NZ needs own ‘Duterte Harry’

LETTER

President Duterte from the Philippines should be Prime Minister of New Zealand. He would weed out the lowlife drug traders and clean up the country. We are too soft and pc.

Be careful with what you wish for. Once he has cleaned out the group you don't like, he may well set his sights on a group you belong to.
I don't like drugs any more than the next person, but Duterte's way of dealing with the problem is far from visionary.

I have to admit the city where Duterte was Mayor for many years is remarkably clean and free from bad hombres. I speak from personal observation.
