POOLS OF SATISFACTION Our summer pools were built by us. Blends in well did cause no fuss. With hydro slide will cause a splash. And to it many people dash. Through native bush we twist and wiggle. From the children brings a giggle. Severn days a week the place is open. Hot summer days we all are hopen!

Anyone listening to and watching Parliament, especially Question Time, might get the impression that it’s all animosity and aggravation between the parties, but that’s not generally the case. Obviously it’s the job of the National Party to use the media to try to paint a negative picture of the Government and be very vocal about any and every issue they can. Most of it is theatre, but the real work is done in select committees, where the public’s views on legislation are considered and the performance of government departments are scrutinised. I actually feel a little sorry for the opposition MPs as they now are being exposed at select committees to the serious underfunding and lack of investment in basic infrastructure over recent years. While the goal of the previous government to run a surplus might have been lauded by some, the reality of it is all our businesses, and even our home budgets could be in the black if we didn’t do

the basic maintenance.

Thank goodness the proposed tax cuts were cancelled or there would be no money to keep our basic services operating. I’m enjoying being part of a Government that ensures basic services are maintained and improved. You will continue to see negative attacks from National through the media; it’s their job. But rest assured that the real business of ensuring the needs of all New Zealanders now and in the future are being attended to, and don’t be concerned about the peripheral issues which, while they make good headlines, don’t have any impact on Ōhāriu or the country as a whole. We’re well into autumn now, and the winter sports are underway. Here’s hoping the great run of weather continues. Greg.OConnor@parliament.govt.nz
