Salient Poll


This weeks Salient Poll: Should there be an 'H' in W(h)anganui?

The answer of course is no. There is no H in Whanganui. Or Wanganui. Or W(h)anganui, for that matter. But nobody is even suggesting Wanganui will be amended to WHanganui.

Dumb poll. The real question is, should there be an 'h' in Wanganui? The answer is Yhes.

The next question is where to put it. Wanghanui anyone?

All good points. We also need to discuss how we say "h".

Is it Aussie style "haytch" or Kiwi style "aytch" ?

Or does it become a silent h? And if so, why not an invisible one too?

Here, there are three h's in "Wanganui", but they are all silent and invisible.

Hey Dave,

This poll was in response to Laws statement "I also note that every internet poll on this issue is running 2-to-1 or 3-to-1 in favour of Wanganui's name retention."

And, if you hadn't noticed ALL ONLINE POLLS ARE DUMB.
