    Bevan, where can I find this information from.

  3. Bevan Berg says:

    Given what transpired it is probably not on the HRC website, but I am sure if you use the media email link they would ‘happily’ supply you with a copy of the release.

  4. julie says:

    Thanx Bevan, you are right, it is not on the HRC’s site.

    If you had something to do with holding them back, well done.

    @julie
    Thanks for posting that for NZ readers.

    For those who are unfamiliar with Segolene Royal she was the socialist candidate in the French presidential election earlier this year. She tried the same gambit a couple of days before the election when the polls had them neck and neck. She ended up losing by about fifteen percent after women, rightfully feeling patronised, deserted her in droves.

    Voting is a privilege.
    It should be on the basis/assumption that the person is educated.
    So they can make an informed decision.
    I think letting children vote is wrong.
    If the adults get it wrong.
    They can change it when they become adults.

    I for obvious reasons.
    Like I am not registered as an elector.
    Will not be voting.

    I can say however.
    I like.
