A quick word
I would catch a fast train to the airport. With that slow tram proposal, l’ll continue to drive.
Rex Warwood, Hillcrest.
The Labour Party has amassed a nest egg of $5.5b within a year of office, despite some hefty outgoings. If this is not an “inheritance” from National we must look forward eagerly to the size of the egg by the end of their term.
Jeni Peterson, One Tree Hill.
So when Winston told the nurses there was no more money, was that a lie or collective incompetence? No surprises either way. Craig Dalton, East Tamaki.
ACC is to give refunds to thousands of small business owners who have been wrongly charged. Would it not be simpler to give them a credit on their next payment due?
Bob Wichman, Botany.
The new high-rise designed for the centre of Auckland looks like a partially stubbed cigarette.
Robin Reid, Tauranga.
The light rail option is like a pedestrian trying to cross the Harbour Bridge at 5pm. Imagine the construction chaos. Rex Head, Papatoetoe.
Thank James and Jacinda for the increases in petrol prices. When they shut down exploratory oil drilling, they cut off their noses to spite their faces. This enabled overseas companies to sock us more and more, as we now have no leverage.
Lesly Allsopp, Taupo.
I’m annoyed when on radio and TV I hear reguly and particuly. Is it that hard to pronounce these words, or don’t they care a jot?
Mike Jarman, One Tree Hill.
Ford unsuccessfully criminalised Kavanaugh. There’s three sides to a story — his, hers, and the truth.
Glenn Forsyth, Taupo.
Surely we should be increasing the tax on petrol (and all other fossil fuels) by a dollar per litre per annum until it runs out.
John McConnell, RD Silverdale.
Alex Davis is to be congratulated on his article on political bias in academia. The same issue exists throughout the education system, media and politics.
R. S. Stratton, Te Atatu.
I wonder why Sonny Bill is not proud enough of representing New Zealand to sing the national anthem along with his teammates? Mary Tallon, Morningside.
Petrol has been pumped out of the ground, refined and transported half-way round the world, transported again by road and pumped in your tank to be burnt all for $2.50, a bit less than a pump bottle of water. Vince West, Milford.
