does the person/people that dropped this person off at the hospital think that this relieves them of the responsibility....maybe sticking around to help with details would have been a good idea....

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
