Govt needs to uphold three Ps

LETTER

I thought that our Government was focusing on anti-bullying, yet they seem to have one as a Minister.

Mr Jones, your comments speak more about you than the hapu you have slammed.

The capitilistic economy system you are driving is archaic and destructive on our community and environment.

Without the protection of our resources, industrial expansion will continue to invade our coasts.

The word Minister means “to tend, care for and look after” — that’s what hapu are doing, yet you slam them!?

Hapu should be congratulated for their stand, protecting what few natural resources we have.

Why aren’t we talking more about a marine reserve at Kaiti Beach? Tourists would love it.

I thought your Government was putting its members through tikanga lessons so that you would uphold the three Ps our founding document is based on: Participation, Partnerships and Protection.

Thought you were alluding to the Paper, Pee and Poo advert on Gary Bates' majestic advertising board. Makes about as much sense.
