Letters to the Editor

Remember to keep your distance Think hard before you judge people Context needed over Sydney siege Police shouldn't have apologised Airport costs hammer ratepayers Argument to merge doesn't stack up Praise and support for former MP's actions Social housing a poor result Speed signs add to confusion Top-down model doomed to fail

OPINION: Yes, Monday's Josef Mengele- Paula Bennett cartoon was pretty rough (Letters, May 15). So, of course, is the Government's notice to beneficiaries that it doesn't want their children. The eugenics and population-control road we are now on is the same as that taken by other totalitarian governments such as those in China and Nazi Germany.

We should note that Dr Mengele didn't break any of his nation's laws. Some laws are inherently wrong because they're unethical. It's not ethical for our Government to single out any group of citizens and suggest they shouldn't have more children.
