Short & Sweet
Trump himself has acknowledged the power of “fear” in his modus operandi. His frontal assault on the media at the recent press conference proves his own theory. He fears what he faces from a Democratdominated House as well he might. Larry Mitchell, Puhoi.
Radio NZ used comments from Alex Swney to verify Sroubek’s testimony. Are you serious? Swney stole millions from IRD and targeted ratepayers from a position of trust. His comments are of zero use to anyone. Brent Murdoch, Greenlane.
What a nonsense. Trevor Mallard and Gerry Brownlee spending $24,000 of taxpayers’ money on a trip to Japan to watch the rugby. The country has many, many more deserving needs. Good on Act’s David Seymour for speaking out against it. Danna Glendining, Hamilton.
I would call Trump’s hair colour piebald. I won’t insult cats by calling it tortoiseshell. Dawn Chote, Stanmore Bay.
On electric cars
The lakes are reported low and a gas line in Taranaki is out of action. If we all had electric cars what a drain that would be. Have the Greens got an ecologically safe means of disposing of the batteries? D. Hamilton, Glen Eden.
The media reported on Mike Hosking a few days ago stating a majority of his listeners don’t like him. Donald Trump has had the same said about him since he became president. That’s because they are both successful in what they do. John Cooper, Narrow Neck.
