Dear editor,

I think it is timely to remind ourselves that our relationship with New Zealand is a two way street.

Kia orana, ​

I thought the articles on the prime minister, the leader of the opposition, and the Democratic Party's Titikaveka MP in your paper last week, re their respective positions on the motorcycle helmet law, were great. ​

Dear editor,

I believe John Makuru is at fault (“Who Polices the Police,” June 6), causing the motor vehicle accident he was involved in outside Charlie’s café in Titikaveka.

Dear editor,

With the repatriation of stranded Cook Islanders having been completed successfully, and as a member of the first cohort, I take great pleasure in expressing my sincere gratitude to the following groups of people and organisations that have made it possible for this to happen.

Dear editor,

I have said it before several times that this government has failed the Cook Islands people miserably on a number of economic fronts.

Dear editor,

Is it not a trifle misleading and disingenuous for the Minister to be placing all the emphasis on the potentially less damaging exploration argument as opposed to mining?

Kia orana editor,

I happened to read the letter from Alan Richardson in yesterday’s paper on the need to reopen borders at both ends. I certainly agree with him on that. 

Dear editor,

As a Kiwi living in the Cooks, I have been watching the situation with border control and opening with interest.

Dear editor,

Self-determination in the Northern Group islands is dead. Let's look at the pearl industry.
