MeToo Hysteria hits New Zealand
New Zealand may never be the same again.
No, it’s not an update on the Prime Minister’s baby.
The breaking news this morning; An arrest is made into an incident at a NZ Labour Party Youth Camp at Waihi last March.
While the country’s national broadcaster played by the rules and broadcast the relevant facts our women’s media sites are hitting a hysterical high note.
The Newsroom Blog, including an interview with one of the complainants as this matter heads to the court room door, is linked to by Stuff.co.nz – our main commercial broadcaster.
One has to feel for this young man, 20 years old, having this over his head for weeks as the propensity of politicians to cover up bad news was worked through and seemingly a political party’s internal investigation has taken priority over the criminal investigation by the police.
One fears for the independence of our police especially after the recent decision by our Police Commissioner to make a statement in relation to the Prime Minister’s partner Clarke Gayford.
The boy’s parent/parents subjected to an immediate trial by media on the news of this arrest as an unhealthy liason between one of the complainants and a reporter sufaces.
Today should be a day that raises the conciousness of any concerned citizen to Red Alert.
How in hell did we get here?
