Real junk mail

Julie Neighbourly Lead from Havelock North

I found an interesting flyer in my letterbox. It’s a “petition” to end the Chinese government.
It is possibly one of the most racist pieces of American propaganda I’ve ever read.

Yup American.

After wending my way through their websites, I found it originates in Flushing, NY. Home of Fran Drescher, aka The Nanny.

I had wondered when I saw the face on it most definitely wasn’t Chinese, but very European.

The rubbish inside and on their websites spouts a lot of Trumpian ideals about the “Chinese Virus” and the “Demon” Chinese Communist Party bloodthirsty terrorist organisation.

While we may not support the Chinese government, or their secrecy and anti democratic policies, this rubbish is at best pointless (a foreign petition is not going to get rid of the Chinese government, only the Chinese people can), at worst inflammatory and provocative (it could be interpreted as a call to violence, and that’s never a good idea).

The only way to end a bad government is with good people. Today’s USA is a fair relevant example.

Bin this rubbish. It’s not even recyclable, due to the type of high gloss paper used.

HAS ANYBODY ELSE HAD TROUBLE .

John from Havelock North

Just prior to Christmas our neighbour had trouble with their water 'eating' through their copper pipe coming from the toby to their house. Not once did they repair the damaged copper pipe, but three times. Each time they repaired the line a new leak appeared. They then gave up and replaced the whole waterline.

Now we are experiencing exactly the same problem.

Has anyone else in Havelock North had similar issues due to chlorine being added to our water supply?
