Wed 25th April 2007:

I’m Nigel Costley, a Nelson-based journalist, writing a story on blokes in teaching, specifically Nelson College headmaster Gary O’Shea’s idea of training teachers at his college.

Five Percenters

Sun 22nd April 2007:

To all the five percenters — the rest of us have had enough! Get Over It! Whats a Five percenter? It’s that five percent of men who act like absolute wankers when a separation occurs.

Sex Wars – Gender wars

I am hoping that readers were able to watch the first documentary of four episodes being televised by ‘Inside New Zealand’, TV3, Thursday nights. I found the first to be a laugh and was happy ‘Kim and Corbett’ were a part. Alot of discussion is happening about Genders on many radio stations presently. But it […]

In his speech to the Salvation Army yesterday, Mr Key told how he sees domestic violence… ? “The trials (Louise Nicholas) throw light on a pattern of behaviour and an attitude towards women which persists in this country.

You be the judge?

Tue 10th April 2007:

Many people don’t seem to think that they have access to this appeal. I am not sure how this could be so, in a modern democracy?

Child Abduction – Does the familycaught know what it is doing?

Below, I attach two papers by judge jan doogue, presented in 2003 and 2004, one supporting that judges should give (almost illegal?) support to mother abductors and the other suggesting that maybe father’s relationships with their children are being damaged without reason by familycaught.

While our children may currently be suffering a degree of state enforced illiteracy, there is an older majority of the population, who are […]
