I hope bus abuse is an isolated incident Mayor's arguments unconvincing Councils should get out of housing Plan to fix late services Put Pacific ahead of Middle East wars People want decent public transport No place to stop on motorway Be upstanding for Lee Kuan Yew Legacy of misery, not happiness Stop attacks on golliwogs

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.
