Proud my son won't be a politician Blame shared for World War I Waterfront best route for cyclists Give consumers the power Plan shows roading bias Few options for parents Mainstream schools can be welcoming Fluoride problems may be in the mind Gun salute a jarring commemoration Our roads are too run-down

OPINION: One could be forgiven for noticing the similarities between the New Zealand Army and their recent reckless live firing exercises in tinder-dry areas, and those of a certain Captain Mainwaring and his troupe of Home Guard volunteers that featured in the well- known TV comedy series, Dad's Army, set in World War II England. Certainly the circumstances of this ineptitude would have made a hilarious episode in that series, despite being alarming in today's real-life conditions.
