Declaration of Equality

There shall be one law for all:
  • I refuse to accept any reference to the Treaty of Waitangi or its principles in any constitutional document.
  • I require that such references be removed from all existing legislation.
  • I require that race-based Parliamentary seats be abolished.
  • I require that race-based representation on local bodies be abolished.
  • I require that the Waitangi Tribunal, which has outlived any usefulness it may have had, be abolished.

"unlikely to be detrimental to public safety"

Palmerston North coroner Tim Scott should be applauded for the bold moves he made this week to lift the veil of secrecy and shame surrounding suicide

About bloody time.

The law effectively assumes that publishing the circumstances of a suicide compromises public safety, but allows coroners to override that assumption. They rarely do.

Like any other tragedy we clamour to read about, suicide should be reported with all details.
