I am surprised and shocked to find that Cook Islands News has decided on a policy of not allowing non de plume names for letters to the editor.
The problem with statistics is they can be taken out of context and used to misrepresent the whole, as we have seen with the chlorine debate.
I am against the chlorination of our water. I have tasted chlorine in drinking water in New Zealand and dislike the smell and taste of it, it’s horrible.
The landmark decision to pamper MPs with a whopping $700,000 windfall is absurd and unjustified. They do not deserve it; they did not earn it.
