  1. A little off the subject of fathers day activities but.

    Wonderful to read of Geoffery Palmers suggestion that the Family Court decide on euthanasia.
    When a man makes this application:

    Finally an application from men that the NZ Family Court are likely to direct as appropriate.
    This is likely to be directed right away, with out delay.
    The female Court Coordinators may well circumvent as much process as they can in order to facilitate such an application quickley.

    It may be that this quick turn around and directions which reflect the application will be touted as “reforms which work” men’s applications are being dealt with quickley and with the court in agreement with the application.

    Perhaps via the family court process men and fathers will finally recieve an expeditious, cost effective finite outcome which the other side will not ignore with out repercussion.

    It may be that the suggestion of Sir Geoffery will add weight to the story of reforms which work for men.

  2. mmm, good thinking Simon grant. Truth is the Family Court has been deciding on euthanasia for a very long time by driving many men to suicide.

  3. Good point man x norton.
    I feel sure any application a man makes to the family court for euthanasia could simply be handled by the security guard at the door with a “yes stamp”, no point in bothering the registrar with that one.

  4. So much for Father’s day. Yesterday Herald site – an article “10 worst fathers!”
    Today in Stuff “when parenthood goes beyond blood ties” – only real dads are missed out. Would they do this for Mothers on mothers day…… yeah right….
