The Busker

Filed under: General — Julie @ 6:01 pm Sat 16th September 2006

I don’t know how many of you are getting information on the work Benjamin Easton is doing. He is part of the Father’s Coalition so if you are on their mailing list you probably know.

But to the rest of you IMO he is similar to Wayne’s unusual tactics to protest and educate the public.

Benjamin is in Wellington living on the street and ‘Busking for his supper’. I don’t have the full picture but I think he just decided he was doing this and he just, “Up and went to Wellington.” But while he has been doing this (for weeks) he is writing to polititions, inviting them to discuss matters, organising events and talking to those that walk by day and night. He has some very interesting conversations and sometimes I think he reminds me of just what life is all about for I often don’t have time to just be “still.”

But anyhow here are interesting stats he has collected frm the public.

Question: Is New Zealand corrupt?

Yes — 50 No — 31

Question: Are we homophobic?

Yes — 45 No — 29

Question: Are we racist?

Yes — 56 No — 22

Question: Do children need their dads?

Yes — 846 No — 89

Comment: Would the public stampede to protect their’ children to need their dads?

Question: When parents split up, should there be a presumption of shared equal
parenting before they reach the court?

Yes — 250 No — 39

Question: If the media are given a “truth” or fact, and that truth is serious or
“in the public and general interest” should legislation be written to force the
media to publish that truth to either an authority or public?

Final: Yes – 136 No — 37

Question: Can judges (court of law) demand the truth?

Final: Yes – 243 No – 119
