David Bennett former MP for Hamilton East.

John from Fairfield

It was a very nice touch to see a lonely David Bennett by himself waving a placard at the Boundary Road bridge which was thanking his supporters with a big smile and a friendly wave. He may have lost his electoral seat last weekend but has been generous in saying thank you for the support given to him at this time. This was nice to see.

divergent impacts

Paul from Pukete

The first run of a new passenger rail service wasn't as smooth as anticipated after children threw rocks at the train.

The new rail service train Te Huia, which will operate from Waikato to Auckland, was making its way through Ngaruawahia on its maiden test run to Papakura on Monday when rocks were thrown at it.

The window was toughened glass, which shattered but held, and while the financial cost was small, throwing rocks at trains was an unacceptable and irresponsible act, a KiwiRail spokesman said. Residents on a Ngaruawahia social media page expressed their frustration at this happening in their community. “We as a community should not tolerate this type of behaviour as it impacts on us all.

Completely correct you change behaviour by changing consequence, find them and discipline them harshly

It is becoming very hard to be not surprised at this level of destruction that is caused by residents in this town that houses the Maori king. The reason the window was broken was not because of the ancestral skill of the inhabitants who made the moa extinct but the train has to go slow because they do not want to kill children jumping off the rail bridges. Lives have been lost over time on this bridge discipline your children or divert the line down the expressway away from the problem

The lives of your mukapuna and tameriki matter, BLM, all lives matter
