The David Bain conviction quashed: SST/HOS
So many issues, the Privy Council’s savaging of the Police investigation and our Appeal Court process, the mental impact on Bain and the horror of 13 years inside for supposedly killing your family, Joe Karem is an absolute hero in every sense of the word – can we trust our judicial system?
Kirwan campaign a success, but no services for men needing to talk: SST
We are an uptight and emotionally damaged bunch here in NZ, men have to live up to a weird macho masculinity that robs them of any emotional vocab other than anger – so the $6.4million John Kirwan ad campaign asking for men to reach out is great, except for the fact that the services don’t exist to help men cope, in stead of counseling most GPs are forced to write out anti-depressant medication.
NZ Judge slams Blair for war crimes: SST
Justice Ted Thomas in a hard hitting essay published in The Spokesman has attacked retiring British Prime Minister Tony Blair in legal terms for effectively being a war criminal – what will Blair’s legacy be?
Tests on Vets: SST
Massey University tests are due out tomorrow that will show NZ vets who were used as guinea pigs during Christmas Island Nuclear Tests have had their DNA damaged by radiation.
Trouble at TVNZ mill: SST
Bill Ralston’s wife has walked from TVNZs Close Up programme because of the restructuring – at a time when TVNZ is pulling ahead in the news ratings while Campbell Live trips over itself to be a magazine programme for rich white women living in Parnell. Will TVNZ home goal while Campbell Live home goals? Who is winning the current affairs battle, and are we the Public better informed?
‘Fishing Tragedy’ and ‘rude film’ played at Police Commissioners house in the 1980s: HOS
Tabloid yawns from the HOS – attempting to paint the family of the two kiddies drowned last week as pot smoking drinkers is distasteful and the ridiculous beat up on the cops over a blue movie played at a rugby club fundraiser in the home of the current Police Commissioner in the 1980s based on all things from an investigate magazine report is so underwhelming one can only imagine how desperate the HOS editorial team were when dreaming this headline up.
