New high for elec­tion cam­paign­ing?

The Press - - Perspective -

I thought this would make a great ar­ti­cle: ‘‘God re­po­si­tions elec­tion sign’’.

One of two Labour Party elec­tion hoard­ings screwed to the fence at the cor­ner of Turn­ers and Spencerville roads was repo­si­tioned per­fectly dur­ing Fri­day’s gust.

It must have gone straight up 15 me­tres and about 6 me­tres north.

Per­mis­sion will be asked of the Elec­toral Com­mis­sion to al­low God to take this one down in Her own time – be­fore or af­ter the elec­tion on Saturday, as I hate heights.

The moral to the story is when wash­ers have been pur­chased to be used with the screws, then use them. Tim Baker Aranui

In need of Greens

Seems it’s time for an­other round of ‘‘empty prom­ises to make amends for decades of or­ches­trated in­ac­tion on cli­mate change’’, aka the gen­eral elec­tion.

I’m gut­ted that the Greens have man­aged to self-sab­o­tage when they are so badly needed.

They, alone, had seemed to un­der­stand that, for once, we face a sin­gle is­sue that out­weighs even such burn­ing ques­tions as in­equal­ity de­spite a vi­brant econ­omy. Andrew Troup Christchurch
