Barbarians hide behind religion Milk prices stay stagnant A day of war to remember Ferry service deserves better How well was siege handled? Charter schools can be a success Attacks will always happen A long history of torture Safety of fruit paramount Fonterra pricing a head-scratcher

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.
