On al­co­hol

When it comes to the le­gal age to drink, lib­er­al­i­sa­tion costs lives while con­ser­vatism costs free­doms, ex­cept the free­dom to live. Dave Pur­cell, Mis­sion Bay.

On poll

The lat­est Col­man Brun­ton poll in­di­cat­ing NZ First would no longer be in Par­lia­ment after the 2020 elec­tion must be heart­en­ing for PM Jacinda Ardern. I feel sure she would like to be free of her po­lit­i­cal grandad Win­ston Pe­ters. Gor­don Clout, Taupo.

On Christ­mas

Some are upset be­cause they didn't get to see the ex­pected Santa at the Santa pa­rade. Some of us are upset we don't get to see the ex­pected baby Christ at the Christ­mas pa­rade. R. Clu­ley, Mt Roskill.

On gangs

What a heart­felt story from Jar­rod Gil­bert. I shed a lit­tle tear at the end. Yes, Puk is a suc­cess story and Levi will in­spire us. Sue Humphrey, Wai­heke Is­land.

On Wil­liams

Gre­gor Paul sug­gests that the next 10 weeks is the key to cer­tain jaded ABs get­ting back to form. It should be a breeze for SBW as he doesn't have any real form to get back to. Dave Mur­ray, Grey Lynn.

On M. bo­vis

I can’t un­der­stand why tax­pay­ers are com­pen­sat­ing farm­ers whose live­stock catch a dis­ease. Farm­ers should in­sure their stock. Isaac Don­ald­son, North­cote.
