Several month ago (161 days ago to be exact, but don't ask me to do the math on that) I posted a message sharing how disappointed I was to find that Countdown bread contains Sulphites. As this substance is linked to bowel cancer I wondered about the wisdom of putting it in our bread. Or anything else for that matter. Since then Countdown has changed its bread labeling, putting at the end of the label (who actually reads this) that it MIGHT contain Sulphites. I'm now even more disappointed in Countdown. Their sneaky bread labeling is downright devious. Telling someone the product might contain a chemical is just not informative. How can one make an informed purchasing decision when the product may or may not have the chemical they are seeking to avoid? Why should food producers be able to get away with this? If the brand is produced on the same production line as other foods containing sulphites, but doesn't actually have sulphites added, this should be stated. Maybe they are making bacon with sulphites added along with the bread, but somehow I doubt it. So, come on Countdown, how about coming clean on this, what's the real story here?
Wellington is in a spin over e-scooters, with the city council receiving nearly 5000 submissions ahead of a decision on whether 800 electric scooters, operated by Uber-owned Jump and local startup Flamingo, will stay on the streets for the duration of an 18-month trial. What do you want to happen to the e-scooters?

A Waikanae cafe owner has been told she has to move a picnic table off the public walkway outside her business, or pay for a licence.
Take a look at the attached story and let us know what you think. Is it a fair request from the council or a step too far?
