Schoolgirls’ binge drinking shame I’ll leave you to read the article, but apparently schoolgirl binge drinking is now so bad that it’s starting to exceed school boy binge drinking. So what? Well now we get our femifolk calling on government action, because it’s girls that are affected!

http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/7994731/Family-violence-at-horrendous-levels Yay! Domestic Violence is New Zealand’s growth industry! Women and children have a 25% chance of being injured, killed, assaulted or abducted in DV incidents in New Zealand! And that makes no mention whatsoever of victims who do not suffer one of these golden four physical violances – those that have no injuries etc. […]
Robert Whiston has republished a comparison of child safety in married families and other types of families. There is quite a lot of public debate, where advocates present partial and misleading statistics. In my opinion, Robert has quoted the most credible international sources available. Cheers, MurrayBacon.
Addressing a meeting of MPs and staff in Parliament last week on child poverty, Professor Jonathan Boston noticed that he was the only man in the room. Boston is co-chairman of the Children’s Commissioner’s advisory group on solutions to child poverty. The NZHerald article Men called to step up for kids, accuses men of “leaving […]
Leeanna Marie Hodgetts, 39, seduced, raped and abucted a child. However you will never see the NZ media report it that way. You certainly will never see NZ courts treat it that way. The reason? Leeanna Marie Hodgetts, is a female.
Further to my post re: letter to Peter Dunne querying why CSA does not pass on allegations of benefit abuse to WINZ in the case of a custodial parent receiving voluntary child support payments; I have had a reply back from his office and have been advised ‘a change had been made to the Tax […]
Judging by the list of organisations supporting this book, I doubt that it is intended as an instruction manual, so don’t get too excited. If keeping women in line was as easy as the White Ribbon hate campaign insists, I’m sure our society would be very different from the way it is! I’ll read and […]
There is an internet encyclopaedia which offers well written information about early childhood development: ENCYCLOPEDIA on Early Childhood Development http://www.child-encyclopedia.com/en-ca/home.html Parents aiming for shared parenting will usually benefit from a better understanding of child development. I would suggest that all parents would benefit from a better understanding of this topic. I have a USA Parent […]
Examples of Working Accountability NZ Parliamentarians are required to register the nature of their assets. The public may use this to investigate possible conflicts of interest. This register is also available to profit media, although they don’t make much use of it, same say it is boring! UK Register of Members Interests UK Register USA […]
Interesting article from Ireland. At issue is a referendum that would redefine the role of government in helping children the government determines may be in need of assistance. While it sounds to some like a praiseworthy goal, the analysts have doubts. “The threshold of intervention “¦ reveals this new approach: “when the safety or welfare’ […]
Hit squad targets parents on run in Oz That’s right. Track you down; seize your assets, seize your partner’s assets. Seize your house (who needs a place for the kids to sleep when they come to stay?). House arrest in the country of your choice. You can’t escape me! You can’t outrun me! I’m Peter […]
http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/7903165/Loving-dads-year-of-torment This is just sick. Wtf has our society come to? This is anti-male bias at it’s best – or worst, which ever way you look at it. Welcome top New Zealand 2012. I was out in public last week. With my daughter. She was clinging to me as little miss’s are prone to do. […]

FYI, I sent the following to Francios Barton, Ministry of Innovation, Business and Employment concerning a news article today: I sent the following to journalist Natalie Akoorie regarding her NZ Herald article on a construction work safety campaign. The article suggests that the use of the word ‘people’ in referring to workplace deaths and injuries […]
Media Release Dunne claims child support amendment formula will be fairer: Yeah Right Long time child support reformer, Jim Nicolle, describes Peter Dunne’s claim that the new child support formula would be fairer as a ‘Tui Billboard’.
The Ministry of Men’s Affairs recently challenged the NZ police for making a public claim that domestic violence call outs had increased during an All Blacks match. The police have finally responded acknowledging that they had not been able to find any significant link between family violence and rugby matches.
Principal Family Court Judge Boshier has made what is described as his last speech in the role. Guess where? Yep, at the Women’s Refuge annual conference. Radio NZ has today been pushing his call in that speech to make domestic violence a separate criminal offence. Various feminist sympathizers have agreed but the only real advantage […]
