Well done Bryan Gould, on writing an excellent piece on Brexit (Opinion, June 24).
It was refreshing to read a column that focused on all the positive things that will come from leaving the EU dinosaur.
All I seem to read is doom, gloom and the apocalypse that will happen if the UK leaves - as Gould writes, Brexit hysteria.
All the doom-mongers need to get behind the country and accept they lost and the democratic result must be actioned and as quickly as possible.
It's been three years since "Leave" got the majority and I believe the uncertainty is doing more damage than when the UK leaves ever will.
Well done Bryan and bring on Brexit.
I read with interest the article by Bryan Gould ( Opinion, June 17 ).
I couldn't agree more. The article answered the question I had asked myself: Why all these strikes now we have the current government in power?
In Wellington on the day of the teachers' strike I witnessed the short memories of the protesters when clapping the National Party Member of Parliament for being there when it was in fact that government that brought the education sector - amongst others - almost to its knees.
Letters: Punishments such as time out are not effective
No one knows for sure how much work this current administration has to do to make good all the damage done by the previous government.
All I can say is well done to them so far because all the local National MPs seem to bang on about is roads roads roads.
