Peter Dunne all talk and no action

Filed under: General — Scrap_The_CSA @ 10:28 am Wed 12th May 2010

Thanks to Allan Harvey and the UOF for responding to Radio New Zealand – who I understand  picked up  the story from the  MENZ website posts (Act 1 and Act 2)

The story aired on Morning Report this morning .

Dunne is still doing nothing – 7 years of broken promises and an intransigent Cabinet that appears to ignore him and is more interested in collecting debt than the impact of this unworkable, unfair and unreasonable scheme.

Please email your reasoned comments and stories  ON CHILD SUPPORT LAW REFORM to [email protected]

We have a small start in bringing pressure for reform on Cabinet lets maximise the oppurtunity.




  1. My email to morningreport reads: “The reality for many separated dads is that their children spend less than the magic 146 nights per year in their care. This makes them liable for child support. In other words, a dad who’s children are in his care for 145 nights per year must not only pay full child support, he must also provide for his children while they are in his care.”

  2. Get real Pete,
    We want Child Support even if Dad has 146 nights.
    Some blokes I chase have their children 219 nights (60% of nights) and they still owe $1500 a month to their poor wee ex. It matters not if they pay all the outgoings for clothes, school fees, extra-curricular activites etc. Having shared care does not get you out of paying Child Support.
    If the poor wee dear has moved in with Mr Mega Millionaire Playboy the other parent needs to pay. Of course the poor wee dear can’t be expected to have the children often as she and $playboy spend over half the year in Monaco playing the tables there.
    You are a deluded soul if you think having the children less than 220 nights will save you much child support. We give small discounts for shared care but it is all about keeping up the income of the poor wee dears.
