The freedom to enjoy the sounds of nature away from the bustle of camping grounds should not be curbed. Many visit the Coromandel especially for its natural features. No one has the right to stop another enjoying this God-given right.

Your ability to create comprehensible sentences has been marginalised. Probably when your mother slammed the toilet lid on your head when she caught you drinking out of the bowl.

Our scenic views have "parking fees" of US$3.00. What is reprehensible are the litterers, they will throw their trash anywhere, even alongside the trash bins.

I have heard the scenic delights of New Zealand are beyond compare. I would hate to think of them getting trashed.

Instead of fines for wrong doers, how about bonuses for right doers?

The veto was a strange statement to make since no one knew the govt was suposedly intending on cashing out in the first place.

THey just decided to tell the media it wasn't going to happen.
