Letters to the Editor

Sheppard's memory disrespected Leave the Treaty where it is Sweet sounds find a convert Colonisation part of Empire's history Spying is spying no matter who does it Sense of scale lets down theories GCSB here to spy, not to protect us Pressure was on Pistorius judge Lions need all the help they can get Economy should be front and centre

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.
