The moral fabric of society won't fly apart, in fact if anything it will be quite a boring change. We need to debate bigger picture stuff. This is child's play. Let's legalise it.
Macsyna is a proven bad mum. Of the six children she has bought into this world, she appears currently responsible for none. Admittedly two were murdered. But when Child, Youth and Family took the last child into its care, it was quoted as saying the child was "malnourished" and "neglected".
Second, she is a self-confessed doper and drunk and just happened to be one during the care of both the Kahui twins and her youngest 12-month-old child. Everything about her care, according to testimony at the Kahui trial, ran counter to the most basic concept of mothering.
That included the seeming indifference to the plight of the prematurely born twins when first brought into this world at at Starship hospital. Red flags were apparent even then.
And let's never forget the pathologist report. That the children had suffered broken bones days and weeks before their fatal bashing.
Then there was her immediate post-murder reaction. The police described all involved - including herself and her half-brother - as obstructive. The impression that we received was of someone selfish and self-absorbed, satiated only by substances. I still have that impression and the whininess of this week only acts as further evidence. But mostly Macysna - the reason that you won't be getting a sorry - is that you are the embodiment of all that is wrong with our welfare indulgence. You are exactly the kind of person who shouldn't be having kids because you can't really care. The nurturing gene is absent.
We have seen. We have observed. And whether you were in that bedroom that night or not - we know that there is a stain you can't wash out no matter how many reports, how many lawyers, and how many tears you may wish to shed.
Because the truth is: if you had been a half-decent mum, the Kahui twins would be alive today.
Arts, Culture and Heritage Ministry Chris Finlayson says disestablishing the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra is unthinkable
The NZSO is a jewel in the cultural crown. There is no question of its survival under this Government.

Mr Ward also described the long term plan process as the "most unpleasant part of being a councillor". He described it as "four days of listening to people tell us how much they don't like us"
suggested yesterday that one way for people to make paying rates more affordable was to "flog off one of the family cars", make cuts in other areas of household and personal spending, and make some lifestyle changesMaybe Mr Councillor you might find ways to reduce council extravagances, rather than continually raising rates via your unaffordable choices.
KiwiRail was forced to replace sub-standard brakes on all of its 500 Chinese made freight wagons before they entered service last year.
Documents obtained under the Official Information Act show initial tests found that when fully loaded to 72 tonnes gross the wagons failed to stop within the code requirement of 650 metres.
KiwiRail says the quickest, simplest and most cost effective solution was to replace the brake blocks with a marginally higher-friction version.
In a statement, it said KiwiRail carried out this work directly but any additional costs were borne by the manufacturer under warranty.
Dunedin South MP Clare Curran, who has been critical of the decision to send the wagon work offshore, says she's appalled
extracting shale gas, as as is done in Britain, is different from the fracking that occurs in Taranaki. Shale gas is shallower and takes a lot more effort to fracture, therefore, if shale gas is safe, "people can be certain the fracturing that occurs here is doubly safe".
"We find we check off against the list of recommendations. We are up there delivering best practice."
Key last night alleviated the Maori Party's greatest concern - that the Government would override any Maori interest over water with foreshore and seabed type law - by giving an assurance the Government would not legislate away their rights and interests.

Ms Delahunty said it was concerning that the consent was granted without public notificationThe public of Stewart Island was notified via an ad in their local rag for a public meeting to be held on 11th April 2012. (almost bottom right corner of pdf) You'd think in a community of 400, this would be news. Apparently not, till the greenie liars recently went for a media beat up on the issue.
More than 50 Stewart Islanders have signed a petition against the decision to allow a gas exploration well
Southland District Council granted Greymouth Petroleum consent for the exploration well on Thursday after a non-notified process, which does not require public consultation

National standards data provided by schools is too "ropey" to show parents how well a school is doing in reading, writing and maths and may not be released this year
it's extremely patchy and in different formats and that will make it very difficult to interpret - but over time the Government hopes it will be more consistent because the purpose of having information is to give parents a better sense of how their school is performing
