Scoop article

quoting Dalziel

I understand that you are also very close to concluding (or recently have concluded) a two-year contract with the Ministry of Social Development, which will give you certainty about ongoing core funding. The challenge though is to ensure that funding levels remain realistic over time.

It wasn’t the justification I was pointing out it was the 2 year funding contract from the government. What also concerns me is that the new charities commission having the power to deregister charities for political intent. If you don’t suit the politics of the day we will deregister you, if you suit the politics of the day we will fund you.

  1. The Ministry of Women’s affairs has issued so many overwraught exagerated stats during it’s time that I’m skeptical about Dalziel’s claims on the level of violence against women in nz. The same ministry has previously claimed that 1 in 4 women has been sexually abused and that there’s an ‘epidemic’ of violence against women in nz. Check their literature. You’ll see it’s there in black and white.
    What disturbs me further is how Dalziel starts out her address to refuge by talking about violence against women, deliberately delineating it from other forms of violence in the family. Then did you notice she continues to talk about family violence – as though family violence and violence against women were one and the same thing!
    In my book she can’t be so thick as to not know what she’s doing.
    That makes her violent.
