I am surprised and shocked to find that Cook Islands News has decided on a policy of not allowing non de plume names for letters to the editor.
Thomas Wynne’s column “In Sickness and in Health” (Opinion, July 13) states: “one cannot look at our history from 1915 to 1965 and dismiss the critical role ... our Ariki and Mataiapo have played in where we are today”.
The merit of “anolyte” is its ability to kill germs, bacterium, protozoa, and viruses, unlike chlorine which fails to eliminate all the major nasty bugs, and just ends up smelling and tasting of the chemical chlorine.
By now Mark Brown, the deputy prime minister, must be thinking he can walk on water.
The problem with statistics is they can be taken out of context and used to misrepresent the whole, as we have seen with the chlorine debate.
We recently spent a lovely two weeks in Rarotonga. Lovely, that is, except for a chaotic failure to connect with wifi.
I am against the chlorination of our water. I have tasted chlorine in drinking water in New Zealand and dislike the smell and taste of it, it’s horrible.
