Mr Goff – the people need you
The appointment of an outright bigot like Brian Neeson to the Human Rights Review Tribunal is a dangerous escalation not just for National Party homophobia, but with the abattoir conveyor belt of TV screen justice Simon Powers wants to ram through that will see the dismantling of 40% of Juries so that it becomes a de facto unemployment policy to dump people straight into the privatized shipping container prison cells, appointing a Human Rights vandal like Neeson onto the tribunal most likely to review those human rights abuses under National is an insult to our collective intellect.
Phil Goff must release a press release now that if the people of NZ decide that National are a wolf in sheep’s clothing and elect Labour at the next election then Brian Neeson would be removed from the Human Rights Review Tribunal within the first 100 days.
Brian Neeson is a bigoted homophobe who has intellectually argued AGAINST human rights for groups he hates, like homosexuals, people with AIDs, women’s right to abortion. Allowing this bigot to stay on the Human Rights Review Tribunal is an affront to everything human rights stand for.
Appointing Brian Neeson to the Human Rights Review Tribunal is like appointing Paul Henry to the Broadcasting Standards Authority. Phil Goff must show people that this bigot has no place within the system we use to review human rights in this country.
