­son in the­atre plan

The pro­posal for re­build­ing the Court The­atre (July 28) ticks all the boxes. An af­ford­able staged de­vel­op­ment, a (largely) tim­ber build­ing, fit for pur­pose, look­ing to the fu­ture. May the same path be al­lowed for the cathe­dral. Alan Robb Ran­giora

Scrap dud laws

Un­just laws de­serve to be flouted. That’s how they get thrown out. I se­ri­ously doubt that any­one on a ben­e­fit de­clares all their other sources of in­come if they need to pro­vide for their fam­i­lies. When Na­tional re­duced ben­e­fits dras­ti­cally in the 90s they ba­si­cally de­clared war on the poor­est in so­ci­ety. Me­tiria Turei has made a stand against in­jus­tice and has just got my vote.
