Letters to the Editor

Stay away from indoor farming Thanks for the great service Dog owners not the only polluters Two options to help road users Potential threats need to be checked Reprisals no reason to stay out of fight Time to tinker with national super age Creative ways to save water Councils need to cut their cloth It's not the roads, it's too many cars

OPINION: Here we go again. A minority group is claiming it owns our water. What nonsense.

Someone said that the energy companies were stealing their water to generate electricity. I presume that Maori aren't using this electricity but using candles and hangi?

The claim is as preposterous as Prime Minister John Key's claim that he has a mandate to sell our country to the highest bidder just because he won the last election.

I don't recall any referendum being held at election time.

There was some talk of indigenous rights and I presume they cover me because New Zealand is my country of birth.

Why don't we have referendums for both issues?

But that would never do; then democracy would go against both parties and that would never be accepted.

I definitely disagree with asset sales and also with capitulating to minority radical groups.
