ANY crimes involving the presentation of firearms needs a mandatory jail sentence. Some people can't distinguish the difference between American TV shows and the reality of life in NZ.

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
