Letters to the Editor

Letters are one of the most important parts of the paper because this is where the community has a chance to have its say. All letters to the editor received will generally be published, provided they are not defamatory or are covering exactly the same ground by the same writer.

Non du plume are acceptable, but the name, address and contact details must be provided to the editor.

Dear Editor,

To my friend who is a looking for fresh air (CINews, June 1), Socrates has this for you: “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.”

Dear Editor,

Firstly, may I apologise for interfering in public sector developments, which I am about to do…

Dear Editor,

Your story of May 29, headed “Parties have say on pa enua project”, solicited comments from political parties on the Paradise Prosperity Plan (PPP) development scoped by Merchant of Paradise (MOP) for the Pa Enua.

Dear Editor,

From his musings in the letters to the editor of CINews, it’s hard to know if Dennis Tunui is being silly, serious, satirical or flat-out delusional.

Dear Editor,

I was personally encouraged to see that others like “Move On” are concerned about the callous campaign tactics of George Pitt and the Democratic Party.

Dear Editor,

Obviously the letter-writer “Action Time” has good eyesight. Well done you, the Captain Tama billboard is obviously doing what is it intended to do, make people take notice!

Dear Editor,

As a voter who has kept an open mind about which political party I would like to see govern this country for the next four years, I have been turned off by the ongoing criticism from the Demo Party about the performance of CIP government over the past four years.

Dear Editor,

If you weren’t tuned in to the radio on Thursday, you would not have heard a call from the deputy prime minister Teariki Heather who gave the Takitumu panel of the Democratic Party a real tongue lashing!

Dear Editor,

I am picking up on the suggestion that John Scott made recently that the Te Mato Vai petition should be published in CINews so that those issues raised by the 2000 petitioners could be read again and issues faced now could be compared with the concerns raised four years ago.
