Letters to the Editor

Letter: Our beating heart Letter: Show us the facts please, minister Letter: Urgent action needed on legal highs Letter: Students need to be treated equally Letter: Ko deserves funding while finding feet Letter: Policy should always beat popularity Letter: Growth in bike use can only be good Letter: Provinces forgotten come election time Letter: PM should reveal his incomes, taxes Letter: More bikes good for car drivers

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.
